My self-summary
My Dad used to introduce me to his friends- "this is my baby, Mary Jo. She's been self sufficient since the age of two!" I'm grateful for every time he said that.

A friend just texted me- "You are such a couple kinda woman." And she is spot on! No fun by yourself. I share. I support. I'm cooperative. I thrive on partnership, couple activities- dining out, backgammon, kissing. MY two for one deals aren't worth a damn on my own.

I'll be blunt. I've had enough short guys from all over the world message me. I want a TALL MAN. Taller than 6'2". I don't need you to be on assignment in Egypt, or at an oilfield in Thailand by way of New York. LOCAL. At least within a few hour drive. While it's romantic to think love can be had from any distance, I'm here to tell you, it takes more than a few emails and a meeting or two to get it right. I'm not looking for a pen pal. I want a forever PARTNER. Someone that I can be comfortable spooning with. If you can't fill the bill, please move on.

There is so much more to this search than finding the man that makes my heart flutter when I SEE him. Sex and romance can be fun, but I'm also looking for long term. That includes someone that takes a commitment seriously. If you have been divorced multiple times, or sired children with multiple women, we may have a serious difference in moral values. I take "until death do us part" pretty seriously!

Life is about enjoying all the opportunities we have, experiencing the great wonders of the world. And it seems to be more enjoyable when shared. Travel- a drive to the coast or mountains. Longer adventures to Europe or the Caribbean. I'm referred to as "the Travel Queen" by family and friends. I'm known for getting really great deals to great places. When I get there, I can't just sit by the pool. There is a rental car involved. If I'm near water, there will be a catamaran adventure, snorkeling, parasailing or whale watching. I had a black marlin on the hook one time in Zihuatanejo. I circled Aruba on a Harley. I saw the sunrise from the top of Haleakala on Maui. I can't imagine doing any of that on my own.

FINALLY! I am able to call Port Hadlock my only home!! Still renovating, I'll be unpacking boxes for the next decade. But currently "retired", I have some spare time to get it done. Would you like to be my "diversion"??
What I’m doing with my life
I used to design kitchens for Lowe's in Salem to keep the creditors away. Currently "retired", but that could change if I find the right gig.

When I take a vacation, it is somewhere AWAY. I love to travel and favorite destinations include Mexico, the Caribbean, Europe.

The new place has only a third of an acre... I left the llamas in Oregon! I still have quite a bit of renovating to complete- I'll be busy with my nail gun and tile saw for quite a while.

I treasure each opportunity I have to give back to the community. My favorite charity is the local Fire station- I look forward to dropping off garbage bags full of toys for the local kids each Christmas.
I’m really good at
Home improvement. Kissing. Reaching the top shelf in the grocery store. Finding great travel deals.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height. My smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Book- "The Art of Racing in the Rain". Movies: "The Wizard of Oz" and "The Bucket List". "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" and "On Golden Pond". Shows: "Grey's Anatomy" and "Scandal". Music- it's an eclectic mix of Toby Keith, Journey and Coldplay. (no jazz or rap). Food- Anything that swims- crab, lobster, rainbow trout. Chocolate.
The six things I could never do without
Companionship. A vehicle. A credit card. A saws-all. Chocolate. Kisses lasting longer than 10 seconds.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Rearranging my new walls in Washington. Little by little, I'm making choices and completing my projects...
Finding a new long-term companion. Looking at profiles on line, and wondering why people post blurry, grainy, crooked or otherwise uncomplimentary photos of themselves. Looking at same photos and wishing I could give these people a haircut or shave...
Also wondering why people who have quit searching leave their profiles on line for us serious lookers to waste our time on.
Finding someone to snowbird with me in a warm winter climate.
On a typical Friday night I am
When you are retired, no day is ever "typical"! It's FRIDAY???
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
It takes awhile for me to admit my private details!
You should message me if
You're looking for a sincere, honest, respectable and trustworthy companion who loves to laugh. You like to travel. And you don't put much stock in the OKC graphs- because these people think I am more "sloppy"!!
