In A Nutshell
I am a 58 year old retired teacher of 23 years, once-divorced mother of two grown boys. I've been single for a long time and have recently decided I'd like to find some companionship to have fun in my upcoming years. I've lived in St. Louis most of my life - my family is here, whom I am very close with. My youngest son (in his late-twenties) is married (to a woman, lol) and they're talking about grandkids. My oldest son (in his early-thirties) is gay and although recently single... is ironically talking about grandkids. So lots of exciting changes in the near future :)
I'm born and raised Catholic, and although I'm pretty liberal in my acceptance and love of everyone, go to church fairly regularly - good people, good atmosphere. I keep a small number of close friends rather than a lot of casual ones. I like watching live music with a glass (or maybe a bottle to share?) of wine, walking in nature, reading and discussing books and traveling.
I think that anything can start with a hello and a friendship... so if any of the above is of interest, please don't hesitate to say hi :)
At the end of the day, I'd like to find someone I can enjoy the rest of my years with, but in the mean time, let's go do something fun!
The One I Am Looking For
I'm looking for a guy who's honest and sincere, treats me with respect, and can make me laugh. Good looks aren't everything (but they certainly don't hurt!) - I'm more interested in character than I am in physique. I'd like to find someone I can go do things with - walking, dancing, concerts, traveling, whatever. I love dogs, allergic to cats, so hope that's compatible.
I'd Just Like to Add
So I'll admit, I'm not super familiar with these dating sites; and haven't dated much in a while. After a bit of pushing from my sons (lol) I'm putting myself back out there. Lets talk a bit, see if we like each other, and see where things go :)
