I like my rib eye medium rare and do not have a closet full of shoes. I'm blessed with many lifelong friends and two amazing grown children. I have a taste for travel and adventure (not hang gliding) and think it's sometimes more fun to go without 'reservations', letting the wind take you where it may. For me, it isn't the 'where' or 'what' in life, but the 'who' that matters. I work at a job I love, and enjoy puttering in my garden, dancing, laughing, and get crazy at times. I'm a pretty good mah jonng and pool player, and enjoy most board, card, and dice games. I like museums, garage sales, antiquing, theater, music, libraries, and most things normal. I'm not a big drinker but when I do, it's usually tequila. I'm a low maintenance regular girl with an eye for charming, handsome, intelligent men, albeit they are few. Recently a member asked if, as I had indicated on my profile, I was only interested in 'making friends'. I'll share the answer I gave him which should clarify for anyone else wondering. In my opinion, romantic love stems from friendship. What I'm looking for is the right fit, in every way. Intellectually, physically, and emotionally. He's going to have similar values to my own. He'll be a man who has interests, friends, and a full life other than not having met me yet. I won't be his fill in or contingency plan. In other words, I want us to be each other's #1, the woman forever at his side, next to him in photographs, and not just an occasional thrill. Life has taught me that you cannot change anyone and that love is not negotiable. Both parties have to want the same thing at the same time. So yes. I am looking for genuine friendship, one that lasts and grows into the greatest love of my life.
