About the one I'm looking for...
Someone who generally shares my faith, lifestyle, and views. I respect a woman with a mind of her own, yet who renders the same respect to me and others. Someone who looks naturally nice on the outside, with a beautiful heart/mind on the inside. One who loves learning, loves people, loves the natural creation. Someone happy, upbeat; intellectually and physically active. Someone young and wild enough to, for example, ride bikes with me across the USA, if we should so choose. Industrious, but not materialistic. One who loves nature, gardens and simple natural, healthful living. One who speaks kindly and wisely. A Proverbs 31 lady would be just fine. (If you are one, you will likely know what I mean.)
I am not desperate. I will patiently wait for the right lady to cross my path. (Life is too short and precious to invite trouble we don't need.)
I do not rule out a lady with a child/children.
I'm looking for someone unique and special who can cheerfully stand by my side as my queen--for life!
I will love, nurture, support and encourage the right person, but she must naturally have and seek the qualities described. I don't seek to control or create this person. She will be God's creation.
I'd just like to add...
I don't play around; I'm not into breaking hearts or messing up lives. I'm serious with my approach to life and relationships. I believe in having a solid friendship before moving on to more serious commitment. I love sharing sweet affection. I value honesty and openness. I like working (and playing) together as much as practical with my lady.
Friendship requires open, non-judgmental communication. It also requires time.
Honestly, I have too many things calling for my attention, but I wish to dedicate some time on a regular basis to exploring new friendships, with the idea of something more developing. If you like my profile, don't be afraid to contact me. I won't be offended. :) I am open for discussion of any topic on your mind.
Practical consideration: At my age and station in life, I'm pretty rooted in Hawaii. Anyone who would consider joining lives with me, would most likely need to be free to relocate....
May you be blessed with the desires of your heart!
