ABOUT HER & WHO SHE'S LOOKING FOR

Try to be as positive as I can, to be nice and good to people. I'm a planner and a list-maker, organize things and do research for fun. I'm a Republican, have a MBA in Accounting, am a member of MENSA...so in a nutshell, am a bit of a handful. I'm strong-willed but open-minded. Am pretty serious a lot of the time, but sometimes giggly and fun-loving. I'm a bit of a "square", have kind of a geeky sense of humor (What do you call a guy with no arms and no legs on your front porch?...in your mailbox?...hanging on the wall?...in the ocean?). 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 love dancing. Took gymnastics, modern jazz, and ballroom dance classes so really like it a lot. Also played instruments and used to sing, published poetry when I was younger 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. Enjoy an afternoon playing tennis (I'm really bad at it, prepare to chase a lot of balls), playing golf (hopelessly bad at that too so I cheat). I used to be exceptionally coordinated and athletic but something weird happened around the age of 35. Now I trip over things and fall UP the stairs. :-)

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 I would like to meet... *Someone laid-back, easy-going, and calming. *Someone intelligent and self-motivated. *Someone that is sensitive and knows when to just listen and be supportive but challenges themself and me. *Is willing to give as much as they are willing to take. *Is open and knows how to be honest. *Actually knows who they are and is self-aware. *Knows how to be serious but has a sense of humor. *Has the mannerisms and ability (when they need to) to have a conversation with anyone and knows how to conduct themself in different situations. Can be charming if they have to be. * Knows when to wear a nice shirt rather than a hoodie. Hoodies are fine, but not all the time. *Someone that knows life is a journey and isn't stuck in the past. *Someone that can appreciate an opera or a musical (or will at least fake it and go with me) as well as a pizza and XBox Knect Star Wars. *Someone that is sensitive, appreciates and respects women, but knows how to actually be a man. *Someone with passion...for life, for love, and the things they believe in, even if I don't agree. *Someone that doesn't care if they get cut off in traffic. *Someone that will help an old lady with her groceries. *Someone that uses the manners their mama taught them. AND IN ALL HONESTY, *Someone that makes me feel alive again. *Someone that reminds me that the degrees and atta girls aren't what really matters. *Someone that will take me on a picnic and for a ride in a canoe. *Someone that calms my head and slows me down. *Someone that makes me feel like a woman and treats me like one. *Someone that doesn't want anything from me but who I am...and is willing to figure out what that is.

I don't like the company of people who have big egos and see themselves as better than others. But humble confidence is extremely attractive. Not at all interested in the partiers or players. Not looking to get married tomorrow either. But do have a desire for a committed and exclusive relationship. Eventually maybe there will be someone I like being with more than anyone else, and if I'm lucky they feel the same way.
