I am a fun, down to earth woman who just relocated to the area from Vermont. I consider myself an extravert and get along with most people. However, I speak my mind...tactfully. I'm pretty independant but enjoy being "pampered" every now and then (when I say pampered, I mean being taken out to dinner or something, nothing extravagant). You'll find I'm NOT high maintenance either.
I LOVE the outdoors and being with my dogs. One of my dogs is a therapy dog and we have visited schools and hospitals in the past. Another one of my dogs is a year into her training as a Search and Rescue Dog. The third one, he makes sure nobody comes in my house uninvited! ;)
Some other things you'll find me doing: shooting at the range, playing golf, or reading a good book.
I have a close family and my parents are still married after 40 years. They are very important to me. Unfortunately, they live in upstate NY.
I have never been married, but have been in a long term serious relationship before. While I'm not looking to jump right into that any time soon, I do hope I can get there again someday.
My ideal match would be a "manly man" with a soft side and sense of humor (sense of humor key). With my backround in law enforcement, I enjoy guns and would hope my match would not be "offended" by that. My match would be educated with a good job. It would be great to be able to spend time together hiking, but willing to just plop on the couch watching a good movie too.
He would be mature with life experience. I have dealt with many drunk guys as a cop and find it to be a turnoff when people drink to get drunk, all the time. Having a few beers beforeduring "the game" is perfect! Perhaps some knowledge around the kitchen too???
My match would also enjoy my passion for traveling. Before I die, I would love to drive cross country. Countries I would like to see some day: Australia, Italy, and a tour through Europe.
So if you're a man looking for a fun, attractive, independant woman to hang out with and see where things go, feel free to contact me!
