Looking for a real person? I am. Looking to become friends allowing the relationship to grow. I do not demand time (I know you will have the time if you are truly interested).
I enjoy companionship, live theatre, music, movies, picnics, being home, cooking, reading, relaxing, intelligent conversations, coffee, tea, wine, excellent food, gardening, socializing, water balloon and snowball fights and dancing in the rain!!
YOU might be the man I am looking for if YOU ARE; settled, reasonably healthy and mobile, have an open mind, are in charge of your own life, fiscally responsible and solvent, can stand on your own two feet, are 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.
I have one grown and very successful daughter, no baggage, and I like a happy life (I don't do drama)! Family, friends and colleagues say I have the energy and attitude of much younger people, a sunny disposition, am easy to talk to and be around, am intelligent, worldly, accomplished, attractive, kind, curious, thoughtful, stylish, generous, funny, a loyal friend, socially astute, well educated and well mannered, earthy, independent, optimistic, confident, competent and reliable. Can be ready to go anywhere informal in 15 minutes flat! I know what they think because I actually asked them!
Well travelled (nationally and internationally), have lived and worked overseas for 17 years of my 30 year career.
5' 2," size 10-12, with lake blue eyes. I am as comfortable in dresses, skirt suits,"after 5/formal wear" and heels (and I own and wear them), as I am in jeans and t shirts. I look and act at least a decade younger than I actually am (NOT vain, just blessed).
Do not need/want validation from others or from just any relationship. I am already a happy, well adjusted, whole person. A partner and last love is what I want. I am a one man woman, looking for THE ONE who will choose me.
Blessed with all the worldly goods I need or want. I am looking for life elements that are hard 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.
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."
Running a close second are delicious food, (love to cook), fresh cut flowers, corney jokes, great conversations (and a good laugh).
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.
