A little about me...
I care a lot about the state of the world, about understanding people. Think I'm warm, bright, honest, youthful, serious and funny. Pretty idealistic but very fair. In some situations I'm very outgoing, but I prefer good conversation with one person or a small group to large gourps and big parties. I've always been pretty much of a homebody and don't mind being alone, but also enjoy doing things with someone who's interesting and fun. I believe that working on a relationship that is already basically a good one can be a wonderful experience.
I checked off "divorced", the closest category that seems to fit; my former husband died several years ago.
About the one I'm looking for...
For me, as probably for most people, honesty, kindness, humor, intelligence and emotional health are very important. Most of all, I value authenticity. I take good care of myself physically and would like to meet someone who does the same.
I think that a real man is one who treats a woman with consideration and respect, seeing that not as a sign of weakness, but of strength, and I greatly appreciate a man who treats me that way.
What turns me off? Manipulativeness, egotism, excessive sarcasm, cruelty in any form.
I'd just like to add...
Should say that I'm not really into either receiving or sending "flirts".

My Top Interests:
I love to read (couldn't find this category anywhere else.) Recently finished "Abide With Me" by Elizabeth Strout; loved it for its humanity and compassion.
Religion and Spirituality
If I had to pinpoint something here, I'd probably say that I'm most fascinated by the interaction between psychological and spiritual development.
Family and Friends
Have four terrific grandsons who live locally. For all of them, life is baseball. Fortunately for Grandma, I like baseball and am a Washington Nationals fanatic. Should also add to "Interests" that I am something of a political junkie. Like everyone else, I'm fed up with the bunch of them but still enjoy watching how personal psychology affects political behavior.
