A friend just texted me- "You are such a couple kinda woman." And she is spot on! No fun by yourself. I share. I support. I'm cooperative. I thrive on partnership, couple activities- dining out, backgammon, kissing. MY two for one deals aren't worth a damn on my own.
I'll be blunt. I've had enough short guys from all over the world message me. I want a TALL MAN. I don't need you to be on assignment in Egypt, or at an oilfield in Thailand by way of New York. LOCAL. At least within a few hour drive. While it's romantic to think love can be had from any distance, I'm here to tell you, it takes more than a few emails and a meeting or two to get it right. Taller than 6'2". I'm not looking for a pen pal. I want a forever PARTNER. Someone that I can be comfortable spooning with. If you can't fill the bill, please move on.
I might be cursed, I think blessed to have found two adoring and committed husbands in my lifetime. I lost the first after 22 years of marriage to cancer. The second was an Internet find through American Singles, so I know the system works. He died unexpectedly in a tragic motorcycle accident after only 5 years. I treasured both relationships, and value the closeness and unshakeable bond that is possible with a partner. Is it possible to discover that a third time? (And by the way, I don't reject bikers. Life happens. Accidents happen. We all have our personal pleasures. Far be it for me to tell anyone what they should or shouldn't do!)
Life is about enjoying all the opportunities we have, experiencing the great wonders of the world. And it seems to be more enjoyable when shared. Travel- a drive to the coast or mountains. Longer adventures to Europe or the Caribbean. I'm referred to as "the Travel Queen" by family and friends. I'm known for getting really great deals to great places. When I get there, I can't just sit by the pool. There is a rental car involved. If I'm near water, there will be a catamaran adventure, snorkeling, parasailing or whale watching. I had a black marlin on the hook one time in Zihuatanejo. I circled Aruba on a Harley. I saw the sunrise from the top of Haleakala on Maui. I can't imagine doing any of that on my own.
FINALLY! I am able to call Port Hadlock my only home!! Still renovating, I'll be unpacking boxes for the next decade. But currently "retired", I have some spare time to get it done. Would you like to be my "diversion"??
When I take a vacation, it is somewhere AWAY. I love to travel and favorite destinations include Mexico, the Caribbean, Europe.
The new place has only a third of an acre... I left the llamas in Oregon! I still have quite a bit of renovating to complete- I'll be busy with my nail gun and tile saw for quite a while.
I treasure each opportunity I have to give back to the community. My favorite charity is the local Fire station- I look forward to dropping off garbage bags full of toys for the local kids each Christmas.
Finding a new long-term companion. Looking at profiles on line, and wondering why people post blurry, grainy, crooked or otherwise uncomplimentary photos of themselves. Looking at same photos and wishing I could give these people a haircut or shave...
Also wondering why people who have quit searching leave their profiles on line for us serious lookers to waste our time on.
Finding someone to snowbird with me in a warm winter climate.
