What am I looking for? Affection, warmth, holding hands, hugs, kisses, intellectual conversations, passion, have adventures, compatibility. I don't want to be married, but I do want a love/partner to grow older with. It's so much more fun with someone! lol I've retired from work, but not from Life! I want to go, do, see things, but still have some 'quiet' times with AND without my partner. Also, I can compromise on a lot of things, but not on compatibility. I need to feel a sense of ease/be comfortable with my 'date'. That is foremost. Unfortunately, you can't 'feel' that by looking at someone's picture or reading their 'words'. So, I like to meet in person sooner, rather than later. Only then will you know if that 'feeling' is there...by knowing that you are relaxed, feel your 'walls' coming down, and just enjoy talking and being with that person. However, sometimes, it takes more than once, to know the 'inside' of someone, to know if there is any 'physical chemistry' there as well. The first is more important to me. If that's there, then the 2nd will hopefully come, if its meant to be. I am looking for a boyfriend/partner/lover for a long term, monogamous relationship. I'm a one-man woman and want a one-woman man.
Also, I saw this following quote on a gentleman's profile and so agreed with it that I wanted to share it. "Here's how I see it: our youthful physique is on the wane (hell, for must of us, it's already waned) and the elements of beauty have ceased to be based on physical qualities. During this Winter of our lives and as we seek our last love, shouldn't we base our search upon less superficial qualities?" ...Well said, don't you think?
I have a passion for life and am a positive person who loves to smile and laugh (especially at myself). I'm trustworthy, spontaneous, unpredictable, attractive, intelligent & clever, love freedom, too sensitive & easily hurt, romantic on the inside(would you dance w/me in the rain? Kiss me during a tropical storm?lol), a bit eccentric, love reality and abstract, a bit rebellious when restricted, and a genuine happy spirit. I think maybe I'm an 'acquired taste'...you have to get used to me! THEN you'll love me! lol
I like and appreciate men who are romantic,attentive, a bit aggressive/manly, and who likes doing the 'little things'. I'm 100% committed to those I care about and who care about me.I love my jeans, but 'dress up' nice. It would be nice if you liked good old fashion romancing...like holding hands,
snuggling, hugs, long, slow kisses, PDAs. I look at a guy's eyes and smile first. They tell me a lot!
*GENTLEMEN, PLEASE, if a lady has taken the time and gotten up the nerve to send you a message of interest, be considerate enough to send a response, even if your not interested! I'm sure a lot of you would want us to do the same thing. I think we are all on here looking for the same. Besides, it's just common courtesy. Your mom didn't raise you to be rude, I'm sure. So make her proud! lol Thanks!
I do my best to maintain a healthy diet and stay active, but I'm a constant 'work in progress', lol No one is perfect and I don't look for that. We all have 'little things' we'd like to 'fix', but as long as we do our best to try to say healthy & active, that's all that really counts. I would like my partner to feel the same way. I recently joined a gym and work out at least 3 or 4 times a wk. It makes me feel good, tones up my muscles, and helps me to be all I can be. I will reach my goal by the end of this year...if not sooner! I had let myself gain a few lbs that I'm not comfortable with. So I am doing something about them!! lol However, I believe that I am still a beautiful woman both inside and out!
Think outside the box. Young in mind and spirit!
Organization and juggling a budget!! lol
Oh! and kissing/hugging, too! :)
