Mary Gundrum liked to be in the driver's seat...
I am a Black American Woman, 43 yrs old, 5'8" tall, 175 lbs. I am kind, patient, smart, single, have a great sense of humor, and enjoy: museums, antiqueing, going down the shore, walking, gardening, swimming, skiing, shopping, plus the usual stuff that everyone likes such as; movies, theater, dining out etc.
I grew up in New Jersey and moved to Georgia in June 2007 to assist my mom in caring for my 81 year old dad who has Parkinson's Disease. Mom was diagnosed as having dementia & Paget's Disease soon after I came down here so now I am caregiver to both.
Though I usually date white men, I'm open to dating other nationalities as well, so long as he's a nice person. Contrary to popular belief my preference for white men isn't based on some bizarre sense of self hate. The truth is I grew up in a white neighborhood so it's just what I'm used to.
I abhor hip-hop, rap, techno-house and most of the stuff of that genre which followed it. I sometimes enjoy listening to the blues; but I hate jazz. That's right I said it loud and proud. I am a black woman who hates jazz music. It always sounds like a bunch of discordant noise to me.That said, I genuinely love classic rock! Give me The Doors, The Eagles, CCR, Rod Stewart, The Rolling Stones and I am happy as a clam. I have seen Bruce Springsteen in concert 6 times and Bon Jovi only twice thus far.
For once, I want to be one mans everything.

Interest and hobbies:
Swimming, gardening, shopping, walking, skiing, antique shopping, I'm a family person and I like spending time with my 10 year old cousin who has Asperger's.
I would like to meet:
I want to get married and have children. I do not believe in open relationships. I feel that polyamory is just an excuse to cheat. If you can't be faithful then don't get married; and don't drag me into your matrimonial mess. I am far too selfish to be a mistress and share my man.
