Care to join me? :D
You see "Wow!" moments in everyday life. 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 have grown children. Experience has taught me that this will make it easier for us to relate and blend our lives with them and with grandchildren. The man in my future enjoys a variety of fun pursuits and is not just looking for someone to fit into his own lifestyle, but to create something together with... Perhaps this includes antiquing, a museum or gallery 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'm looking for someone to stimulate my mind and the rest will follow...
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 daughters support my search for someone that is equally grounded and romantic... Despite life's adversities, 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! "Tell me the secrets of your soul... tell me who you really are"... and I will share with you.
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'll reply. Best wishes fishing, and remember... "Love all, trust a few... do wrong to none." ~ William Shakespeare
*Note to men in my age demographic regarding the profile question: Do you want children? When I see "undecided/open" it's pretty clear you're casting a wide net. Women our age clearly give a different answer... Just an observation ;)
It doesn't matter 'what' or 'where' that determines how well our first meeting turns out, but that we have fun. And if it's mutual, who knows, it may lead to a real first date... then a second... a third...
