Well, it is difficult to know where to start. It is important to know that my family is an important part of my life. I love animals and I spend a lot of my free time with my dogs and my daughter, hiking along the river or up in the hills. I am looking for a long term relationship with a man who values family, honesty, enjoys long talks about important life issues including what happened on ER on thursday night. I enjoy cuddle times and PDA (public displays of affection). A sense of humor is important or my sarcasm will drive you crazy. I believe a great relationship doesn't mean that you complete one another or you lose yourself but that it brings out the best parts of the individuals involved and makes you a better person. I am not the most mature 47 year old and I consider that an asset. I have a tendency to be very silly and at the most inappropriate times. My life is very busy and full but I will always make the room for a great relationship.
