when your eyes touch mine
a thousand thoughts
and butterflies dance in me
they want us to play
the follow game ~ from my own work
My grandmother fell in love at 81 - 16 years after my grandfather had passed on, so I have faith... Like some of you, I've been on this site a lot longer than I thought I'd be. Like most of you, I have met some wonderful people here. Like all of you, I am here with a purpose, if it takes a lifetime... to find that special someone who from the moment we meet we know that this just might be something special. I am not one to jump into anything with haste only to find out later, I should have looked instead of leapt... and so I wait. I wait until in your company finally things feel... right. They feel easy, good, exciting and I can't wait until the next time we meet. I've received messages from some terrific gentlemen and for one reason or another something seemed missing. You will know too when we meet that I am the woman you have been waiting for. I seek that 'grow with me' kind of life and it is both joyful and deep. I am happy digging my toes in sand or soil, and can easily go from working in the garden to that gala we've been looking forward to later that day. If this rings true, message me. Imagine how we will feel once we begin to explore the rest of the world... together.
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 and the people I work with, 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. 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 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'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: In the Interests section above, for some reason POF over-rides my use of capitals... I've asked them about this and await a reply. Also, there is a new field required about how ambitious one is. I fail to see its relevance since ambition can apply to many things; towards finding a mate, career success, making lots of money... With all the things it could apply to, I find any of the four choices could be misleading... I've chosen what I think to be the most innocuous one. I am neither an underachiever nor overachiever and belief the Buddhist middle-path is a good path to walk. Care to walk with me? :)
