I'm looking for a man who smells good, knows how to treat a quality woman, and holds the same values I do... family, friends, FUN, honesty, integrity, manners, kindness, sincerity, and warmth... to share everything couples do... trials and triumphs, conversations about any and everything, and common interests. Mutual respect, trust, emotional openness, and the desire for a committed relationship are non-negotiable.
Healthy, responsible, independent, financially comfortable, grounded, caring, sincere. I have my vices... lying about them is one, and STILL they let me into church!! :~) I have two grown children, long married to their high school sweethearts, and four terrific grandchildren.
I live a pretty simple life, filled with family, friends, travel, gardening, reading, volunteer work... all things that enhance the quality of my life. I love to go and do, home improvement projects, music, thought-provoking movies, and anything in, on or near water. I'm a bit elegant and a bit tomboy, classy, sensual and playful, serious with a bent sense of humor, I know what's going on in the world, am conservative in my politics, and a little adventurous: If it’s legal, ethical and sounds like fun, I’ll probably try it… maybe twice!!
