I am a teacher, a mom, a sister, a daughter, and a friend. I'm happy with my life and am looking to expand my social and spiritual horizons.
I am perplexed that OK Cupid rates my personality as arrogant, aggressive, and old fashioned. I would be scared away if I read that about a guy, but please don't you be. Honest, I can explain! Growing up, I never had a voice. A woman was supposed to be subservient. Remember those days? Well now, I enjoy my work, I speak out, I am confident about what I have to say, and I enjoy saying it. Is that arrogant? Is that aggressive? But I still am old-fashioned in a way. I like the gentleman to open the door for the lady. I prefer a gentle, subtle show of affection. I like getting "dressed up." I do believe in old-fashioned values--honesty, integrity, respect, consideration, civil discourse, penmanship, reading books.
Garden, daily yoga, eat healthy, reflecting on how I want to create the rest of my life. My son is college age and currently living at home; our relationship is evolving as he matures.
Skills I learned when I was growing up: read music, play a few musical instruments in addition to rubber bands, table tops, straws, and crystal glasses. I can draw, knit, crochet and sew. I am really good at grammar and spelling--a master! I'm a good driver and a fairly good dancer.
I'm good at finding stuff.... lost keys, solutions to problems, and your sore spots to massage.
I can lounge comfortably, but I can also dress up and break ice. I can make you feel like you're the most important person in the world, because to me you are.

I also think about what you and I could do together. Places I'd like to visit.
You pray for the serenity to accept the things you cannot change, the courage to change the things you can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
You maintain good health.
You like to dance, sing, smell the roses, enjoy the play of sunlight against the clouds.
You are looking for that special someone with whom you can enjoy the rest of your life.
