I am a Southern woman Brooklyn based, full of life. I am intense, articulate, funny, and well rounded. I am shapely, a size 14-16, and love dressing well. I only own two pairs of jeans, one pair of sneakers. My relationship with my lawyer son and Marketing Exec daughter is great, respectful, but not smothering in either direction. I am not interested in casual sex or random dating, but I am interested in chemistry, compatibility and the ability to be myself. The fire that attracts a man to me cannot be the thing that he wants to change, dim or shut down. If he is secure, he will never find another as loyal because he let me be me! I am direct and frank, want to laugh and live well. I am retired as of 9/10/09 and may possibly complete my doctoral thesis. I am grateful and thankful that God has blessed me so and brought me through so many tribulations that could have ended my life....I love worship and enjoy using my gifts to benefit others. It wouldbe very difficult to try to co-exist with a man who does not know God and whose life HE is a part of. I am looking for the last best interactive realtionship available. If you are not serious about finding your last love, don't bother to contact me. IF YOU DO NOT INCLUDE PHOTO, DON'T BOTHER CONTACTING ME; IT ISN'T FAIR.
