I was raised in North Carolina but have lived in South Florida most of my adult life. I worked at a legal assistant/paralegal for twenty-five years, intermittently owning my own business or working in my family's business. I am now semi-retired but also do some estate buying, which I enjoy and is somewhat more of a hobby to me than a job.
I still retain a lot of the traditional Southern values, yet I'm a very independent, self-reliant woman. I don't have to have a man in my life to feel complete but I'm to the point that I would like to share my life with that special someone. I treasure my friends, family and my alone time and I abhor chaos and game playing in relationships. I will quickly move on if I see that insanity developing in any relationship.
I live for each day and gave up worrying and stressing about things beyond my control long ago. I don't do drama! I have an irreverent sense of humor and enjoy a laid back, simple life. I've learned that life is too short to try to live up to others' expectations so I'm not really concerned with other peoples' opinion of me. If you like me, understand me and can relate to me, great! If not, great . . . move on. I don't judge others and I don't acknowledge it when I'm judged. I'm constantly told that I'm not like other women and I believe that's probably because I don't attach emotion to everything that happens in life. It's just life and it's meant to be savored.
NOW . . if you are looking for a soul mate, are tired of wasting time, want a woman who has been there and done that and who is ready to commit to the right man, I'm here, but not for long!
