I find it hard to toot my horn but here goes. Basically, I am considered nice but not a pushover. I am not high maintenance. I can dress up or dress down.
I would like to meet a nice and intelligent man who shares my values of honesty, loyalty, trustworthiness, faithfulness and respect to name a few. The experts say the key to a long and healthy relationship is communication. I agree. I will always try to have your back and support you through good and bad times.
I do not consider myself to be high maintenance. Sure I enjoy a night out on the town at a nice restaurant or movie theater. However, with the right person, a nice dinner and a good movie at home can be just as much fun.
My family will always be important to me. My kids are all grown now and out of the house. So, my time is mine now for creative pursuits(designing jewelry) and hopefully for some travel. Since I prefer every season but winter, it would be nice to get away to someplace warm to enjoy the many outdoor activities such as walking trails ( with a nice guy hand in hand) , kayaking, fishing, bike riding ( not the motorcycle type and no marathons ) and country rides to small towns off the beaten path.
Although sharing some of the values and interests is important, ultimately it is the mutual chemistry that entices us to meet for the first date.
Lastly, I prefer the old fashioned way of meeting someone over a cup of coffee, a drink, or light lunch to the endless emails or texts!
