I am a lover of life, easy-going, fun-loving, adventurous, witty, resourceful, youthful, spiritual, emotionally stable, drama free, and have a healthy sense of humor ... I believe that mutual love, respect, trust and a spiritual connection are paramount in a fulfilling long-term relationship.
I love the beach and hope to retire there waking to the sound of the waves and the sea gulls. I am also a lighthouse enthusiast ... when traveling I will find the nearest lighthouse to visit. My favorite is Pigeon Point just up the coast from Santa Cruz less than an hour away ... then on to Half Moon Bay and beyond.
I've been divorced for 25 years in which time I dedicated much of my time to raising my lovely daughter who is now a mom herself. Dating was difficult when she was young but now I have no excuse!! She worries I will spend the rest of my life alone, and although I am very comfortable alone ... with my career, my dogs, my hobbies, and great friends ...I am on this site because I would enjoy a compatible companion to share the adventure of the next 50+ years of life with ... shared joy is doubled and shared difficulties are cut in half. So ... no expectations, just one-day-at-a-time and see what develops.
What I'm looking for ... someone close to my age, who has had life experiences that they have grown from. Someone who is easy-going, health conscious, spiritual, fun-loving, has a great sense of humor, emotionally stable, and is spiritually connected!! I prefer someone who has had the experience of the unconditional love we learn from having and raising children. If you are currently married (even separated) please don't respond to my ad ... I am not interested in rebounds and desire someone who has cut the ties, has taken the time to heal, and knows how to be on their own ... someone comfortable with their own company (not needy or desperate). Also... I am 25 years in recovery ... and prefer not to be with a partner who drinks on a regular basis or in excess, this would a conflict of interest for both of us.
