I'm full of contradictions: Independent, but don't like the sound of silence (unless it's sung by "Disturbed"..awesome!) Won't discuss sports, theology or politics because someone always gets offended. Can't carry a tune in a bucket, but will proudly belt out the Star Spangled Banner. Have power tools, Youtube taught me what to do with them. I don't do windows...No, really, I haven't found someone who'll teach me how to remove the old and install new ones. I prefer not to do plumbing and electrical. I enjoy contemporary Country music as much as classic rock, traditional opera, rock opera, and letting my hair down at a cabaret or bawdy drag show. I'm not perfect, but strive to be the best I can and don't hold others to standards I can't meet. It's the nature of the beast to be prejudiced; I CHOOSE not to be a bigot. I'm 63 y/o but 30-something in my heart. It's fun to be intimate, but it's not the entirety of a relationship. I'm OK with "that" if you're in "that" category. I'm comfortable in blue jeans and a T-shirt as well as a dress. Once a stubborn young woman competing ruthlessly in a man's job market, I have learned not everything is black and white. Life is too short to be rigid; somewhere in the middle, there are shades of grey. I laugh at my own mistakes and learn from them. LOL! You don't have to worry about being in the public and I suddenly dance on a table. I'm sure I haven't covered everything, let's leave SOMETHING to talk about, compare and see if we are compatible. I don't have any "private" pics (please don't ask) and I won't respond to canned, cut and pasted, automated or monosyllable messages and happy faces. I will reply to thought out personal messages.
