Life is great after 50! Let the "youngsters" deal with the drama that comes with confusion about who they are and what they want to be when they "grow up," you and I have had enough life experience (both pleasant and unpleasant) that we're confident in ourselves and how we choose to live. Native or transplant, Hawaii is our home, and we love the Big Island. We live gently and respectfully in paradise, taking time to enjoy the natural beauty that surrounds us. We take responsibility for our history, but don't dwell on the past. We take responsibility for our present, and understand that our actions affect the world and people around us, so we make our choices thoughtfully. We have learned from past relationships that kindness and respect can fuel a much longer burning romance and passion than mere words or "the right moves" can ever do. We are still engaged and curious about life, because we know that our understanding of people, life and nature is always incomplete. We are awake and aware of the spiritual interconnection between ourselves and every aspect of the universe, and this makes us feel both humble and strong. We take good care of ourselves and our health, because we know that we're not 10ft. tall and made of titanium as we thought when we were young! We are realistic about what to expect in a person of our age range, and we don't expect or need physical perfection in our partner. We are seeking a deep spiritual connection with another person that enhances both of our lives. This describes me, if it also describes you I want to get to know you better!
Please be a non-tobacco-smoker and live on the Big Island of Hawaii, or have plans to move to the Big Island in the near future. Bonus points if you are creative and have a strong interest in the arts and culture! Mahalo, and good fishing.....
For a first date I think something informal and fun would be good, like swimming at the warm pond or meeting for a cool drink, lunch or dinner at any of the great restaurants in Pahoa, or I can take the bus into Hilo and we can catch a cheap movie by the bay! That way there's no pressure and we have a little time to get to know each other in a public setting. By the second date, you'll know what I like and you can surprise me with the kind of date YOU really like ;)
