Oh I've Gone And Done It Now!!

A few years back a friend of mine told me I should sign up for Plenty Of Fish, an online dating website, so I could see some guy that had contacted her. I made a profile but never really did anything with it. I did try Yahoo Dating and met someone there, that didn't work out in the long run, so I am familiar with such things. Well last night in my boredom I went into POF and updated my profile, made it searchable and just wondered what I might end up catching *okie crosses fingers it's not a disease*.

It's odd trying to write a profile that might be appealing and get someone to pay attention. What do you really write about yourself? Well I came up with some things and then I decided I should write a disclaimer about my website here and how I do post stuff about my life. Well long story short here is what is in my profile.

About Me

I am single and never married, one child who is grown and not living with me. I do have my dog Lucy that lives with me, but she thinks I live with her. I have a professional career that will never make me rich but fulfills my life so much more than money ever could. I honestly don't know how my friends would describe me because I never ask them to do such a thing. I am a happy person who loves to smile and laugh and I deal with most issues with a touch of humor. I prefer to look on the brighter side of situations. I am at a good point in my life where I am wanting someone (ie, possible relationship) who can be my companion, partner and most importantly FRIEND. I honestly do believe you have to be friends in order to have a successful friendship.

Now to address some of the generic topics that seem to be always included on this site -

Music: What's playing on the radio at the time.

Hobbies: I have had numerous hobbies in my life, everything from gardening, crocehting, fishing, woodworking, painting, camping and papercrafting. The latter being my focus now and I have been able to come in contact with people all over the world through my hobby.

Aspirations: Some goals are not attainable and we should let go of them. I have started being honest with myself and realize I will never marry Sean Connery or Denzel Washington. So for now my goal is to just enjoy the life I have and the people around me. When I get to retire I want to go on an Alaskan cruise, camp at Yellowstone for a month, travel across country in an RV, go on an archaeological dig, learn to make furniture...and many more things.

Type of person I would like to meet...
One who can tell the truth, hasn't been to prison, doesn't do drugs, doesn't think it is rude for a woman to burp out loud (in private company of course). Umm...showers or bathes at least once a day, has his own vehicle, doesn't live with is parents, isn't a con artist, understands that guy time and girl time is a must (him with the guys and me with the girls), isn't afraid of an independent woman, likes a woman who is half Arapaho and half French and knows the art of being a woman is when to act like a lady and when not too. (Am I being too picky yet?) Oh what else can I think of? Let's see...knows friendship is important in life, knows family is important in life, knows that I am truly a Goddess (okay I think I just hurt myself from laughing on that one).

Random information about me:

I do have a relationship with God but I don't go to church. A lady came to my door one day asked me once how often I prayed and my response to her was "My relationship with God is more faithful, binding and scared than your marriage or any marriage could ever be. I don't ask you how often you have sex with your husband so don't ask me how often I pray". I am a very spiritual person and my relationship with God is important to me.

I don't go to bars as I did that years ago. I do like to have a drink every now and then, either one or two while out to eat or having drinks at home. One of my favorite things to do is have the little patio fireplace going and sit out there while having a couple of drinks. I should say now that I can't drink wine. Well I can drink it, I just shouldn't.....don't ask....ever....

A man being a sports nut, hunter, biker (riding clubs not like gangs) etc will not bother me. Hobbies are an essential part of being able to be happy and I have been know to enjoy a game or two, use to go riding with my cousins when I was younger...and I do want to get my concealed weapons license so I am not anti-gun or anti-hunting, especially if you are gonna bring me some deer sausage or jerky.

Vegetarians scare the bee geebies out of me...there is just something wrong with folks that cannot enjoy a nice big hunk of meat, preferably beef and preferably medium rare.

I have not and will not read 50 Shades of Grey. So don't worry I am not looking for what most women are dreaming of right now...that Christian Grey guy from those books.

I am a blogger and while my website is suppose to be crafting I do post stuff that is going on in my life. If you are against being written about it is probably important you do not contact me and sure don't go on a date with me. And here are the terms...

You have the right to remain silent.
Anything you say or do can and will be held against you, or for you, on my website.
Do you understand these rights you have just read?

Names will be changed to protect the innocent...or guilty, whichever the case may be.
So either some brave soul might contact me or men will be too chicken to send me a message! LOL I figured I should be honest though and let them know they could be written about, and I honestly would change their names and such, just because it is the right thing to do.

  10. Hi Okie!
    Thanks for helping me getting my tired rear out of bed this morning. It is my girls 1st day of school and my youngest is going into kinder. So thanks for putting a smile on my face.

    Wanted to mention...My mother in law...divorced my DH day when he was six. That was almost 35 yrs ago and has been single ever since. She had been on a few dating sites w/ no success. She signed up w/ POF and she met a GREAT GUY (a little bit older) and we love him. They are getting married on SEPT 15th!!! We are SUPER happy for them and wish you great luck as well!

  11. You sure do know how to make people smile. Love it! Anxious to hear about the responses.

  12. Girl...I met my husband online through we've been together for ten years. That was the best decision my friend made for me. I'm so glad I did it. Don't get me wrong, I did have to kiss a few frogs to get to the Prince, but the kissing booth was well worth it. Good luck!


  13. Great description. Put it out there and let the brave respond. They will be truly blessed to have done so.

  14. You crack me up as usual. Great way to start my Monday morning :) What ever happened to the guy from a few months back that you were going to marry for a sexy hot red dress???

  15. PERFECT!!!! I so wish you luck 'cause any man who becomes your friend will be ever so lucky!!!


  16. This is hilarious and I think there are men out there that would enjoy you. Good luck.

  17. Oh WOW! That was a brave thing to do ... and YES, being honest is the best thing ... anything less will turn around and bite you in the tushie!

    Ohhhh, did I ever mention that I met my DH online? Not through a dating site though, as we actually met in an online chat room ... it was 3.5 years before we ever met in person. That might be a bit longer that you want to wait ... but I was such a chicken! Our relationship continued online for over 6 years before we decided to join our lives together. Then lived together for a year before we were married.

    He is truly my Best Friend and our life together is a good one. On November 9th, we will celebrate our 10-year wedding anniversary.

    Good Luck Shirley ... I do wish you wonderful success in finding someone special in your life (you deserve it) ... and I also wish you much fun in the process. =)


  18. That synopsis is beyond amazing, girl!!! You will have them lined up around the block!!!! :-)
