Looking for a partner/friend to meet, date and share adventures, conversations and fun! If it grows into something more, we will be among the very lucky.
I love movies, picnics, conversations, water balloon and snowball fights and dancing in the rain!! You are my kind of guy if you are; in charge of your own life, intelligent, confident, addiction free, literate, honest, reliable, kind, conversant, loving and are looking to start a friendship that might lead to much more.
Those who know me say; I have a sunny disposition, am intelligent, worldly, accomplished, cute, kind, curious, thoughtful, stylish, generous, a wonderful friend, socially astute, well educated, earthy, independent, optimistic, confident, competent and reliable. I know because, cleverly, I asked them! Well travelled (nationally and internationally), with a great attitude, And most of the time, I can be ready to go anywhere in 15 minutes!
5' 2," size 10-12, blue green eyes, as comfortable in dresses, suits,"after 5/formal wear" and heels (and I own some), as I am in jeans and a sweater. I look a decade younger than I actually am (absolutely NOT VAIN, just genetically blessed).
Do not need or want validation via relationship, looking for a terrific guy with whom I can build a rapport, and share adventures. A second marriage is probably not for me.
Blessed with all the worldly goods I need or want (enjoyed an awesome 30 year international career). I am looking for elements of life that are nearly impossible to find and cannot be purchased at any price; friendship, mutual emotional support, connection, love, companionship and trust. Relationships like Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, or Ronald and Nancy Reagan (their relationship) come to mind....
I say nothing here about looks because the PERSON you are is what matters. If you don't have a picture on the site, please be ready to send one as we get acquainted. Let's face it you wouldn't write to me without a photo. I will know you're for me when we can be happy and ourselves when together. In an interview with actress Joanne Woodward, during which her husband, Paul Newman's, "handsomeness" became a topic of discussion, Joanne said, "Sexiness wears thin after a while and beauty fades, but to be with a man who makes you laugh every day, ah -- now that's a real treat." YES it sure would be!
Running a close second are delicious food, (love to cook), fresh cut flowers, corney jokes, great conversations (and a good laugh).
I do not waste time on scammers (but I do report you and I always know you when I see you).
I am exceptionally proud of my career, who I am, the life I have been privileged to live (in the past and presently), and the great integrity with which I live me life. These truths make it is very easy for me to be both honest and authentic. Hopefully, you are too.
Please read my profile as it is very clear who I am and, clearly describes the man I am looking for. I believe I have the most in common with someone at least 55, but that is not a solid rule. However, You MUST truly BE HERE, and FREE to meet and enjoy the company of a woman (which includes you having independent adult children, if you have children).
