I like quiet and solitude, but am sociable also, am funny with one or a few other people, and more shy in a group. My hair color is genuine. Most photos are recent. My mother and 3 aunts lived into their 90's.
What's not appealing to me: drama kings, Fox News fans, or motorbikers (too dangerous), sweating the small stuff, trying to look 40 when I'm 60+, close-mindedness, rants, negative attitudes. I've experienced big ups and downs in life, and would like someone who can relate to that.
Potted life history - daughter of fresh-off-the boat Dutch immigrants, grew up in Illinois, became wild and crazy hippie the minute I went to college, then lived in England for 8 years, became a lawyer, and married an English man there. I returned to the U.S. and lived in New England for 25+ years, raised children, divorced, had a variety of businesses (from divorce mediation to selling Beanie Babies), and then returned to the law, passed the bar and became a practicing U.S. lawyer at age 59. I moved to the south in 2012, and have moved to Eugene to join two of my three children.
Write me about yourself, and I'm happy to share more!
