I am a happy person with a lot on her plate who'd love to have someone to talk it all over with at the end of the day. I miss going out for dinner, laughing, and sharing about everything that's going on with someone who can both talk and listen. I've been divorced seven years and have a 21-year-old son at school in the Pacific Northwest. I live with my 15-yr-old daughter whose growing social life has reminded me that I need one!I'm a giving and self confident woman and I'm definitely interested in a loving, good-giving-and-game intimate relationship. But becoming friends who enjoy eachother's company is where I'd like to start.I like to camp, hike and horseback ride. I like walking my town, seeing art films and lingering a long time in a cafe reading the Sunday papers. One of my favorite places in the southwest is Canyon de Chelly.I'm not someone who likes to shop. I'm politically liberal. I have a dry sense of humor and I'm trying to simplify, get rid of stuff, live more lightly. I make a killer martini (stirred, not shaken). I speak Spanish and like to travel off the beaten track in Mexico. I'm sad about what's happening in that country these days. I work out at the gym 2-3 times a week and try to take my dogs for walks on the days in between. It's important to me to be outdoors part of every day just to keep my bearings.
