I'm not your queen, I'm not your princess, and I'm certainly not interested in you if you don't have a fully filled out profile.
Here's a tip to see if we might be a match: Click on the Questions tab and then filter by "unacceptable answers." If some of the answers there would mean you would find someone unacceptable, you've just saved both of us time. It's not comprehensive, but it's a good start. For example, if you are conservative/right wing politically, we are probably not a match. If you believe creationism should be taught in schools, we definitely are not a match. Etc.
I know what I want and I'm clear about it. If you're insecure enough to lie about your age, weight, etc., we are not a match.
If you like what you read and want to capture my attention, sending a message to me simply saying "hi" or asking me about my day will not suffice. If you're interested, tell me why. What in my profile caught your eye, struck a chord or tripped a trigger for you? What questions that we answered similarly let you know we are simpatico? I'm a writer and seek someone else who understands and plays with words and can show me that from the start.
A recent observation: Gentlemen, If you're still living in the same house as your wife, you're NOT separated -- it simply means she won't let you touch her pink parts any longer.
Please be local if you contact me - I have zero interest in a long distance relationship. Local means within about a 30 minute drive. Visiting the area from time to time doesnt make you local, nor does being a contractor stationed here for a few weeks or months.
Now, on to the meat:
Drown out the noise, please! I swear, if I read one more cookie cutter profile, I won't be responsible for my actions... Where's the man original enough to maintain his individuality while still flying low to avoid the radar? I eschew the same old thing too, but don't want someone who finds it necessary to publicly put down others' choices in order to SEEM different. I am filled with wonder about life and want someone who approaches life that way too.
If your MAIN or ONLY interests are camping, fishing, motorcycles, etc., we probably are NOT a match.
I am a classy, professional and well-educated 50-year old sapiosexual woman who neither looks nor acts her age. Standing just under 5'9", I have auburn/red hair and deep blue eyes, and am blessed with that archetypically female shape, the hourglass. I am warm, empathetic, sincere, vivacious, intelligent and have a great sense of humor. I read voraciously (cereal boxes to professional journals), work efficiently, bake exquisitely, play Trivial Pursuit fiercely and live succulently and passionately. My trivia skills served me well this past year, and I made it on to Jeopardy! last fall. Carpe Diem!
An English major in college, I have a deep and abiding love of language and how we use it, and I am very drawn to men who know how to express themselves and their emotions clearly.
I have very eclectic, wide-ranging and ever-changing interests in music, film, literature and art. ENFP on the Myers-Briggs temperament sorter, I am passionate in everything I do. Life is a journey of growth to me, and I am a lifelong learner. I watch my diet, workout and meditate to feed my body and my soul. If you seek a strong woman to stimulate and complement you intellectually, emotionally, spiritually and physically, you might be the one I seek. . .
I seek a man of wit, intelligence, perception, acuity, warmth, love and consciousness to learn and grow with me. He must be a non-smoker.
While age is certainly relative, I am most comfortable with men near my age to a bit older, approximately 45-60, though that is not etched in stone: If you are outside that range a bit, tell me why and how your age doesn't limit you.
I seek a man who will cherish a more old-fashioned type of relationship, with a strong male at the head of the household, with myself as a strong, warm, helpful mate by his side. "She's a doormat" you may be thinking! "No way!" I reply. Being a strong, sentient woman, I will always want to have my opinions and ideas listened to. I just believe that in any partnership, one partner needs to be the Managing Partner, the one with final veto authority, to prevent impasses. I seek a man for a partnership in life, not just a night; those looking for a mere play mate, I am not for you. I seek a real life relationship, so if all you have to offer is online or telephone communications, you are not for me. I am also a single parent (two teens, 20 and 19, who will soon be leaving the nest). I've juggled career, kids, home and avocations for years - now it's time to find romance and love again.
Are you ready for me?
