Finally, my kids are grown and close to independent, so now I can focus on my life and my fun. I am a positive, secure, professional woman who loves to dance and laugh. I am an avid reader of mysteries and also enjoy reading about English royalty, especially Henry VIII and his era. I have a big, slobbery bull mastiff that I adore, but that is not a quality I am looking for in a man. I work with children and love my work. I have loads of patience with them, but not too much with adults who aren't smart. I admire intelligence, more so regarding life skills than book smart. I dislike when people speak from ignorance instead of experience.I am seeking an honest, sincere, fun loving man who wants the same in a woman. So, don't make me kiss a lot of frogs......Where are you Prince Charming???
