― Johnny Cash
I am ready to turn the page and start the next chapter of the book. :-) I am not looking for love. I am looking for happiness because love is sure to follow. LOL
I AM ENOUGH.
I am full of sparkle & compassion.
I genuinely want to make the world a better place.
I love hard.
I practice kindness.
I’m not afraid of the truth.
I am loyal and adventurous,
Supportive, and surprising.
I am a woman.
I am enough.
I make mistakes, but I own them.
And learn from them.
Sometimes I make a lot of mistakes.
I am a one man woman who is stable, independent, & emotionally secure. I am not a serial dater, jumping from one man to the next. I have no time for head games.. All baggage is safely stowed away. I am a glass half full type, and try to see the best in people, and look for the silver lining in situations.
I am open- minded and non- judgmental. I have been living alone for twenty years. So I don’t NEED to be with a partner, or to be taken care of. Rather, I want to find my one forever love to share the rest of our lives together.
About the one I'm looking for...
Since I did not make very good decisions in the past, I have decided to let go & let God guide me along my future path. He will lead to the ONE VERY SPECIAL GENTLEMAN that He has chosen for me. This will be someone who will take the time to become friends first as we peel back the layers of our onions, and make our life long connection.
It is not so much the activity we are involved in, but that we are laughing and enjoying being with each other. LOL. In the end, we will remember how we felt rather than what we did. Unless we did something really wild and crazy!! Whoo Hooo LOL
I believe that the small things in life are what are most important. Things like sharing a beautiful sunset, an inside joke shared by just the two of us, catching a kiss as we walk the boardwalk, cuddling by the fire during a snow storm, cooking a meal together on the grill on the back deck.
But above all, seeing the smile and twinkle in in my partner's eyes ., and knowing that he loves me because he doesn't just tell me, but he shows me (extremely important :-)), and I reciprocate :-). Actions speak much louder than words. :-)
I'd just like to add...
I enjoy antique shops, walking on the boardwalk, museums, zoos, parks, restaurants, traveling, weekend getaways, etc. I am also open to new experiences. LOL
I believe in treating others as I would like to be treated. I value the six main building blocks necessary to maintain a relationship...trust, honesty, monogamy, integrity, respect, and communication.
I would prefer a casual, laid back "first meeting" over coffee or lunch, where we can chat and get to know each other.
I would like our actual "first date" to be much more special....maybe a quiet corner table in a nice restaurant where we can pick up where we left off during our "first meeting".
I PREFER TO MEET SOMEONE WHO LIVES NO MORE THAN 35 MILES FROM ME
