I am willing to relocate for the right man, and to the right location. I lived in the S. F. Bay Area for 22 years. I am getting my home, in the San Diego area, ready to place on the market. I am in the process of moving from Southern CA to Northern CA. Any place North of Los Angeles, preferably the Coastal area, is appealing to me. I have not decided on the place where I would want to spend the rest of my life (retirement place). I will be staying, temporarily, in Manteca, CA during the relocation process. I am continuing my search for my ideal retirement place. Finding "Mr. Right" will definitely influence my decision on the ideal location to retire. As of February, 2016, seriously considering the Monterey/Salinas area.
I am a Meyer Briggs Personality type: INFJ
I am searching for my last and best love, for quality companionship. I am widowed. People say that I am intelligent. I am educated (JD), 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." I have a sense of humor. I am affectionate, caring, playful, nurturing, and am a compassionate person. Politically, I am a centrist. I am spiritual but I do not belong to any organized religious group. (Why do so many men say they fear God and want a God-fearing woman?). The Golden Rule has worked for me. I come from very humble beginnings. I am a hard worker, and have many interests. Most of my life I have been involved in community work, and I enjoy helping others to find solutions to their problems, which often can be resolved with the use of common sense. I prefer casual attire, but can dress-up for the occasion.
I love to explore new places. I love nature, and enjoy outdoor activities. There is something magical about the ocean breeze, the smell of pine trees, the splendor of bright colors of flowers in bloom, watching birds build a nest. I like to cook, I enjoy creating flower designs, and have been involved in several construction projects, which I enjoyed very much. I enjoy most music, dancing, concerts, theater, movies, entertaining small groups, and enjoy a game of pool.
ABOUT THE MAN I AM SEARCHING FOR:
My wish list (one can dream): If I find someone with some of the qualities I desire in my future partner, I will consider myself very lucky. 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. I do not expect perfection, as I am not perfect. I made mistakes, but I have emerged from those situations, a wiser woman, having learned from my mistakes. I move forward.
I am in search of my last, best, and the GREATEST love of my life. He is an achiever. 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. 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 affectionate but not clingy. 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 7/12, 9/13, and 4/15.
I love nature and enjoy the outdoors, with walks on the beach being my favorite outdoor activity. I like to play pool, like to cook, but I also like to occasionally go out to enjoy fine dining, or to discover that quaint "hole-in-the wall" cozy restaurant with a reputation, among locals, for excellent food. Family and friends are important to me, but if I were in a relationship, my man and I will be NUMBER ONE for each other.
Please respect the age range preference that I indicated, above, 64-74. (If your age is under 64, most likely we are not compatible). While I do not measure intelligence by the college degrees a man has obtained, I am attracted to intelligent men who are articulate and who are communicative. I am attracted to men who are affectionate.
