Here I am in a place I never dreamed of....single and using a online dating site. It just supports my belief in what a interesting journey life can be. I will try to describe myself but the best way to get to know me is to become my friend. Once you are my friend you will see that I am a good listener and have a great sense of humor. I am compassionate and very open minded. I was a social worker and paralegal in the criminal justice system for 30 years so no ex-convicts please...hahaha. Ummm I am serious. I am compassionate to a fault. I am told that I am fun and interesting. I also have a artistic side. I love painting ( watercolor and pastels ) and drawing. I am an optimist and appreciate the small things in life. It does not take much to make me happy. I HATE conflict and want a relationship that fulfills my soul. Sounds like a big order. I am retired and am raising my awesome 17 year old daughter and loving it. There is plenty more I can tell you if your interested ...send a email my way.
