This is the most difficult part of the entire profile. I'm an educated woman who loves intellectually stimulating people. While I love to travel, I don't like to do so alone; it is much more pleasant to share an experience. I like wine (I prefer white to red),roses, and orchids. I'm an animal lover. I am looking for a self assured man who is romantic, and likes to take care of the ones he loves By that, I mean he enjoys doing little things for others, not being a manny. I enjoy learning about my significant others hobbies whether or no they interest me and I expect the same respect.. I am very independent but I believe that two people who are in love are two halves of a whole; never truly being comfortable without the other. While I value intimacy, it is not the hallmark of a good relationship. If you value the other person's soul,and overall well-being and try to value the other then the intimacy follows and only enriches what you have.
. I'm not about rushing into the physical side of the relationship I wish to become friends first and let love grow. So many people think that they have to recreate the hot, one night stand times of their youth. That kind of love burns out quickly. I want the cuddling, talks, intimate dinners, walks, looking into each other's eyes, soft kisses and romance. The physical side comes with love, but you need to have a best friend too.NEW ADDENDUM: After over 3 years ,almost 4, in Florida, I have relocated back to PA. My elderly mother is not doing well and I wish to be back in PA. My grandchildren are also here so that is a plus. Also, up front gentleman: 13 yrs ago I was in a near fatal car crash. I walk with a cane due to 2 artificial hips and a lot of titanium.....I am the bionic woman!! LOL!!!! I only use the cane for long distance walking and not around the house or in my yard unless my arthritis is acting up. The cane offends some men so if it offends you then I am not for you.....I can still dance and other things I just can't do any long distance marathon running. :))))))
Also, to date me you must be a free-thinker and non-judgemental. My grown son lives with me to make sure that I am safe. It was a decision made by him and my eldest daughter because I occasionally fall. About my son: he is a transitioning male to female transgender or tranny.....not a drag queen. Her decision to live with me is not something that we would have preferred, but it is what it is, and I am grateful that my children love me enough to be concerned. That being said please find me I am lonely and want to find my companion. Love and Light.
I would definitely leave that up to you, but someplace romantic so that we can talk and get to know each other is best.....a little cafe for coffee, a quiet dinner, or even a walk if the weather is good. Two suggestions: leave the cell phone off; while I don't wish to be the center of attention, I do want you to make me feel like you want to get to know me. Second, no obscene phone calls. I do have morals.
