"The greatest thing you'll ever learn
is just to love, and be loved in return"
Looking for someone who can enjoy the ordinary, day-to-day life. Who likes sharing chores and projects and everyday stuff. Who is good at intimacy (not just sex, but plenty of that, too). Someone worthy of being the center of my world. Which doesn't mean money, or success, or any of that conventional tripe. But someone I can admire and adore, and who will cherish me in return.
I'm good at getting by on my own, but tired of it. A soldier or someone who was otherwise deployed sometimes would be fine - I do okay by myself, and don't feel the need to run all around town partying. If you're interested in a solid home to return to instead of a titty bar bimbo, I might be of interest to you. I am willing to do my share to maintain a relationship while apart. Did this for years with my soldier, who died a few years ago.
I may be large and imposing and willing to talk to strangers and all that, but I'm NOT a "domme" in practice or by nature. I like a man who is manly enough that I feel more feminine around him. I'm talking attitude and presence- he doesn't have to be a giant lumberjack.
I'm not a single-issue voter, and I'm not a single-issue thinker
I'm on good terms with the bus drivers, the cleaning staff, and the food service staff at work... I speak to them, I have an easy smile, and am appreciative. Goes a long way. One recently told me as I got off the bus that "as always, you have made my day a brighter one". I also tip well and give compliments.
Please be drug, disease, wife, tobacco, and NASCAR free.
I stomp in puddles and walk in the rain without an umbrella. I don't require artificial excitement to be entertained.
NOTE! I have my own job, health insurance, and house. I'm not trying to snag anyone for his insurance or housing!
At home there are always the animals, always something to clean up after or feed, or otherwise tend (I'm great at veterinary first aid and supportive care). Horses, cow, cats, dogs, chickens, turkeys, geese, ducks. Sold my pigs and goats a while back. Spring and summer there's the garden, and my roses, and winter there are my cherry trees to prune, firewood to haul. Little by little I'm tiling the floors in the house.
Training two young horses - one of my own, and one for a friend.
So nothing profound. But not as much frivolity as some folks, either.
but most folks probably just see a large redheaded woman. Who smiles easily.
The Princess and the Warrior is my favorite movie of all time.
Will read nearly anything if it's decently written. CJ Cherryh is a big favorite. Recently got a Kindle, so I'm reading all kinds of free trash.
Albinoni to the Pogues, West coast cool jazz, and even some country.
I'm not a picky eater, and would not be a good match for one. I like curry, mexican, italian, chinese, seafood... broad range. Just go easy on the salt, and skip the msg.
You are confident (not conceited) enough that you aren't intimidated.
You don't need a woman who looks like what your buddies want.
You think you might like a woman who has wired her own outside lights, re-plumbed her kitchen, and can shingle a roof.
