Sorry for this, but must do this disclaimer: If you live far away...DO NOT MESSAGE ME unless you have the means to visit me often enough to get to know each other to sufficiently focus on each other.
Emails only from likely compatible men. Please note...if you expect me to have a nice body and flat belly, then you should too. Couples should see things similarly to minimize the inevitable challenges life presents. At least that's my objective.
No pic?...are you hiding from the GF, wife or the law. Please post current pics and do NOT mislead or give false impressions. Be over your divorce at least a year out. Be at peace with your past relationships. Leave them out of your next one. Children are real important but they won't be there when they move out. Show your interest knowing there will only be you and me after the kids are gone.
My quest is to find a man who shares similar interest (golfing, travel, learning), values, and principles in life as I do. A man who is confident, a source of intelligence, fun to be around, can socialize and enjoys family and friend gatherings and doesn't cast judgment. A man who takes pride in his appearance and knows how to dress up beyond cargo shorts or gym clothes. I enjoy a gentleman as I will act like a lady with class and be happy to be by your side. He would have his own impressive interest and be active in things we can enjoy either together or support each other in our individual activities/interest.
Get to know me and you'll find me to be outgoing, intelligent, socially gracious, curious, generous to a fault, independent, always smiling, joie de vivre attitude and usually on the go! (Those are the flattering things.) You'll also find me slightly sarcastic, opinionated, somewhat tenacious and often idealistic.
Newly born triathlete this past year. I love being active outdoors and tend to do everything with intensity.
Raised a country girl, but can sport a classy evening dress in sophisticated elegance. I love high-heels but not the freakishly out of place ones.
Very resourceful and industrial strength type of wife as you would find comfort knowing I have your back. I hope to find someone who can hold their own likewise or better.
Integrity is non-negotiable. I am an active member with eternal perspective. I have always had spiritual and intellectual aspirations.
I have always been the partner in the marriage pulling and initiating. I will not be an anchor or burden and think it would be refreshing to have someone with leadership, but not force through manipulation or bullying.
Hoping you will be active faithful member...but not perfect or limited to the following...
Be motivated in Family, Church, Work and Play
Be financially responsible (parasites, please pass me by.)
Be attractive in your unique way and values beauty and intelligence and isn't threatened by either.
Be healthy and enjoy healthy cooking (no habitual soda drinkers or surfeit TV watchers please)
Be active & athletic (I love sports)
Be fun, witty, flirty and playful, oh, open communication and not stingy with the compliments is very important.
Sorry this is so long....are you still with me? Here's the fun part... what I do for fun:
Golf, hiking, golf, love sand volleyball, the beach, travel (with golf), many other activities that make me smile.
Love gardening and home improvement projects. You can find me most weekends working on my yard. I enjoy the mountains, fishing, boating. Give me the sunrise and I cherish a sunset. We can sleep when it’s too hot or too cold, too dark or too windy. I actually love doing yard work in the rain. Best time. Will stop for farmer's markets and love to cook up tons of fresh veggies, grilled meats, raw nuts, seeds and fruits. If you know what quinoa is, we might get along. I enjoy entertaining.
Intrigued? and "if" we share common interest and seem compatible, send me an informative email about yourself. If you are far away with no means to meet up initially face to face (f2f), then please, it won't work. I am, however, open to moving for the right man, but if I can't get to know you well enough in person, please pass me by. I'm bored of endless emails or texting. Please, I want the real thing. If I don't want to bail on the online, don't say it's just because I'm not ready. dah! I do believe, however, that when two people find a connection and want to explore further, deeper possibilities of a committed relationship, a talk to go off line should happen. A virtual detox period prior to taking on exclusivity should happen.
Hint: A good email to get my attention is very important as a girl can suffer from diluted attention disorder. I don't want to be on here forever in search of my love so continuously keeping the merry-go-round in motion is not exactly my intention. There was a large study that revealed an interesting finding re: singles and marriage: the larger the pool of potential mates, the less likely those in the pool were to marry. Ah, musings....
The more attractive is presumed to have a vast surge of social stimulus. The good and bad of online social networking is we seem to become bi-products of a dysfunctional society, a world over flowing with sophistry.
