WILLING TO RELOCATE FOR THE RIGHT MAN. For 4 years I have been exploring different areas where I would like to spend the rest of my life. (For several years I have wanted to relocate from Southern CA to Northern CA, or to other areas). I have explored areas in WA, in OR, N/E of Sacramento, the Monterey area, the San Jose Area, and Trilogy Retirement communities for "Active Adults." Most recently, I have explored the coastal areas in CA. I have not made a final decision on this matter, yet. I am still exploring. I accepted an offer to use a nice home, a temporary arrangement, during the relocation process. I still have some matters I need to conclude in Southern CA. I am ready to relocate to Northern CA, unless I become motivated to stay in Southern CA.
I have been on this site, on and off, for over 4 years. I have read hundreds of profiles of men between the ages of mid 60's to mid 70's. I have received more initial messages from men who are under 60 years of age then from men who are close to my age. Thus, the request to not be contacted by men who are under 65. Reading and viewing so many profiles, I have formed opinions and impressions of men, and continue to try to understand men who are close to my age. I will share a joke that often comes to mind as I read some profiles:
A couple was celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversary at a nice restaurant. Suddenly, a Fairy appeared and announced that she was going to grant each one wish. The wife excitedly announced that she wanted to go on a nice romantic cruise with her beloved husband. The Fairy told her that her wish was granted, handing her a package for a 30 day cruise, all expenses paid for two. The husband looking a bit nervous, turned to his wife of 50 years and said, "Honey, I am sorry. I love you, but I always wished to be with a woman 30 years younger than my age." Instantly, his wish was granted. He became 30 years older than his wife. His face was totally wrinkled, he had no teeth, no hair, was on a wheel chair, and could no longer sit straight.
Now, About Me:
I am searching for quality companionship. I prefer inner beauty.
I am widowed. People say that I am intelligent. I am educated (JD), communicative, and a good listener. I enjoy interesting conversations. According to people who know me, I am friendly, caring, and down-to-earth. They say that I am a person of "unquestionable integrity." I have a sense of humor. I am affectionate, caring, playful, nurturing, and am a compassionate person. Politically, I am a Centrist. I am spiritual but I do not belong to any organized religious group. (Why do so many men say they fear God and want a God-fearing woman?). The Golden Rule has worked for me. I come from very humble beginnings. I am a hard worker, and have many interests. Most of my life I have been involved in community work, and I enjoy helping others to find solutions to their problems, which often can be resolved by applying common sense. I prefer casual attire, but can dress-up for the occasion.
I love to explore new places. I love nature, and enjoy outdoor activities. There is something magical about the ocean breeze, the smell of pine trees, the splendor of bright colors of flowers in bloom, watching birds build a nest. I like to cook, I enjoy creating flower designs, and have been involved in several construction projects, which I enjoyed very much. I enjoy most music, dancing, concerts, theater, movies, entertaining small groups, and enjoy a game of pool.
ABOUT THE MAN I AM SEARCHING FOR: If you are under 64, most likely we are not compatible. I prefer men closer to my age.
My wish list (one can dream): I am searching for that elusive "Special Man," who would like to take the remaining one third of life's journey with me, not necessarily seeking to get married, again, but I want a long-term committed monogamous relationship. However, I realize that as we get older, we become more selective.
I view life as a journey, not a destination. I do not expect perfection, as I am not perfect. I have made mistakes, but I have emerged from those mistakes, a wiser woman. I learned from my mistakes. I move forward.
My ideal partner is friendly, communicative, a good listener, adventurous, spontaneous, affectionate, loving, has a good sense of humor, is loyal, and is ready for a LTR. There must be the right chemistry between us. I do not limit my definition of "chemistry" to physical attraction. It includes mutual respect, liking each other, personality, and character traits.
I am affectionate but not clingy. I enjoy some sports, like to play pool, board games, hiking, etc. IT IS WHO I AM WITH THAT WOULD CREATE MEMORABLE MOMENTS, NOT THE ACTIVITY. I must have humor in my life. I am into a healthy lifestyle. I go to the gym 3 to 4 times per week, and prefer a healthy diet.
ABOUT MY PHOTOS: Taken between 7/12, 9/13, and 4/15, and 2/18/16.
I love nature and enjoy the outdoors, with walks on the beach being my favorite outdoor activity. I like to play pool, like to cook, but I also like to occasionally go out to enjoy fine dining, or to discover that quaint "hole-in-the wall" cozy restaurant with a reputation, among locals, for excellent food. Family and friends are important to me, but if I were in a relationship, my man and I will be NUMBER ONE for each other.
Please respect the age range preference that I indicated, above, 65-74. (If your age is under 65, most likely we are not compatible). While I do not measure intelligence by the college degrees a man has obtained, I am attracted to intelligent men who are articulate and who are communicative, and who are affectionate. You must enjoy outdoor activities, and enjoy the simple things in life.
