Hi. Thanks for viewing my site. I lost my husband of 33 years in January. It was a hard road to travel, but I am ready to laugh again. Yes, if you do the math, that means it has been almost 40 years since I last dated. I may be a bit rusty at this scene, but am ready to take the plunge. I am an eternal optimist and like to enjoy my life. I have a HUGE heart am ready to share my heart again.I love to laugh and look foward to laughing or at least smiling as many times a day as my cheeks will allow. I don't let alot of things get me down. I love my kids and grandbabies immensely. I have 2 grown kids, 2 grands, and am raising my niece and nephew. All of my kids give me amazing fulfillment and spunk to my life. I am very family oriented. I approach every day thinking 'how is this day going to be the best that it can. I am as comfortable relaxing at home with my family, bowling (depending on my strike to gutter ball ratio) dancing (once I have lessons or steel toed shoes for my partner – but willing to try) out to dinner (my only 2 rules - food must be cooked and no eyeballs - I can't eat anything that looks at me) or just going for a walk ( I have mastered the talent of walking and chewing gum at the same time). I have 2 grown kids, one married with 2 of my very cute grands daughter is getting married in June and I am raising my niece and nephew. My grown kids, friends, my mom all have joined together to become my village to raise my niece and nephew. That is wonderful because it give me as much time to go out and be with friends as I want. At my Channukah dinner my kids not only were very supportive in my seeking a new partner, but I became the brunt of the discussion of which dating service I should join. My nephew simply commented “Aunt Mari, I don’t understand…you are like 50?...from the mouth of a 14 year old. It was great fun and I am very proud of all my kids and feel very supported by them in this new adventure in my life.One of my most favorite times is when all my kids and I am together and I get to sit on the floor and play with my grands (age 1 ½ and 3)
I feel blessed to have a solid, happy life. I face all life’s challenges with a glass full attitude and can figure a solution of a plan of action pretty quickly. I am myself very low maintainence, I love to laugh and have fun, cook, movies, dinners out or at home, family movie nights or just the two of us. I am dependable, sincere, very honest. I do not play games. ( I would not be very good at it, so why try...just be honest.) I understand the importance of a give and take in a relationship. Come and lets join our lives.
