While beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I am told that I am an intelligent gal who is cute, stylish, socially astute, optimistic, confident, reliable and actively engaged in being a good person.
I am a size 10/12, as comfortable in after 5 as in jeans and a sweater. I look a decade younger than I am (just lucky), and my attitude matches. Happy to be out and about doing fun things or at home making a lovely home. I need a balance of both activities to be happy. While all above are not unique, my love of peace and harmony, determination to live in peace and happiness, my vision of the world and ability to value, share and care for others is unique. People seem to be drawn to me because I am rock steady, understanding and empathetic.
Not looking for "any" relationship, I value OUR happiness and peace as individuals and, if we hit it off, as a couple. Keeping happiness and peace as a central part of our lives requires that we have a relationship in which each respects the other first and always. Drama and upset is simply not how I live. BTW I treat everyone with dignity and respect -- it is the only way I know how to treat anyone and I expect you are the same.
Values are important as a foundation don't you think? I am blessed with all the worldly goods I need and most of what I ever wanted. Might be wonderful to have all the things money can buy, but there is so much that is more important. Those things simply cannot be purchased, at any price. I have the life experience to know. I am looking for those more important things like friendship, connectivity, love and companionship. By the way, my definition of love is beautifully and perfectly summed up in the Bible....1st Corinthians: 13 - no where are the qualities of real love described better!
Seeking the respect, affection and (if it is meant to be) the love of a really decent, REAL, honest, warm, funny, kind, loyal, intelligent and well centered guy! Looking for a partner to share life and love (marriage not a requirement). Rather than someone to sleep with, why not respect yourself and 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. 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!!!
