I am a woman who truly enjoys life. I wake up happy every day! REALLY! I have a decent sense of humor, am compassionate, romantic, sociable, and independent. I am honest and have integrity and would prefer the same in my friends and those I date. I have a great family and wonderful old and new friends. I have eclectic taste in music and am diversified with regard to interests, which include movies, theater, opera, the ballet, traveling, visiting wineries, watching NFL football, creative writing, walking, dancing and listening to music. I like to relax after lighting a fire in the fireplace in the winter, enjoy rainy days and seeing the leaves turn in the fall, the flowers blooming in the spring and hearing the waves hit the shore in the summer. Call me a hopeless romantic, but I call it a hopeful romantic. I enjoy the simple things in life, along with the finer. I am considered by most as being an excellent cook.
I like new experiences without compromising tradition. Chivalry is still something I believe in, even though I am independent. I am a non-smoker and non-drug user. I enjoy glass of good wine, especially with a nice guy to join me.
My bucket list consists of completing the book I am writing, painting on canvass out in the country, taking a trip to Tuscany, Italy and meeting someone who completes me.
I don't have a particular criteria as to what I am looking for in a man except that he be unattached and that he can step into my world as written in my profile. If he can step into mine, then I am sure I can step into his.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
My idea of a great first date would be either to visit a winery, or have dinner, followed by a walk hand in hand by a body of water. Just a thought. Of course, my date may have a better suggestion. Good conversation and a positive attitude can only help create a pleasant atmosphere.
