I am interested in meeting a handsome older man, as I am in my late 50's. People say I don't look my age--you can be the judge. Let's begin by expressing that I consider each day a gift. I am free of prior attachments, emotionally available, and willing to start a relationship based on friendship, honesty, and respect. Is this an old-fashioned rationale in a dating world where the next relationship is just a click away? Thanks for taking the time to read yet another riveting profile. How does one write a candid description without sounding full of them self--is there a way?
I have been told that I am charismatic--that's for you to determine. Perhaps some may consider me articulate with a bright mind and warm heart. I have a nice figure, but I am not a gym person. My diet is healthy, and I lead a relatively active life. I am told I look young, and I certainly act young, so I am looking for the same in a partner. I tell myself that looks should not matter, yet they do. If I don't believe there is potential for chemistry, I likely will not reply. I don't care to waste anyone's time.
I love the ocean and outdoor activities which center around it; such as, boating, snorkeling, and simply a walk on the beach, as trite as it may sound--it is relaxing. Learning is essential to growing--I'm an avid reader of more than POF profiles. Anything historical intrigues me, as does travel. I am educated, sophisticated, but unpretentious. I would rather travel and do things vs. acquiring objects. Perhaps that is because I already have enough stuff. Do you remember George Carlin's comedy routine about stuff--it's hilarious.
Are you passionate about living life to the fullest? I'd like to make the most out of the next decade--finding time for things that matter-- family, friends, and accomplishing worthwhile goals. I bring an open heart and sincerity. It would be great to partner with someone who can laugh along with me, as we enjoy all the zaniness that life surprises us with. I give more than I take, especially to those I love.
It would be great to meet someone who shares a few mutual interests with me, like travel, the Arts, and perhaps boating. I have a myriad of interests because I am a curious person. I consider myself to be open minded enough to share activities my partner is interested in.
I realize this site is a long shot, but I am trying to remain optimistic. I am capable of compromise. I believe two is better than one--two minds, two hearts, and that love is sometimes elusive, but a precious gift. I am a hopeful romantic, not a hopeless one. There is no perfect partner or perfect relationship; however, an ideal relationship in my eyes would be two best friends supporting each other’s goals, as they share their envisioned life together. It can be magical on many levels when the attraction is mutual! Few things feel as wonderful as being cuddled up in the arms of someone you love. I believe that I have yet to meet the love of my life or soul mate.
Are you attracted to girly-girls? I like being told I'm sexy, so I enjoy being well groomed from head to toe and looking pretty for my man. I find well-groomed men, which includes clean white teeth--a kissable mouth so appealing. If you don't have clean teeth I won't want to kiss you. Yes, there is a reason I am mentioning this, and I am sure you can figure it out. Suffice to say--oral hygiene is important to me.
Would you like to entertain friends/family, go boating, island hop, take a nature walk, treasure hunt, cuddle-read, cuddle some more, explore/travel, enjoy a concert, a show, a movie, admire artwork, enjoy a wine tasting, a sunset, then gaze at the stars together? Ok, I risk sounding too sappy here. I must admit--I still believe in happily ever after. Isn't it comfortable when conversation flows naturally and is engaging, as it does between friends? Communication is key. I dislike conflict; life is too short. I feel it's better to focus on getting the most out of the ride. I would rather compromise than argue any day.
Do you agree that sharing love is essential to living fully? Although well read, I just don't picture myself in a romantic local like Italy, with a good book, vs. a good man. My point--life is best when shared. Yes, I have a playful side. I feel, and act young! I especially like boating, and the way the scent of the ocean air can invigorate and melt away the cares of the day. I love secluded beaches, feeling the wind in my hair and warm sun on my skin.
Do you think that visiting charming small towns like the ones found in Vermont or upstate New York, to be fun? I love Lake George. I find historical places fascinating opportunities to learn. I enjoyed visiting Vizcaya in Miami. Someday, I hope to make it to Biltmore over the Christmas Holidays, which happens to be my favorite time of year.
I find joy in many things, like sharing a romantic dinner together, walking in nature, listening to great music, traveling to a fascinating destination, passionate kisses once you arrive! As far as interests go, mine are diverse. The activity is secondary to the company it is shared with. I can be content in front of the TV if in the arms of the right man. I am attracted to people who are articulate communicators, and a sense of humor is the icing on the cake!
It's a pleasure for me to be the hostess at wonderful parties were great food and merriment abound, and having the people around me that I hold dear. I want to drink life in...Only it is far more pleasurable when one has a partner to share/celebrate life experiences with. Attracted to easy-going, strong, yet nurturing men.
