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 petite, 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 cooking, watching a movie, talking and laughing. I need a balance of both activities to be happy. While all above are not unique, my love of peace and harmony, and determination to live that way are. People seem to be drawn to me because I am kind, happy, rock steady, understanding and empathetic.
Not looking for "any" relationship, I value OUR happiness and, if we hit it off, as a couple. Keeping that 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 be.
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 (provided by me). Might be wonderful to have all the things money can buy, but there is so much that is more important. The things that are more important simply cannot be easily found or purchased at any price. Looking for those things -- like friendship, connectivity, love and companionship. 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 REALLY treat yourself well 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!!!
