Let's see where to start... I have had several relationships -- some good and some not so good. Some of whom became great friends. While gaining new friends is always a bonus, finding someone special to "share it all" with is what I would prefer. I can't figure out if it's a negative or a positive, but the older I get, the more I know what I want and need in that person. I would not call it being "picky," but rather knowing MYSELF. I am looking for someone who knows what they want in life, someone who has goals and isn't afraid to do what it takes to get there. I am looking for someone that treats others with respect and courtesy. I do not tolerate rudeness, or being ugly to anyone in my presence. If you are rude to the waitress?.I will leave. I would like someone to have a great intellectual conversation with, to go to dinner with or movies or sailing.
I would like to find a man who is honest and sincere. Someone who cares about the other person and not only themselves. I want someone to accept me for who I am and not try to control me as I don't want to control him.
I have met and had the most amazing conversations with men who are charming, and smart, and good looking but when it came right down to it, that attraction factor was just not there.....it has to be there for me. I am attracted to the clean cut, confident, professional man that is comfortable being who he is with that dashing smile.
While I think that what we do for a living is important, to me, it's more about how we live our lives and what we do in our spare time that is the most telling. Money and things are not a measure of WHO we are inside, and it's the "who we are" that really counts.
You must love animals. I have 3 miniature long haired Chihuahuas in my family and they are an important part of my family and always will be.
I have been told that I am easy to talk to, down to earth, really care about people and have a good personality. I love to laugh and want someone to laugh with. I am divorced with 2 grown daughters and work as a nurse. I moved to this beautiful area from Bristol VA/TN area 2 years ago. At this moment....I am looking for friendship and see where it goes. I do eventually want a relationship, but it all starts with friendship. Then there is the attraction?.then chemistry?then deciding if you BOTH feel it, which is usually the problem.
Please don't respond if you don't have a photo. It's not fair that you can see me and I can't see you.
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile and view my pictures. Hope to hear from you.
