More About MeI am a loving, caring, giving person that always puts other people first. I have been told I need to change that and do things I like to do & I am really trying. I sometimes feel selfish if I do something just for me but I know it's OK. I was a nurse for a long time and maybe that is why I am like I am.rnrnI love my 2 litttle shih-tzu's and they are so much fun. They really seem to undertand me when I talk to them! I just like to simple things in life and although I like to get dressed up and go out occasionally, I am content to cook and stay home also.rnrnWhen my husband died and I took over the real estate it was very hard for me at first to have to be "the bad guy " and evict people and things like that . I am more comfortable with it now, but still don't like some of the things I have to do. I like doing nice things for the tenants and am friends with a lot of them.rnrnMaybe that makes me special--I don't know. My grandchildren think I'm special and thats all that matters to me!
Hobbies / Interests / ActivitiesI love to cook & bake and try new recipes. I have won prizes at the fair for my baking. I like amature photography, working in the yard, taking my grandchildren to educational places that are also fun and watching all their sports games. I like going for long walks and going to the state parks and walking the trails. I also do volunteer work.
Political AffiliationI'm conservaative
Who I Would Like to MeetI would like someone who is kind and gentle and not controlling. I had that (controlling) for a lot of years and it was not healthy. Someone who will actually communicate their needs and feelings because I'm pretty intuitive, but I'm not a mind reader. I am very easy to get along with and will give 100% but I want that in return. My marriage was very lonely, and I want more this time. I'm a romantic at heart and love to be hugged and other physical signs of affection. rnrnIf you are very into something I will support you completely, because people don't have to give up what they love just because they meet someone new. I think it works best when you each have interests and then you are both happier when you're together. rnrnI am very independent and so I don't need someone to call constantly and bother, I am secure in myself and I would want to be in a relationship too.rnrnI would hope my ideal partner would be able to fix a few things and be handy around the house . It''s not a deal breaker but I really like guys who are handy with tools. Cars are great too, but I don't want one that is in the garage 24/7 that I never see.rnrnIt would be nice is you are reasonably good looking but there again, I would rather you had a good heart and were kind and loving. ( Bad hygiene would be a deal breaker)rnrnI'm really not good at doing this so I hope Mr. Right comes along soon. Thanks if you got this far!

Subjects You Think AboutThe future, My children & grandchildren, the economy
Friday or Saturday Nights IIt depends--it could be anything from working on a rental to watching TV to being out with friends.
Life GoalsI would like to find someone compatible to share the best years of my life. I would like to do more traveling as I have time shares I have never used and it is lots more fun with someone. I want to continue to do volunteer work and help people when I can. I am blessed with 9 wonderful grandchildren and I would hope I could find someone who would share in the enjoyment with me. I have a nice home and would like to do a few things to it, but mostly enjoy it. rnrnI guess my ultimate goal would be to find love again, because I have a lot of love to give. The rest is what we would both like to do as I am happy with a home and family.
SecretI have made some choices that I wish I had not made.
