I want you to know immediately that I have some arthritis and an old ankle injury that never healed properly. I no longer hike or power walk and I avoid stairs; I often use a cane. (If this is a deal breaker, please look elsewhere for someone that you feel would be right for you.) Although I completely enjoy ocean swimming and working out at the gym, I am definitely not athletic. I am overweight, and taking positive action to let it go. I am great in and out of bed; I simply can't get on my knees. My physical challenges do not get in the way of me being a successful professional, a nurturing and caring lover, and a highly functional human being with a strong presence.
I am not for everyone and I have been loved and admired by some wonderful men. If we do not have chemistry, strong friendship is also a blessing. I have made some wonderful friends through a couple of the internet dating sites over the years.
I have been blessed to live in Hawaii since December 25, 1980 -- Maui 1980 to 2002. My late husband and I taught a personal growth seminar in the early 80's, before he became ill. My husband died in May of 2001. My manager had relocated to Oahu and invited me to come over. I needed a change and moved to Oahu in October of 2002. I am grateful every day for the opportunity to call Hawaii my home. At the same time, I am willing to consider relocating if that is what unfolds.
I have a compassionate, empathic, sensitive, passionate, and caring nature. I am always moved by a rainbow, a sunset, the full Moon, a misty rain, children's innocent laughter. I am grateful for every good, beautiful, and kind thing that happens on a daily basis.
My friends would say that I am extremely loving, consistent, reliable, devoted, honest to a fault, transparent, and open to sincere feedback that will help me continue to grow and develop. I am a great listener and have the capacity for being deeply present. People often find themselves opening up to me and sharing things they have never or rarely shared with others. People who meet me say they feel at home in my presence and nurtured by my genuine warmth.
I am a naturist and always am au naturel at home unless it is cold. I have had the opportunity and blessing to spend time naked outdoors at nudist camps and the private property of dear friends. I have a great sense of humor and love to laugh. Even though it has not always served me, I usually think with my heart. Life lessons and challenges have taught me to be more cautious than I would like to be.
My life challenges and karma have helped me develop a depth of compassion, understanding, and perspective that allows me to be deeply present with others. I have patience, understanding, and a way of looking at life that is only developed through facing and thriving through the challenges and impermanence of life. I have experienced many personal growth seminars through the years and have strong communication skills, a quality I also value in others. I am more interested in sharing love than being right.
You are a man who has a generous heart, is financially solvent and/or ambitious and focused professionally (or retired), is romantic and old-fashioned mixed in with being flirtatious and naughty, possesses a quick mind, ready laugh, and is open to taking a chance on the possibility of love and magic being in your life. You mean what you say and say what you mean; you follow through on your words and promises with action. You have some type of spiritual foundation and Higher Power in your life. You want to connect based on mutual trust and respect, attraction, and adding positive energy to one another's life. You understand the magic of a kiss well placed. You know what it means to be a true friend and a Tantric lover. (If you have never heard of Tantra, feel free to google it. There is a Universe of Discovery awaiting you.) You are open to experiencing the magic, mystery, and healing of opening to deep union and ecstasy.
Although, as most of us, you have some baggage, your past does not dictate your present. You, like me, have learned from your life lessons and have become a better person as a result. If you are fortunate enough to have children, they would be happy for you to find a beloved in your life.
I think it is important for you to know that I do not like the smell or taste of cologne or strong deodorant. It can actually make me nauseous. I do not use cologne or perfume. There are many natural deodorants on the market that work quite well. Also, I hardly ever wear make-up. I have never enjoyed it, and will consider wearing it for special occasions.. Due to my life long challenges with my feet, I do not wear high heels. These things may seem like not even worth mentioning, and I have known men who were great guys but we were not compatible because of some of these things. I am definitely "Miss Natural." There is nothing better than a person's own natural pheromones after a hot shower.
You can appreciate and value a woman who is a professional, capable, and confident in the world and yearns to be soft, receptive, and sexy in private, with a man she can trust and be herself with. You love to cuddle and linger in bed, before and after sharing sexually. You welcome a woman who is comfortable and open with her sexuality and multi-orgasmic. You are an expert in bed and, even more important, out of it. You appreciate the necessity of keeping romance alive in a relationship and making your woman feel like the Queen of the world (and in return will allow me to make you feel like the King of the world). You have enough self esteem to accept being treated lovingly and consciously, with tenderness, care, and concern. Your only choice in life is to run toward love with open arms and an open heart. You are ready to meet the one you have waited for all of your life.
