(NOTE: I am not a full member, so the "Wants To Meet You" feature leaves me no way to find your profile :) I believe there are 2 basic types of people - net givers and net takers. I believe the relationships that work best are between 2 givers. I try to live a lifestyle of eating fairly healthy (though I do confess to a sweet tooth) and exercising regularly. I like to try to keep life fairly simple. I enjoy doing and trying new things - I love to learn. Sports and traveling are always fun. I wouldnt mind learning country or ballroom dancing. I was married for 27 years (faithfully) and have been through some very difficult times. It's kind of amazing how much I've grown and strengthened as a person through the adversity. My faith has taken on a whole new perspective. I enjoy helping others, tend to be empathetic and try not to be judgmental or critical. I enjoy doing volunteer work and am now employed in the Human Services field after many years in banking/finance. I don't drink alcohol, but certainly don't mind if you do. I prefer a non-smoker, but don't mind an occasional smoker. A positive outlook is important to me and I prefer to surround myself with positive-minded people. I'm pretty laid back and slow to anger, but quick to forgive. I simply try to approach life and people with a calm confidence. I've learned that relationships are really what's important in life.
I'm searching for a lady who has reached the level of emotional maturity where people are more important to her than prestige, relationships more valuable than possessions and has a faith that overrides everything...
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Probably just something simple like a meet-and-greet or walk-and-talk. Possibly meet for coffee or lunch. The first meeting should be low pressure, no expectations.
