My self-summary
"Life is too short and too uncertain, let us spend it as well as we can".(author unknown). I did that quote in HS in an art class in calligraphy and still have it on my wall. It has become more true every year. Looking for someone who likes to have fun, laugh, have adventures in whatever days we have. I have many interests and love to explore new things. I think it is important to have a great sense of humor since life loves to throw curve balls at us. I like to see the glass as half full. I love to travel, have traveled in US and abroad and there are many places I still would like to see on my bucket list. Whether it be a weekend away at a B & B or a cruise or touring the state. I would also like to find someone to ride bicycles with and dance. I used to do some ballroom dancing and would love to get back to that. I like cribbage and backgammon. Love being on or in the water. Used to sail Lake Michigan a lot and from San Francisco to Catalina Is and back once for 3 wks. I don't need a man because I am never bored but I enjoy the company of a man who likes to be adventuresome too, knows how to treat a woman and it is mutual. I am as comfortable in jeans and a hoodie as in a glamourous sparkly dress or lingerie! I like to cook and go out. I enjoy entertaining and setting a great table for a few or just 2 by candlelight. I am a hugger and snuggler and want it mutually. I am a romantic at heart, loving flowers, love songs, B&Bs, fireplaces, campfires, wine, etc.!
What I’m doing with my life
I have been a student, mother, wife, best friend, teacher, optician, girl scout leader, big sister, tax preparer (17 years for fun!) and self employed for 37 years!
I’m really good at
Making people feel at ease and finding something in common. I really love to hear everyones' story and we all have one.
The first things people usually notice about me
Is my smile, green eyes and that I don't look my age!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I absolutely love to read. I like Patterson, Cussler and so many more. I belong to a dinner book club too. The last movies I saw were Skyfall, Les Miserables and Silver Linings Playbook and loved them all. I also love live theatre, just saw Rock of Ages at the PPC. As far as music, I love classic rock, 60s, country and most anything but rap. I like to watch the music reality shows (mostly I tivo them to bypass all the ads) because there is so much talent out there and some amazing stories. And yes, food: dark chocolate and seafood esp. Easier to list what I don't like: watermelon, tomatoes ( like George Carlin said, "nice on the outside, but God forgot to finish the inside") There are so many good and diverse places to eat here. It's fun to go out but I can also make a great meal!!
Six things I could never do without
Friends, family, love, hugs, God, smiles!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What's happening next!
On a typical Friday night I am
curled up by the fire watching a movie or reading or out for dinner and a movie or dancing or anything!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
.....maybe I will tell you in person???
Here is a fact not too many people would guess, I have never dyed my hair, I am still my natural color! I get complimented on my hair color and who does it and my answer is: God!
or that I am a cheesehead! Packer fan!!
You should message me if
You are a positive person, like to do a lot of things (couch potatoes need not to apply!!) are a gentlemen and know how to treat a woman. Plus for you if you have a convertible. I used to and miss it!! I have found coffee drinkers are great conversationalists but not a deal breaker:)
You are honest with integrity.
The two of us
