The one thing I am passionate about...
Actually, I enjoy working out at least three times per week. I am overly concerned about keeping in good shape; I find that this is important to me both physically and emotionally. Right now I have no problem with finding the time to do this. Once I become involved in a serious relationship, this will continue to be one thing that I have to have the time to continue to be able to do and I would expect my partner to understand that this time is very important to me. Any stress I might build up during my normal work day can be totally relieved by a good workout.
I typically spend my leisure time
I enjoy long walks. I casually enjoy biking and bowling. In the fall I enjoy going to country fairs. I like to get together with a group of friends for appetizers and cocktails. I'm open to experiencing new activities.
The most influential person in my life has been
A morally strong, compassionate gentleman; a great guy who enjoys treating a woman like a lady (opening doors, etc.). I'm looking for a friend first, with the hope of it leading to a long-term relationship.
The first thing people notice about me
My positive attitude. I always find something nice to say about everybody whether they are or are not nice. If a situation is bad, I will find a little something positive with it. This always amazes my friends as to how I can always find some good even in negative people or situations.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I'm currently reading Message in a Bottle by Nicholas Sparks. I decided to read the book, after watching the movie, several times. It is a romance novel about a divorced woman who no longer believed in love, and a widower who thought he could never love again....until they found one another. It ends as a heartbreaking love story that will bring tears to your eyes.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My daughter, as she is the "light of my life". She has helped me through some tough times.
- My health, because I am emotionally as well as physically healthy.
- My employment, because I really enjoy my job as well as the people I work with.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
My personality, because I am a shy person and it takes me time to warm up and trust others. Once I get thru this stage the real me shines thru. Unfortunately, sometimes people think that I am a snob because of the shyness and I am far from that.
Friends Describe me as
Affectionate, Caring, Happy, Loyal
A little more about me
I'm an easy going, average person with a very positive outlook on life. I am healthy both emotionally and physically. I don't look my age and sometimes don't act it. I am a one man type of woman and not interested in wasting time with players. I value friendship, faithfullness, mutual respect and support for one another.
