A little about me...
We've learned that life is oh so short... and the importance of enjoying the moment., and we know that it's so much more enjoyable with a special friend of the opposite sex! I'm a warm, affectionate, supportive woman who tunes into others and gives a lot to those who are good to me. I'm looking for togetherness with a man I admire and truly like--laughing, talking, sharing experiences and cuddling but probably not marriage. I'm an educator who loves children (it's their enthusiasm, openness and positive energy that bring me pleasure), and I feel lucky to still work with them, now on a part time basis. I love dogs (having just lost my dear old fellow, am looking), the beauty of the natural world and like so many being by, on or in the water. I do mean "in and on!" I swim regularly and still put my kayak in the waters of Cape Cod. I also love the arts and was a serious painter who sold her work but now I dabble simply trying to capture nature's beauty in paint. Going into New York is a real pleasure, and I maintain a two-seat subscription to the NY Philharmonic. Most music gives me great pleasure. I read a great deal and emerged from a long search to understand life as a scientifically oriented, secular humanist.
About the one I'm looking for...
The man I'm seeking is smart and kind, is open and able to express his feelings. He's a thinker who reads to learn, and wants to live fully. There are places he wants to visit and experiences he wants to have. In spite of the fact that he, like all of us, has experienced loss and disappointment, he's able to again care deeply for his special lady friend. His interests overlap some of mine, but we have our own friends, family and lives so the fact that I love opera, and he doesn't and that he loves going to big sporting events, and I don't is not a big deal. We enrich each others lives by being there for one another but also by introducing each other to new interests. I'd actually find pleasure in watching sports events on TV with him because of his enthusiasm. Hopefully, by this time in life he and I have learned to relax about differences and appreciate the spirit of the person. Having our own space makes that so much easier! Because I have become (as suggested above) a left-leaning, non-religious person, a deeply religious, conservative man and I would not be comfortable together.
I'd just like to add...
I do believe that falling in love is still possible for mature adults like ourselves! If you still have that kind of positive outlook, i'd love to hear from you.
