I am a fit, slim, educated woman looking forward to sharing the excitement of the next phase of my life. With some time and effort, I am confident that I will, at least, meet some new friends and eventually find a lifelong partner. I have recently retired from a profession I thoroughly enjoyed. I am financially independent and do not need to be taken care of - in that sense. My interests are many and walking, hiking, boating and travel are right at the top. Spending a few months each winter in a warmer climate is one of my goals. The qualities I look for in another person are the same I like to think are in myself - basically, a high degree of integrity.
Although I do not have the way with words that Elizabeth Barrett Browning had with her poetry (ie. headline quote), I do feel I have the capacity to love that she expressed so well. I am looking for a serious relationship. If you are too, maybe we should talk.
