I am here to find a man who already made his mark in the world, is close to retirement or retired (if a career, it is fun, rewarding with time off to travel so he's financially stable) and graciously has room for his forever best friend, lover, confidante, travel and outdoor activity partner. We thrive by making each day account for something, helping one another and others in the little ways that is truly beneficial. We both must be fit in mind, body and spirit to enjoy this life together in discovery and adventure! I am drawn to intelligence, wit, a great sense of humor and an outdoorsy guy who loves meeting new people, seeing new places and trying new things.
Would be nice if a loving, nurturing partner w/ same values, interests and who supports what I love to do! He feels comfortable expressing his feelings in an open and loving way. Hope he is easy going and awakes early and happy, since I do. He stays positive most every day since it takes a lot to get me down!
Do you miss a lingering kiss, not wanting it to end? Do you love holding hands for the sheer pleasure of touch, not wanting to let go?
Do you miss feeling anticipation for that special love of your life?
My life has been full and I've taken unusual paths early on which taught me valuable and rewarding lessons that took others much longer to learn.
I am blessed because of it.
I don't take life itself, special moments-in-time or anyone for granted.
I love walking, running and cycling near the beach as our Pacific ocean grounds me. I miss outrigger and boogie-boarding in Hawaii, lived there 12 years. My favorite time of year is spring/summer as I enjoy gardening, landscaping, painting, photography and BBQ's. I have integrity, high-morals and I am loyal, sometimes a character with lots of banter and laughter! Chemistry is just that...and how does one dismiss it? See the goodness in others, why not? Time reveals a lot if one is patient.
Please do not be overweight, as I am attracted to slender and/or men in good condition who live an active life so we fit being together, you know?
I thrive living near the ocean and when I go, blessed to be there even if it's only for a few minutes to watch the surf! I click with watermen because they must be there or near water! By the way, mountain men aren't all that bad either! Life lived with passion is key, family and friends paramount. It's the little things I marvel at...palm fronds purring through tradewinds, fragrant plumeria or night blooming jasmine wifting into my bedroom window, sandy toes, salt water shining on my skin, taste of scrumptious lobster or Opakapaka ...the five senses working at all times. I love walking, running and cycling near the beach as our Pacific ocean grounds me. I miss outrigger paddling and boogie-boarding in Hawaii. My favorite time of year is spring/summer as I enjoy outdoor sports, gardening and BBQ's. I have integrity, high-morals and I am loyal, love to laugh until my cheeks hurt! Chemistry is just that...and how does one dismiss it? I see the goodness in others, why not?
Wouldn't it be terrific if we could be eternally best friends and lovers?
We can find out our idiosyncrasies and major differences as we get to become friends.
Sunday mornings are special to me...I attend mass in a tiny chapel and do whatever comes to mind that day! But, if I were with my mate,
there would be even more wonderful ways to spend time together!
I don't know what to put down as age limit because chronological age doesn't reflect energy, open-minded spirit, health or playfulness..uhmmm.
By the way, skeptical &/or critical and possessive men would be frustrated by my open exuberance. Also, if you are afraid to commit, please stay clear of me.
WARNING: I have a lot of positive energy yet, know how to relax and do so easily. I am not here to go through the motions so I cut to the chase.
Let's be BOLD, FEARLESS when it makes sense.
A 2nd generation native Californian, young surfer girl who raised her 2 children in Hawaii (daughter & granddaughter born in Kealakekua) yes, much slower pace and thank God!
11 of 13 climactic zones on the Big Island. The kid in me reignited living there 12 years and I'm blessed for it! There are hidden "hole-in-the-wall" cafes with phenominal food, unique ambiance that rival major resorts' fare. I'm wild about fabulous food ! Hopefully a prerequisite for my future lover and life partner ! We all know healthy, exquisite or simply wonderful food is nurturing and sexy too, don't we ?
There is more sensuality in every molecule of air in Hawaii, Tahiti and other tropical destinations than should be legal!!!
**P.S. I come from a long line of entrepreneurs, comfortable taking calculated risks. I'm an asset in Business Ventures and I'm blessed to be an
idea person ! If we are not a match, I am always open to sharing ideas, concepts and knowledge !!
