5'9" genuine and adventurous redhead with a sense of humor! I am a laid back woman who knows that happiness comes from within not from possessions. I am looking for a LOCAL (less than 30 mins drive), tall (5'11"+) single white male (SORRY BUT I AM NOT ATTRACTED TO OTHER RACES), 52-59 yrs old, with a sense of humor, integrity, and no aversion to affection (Note: I am not really into politics but if you are a Trump supporter then we will not get along). Other than that .... no rules apply.. I don’t mind if you have kids and I totally understand the trials and tribulations of trying to date as a parent.
Likes: flat water kayaking (or anything on or near the water!), biking (C&O Canal or BWI Trail?), reading (James Patterson, Sue Grafton, Dean Koontz, Mary Higgins Clark, Faye Kellerman), travelling (prefer the beach to the snow, but you might twist my arm once in a while to hit the slopes), and a whole bunch of other stuff, and willing to try pretty much anything at least once!
I rarely drink (I am usually the designated driver), I don’t smoke (I don’t mind dating a smoker as long as he does not smoke in the house or in the car). No kids (I was a nanny for 13 years though and understand kids pretty well) and currently no pets (dog-lover but I don’t have the time, horse lover too but I don’t have the money!).
Are you up for a game of pool? - and don't even think about throw the game thinking it will get you brownie points because you would be wrong! How about a movie? Not really into old movies or foreign flicks but pretty much anything else would be good, especially a good action flick, and yes, occasionally I will try to drag you to a chick flick! (bonus points if you go with me and double bonus points if you actually stay awake through it!)
I am trying to be healthy and love going for a good walk or a bike ride, and trying to get back into going to the gym (I would love a work-out buddy!) but I am still a work in progress! I love to travel, especially the Caribbean in winter, and I do have dreams to relocate somewhere warmer when I retire, but sadly that's another 12 years away yet! (Yes, I am counting the days!)
Oh yeah... I am a Redskins fan - not a rabid fan and I am willing to tolerate other teams... except maybe Dallas! (Just joking - I think!) :) Go Skins! I have never been interested in soccer but I did go see Man. U. Vs. Barcelona a couple of years ago in DC (bought the scarf too!), between that, and not liking beer (I will partake of a Blue Moon once in a …. yeah yeah), I am not sure people believe me that I am really a Brit! I have been here 27 years but still have a strong accent…. Think Jane Leeves accent in ‘Frazier’, but even stronger!
Take a chance - what do you have to lose? - At least we will have a laugh and at most - who knows? If you want to know more, please ask away!
