Often we are asked, just what are you looking for in a mate? Of course we all want a nice guy who is funny. But it goes way beyond that. A kind man in my opinion does hold the door for a women. Not just me, any women. He is courteous to the waiter/waitress, he isn't cussing out every driver on the road (unless they REALLY deserve it) and he gives back to the community in his own way.
Funny? Humor is so subjective. But if we talk on the phone for a while and my face hurts after, I know you have the kind of humor I appreciate.
We live in a busy society and it can be hard to find time to devote to another. I run a successful business, my child is grown and now is my time. So I am looking for someone who while busy with a full time job, can spend time getting to know me. I am an independent person and do value my personal space so will never demand every free second you can spare.
The man whom I could see a future with is compassionate, athletic, healthy both mentally and physically, young at heart, responsible, mild mannered, not easily angered and handsome. The list could go on and on. Perhaps he also likes live music, going to museums, seeing plays and listening to a lecture. You continue to expand your knowledge and like to teach me new things too.
In my free time I enjoy taking my dog on walks, hiking, reading and taking care of my home. I enjoy cooking but would hardly consider myself gourmet. I would love to learn some new things, take up tennis (I really like tennis but just haven't been able to master it yet!), take some classes, ect.
I am a pretty low key person, it is very hard to get me angry. I tend to go with the flow, enjoying all the little things around us and making the most of every situation. When I care for someone, I love to do little unexpected things for them. A cute little message, a warm cookie. :)
