I am truly a lucky girl. I live in the most beautiful place in the world, I have a wonderful family, and I am one of the fortunate few to love what I do for work. I'm independent, yet my family is the core of my life. My children are my greatest gift, and I'm one of eight kids myself. I have a real passion for alternative health, which I incorporate into my work. I'm a hard worker, and I really enjoy my life. But I also know more than most how to have a good time. I'm fun, but shy. Do you think you can draw me out? I love the simple things, just like anyone. Singing along to a great song in the car, dancing with my girlfriends, or just a great conversation over coffee with an interesting guy.
Recently I have found myself newly open to the kind of companionship that only a significant other can offer. As always, and in the meantime, I enjoy dating and making friends. I am trying not to get bogged down by the specifics of what I am looking for. But at the core of it, I am looking for a man with whom I share enough (but of course, not all) points of connection. I'm looking for a guy who has the capacity for intimacy, commitment and real partnership.
If you think you might be one of those guys, I think we should schedule a no-pressure, casual coffee date and then decide whether to do it again or not.
I have been divorced for over 25 years. My focus has always been my children. They both live locally, and I am grateful to see them regularly. My daughter is married and creating her own family. My son is engaged to be married next summer. He is a classical musician by day and wannabe rock star by night. It has been the blessing of a lifetime to know them.
I love my life, my family, my friends, my work. Why not have it all? Meet for coffee?
Coffee and dinner with friends
The occasional night out or party
My son's music gigs (the symphony, opera or music venues)
Rally the tennis ball around the court with my daughter
Taking a scenic walk
Projects, both my own and helping my friends and family with theirs. I love a good fix it yourself project!
Spending time with my nieces and nephews -- I have eight between the ages of six and fifteen.
Prayer and meditation
Hosting family get-togethers
Attending talks by interesting people (e.g., Authors giving a reading)
Singing and dancing but not going to Hollywood anytime soon
Beauty/wellness (I am a small business owner)
Alternatives to western medicine, nutrition, juicing. Organic consumption -- not fanatical but fairly disciplined.
Overall, I'm pretty middle of the road, but definitely on the left-side of that road. I was raised Catholic, and like most Catholics, I no longer practice. I'm spiritual, but not religious. But of course, as they say, "once a Catholic always a Catholic."
Low key. Not necessarily extravagant, but beautiful -- destination spots, fresh healthy food, walks, exploring new areas -- a night or two out to dinner and music.
I don't care about the particular era or genre of music. I just like anything you can dance to, or anything that makes you feel something. Examples: Al Green, Bonnie Raitt, Steve Miller Band, Led Zeppelin,Anthony Hamilton, BB King, Annie Lenox/The Eurythmics There was always lots of music in the family. My father sang opera, and my son, as I mentioned is a classically trained orchestral musician and a singer/songwriter.
Some college. I continually update my skills and keep current on the latest developments in my field.
