What I'm looking for: A deep intellectual, emotional, spiritual, physical and FUN connection... you're as drawn to me as I am you. I'm very bored with flying solo in a couples world.
No need to rescue me!! I've healed, and worked hard to rebuild a good life. I am abundantly blessed, drama-free, mostly happy (except finding that one special man with whom to share it all). I'm a planner, organized, and always have things to look forward to... but sharing would make it all the sweeter.
Things I enjoy and/or are of importance to me: Being in a committed and playful relationship; intelligent, open communication about things great and small; having fun (humor and laughter); kissing, teasing, touch, cuddling; close friends and family; music that moves me; golf (an enthusiastic beginner, so lower your expectations - lol), being outdoors, both formal and casual entertaining, gardening, home improvement projects, cooking, thought provoking movies, books I can't put down, gourmet dining, wine tasting (drinking, actually... bold reds are a fave); theater, travel, beautiful architecture, and anything that puts me in close proximity to water.
Me... Well aware of my flaws, I am impressed by integrity, character, dignity, respect, emotional depth, honesty, a little humility, a great deal of humor, a passion for living life, how you treat me and others. I am... happy, strong, healthy, independent, feminine, resourceful, opinionated, open, curious, energetic, financially secure, social (but also enjoy quiet time), affectionate, sometimes funny, sometimes intense, sometimes elegant, sometimes tomboy... and a bit adventurous. If it's legal, ethical and sounds like fun, I'll probably try it... maybe twice!! I am selective... very much a one-man woman... and enjoying every good thing that life has to offer for as long as possible!!
I'm a mother to two mature, successful, highly independent children (both long-married to their high school sweethearts), and Nana to four grandchildren... all of whom I love deeply... and we are close.
Age is true (I am in COMPLETE denial lol), pics as dated. As for smoking, I quit for 10 years... never touched one... and then crumbled. Enjoy a cigarette occasionally, especially when I'm gardening. It's my only vice... well, that and lying about my vices!
You... Happy where you are for the most part; honest, social, as strong yet tender as I, and emotionally open to a genuine relationship which we both contribute to and benefit from equally; healthy, intelligent, light-hearted with a serious side, still romantic and very sensual... with time and trust we become best friends, confidants and lovers. You aren't afraid to show your vulnerable side, allowing me to show mine. You are cerebral, communicative, tactile, humorous, energetic... sometimes simultaneously.
Together, we smile, tease, and touch a lot - even on our worst days. We're equals... and givers, because that's who and what we are. There's no room for jealousy or control, based on our communications, actions, commitment and respect for one another. We're comfortable having separate interests, as well... and are respectful and supportive of that aspect of our relationship. We thoroughly enjoy each others company, whether out and about, doing chores, or relaxing. We work through issues, and find a balance that suits us both. We're on the same page financially (neither of us live beyond our means, but we FULLY enjoy life). We lean on one another, and count the other as the champion of our secrets, dreams and goals. Sounds simple, but we are both smart, and know it will take effort. We also know it's worth it.
Rather than endless emails, let's talk, meet and see if there's something mutual worth exploring.
