Thanks for swimming by and viewing my profile! (If you are a player, please just keep on swimming!)
Are you looking for "THE REAL DEAL?" If so, then this makes two of us and we are off to a swimming start!
Helloooo! Is anyone out there?! Does this sound like YOU?
I'm looking for my...'Mr. REAL DEAL'...and NOT 'Mr. Perfect!' I'm seeking for my lifetime partner,.the "One who is the perfect 'ONE' for ME,
and I for HIM! Ultimately, I am searching for my lifetime soul mate and best friend, I saw this " It is not what he has, nor even what he does, which directly expresses the worth of a man, but what he IS." (Henri Amiel)
He will be a man who has honesty and integrity, loves deeply, is nurturing, communicates openly, gives freely, wants a healthy, intimate passionate relationship where we have created an environment where: I can grow; you can grow; I can be me; you can be you; we can be us and can grow together. Someone who has matured but still maintains and celebrates the "gleeful child" within! Someone who would enjoy loving playfulness and laughter! Every day is a celebration of love and life. "A marriage without a sense of humour is like a wagon without springs—jolted by every bump in the road." (Ouch! That would really really hurt!) Lol
FIRST THINGS FIRST:
My one and only previous marriage of ten years, has been annulled and a decree of divorce granted over twenty years ago.
Sorry, please do not reply if you are "separated." Separated means you are still married and this should be a time for working things out and if that is not possible then obtaining closure and healing before moving on and no one should get in the way of that. I realize every situation has its own story, however to me, separated is still married. Thank you for your kind understanding.
SWIMMING RIGHT ALONG NOW, LOOKING TOWARDS THE FUTURE...
Dating, or we can just call it "going out" and friendship must come first, of course, taking our time, getting to know one another and see where it goes. People come into our lives for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. If a serious relationship blossoms, then great! If it doesn't, then our time will have been well spent making a new friend!
I am 71 years YOUNG. (Don't let the numbers fool ya!) Lol "The Best Is Yet To Be!" I have a zest for life and ready to live it fully! I am a devoted mother of four wonderful adult daughters who are all living on their own and four delightful grandchildren, and one great granddaughter. (And a sweet baby daughter in heaven) All of who are the loves of my life!
I am passionate about my faith, loving my soul mate, family, friends and life in general. Truthful, respectful, faithful, very loving and caring (not smothering!) and basically a happy joyful well balanced person, with a good sense of humour, who does not sweat the small stuff. You will find I am a "Romantic"; however I have both feet planted firmly on the ground...unless you would like to sweep me off of them that is!
My special "ONE AND ONLY" will be A ONE WOMAN MAN, who is loving, faithful, loyal, affectionate, passionate, compassionate, honest and true. Gentle and kind, with a good sense of humour, and loves to live life joyfully and not afraid to show affection openly (In good taste of course.) That special Some "One" who lives life being positive and one whose cup is either half full or running over and enjoys going with the flow!
Looking for my Soul Mate to pray with, laugh and play with,exercise with, and celebrate all we are together and all we can become, with Christ as the "CAPTAIN" of our "relation-SHIP!" We become "ONE" through His Grace and Love.
We should both be happy and content within our own selves first and not solely dependent upon the other for our own happiness and contentment, but rather adding to each others lives those elements of the joy and love we both long to share and find in one another as we grow in relationship together. "A marriage is two people trying to dance a duet and two solos at the same time." To have the kind of love where you both truly become "One."
I am looking for my lifetime "Soul Mate" to celebrate and share God's plan for our lives with as we make our journey home to Him. Someone whose life is God centered and is excited about all the possibilities He has planned for us!
Life is short! Walk humbly, act justly, and forgive quickly. Love unconditionally, kiss slowly, (then kiss some more!) and at times laugh uncontrollably!
Ralph Waldo Emerson said...
"The purpose of life is not just to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honourable, to be compassionate, and to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well."
I know not what the future holds, but I KNOW WHO holds the future!
Life is a dance, care to give it a whirl?
NON SMOKERS ONLY PLEASE
Yes; I would perhaps consider relocating for the "REAL DEAL" however would prefer to stay here in the Niagara region.
Something to think about...
No one falls in love by choice, it is by CHANCE.
No one stays in love by chance, it is by WORK.
No one falls out of love by chance, it is by CHOICE.
Live life on purpose, to the fullest! "Carpe Diem!"
Thank you for viewing my profile and may God bless you in your search. May you find all the love and joy your heart can hold!
"TTFN!" as Tigger would say! Bounce! Bounce! Happy landings!
Blessings! Carol... (Aka)"Tigger"
LIFE ISN'T ABOUT WAITING FOR THE STORM TO PASS! IT'S ABOUT LEARNING TO DANCE IN THE RAIN!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
FOR OUR FIRST GETTING TO KNOW YA "MEET AND GREET" Let’s see if we connect!
We could meet someplace cozy and casual that has a quiet atmosphere, for a beverage or perhaps a glass of wine?
Perhaps on an outdoor patio close to the water or a local sidewalk cafe, Vinny's is great indoors or outside, also the Botanical gardens outdoor cafe is nice.... (Let's skip the Tim Horton's or fast food scene ok? It is too busy and not really conducive to having an in depth conversation!)
It can be an exciting and pleasant experience to meet new people. Let's take time to chat, enjoy the ambience of one another's company and get to know one another. Who knows! We might just feel that special 'spark' of gee, I would really like to get to know this person better... and we decide to discuss having our REAL first date! Our first meeting really isn't a "date"...it's two strangers getting to know each other and then we can see if we want to see where this can go...perhaps that elusive *"MAGIC CHEMISTRY" might evolve.
(When I say "MAGIC CHEMISTRY" I am not speaking just from a hormonal point of view here, it is much more than that... I am speaking of chemistry not just based on hormones but encompassing the physical, mental and spiritual dimensions of each person as one relates and gets to know the other. So many relationships and marriages fall apart because the couples fell in "hormones", and not necessarily in love.)
Perhaps we might even feel like we wish to prolong our initial "MEET AND GREET" (no pressure here) into spending the day together, and go for a nice walk in the botanical gardens, or to Port Dalhousie, walk on the pier or beach or go down to Niagara on the Lake and explore! Talk some more, sharing our day...perhaps a lovely dinner later and good conversation, watch the sun go down by the water, the end to a perfect day, and just perhaps, a journey into new possibilities! (Oh, did I mention I'm a dreamer too? Lol) Ya never know! Sometimes they really do come true!
On the other hand if we do not feel a connection with one another, there is no pressure, as Dr. Oz would say, we are in a "no embarrassment zone" and we would at least have had an opportunity to explore the possibilities! Nothing ventured, nothing gained!
Down the road at some point, if you feel so disposed, it would be great to attend Mass together. That indeed would be a definite bonus!
"Wherever you are, whenever it's right,
you'll come out of nowhere, and into my life."
