NOTE: I've changed my mail settings... they were inadvertently set to prevent non-upgraded members from contact. I hope you'll try again if interested. My apologies.
I’m searching for that so-far elusive connection... spiritual, emotional, intellectual, and physical. I've been looking for you a good long while, neither confident I'll find you... nor willing to give up. Honesty and integrity are values I live by, and appreciate in those close to me.
I am a pretty simple woman, with simple wants and needs. I have "enough"; just looking for someone with whom to enjoy it all. I've been widowed from the heart-of-my-heart for a good long while, and took the time to heal fully. I'm in a good place emotionally.
My likes and interests: Local concerts, art and wine festivals, travel, entertaining, political discourse (I'm conservative), some sports (Go Giants!), architecture, design, making a house a home, gardening (veggie garden, too), swimming, scenic drives, road trips, movies that make me think (i.e., Sideways; I'll See You In My Dreams), and especially anything on, in or near water (it's where I'm most at peace).
I'm a bit adventurous: if it's legal, ethical and sounds like fun, I'll probably try it... maybe twice! I prefer outdoors to in. My golf is good for... not much; but I enjoy playing anyway - lol. Close friends and family mean the world to me. I attend church (a non-issue if you don't), volunteer monthly preparing homeless shelter meals, enjoy a book club and Trivial Pursuit dinner group (more social than brainiacs... although there are a few of those in the group lol), dressing for the occasion, but need and enjoy down time as well. I'm sometimes elegant; sometimes tomboy - comfortable with both. An occasional cigarette is my only vice... well, that and lying about my vices :~). I'm healthy, happy, playful, sincere, sensitive, very much a one-man woman, and blessed beyond measure to be financially secure. I have a very good life, enough "things", but I miss being half of a fun, loving, committed couple where trust and communication are paramount.
I'm looking for the one man who matters to me as much as I matter to him, who appreciates being at ease with one another. Things will unfold as they're meant to. I won't settle; neither will you.
If you've read this far and something resonates, send a smoke signal. I'm looking for you, too.
