I am 53 and have been divorced for 8 years, after being married for 20 years. I had rectal cancer 9 yrs ago and have a colostomy. I have just started back into the dating is very different then it was in my 20's!! :)

I am passionate about kids and believe it truely DOES take a viliage to raise a child. I'm proud that I sometimes go to bed exhausted after a long day playing/ teaching with them. (I work in an infant/toddler daycare center).
I was raised on a hobby farm and love horses. I am a country girl who loves to fish, (yes, I bait my own hook) camp, swim and kayak. I love to be on, in or near a lake!
I recently bought a four wheeler and I am having fun exploring the trails around my area.

Overboard is my favorite movie, I like romantic comedies as well as action movies....I don't like horror. I love 50's Doo Wop, 80's, Country, Elvis, Prince, Pink and most anything that is on the radio. I love pepperoni pizza and of course...chocolate! As far as books....I loved The a Clan of The Cave Bear series....haven't had time to read much lately but, I do love to read. I finally binge watched Greys Anatomy and Criminal Minds is a favorite too.
The six things I could never do without:


The man I am looking for must love children and animals. He must be patient, gentle and kind. He doesn't believe in swearing in front of women or children. (that's how my Dad raised me)
He must be open and honest with his feelings and be a good communicater.
