I am ready to start a new book of life. But I need a co-author...maybe you??? :-)
I am a one man woman who is stable, independent, & emotionally secure. 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; rather, I WANT to find my one forever love to share the rest of our lives together and write that final book of life.
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 enjoy antique shops, walking on the boardwalk, museums, zoos, parks, restaurants, traveling, weekend getaways, etc. I am also open to new experiences. LOL
I am retired and I take each day as it unfolds. I take time to enjoy life & smell the roses, stroll along a wooded trail or the boardwalk, gardening in my yard, home improvement & maintenance projects, the sights, sounds, and aromas of nature while sipping a beverage on the back deck, meals from the grill on the deck, a beautiful sunset, or whatever adventure we may dream up.....
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.
About the one I'm looking for...
I am in search of ONE VERY SPECIAL GENTLEMAN 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 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.
No head games, please. Also, If you are married, or in any type of committed relationship, please pass me by and don't waste my time or yours.
I will only respond if you have pictures posted.
