I work hard because I have to but enjoy taking time off to enjoy the downtime. I walk every morning giving me time to plan, dream, pray, concentrate on being at peace. I have varied interests but more importantly is the companion I am with than the activity. I get a charge out of spontaneous dates/trips/activities but can plan and enjoy an evening/event that will be memorable.
I am educated, well read, socially acceptable and refined. I am also homespun, reliable and laid back. I love country back roads as much as cityscapes. Most men find me charming, engaging, kind and easy to be with. I am not a type A personality. I am extremely feminine and enjoy being that way. I will never apologize for being a woman. In my closet you will find stilettos, cowboy boots, athletic shoes and flats. I am not pretentious or a snob. I can enjoy high brow and down home. I was once described as a dichotomy and I liked that.
I am a widow of 9 years with a college aged son that lives away. I am available and emotionally ready to date. I have had hardships in my life but prefer to learn from those and move forward instead of becoming bitter or dragging along old baggage. I have learned to be independent although look forward to a day when I can be dependant on my man. I am very traditional in many ways.
I am a woman of faith and would love a companion to be by my side in church. My Christian faith is my foundation which all decisions are measured by. I am not a regular church attender although enjoy it and need it when I make the time for it. I just hate being alone at church.
I am not into playing games unless it is on the court, field or green. I enjoy meeting honest men who are independent, smart, witty and confident because I am the same. I am not afraid of meeting you in person and prefer to do so quickly rather than later. Sometimes emails tend to go on and on.
I think it is still fun to discover things together so you must like adventures! I love when a man notices the small stuff. I want a man to be a man, strong, opinionated and willing to take the lead. I grew up with secure, tall men in my life and have always been drawn to that type. He also needs to be compassionate and giving, someone that can carry on a conversation with insight and interest. I love a man that challenges me to think and not merely follow others opinions. I am a learner so enjoy being introduced to new activities and subjects.
If you are someone that thinks it is sexy for a woman to hang on your every word but challenges you to be articulate, to walk beside you hand in hand but wants to be wrapped in your arms on the sofa, to be dressed to the nines but can be dirt smudged digging in the garden than you might like me. I have a big heart and I love being an encourager.
