... whatever force led you to me
Life excites me! I've lived some of my 'bucket list' while blessed with good health. You'll find me youthful, good-natured, educated in my passion, environmental, self-reliant, intellectual, spiritual, and sensuous. I love my work, enjoy taking care of my own home, and spending time with friends and family. My two grown daughters support my search for someone that is equally grounded and romantic... Despite life's adversities that we all experience, I have a positive view - but am no 'Pollyanna'. I choose this glass to reflect as half-full! In grade 9 my French teacher wrote in my yearbook, "Pour la jeune femme avec une joie de vivre"... Happiness is a choice. Let's choose to walk together, co-creating the best that each of us can be!
You see "Wow!" moments in everyday life that aren't just about you. You're young in spirit, emotionally and geographically available, secure, and have some post-secondary education, knowing that a graduate degree doesn't mean that you graduated from high school ;) You're FIT-to-average, and lead a balanced life. The man in my future has grown children. Experience has taught me that this makes it easier to relate and blend in with grandchildren in the picture. You enjoy a variety of fun pursuits and are not just looking for someone to fit into your own lifestyle, but to create something together with... Perhaps this includes antiquing or a museum visit, taking-in live music, a walk/run along the river, drive/hike in the country, a picnic, a trip to the zoo, kayaking, snowshoeing, movies/films, a great dining experience, live theatre, the symphony, cuddling by a fire at the end of the day, wit and word-play, laughing, and kissing... You are open and know that love requires communication and courage (cœur = French, heart), and haven't lost faith that it will find a way. You have integrity, honesty, and compassion for people as well as for animals. You're interested in the differences between talk and conversation, cabernet and chardonnay, Freud and Jung, jokes and humour, silk and satin, you and me...
I want to be in love once more... for the rest of my life. I want to find myself thinking about you all day - even after the honeymoon phase, and I want to re-run those things you do for/to me over and over in my head again when we are apart so that everyone knows what my silent smile is about... I want us to want to be together even if it's just for coffee, pizza, support at the dentist, at that special event OR side-by-side at a difficult one when we need someone spectacular with us... I want to connect. When we find this, we find "aha" in every moment.
Let time begin now.
I've indicated 'Long Term' but since we have to start somewhere this includes hanging out, friendship, dating for a while, and eventually intimate and loving encounters. I welcome and appreciate your 'Hello', and ask you to please have recent photos. If I see potential for a connection after reading your email/profile, I will reply. Best wishes fishing, and remember... "Love all, trust a few... do wrong to none." ~ William Shakespeare
*Note to men in my demographic regarding the profile question: Do you want children? When I see "undecided/open" it's pretty clear you're casting a wide net. Not many women my age give the same answer... Just an observation ;)
