Sometimes-elegant, sometimes-tomboy (have jeans... a little black dress... love both, and can be ready to go in an hour), feminine, down to earth, young at heart and very playful, a bit adventurous (if it's legal, ethical and sounds like fun, I'll probably try it... maybe twice, i.e., parasailing, ziplining, snowmobiling, jet skiing, whitewater rafting,etc.), a passionate gardener; sensual, intelligent, witty, strong, sincere; love to kiss, laugh and have fun; can be either quiet or gregarious, depending on how well I know the crowd; and I appreciate and value quality and integrity in all aspects of my life.
I'm happy, fit, active, energetic, optimistic, honest, independent, financially secure with traditional values; a selective, one-man woman who misses doing all the usual things that people do when they're with their best friend, playmate, confidant and lover. He'll be as happy to lay quietly beside me poolside, on a beach or boat, as going and doing. He's attracted to me intellectually, emotionally, and physically... he values and enjoys the company of friends and family, likes to go and do, have fun, play... but also enjoys quiet time.
I’m well-read, well-traveled (much of the U.S., a bit of Canada, Europe many times, a few cruises, and my very most favorite, Maui, more times than I care to admit), spiritual, attend church (not because I'm good, but because I try to be better), emotionally deep... can be opinionated and stubborn, but that's another story - lol. Family and friends would describe me as honest to a fault, a sweetheart, funny, irreverent, outgoing yet private, loyal, giving, and genuine. I’m very close to and proud of my children and grandchildren, and close friends and family mean the world to me.
What I'm looking for is straightforward and uncomplicated: A fit, energetic, playful gentleman of integrity, self-confidence, manners, a great sense of humor who gets mine... and LOVES to kiss... a sweet man who wants to feel special, appreciated and respected, and shows me the same in return. We're at ease with one another, and have each others backs through good days and bad. Trust allows us time and space for separate interests and activities. We agree that honesty, open communication, trust, laughter, teasing, affection, romance and a strong libido are still important elements in a joyful relationship.
You'll find others younger, prettier, smarter, richer (I'm not), taller... the list goes on. What you likely won't find is someone more sure of her values, integrity, sincerity, sense of playfulness, and commitment to a significant other.
Widowed since 2005, I've healed (no baggage; no drama) and built a good life.
Let's go, do, get to know each other and have fun while we're at it... I'm so ready. Are you???
