65, Crowley, TX
I grew up in a family of nine children, second oldest. I am blessed with 7 wonderful children who mean the world to me. I was educated in Catholic schools in Houston until my high school junior/senior year. My character is steeped in the Catholic faith, though I have been neglectful in attendance. I would love to find a woman whose values are in sync with the tenets of Catholicism. I was the first in my family to divorce; the only one twice. I can't help but feel that a lack of shared faith was a contributing (not sole) factor to the end of both marriages, though I wouldn't trade the offspring created for anything in the world.
I am usually outgoing, enjoy living and experiencing this God-given life to the fullest measure. I love the outdoors for all the activities it affords like hiking, biking and water activities (both lake and ocean). Like to laugh--a lot! Humor is paramount to salve the sad times in all our lives. I realize drama and sadness are a part of life, but I don't believe in perpetuating either. I enjoy dancing and love to sing karaoke. I like all kinds of music, except rap and heavy metal; mostly country rock, 70-80's, but new music is fun too. There are other times I prefer the serenity of a beautiful symphonic orchestra, ballet (Not very big on opera.) Like all sports, follow Rangers, Cowboys and Mavs, but prefer participatory sports (e.g., golf and bowling). I have never snow skied but it's on the bucket list. I don't need to glue myself to the tv to follow my favorites. I have a slender athletic build, and prefer the same, but like smart funny women who are quick to laugh and quicker to smile. Some women wear extra weight well, others not so much. Personality is much more important.
I'm honest and kind. I love people of all types. My kids say I'm a romantic, but what do they know, hahaha! Just like a special relationship with someone who appreciates the little experiences as well as the high times out and about. Looking for someone smart, funny and can carry on a decent conversation, one who loves to hold hands, share tender embraces, and enjoys cuddling and intimate moments. Oh, and country western dancing is a lot of fun. Hope she would like it too. I think family is important, both hers and mine.
I love to golf when I can. Bowling is fun. Movies, dinner (out or home). I can cook some, haha. Intimate evenings are awesome alone. And lastly, I really enjoy travelling. I've been a lot of places, but much more to see and do.
