I do know what I'm looking for at my age as I have learned from experience what is not good for me and what is. I don't make snap judgments at first meeting but a first impression can be important. I don't care to casually date someone for a long period of time (years) if there's no connection there; just for the convenience and sake of going. If there's a connection when you're dating; then it develops into a relationship. I am country (not hick; redneck of hillbilly)at heart;like the simple things but also the extravagant now and then as well.I like the wilderness and sometime even primitive wilderness. Thoreau said that wilderness is the preservation of the world.
I've never put a $ sign on love but Any instability can take the enjoyment from a relationship be it debt,infidelity,addictions. *** I'm stable emotionally and financially (I manage money;have investments and pay my bills when they are due)I've never taken drugs (the one rx that I have is subject to be obsolete with a little fine tuning,exercise and healthier eating habits) nor have I been arrested or jailed. I have escaped some traffic tickets out of being totally respectful and honest with law enforcement. If I don't engage in any of this lifestyle..Why would I tolerate anyone who does? Been with the Bad Boys !Don't need anyone to take care of me.***Have an Associate degree and have recently retired with a State agency after 20 years and 7 months service*** Want someone to love unconditionally; share deepest feelings; hopes;fears and aspirations with and encourage.*** I prefer a fairly active lifestyle and love the outdoors. Love to cook (and I can cook) for someone special that will appreciate the effort. I am no barbie but fairly well proportioned and look decent in my clothes that fit. Like the word nutrition better than diet.
Looking for a love with a perpetual white flame that burns hot without the impurities and trash. Perpetual means unending;continuing forever and having no expiration date. Prefer well groomed masculine appearance to the smooth and handsome. I do like a little twinkle in the eye and passion is a must as well as mututal respect and enjoying each others company. I'm very open minded and trustworthy but have a strong woman's intuition and knowing when someone is telling the truth.*** My faith and trust in God has been my shield against trouble and adversity that I've had in life. There's a lot to be said about forgiving and accepting forgiveness. I grew up on a small East Texas farm that I now live on and have a little Tomboy blended in with feminine attributes. I'm thankful for everything I have and the accomplishments I've made in life. I would hope my companion would see my virtues outweigh any shortcomings that I have.
Something comfortable to both in the time and place selected..conversation in a quiet and relaxed atmosphere.. maybe something outdoors by the water...I have met some of the "air signs" but chances are it 'd be like finding a needle in a haystack for it to develop...rolling around in the hay to get stuck would not be discussed. More into the earth signs.
