I'm a warm and loving person but that means I also feel things deeply, so if you want your life to be placid with no ups and downs then I am not for you. However, I'm not moody and I'm generally upbeat and cheerful. I think I'm pretty easy to get along with but if I'm unhappy about something I try to be direct and just say how I feel, and not avoid the subject for the sake of keeping the peace. I am independent and can be strong-willed.
I have two grown children who are independent and wonderful people. I am financially secure and don't need someone to take care of me. I love to laugh, socialize, eat great food, travel and see new places, play and listen to music.
It goes without saying that you must be kind, caring, and affectionate. I want someone who can really communicate, is not afraid of emotions, and is willing to work through problems in the relationship through honest discussion. You must like people and not just want to sit in front of a TV every evening.
I am looking for a life-long relationship, perhaps marriage again, but I'm realistic enough to know there are no guarantees.
