It is difficult to know what to write to let you know who I am and what I want, but this process demands that I try. My self description is very personal as I want anyone looking at it to know as much as possible about the woman he's contacting.
Retirement and an adult child leave me alone with too much time and too little human contact. I miss feeling wanted and needed. I seek to have a loving relationship that leaves us feeling we have found the missing element in our lives. It takes time to develop the closeness and trust needed to decide we want to spend our lives together. I'm not in a great hurry.
During the "Getting to know you stage" we'll have lots of fun making memories. I love to be hugged and cuddled. I laugh or giggle frequently since I find pleasure in most things. I'm loving, affectionate, devoted, inquisitive, playful, sensual, passionate, open, honest - almost to a fault, and candid.
I love walking, holding hands, hugging, cuddling, traveling, picnicking, attending events such as concerts, craft shows, street fairs, a zoo, playing cards and board games, movies, dancing (but I'm very out of practice), live theater, dining out and in, beautiful sunsets, most animals, romantic times under a moonlit sky, and learning and experiencing new things. I'll happily try most things at least once. I treasure quiet times at home. I like cooking (and being cooked for).
My radio is pre-tuned to Country/Western, Old Time Rock and Roll, Easy Listening, and Light Classical. I'm a good seamstress and enjoy other crafts. I've enjoyed RV travelling, and it would be a bonus if you like it too.
I am a one man woman! I'm financially covered allowing me to look for a companion for the sake of companionship. I've enjoyed being alone, yet I believe we are not intended to live alone. Lives are much more fulfilling when shared. I'd like to wake each morning close to the man I love. I'll always have a smile for him, and I hope he'll be smiling back at me.
The man I will love will enjoy people, family, friends, have a respectful attitude, and will love life. We'll accept each other as we are, flaws included. We'll share each day's new opportunities for living and learning. At the end of my life's journey I want to know I left my little part of the world a bit better for my having been there.
We'll be that older couple people envy seeing them walking hand in hand still in love. I have so much love to give and so many things I want to do with my love/man that I want to find the right person to share them with. While we are in our later years, I look back at my sweet (first) Mother-in-Law who married her third husband at 65-having outlived two previous husbands. That last marriage lasted over 23 years until he died.
If we share similar beliefs and outlook, we may share many happy years together. Please contact me if you feel as I do.
We will decide where to meet and what to do after we have talked enough to believe we want to meet. Most likely, a quiet, public place will be best, and our first meeting should be informal and easily shortened or lengthened as we decide what we want it to be.
