Hi There. . . No pic for 2 reason's.
# 1: My computer skills have improved a lot!!! Yet I still have trouble posting pictures. The last time I tried was a frustrating failure. Thank you for your patience while I work this out. # 2: Ok gentlemen, even if I could post a pic, I'm not altogether sure I would. I totally understand that a man wants to "see what he's getting". I can't say that I want to end up with an "ugly" partner either. At the same time you can't judge a book by it's cover! Please do us both the courtesy of getting to know what's inside each of our books before judging the cover! And No, I'm not a fat woman, and No, I'm not ugly.
Please Continue Reading. . . I'm a "real", "down to earth", & "common sense" type of person who endeavors to have a positive attitude most of the time. I'm not a gossip & I rather hate the practice. I need the same in a partner. Negativity only breeds more of the same, & the result is lots of unhappiness!
I'm 5'3" tall and about a size 10/12. I know that may mean nothing to you, but if you know someone who's about that size then it will give you an idea of my physical size. Some people consider me pretty "churchy". Then again some of my oldest & dearest friends have very different beliefs from me, yet we have gotten along wonderfully for years.
I am neither a "closed minded, holier than thou" Christian, nor am I so "heavenly minded, I'm no earthly good". But I am also not so open minded that my brains fall out. I have, & endeavor to maintain, a relationship with God / Jesus Christ. My faith is Apostolic in doctrine. I believe in the power of faith, the power of prayer, the importance & benefit of applying the Word of God in my life as much as I can. The Bible has some pretty smart things in it!
I love to laugh. I have a great sense of humor, a great smile, & a quick wit. Some things I do enjoy are:
Anointed preaching! The outdoors (weather permitting) Food that is well prepared Good conversation Walks, especially in the mtns, woods etc. An occasional home, or quilt show Yard & estate sales (sometimes), and Antiquing (sometimes). I appreciate the good feeling that comes with having order in my life in areas such as housekeeping, finance, menu planning, & staying within my budget. Which is becoming increasingly difficult with the recent surge in gas & food costs!
Keeping current in all these areas along with being mom, running a relatively new business, & doing it all "right", is an eternal challenge. Due to this challenge, I don't usually feel good about all the above listed aspects of my life at any one time. But it's still a great feeling when several of them come together at the same time.
I really enjoy a pretty yard, and flowers. I have just one serious issue pertaining to accomplishing this in my own yard. Well, I'll put it this way? I have a long time friend who has a stunning yard. She has implied that not only do plants run from me in terror when they see me coming, but that probably, even silk plants would do the same. Yes, I know, it's humorous, but it's also sad.
So far children and pets have done pretty well in my care, but I can't say the same for plants.
I love puns, and plays on words. I'm definitely not a bookworm, but I enjoy books & magazines in areas of my interest. I like vocabulary and, verbal banter, & enjoy engaging in occasional dictionary wars.
I also like to travel & see new places, especially with good company. I have VERY little use for regular TV, but do enjoy G, PG, and PG-13 DVD's. I don't do R or X rated anything, & many times even find some PG-13 DVD's distasteful. I'm definitely not a prude, I just don't like putting garbage in my brain!
I've been single since 1998. Since that time, in order to have as great a future as possible, I've worked hard to deal with any physical &/or emotional baggage in my life from the past or present. I desire a partner who cares enough about himself and his future to have done/ or be "actively" doing the same.
I'm a pretty straight forward person. I get along best with people who are good at verbal communication, don't take life, or themselves too seriously, have a good sense of humor, love to laugh (even at themselves), and are NOT NEEDY. It is my opinion that if a man is searching for a woman to "make him better" or somehow magically "heal him" of all his past pain, and is unwilling to dig in and do what it takes to get over the pains of his past, HIMSELF, then I have neither the time nor the energy for the job.
I don't play games, and I don't read minds. I have no addictions (drugs, alcohol, porn, etc) and will not be with someone who does.
I am willing to relocate for the right person. Is that person you?
