In Her Own Words

About Her

Looks may attract a man initially, but what will keep him there? Not looks. Look beyond. Look deeper. Look without your eyes. I prefer people who are not superficial. If Looks are your primary concern, we are not a match. I am not ugly, nor am I looking for ugly, but I have been with gorgeous and found that after a while, it is truly about the person inside and looks become irrelevant.

I am usually fairly tame but I have times when I want to go dancing and be social. I love to read and would spend all day reading (and often do!). I need an intellectual/mental connection as well as a physical one please.

I have been single a very long time and have a strong sense of independence and individuality. BUT. I want to share my life with a partner, not be anyone's property or mother stand-in. Nor do I want to be a convenience or part-time distraction.

I want to meet friends first and see if it turns into more. If it doesn't, that's also good - social friendships and companionship would be great if you are mature enough to handle it. I do sound rather droll but get to know me to find out I'm not one dimensional. I just don't spout the usual "fun loving and sense of humour" tripe.

I am in decent health and expect the same of you. No fanatics please - "normal" healthy, not if your diet begins with someone else's name.

Still busy raising my teens, so do not want to have more children but I am nice to yours.

I may be strong and dominant but secretly I just want you to throw me over your shoulder, dump me on the bed, aaand go do the dishes while I read. If you find that funny, then please say hi!

I am not here to be anyone's fringe benefit, FWB, or booty call.

Ladies: at this age, all our friends are married. If you would like a friend, I'm amenable to chats and socializing. This online dating stuff is haaard!

About Her Ideal Match

NO MARRIED MEN. "Separated" is not divorced. NO NSA or FWB seekers.

Love / a good match can't be prescribed... but we all do have some preferences:
What I Seek: I need a man with authentic inner strength. I am a strong woman.
Indian or White
Mature
Honest. Have Integrity.
Intelligent (not necessarily degreed, but with connected brain cells)
Gentleman.
You must have grown up and not be looking for the club/drinking/party scene every weekend.
Embrace your age rather than seek eternal youth (grown beyond the mid-life crisis). Age with Grace. Be Content but not lazy. Stable- mentally, emotionally, financially.

I'd love to go dancing, but not necessarily clubbing. I want to learn ballroom dancing, so if that appeals, let's talk.

Just a small thing: I prefer clean shaven faces. Honestly, I have never dated a man with facial hair, I find them attractive, but hard to kiss.

Please be content with the normalcy of life and not be looking to jump out of planes etc. Weekend warrior types will find me boring.

I prefer silence to noise, and would rather not speak at all than participate in inane prattle.

I believe that relationships take work and that they fail only when you take your partner for granted and neglect the relationship. Partners should be priorities, not conveniences, but at the same time, you should have a life of balance where they are not the only thing you have in your life.

While I dont expect to spend every minute of every day with you, I have been a golf-widow and have no interest in a repeat performance in that respect for any sport. You need your time for sure, so do I, but if you play all weekend, where do I fit in? Same applies to soccer/etc/sports channel. I dont get excited about men chasing their balls :P

Oh! Must cook and do laundry :P

Please talk to me and get to know me, it's so difficult to say things concisely in this way, and I've already written too much for most of you to read.
