My self-summary
I'm the 'girl-next-door' type, with an adventurous nature. I've done quite a few interesting things in my life and don't regret any of them. There's a quote I found which says pretty much how I feel about life. "Life is not a journey with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and proclaiming "Wow! What a ride!"

What am I looking for? Affection, warmth, holding hands, hugs, kisses, intellectual conversations, passion, have adventures, compatibility. I don't want to be married, but I do want a love/partner to grow older with. It's so much more fun with someone! lol I've retired from work, but not from Life! I want to go, do, see things, but still have some 'quiet' times with AND without my partner. Also, I can compromise on a lot of things, but not on compatibility. I need to feel a sense of ease/be comfortable with my 'date'. That is foremost. Unfortunately, you can't 'feel' that by looking at someone's picture or reading their 'words'. So, I like to meet in person sooner, rather than later. Only then will you know if that 'feeling' is knowing that you are relaxed, feel your 'walls' coming down, and just enjoy talking and being with that person. However, sometimes, it takes more than once, to know the 'inside' of someone, to know if there is any 'physical chemistry' there as well. The first is more important to me. If that's there, then the 2nd will hopefully come, if its meant to be. I am looking for a boyfriend/partner/lover for a long term, monogamous relationship. I'm a one-man woman and want a one-woman man.

Also, I saw this following quote on a gentleman's profile and so agreed with it that I wanted to share it. "Here's how I see it: our youthful physique is on the wane (hell, for must of us, it's already waned) and the elements of beauty have ceased to be based on physical qualities. During this Winter of our lives and as we seek our last love, shouldn't we base our search upon less superficial qualities?" ...Well said, don't you think?

I have a passion for life and am a positive person who loves to smile and laugh (especially at myself). I'm trustworthy, spontaneous, unpredictable, attractive, intelligent & clever, love freedom, too sensitive & easily hurt, romantic on the inside(would you dance w/me in the rain? Kiss me during a tropical storm?lol), a bit eccentric, love reality and abstract, a bit rebellious when restricted, and a genuine happy spirit. I think maybe I'm an 'acquired taste' have to get used to me! THEN you'll love me! lol

I like and appreciate men who are romantic,attentive, a bit aggressive/manly, and who likes doing the 'little things'. I'm 100% committed to those I care about and who care about me.I love my jeans, but 'dress up' nice. It would be nice if you liked good old fashion holding hands,
snuggling, hugs, long, slow kisses, PDAs. I look at a guy's eyes and smile first. They tell me a lot!

*GENTLEMEN, PLEASE, if a lady has taken the time and gotten up the nerve to send you a message of interest, be considerate enough to send a response, even if your not interested! I'm sure a lot of you would want us to do the same thing. I think we are all on here looking for the same. Besides, it's just common courtesy. Your mom didn't raise you to be rude, I'm sure. So make her proud! lol Thanks!
What I’m doing with my life
Presently, I am considered "retired", but might be looking for a PT job this Summer. I like to stay active and am definitely not ready for a rocker!!!

I do my best to maintain a healthy diet and stay active, but I'm a constant 'work in progress', lol No one is perfect and I don't look for that. We all have 'little things' we'd like to 'fix', but as long as we do our best to try to say healthy & active, that's all that really counts. I would like my partner to feel the same way. I recently joined a gym and work out at least 3 or 4 times a wk. It makes me feel good, tones up my muscles, and helps me to be all I can be. I will reach my goal by the end of this year...if not sooner! I had let myself gain a few lbs that I'm not comfortable with. So I am doing something about them!! lol However, I believe that I am still a beautiful woman both inside and out!
I’m really good at
being an eclectic Aquarian!
Think outside the box. Young in mind and spirit!
Organization and juggling a budget!! lol

Oh! and kissing/hugging, too! :)
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes and smile and they usually think I'm still in my 50s, but you'll have to be the judge of that. I look in my mirror and I don't 'see' that anymore. lol I see someone with character lines from a very interesting life!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My interests are varied--beach/water, boating, camping, would love to learn how to kayak, horseback riding, playing pool, Texas Hold Em, reading, amusement parks, jewelry making, flea markets, auctions, motorcycle riding, hugs, , NFL, kisses, working out, traveling, etc. etc. Music: everything except Rap and Heavy metal, but mostly Oldies, Classic Rock, and Country. Food: Meat, Seafood (& right now low carb, lol) TV Shows: Hell's Kitchen & Nightmares, NCIS, Grimm, Lost Girl, Grey's Anatomy, HGTV, Food Channel, Castle, Bones, Face Off, etc. Books: Nora Roberts books, fiction Movies: Sweet Home Alabama, Avatar, Titanic, to name a few.
Six things I could never do without
Hard to, animals, love, flip flops in the Summer & boots in the Fall/Winter, sense of humor, friends...seriously? Too many to pick from.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what I want to do/try in the next 20 yrs or so! lol
On a typical Friday night I am
I am either out walking the boardwalk, having dinner, watching a movie, or cuddle up on my sofa watching tv alone.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a little ocd when I'm out to eat. If my steak/food isn't done the way I like/ordered it, then I WILL send it back. I'm very open and honest, so you can ask me anything. There IS something else, but you will have to ask me.
You should message me if
you have read my profile and what I'm looking for is what you are looking for as well.
The two of us
