I am searching for my last and best love, for quality companionship for the rest of my life. I am NOT seeking a man to compete with. I am widowed, intelligent, articulate, and educated. I am communicative, and a good listener. I enjoy interesting conversations. According to people who know me, I am friendly, caring, and down-to-earth. They say that I am a person of "unquestionable integrity." They say that I have a "heart of gold," (at the price of gold today, if that were the case, I would be quite wealthy). I have a sense of humor. I am a compassionate person. I love life and most people. Politically, I am a centrist. I am turned off by persons with extreme political or religious views. I am spiritual but do not belong to any organized religious group. I come from very humble beginnings. I am proactive, a hard worker, and have many interests. I have been involved in community work most of my life.
I love to explore new places. I am not much into big cities and crowded places. I love nature, and enjoy outdoor activities. I like to cook. I also enjoy creating flower designs, and I have been involved in several construction projects, which I enjoyed very much. I enjoy most music. I am out of practice, but I also enjoy dancing. I like to play pool, enjoy concerts, theater, movies, and entertaining small groups.
ABOUT THE MAN I AM SEARCHING FOR:
I am searching for that elusive "Special Man," who would like to take the remaining one third of life's journey with me, not necessarily seeking to get married, again, but I want a long-term committed monogamous relationship. I view life as a journey, not a destination. Whether one enjoys life's many adventures depends on the person's attitude, and on the choices one makes in life. I do not expect perfection, as I am not perfect. I have never dated men who are much younger than my age.
I frequently get messages from young men in their 20's, 30's, and 40's, young enough to be my children. If you are not within 4 years (younger or older) from my age, DO NOT OFFEND ME BY CONTACTING ME. Just move on.
I am in search of my last, best, and the GREATEST love of my life. He is an achiever, (he is passionate about life, passionate about something). He is intelligent (not necessarily measured by college degrees obtained). He is friendly, communicative, a good listener, he is adventurous, spontaneous, affectionate, loving, has a good sense of humor, is loyal, and is ready for a LTR. If you like to cook and are into outdoor activities, it is a PLUS. There must be the right chemistry between us. I do not limit my definition of "chemistry" to physical attraction. It includes mutual respect, liking each other, personality, and character traits.
I am free-spirited, playful, kind, loyal, and supportive of my partner. I am affectionate but not clingy. I am ready for a loving, monogamous, committed, long-term relationship, with the right man. I do not play head games. I enjoy some sports, like to play pool, board games, hiking, etc. IT IS WHO I AM WITH THAT WOULD CREATE MEMORABLE MOMENTS, NOT THE ACTIVITY. I must have humor in my life. I am into a healthy lifestyle. I go to the gym 3 to 4 times per week, and prefer a healthy diet.
ABOUT MY PHOTOS: Taken between July, 2012, and December, 2012. One of my photos (in my office) was taken September 2013, to submit with an article that I was asked to write for a Newsletter, on a legal issue.
