In her own words

Try to be as positive as I can, nice and good to people. Sometimes to a fault as I tend to trust too much. I'm a planner and list-maker, organize things and do research for fun. I'm a Republican, CPA, MBA, and a member of MENSA...so in a nutshell, am a bit of a handful. Not at all the traditionally desirable passive and coddling little lady. Will give you my undying love. But I say what I think and won't take any of your...well...I'm strong-willed but open-minded. Am serious a lot of the time, but also giggly and fun-loving. Am a bit of a "square", have kind of a geeky sense of humor. Have focused on my work, school, and my son (who is now 20 and living in up-state New York) for many years and forgot about myself. I'd like to relearn how to have a life of my own and how to have fun. I like coffee shops, trees, books, hiking, museums, chili cheese hot dogs, live theatre, yoga, and lived in Nashville for a number of years so really LOVE concerts and listening to live music and acoustic singer/songwriters. Have a passion for music and dancing. Took gymnastics, modern jazz, and ballroom dance so really love it. Also used to play instruments and sing, published poetry and did a lot of artwork, so I guess just appreciate the arts in all forms. Am exceptionally loyal and am very honest about my feelings. If I give myself to you, then I'm only yours until I'm not. I expect the same from you. Want very much to give all the love I have to give, but am careful and selective about who I give it to, and do expect that when I give it, it is given faithfully in return. I'm German, Ghanan (with the hair and butt to prove it, as such am a big fan of hair weaves), Scotch-Irish, and Native American (mostly Chippewa, a little Sioux). Just started learning to speak Spanish. As far as a perfect match, I'm not sure there is such a thing. But would like to find the one that's right for me. IN A PERFECT WORLD, someone *laid-back, easy-going, and calming *intelligent and self-motivated *dependable/reliable *sensitive and knows when to just listen and be supportive, but challenges themself and me *willing to give as much as they are willing to take *IS HONEST *knows what a commitment means and isn't always on the hunt for greener grass *sensitive, appreciates and respects women, but knows how to actually be a man *passionate...for life, for love, and the things they believe in, even if I don't agree *doesn't care if they get cut off in traffic *will help an old lady with her groceries *uses the manners their mama taught them *makes me feel alive again *will take me on a picnic and for a ride in a canoe *calms my head and slows me down *makes me feel like a woman and treats me like one *doesn't want anything from me but who I am...and is willing to figure out what that is. I do not like nor want the company of self-absorbed narcissistic people who have big egos and see themselves as better than others, expecting your devotion with no desire to be there for you in return. I want a man that knows he's all that but doesn't know at the same time, and appreciates that you give him the time of day. It goes both ways. Both should feel humble and lucky to be with the other, and willing to work to keep them. Humble confidence is extremely attractive. NOT interested in the partiers or players. I'm smarter than I look, I'll know when you lie to me, regardless of the tricks you may have. So please don't waste my time or attempt to break my heart with lies and games. Not looking to get married tomorrow, but do have a desire for a committed/exclusive relationship. Eventually maybe there will be someone I like being with more than anyone else. If I'm lucky they feel the same way. I'm realistic, but optimistic..."Never give up, for that is just the place and time the tide will turn." ~Harriet Stowe
