If the answers are YES, let's talk and figure out the next step. Not a paying member, so not sure how that works. If I do get your message I PROMISE I WILL read your profile and RESPOND even if it is to remind you that you are NOT LOCAL (see first line).
Hopefully just like you, I seek a partner/friend to share adventures, conversations and fun! If a miracle occurs and we really connect, (and over time it grows into more), we will be thrilled and among the very blessed.
Enjoy theatre, music, movies, picnics, conversations, being home, cooking, relaxing, good conversations, water balloon and snowball fights and dancing in the rain!!
YOU are the man I am looking for if YOU ARE; reasonably healthy and mobile, in charge of your own life, fiscally responsible, intelligent, confident, addiction free, literate, honest, reliable, kind, conversant, loving and are looking to share at least some of your time with your best friend (and if you, too, are hoping that friendship might lead to much more - a real bonus).
My family, friends and colleagues say I have a sunny disposition, am intelligent, worldly, accomplished, cute, kind, curious, thoughtful, stylish, generous, funny, a wonderful friend, socially astute, well educated, earthy, independent, optimistic, confident, competent and reliable. I know because I actually asked them!
I am well travelled (nationally and internationally), with a great attitude, And most of the time, I can be ready to go anywhere informal 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). Am equally comfy in jeans and a sweater. I look a decade younger than I actually am (absolutely NOT VAIN, just genetically blessed).
Do not need/want validation from a relationship, I am already whole - 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 if I didn't have a photo here. 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 IN MICHIGAN, and FREE to meet and enjoy the company of a woman (which includes you having independent adult children, if you have children).
