I am tired of games!!! By this age we should be over the game playing and what I'm looking for someone who has the time and wants to work at a relationship (Yes I know they don't happen overnight!)...... we are best of friends, enjoy each others company, share the ups and downs of life, enjoy our successes together, stand shoulder-to-shoulder with each other when life doesn't go as planned, pillow talk at night whispering secrets meant only for our ears, never taking each other for granted knowing the most important things in life can't be bought but only given. I love the romancing of a relationship and believe it is an integral part in keeping a relationship fresh. I cannot and will not tolerate liars. I was married once and divorced for over 7 years now, not carrying the baggage any longer and not into drama or someone who is still hung up on their ex or cannot get over the anger of how some woman did them wrong. We are not all alike so don't compare to someone else. Not looking for someone to take care of me. I just want someone who wants to find their best friend. I look forward to the possibilities a new relationship brings no matter how far it goes
I am looking for someone who has some of the same kind of interests as I do but we don't have to like all of the same things. My faith is very important to me; I would prefer to meet someone who at least believes there is a higher power but I don't always get up and attend church every Sunday. My interests include fishing, boating, pitching washers is my new favorite fun thing to do,time by the pool, hanging out at home and grilling, spending time with friends and family, going to hear live music, watching a movie or just a quiet evening in. The person I am looking for doesn't have to be perfect because I am not perfect but I do feel I have alot to offer the "right" person. I am HONEST AND TRUSTWORTHY AND DO WHAT I SAY! I have a problem with people who don't follow through or do what they say they will do. I hate being lied to; would much rather hear the truth even if it is not pleasant. Life is short and we only have so much time hear on earth so why not be happy and enjoy life and the people in it.
I am a hopeless romantic who still believes the fairytale is possible. I am very passionate and must have someone who does not have a problem giving and receiving affection. I will be honest and say I have a few pounds to lose and workiing on that by doing Weight Watchers. Most people who are in their 50's don't have the same bodies they had in their 20's and I know my own faults and limitations. I want someone who is accepting, tolerant and wants to be my friend first and foremost and hopefully it grows from there. I own my own home (or at least the mortgage company and I do) and have a career and a dog who is a real joy in my life(if you don't like animals then you won't like me most likely because she is my baby). I am fiercly independent and I am not looking for a man to rescue me or take care of me; I mow my own lawn,take out the trash and have learned to use a few power tools to fix things around my house. I enjoy cooking and have been told I am a good cook. I love to experiment with new recipes.
I love the water so anything near water is always good for me. There is nothing more peaceful than the sound of waves crashing against the shore or watching the sun set or rise over the water. Curling up on the couch during a thunderstorm on a Sunday afternoon together and just listening to the rain can also be peaceful and romantic. Communication is a very important part of any relationship and you have to be willing to work together. I am so over the games so just be yourself and be above all HONEST! We don't all like the same things and that's okay. I don't think that you have to be joined at the hip and everyone needs time to do their own thing but it is nice when you look forward to seeing that person and realizing that you missed them while you were apart. I believe you can appreciate someone without being clingy.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
You can't judge a book by its cover so I would opt for low-key first meeting so no one has to feel pressured. There are always so many expectations and nerves on a first meeting that generally they don't go as you plan but sometimes you just have to listen to that inner voice and give the person another shot. I learned that if you do the rewards are great. A movie is not the answer for a first date because it does not allow for talking and you cannot get to know someone if you don't communicate. I would most likely opt for grabbing coffee or something low key. I am NOT a big drinker so meeting in a bar would not be my first choice of places to meet but will if we agree to that.
