My self-summary
Note to those considering contacting me: if you come here and feel you cant talk here; if your first words are to tell me you want information from me (email, facebook, demands to go to another messenger service), please choose someone else. Additionally, if you feel the need to send me pictures of intimate parts of your anatomy, please don't. While I'm sure you're quite proud of yourself, there are just some things that should be seen later. Once seen, the mystery is gone. Be a man of mystery.

That being said, my name is Judi. Juliet is the nickname I am known as by my friends. I am a small town girl with a wide variety of interests, who is ultimately looking for a long term, meaningful relationship. I am not looking for hook ups of any sort.

I both enjoy feminine things (including dressing up to go out from time to time) and camping, fishing, etc.

I love the arts, good music, good books (yes, I even love a mindless romance from time to time), and the out of doors. Family is very important to me. I have an unabating thirst for knowledge.

I am perhaps best described as an introverted extrovert. Availability, both physical and emotional, is a must. I understand about the need for each of us to have time we can call our own but the person I will make a priority in my life must want me as a priority in his.

To paraphrase Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., I do not make decisions about the men I'm my life based on the color of their skin, but rather on the content of their character.

Communication is very important to me.
I am very loyal and very patient, which sometimes works against me, but these traits are nonetheless part of who I am and I genuinely like me. Im generally a very optimistic person but do have my days. I am known to have and voice my own opinions and beliefs, but just as importantly I love to hear and contemplate the opinions and beliefs of others (it goes back to that unabating thirst for knowledge thing).

Oh, I should point out that I am not interested in cyber sex, hook ups of any sort or in being a sidekick, friend with benefits or part of a group. I don't send nude pictures of myself anywhere at any time. Don't ask. And please, if your wife doesn't understand you, see a marriage counselor or a divorce lawyer. I'm neither and I don't want to have to lie to my mother. I'm looking to be part of a stable relationship, not a stable of relationships.
What I’m doing with my life
After what feels like many years of focusing on only one thing, I have finally finished my schooling and am in the process of rediscovering myself, my hobbies, and pleasures. My children are, for the most part, adults, although one of my children will most likely be with me for years. I am not looking for a replacement parent for her. I am a teacher.
I’m really good at
I'm an excellent parent and friend. I have a brain and I'm not afraid to use it. Oh, I also write really well. I'm sure I'll think of more, but this is a good start.
The first things people usually notice about me
Honestly, I have no idea. I'm not the kind if person to be flitting around a room, so I really dont know. I am very shy and I think I try to mask that which sometimes comes off as aloof. In actuality, it's because crowds are difficult. One on one is much easier.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I have an eclectic variety of musical interests which span everything from country to classical. Music most often on on my car radio would be old school R&B/soul, jazz and softer rock. My favorite reading has always been in the area of historical fiction, adventure, mysteries and the odd biography. My current favorite authors are Vince Flynn and Daniel Silva. My secret favorite authors (you know, the ones you love but rarely admit to) are E.L. James and Christine Feehan. I'd love to be able to say that I love the Tolkien books, but the truth is, I never could read those. Thank goodness for movies!

I love old movies across a wide variety of genres. Casablanca, The Maltese Falcon, anything with Cary Grant, spy movies, old submarine movies (Dive!Dive!Dive!!), musicals (yes, I sing along), comedies. Newer movies include chick flicks like My Phat Greek Wedding I&II, adventure/spy movies, historical movies and well... Movies (I can't really come up with a favorite)
Six things I could never do without
1. My children
2. Loyalty
3. Love in all of its many forms
4. Someone who understands me
5. Opportunities to learn new things
6. All the experiences that went into making me who I am today.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything. There are times I wish I could turn my brain off. If this question is about my soapbox, then it would have to be prejudices, and why people have them. I know. I wish I could say it was the last joke I heard.
On a typical Friday night I am
On a typical Friday night, I am probably catching up with my family or friends. But I'm always open to better ideas. Any ideas?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I rarely admit private things online and in writing. These questions have me talking more about myself than I usually do. If you have questions it'd be easier to talk about them face to face. However, I will say that blatant attempts at manipulation using guilt tactics is an immediate turn- off. I never dignify such practices with a response. I try to answer my messages. Sometimes I fail at this.
You should message me if
You like what you've read. And just to clear this up at the beginning, I am looking for something long term and reasonably local.
The two of us
