I want something real with a guy that has his act together.
I work full time. I am responsible. I like swimming. I like walking. I'm affectionate, loving and giving. I don't smoke. I can be funny. Talk to me and find out. Don't miss out on a good thing because of fear.
I must have a man that treats me with respect and a deep caring concern.
Never as someone above or below him. Always patient with me no matter if I'm grumpy, acting spoiled and childish (this is very rare for me, I think), sad, tired, indecisive etc.
I must have a man that is fair.
Investing time in the relationship but also giving space when needed. ( Afterall, most of us at this age have become accustomed to living alone) Realizes it is best to equally spend time at home and getting out. Not too much of either.
I must have a man that thinks I am the cream of the crop.
Adores me and shows me with his face, his words, his touch, his kiss, his lovemaking, on a daily basis.
I want and need a healthy sex life within a committed relationship
I'm not college educated but try to stay informed of current events and read a lot. I have strong opinions and like to discuss a variety of topics.
He's tall, practices good hygiene, is good natured mostly and not mean or self centered.
Our likes and passions – family and friends
I like spending time with my children when the opportunity presents itself and want him along. Not every single time but on occasion. I want to be with him when he does something he likes but not every time. We would both realize this is important and not skimp here, being fair but not insisting.
I would hope to find a common ground interest that we would both love doing together. Possibly even make some friends together.
Growing older (ARGH!)
I want someone for the long haul. My hair falls out – he stays. He forgets my name – I write it on his palm. LOL – Oh well you get the idea.
If he has a pet he treats it like a pet not like a girlfriend or his life partner.
He does not smoke and if he drinks it is very very responsibly. No drunks please.
He is employed or, if retired, self reliant. He helps out with daily house chores.
He cares about his health, not a food junkie and visits his doctor and dentist regularly.
I am a loving and giving person and will most likely do best with same.
If you have read this far - I'm trying to figure out why I havn't found someone by now.
