While beauty is in the eye of the beholder (that's you), I am told that I am funny, intelligent, kind, thoughtful, cute, stylish, socially astute, optimistic, confident, competent and reliable. I love to laugh and have fun, definitely have an upbeat sense of humor. Let's face it, funny is the best ice breaker in the world.
I am 5' 1, size 10 petite, as comfortable in formal wear as in jeans and a sweater. I look a decade younger than I am (just lucky), and my attitude and technological know how match. So if you are a scammer you do not want to contact me - trust me.
Happy to be out and about on a date doing fun things or at home cooking, or watching a movie, talking and laughing. I need a balance of both to be happy. While all above are not unique, my love of peace/harmony and determination to live that way are. People seem to be drawn to me because I am loyal, wise, optimistic, helpful, rock steady, understanding and empathetic.
Not looking for "any" relationship, I value OUR happiness. If we make a connection, keeping the specialness as a central part of our lives requires that we respect each other, first and always. Drama and upset are simply not how I live. BTW I treat everyone with dignity and respect -- it is the only way I know how to live.
I am blessed with all the worldly goods I need and most of what I ever wanted (having had a great career and now enjoying a nice retirement). So, what I am looking for has nothing to do with worldly goods, there is so much that is more important and tough to find (and certainly cannot be purchased at any price). I search for those things -- friendship, mutual emotional support, connection, love, companionship and trust.
Seeking the respect, affection and (if it is meant to be) the love of a really decent, honest, warm, funny, addiction-free, kind, loyal, intelligent and well centered regular guy! Corney sense of humor is a real bonus!! Looking for a partner to share life and love (marriage not a requirement). Rather than someone to sleep with, I think it more important to find someone worth waking up with!
My perfect man is far from "perfect." He’s made mistakes, but optimism keeps him going. He's kind and wants to be in a relationship where he is respected and cherished and he will be the same for me. He pays the love and respect given to him back with the same care and generosity of spirit in which it is given.
I am interested in your humanity, not your hairline. Here's a news flash on beauty: you may not believe yourself to be the most attractive man on earth, but it is very interesting how handsome you will be to the woman who falls in love with the whole person you are. I am holding out for THAT kind of love. In an interview with actress Joanne Woodward, during which her husband Paul Newman's "handsomeness" became a topic of discussion, Joanne said, "Sexiness wears thin after a while and beauty fades, but to be with a man who makes you laugh every day, ah -- now that's a real treat." YES!!!
