A little about me...
I am a spontaneous person, who is also someone who plans. Being predictably unpredictable is one of my charms! Simple things seem to bring the most pleasure. I'm not usually in the midst of the pack, but on the journey that's uniquely my own. I appreciate the slower pace. I am not all things to all people. What I am is true to myself now. True and faithful to my friends and family and I will be true to the one love in my life. I stand up for principles and get fussy when I'm tired. I love to laugh and share intimate thoughts and emotions. I've been independent and self-sufficient for decades, but love doing projects and chores with someone as well as playing.
About the one I'm looking for...
My man will want to protect me because he will know I'm worth protecting. He will share his smiles, his silliness, his fears, and his past with me. He will know his heart is safe with me; and I need to know mine is safe with him. My man will want no less than an honest, monogamous, intimate relationship with me. We will need to be free to talk, ask questions, compromise, and above all be faithful and truthful. The relationship will not be all about me...nor will it be all about you...it must be all about us. I would never want to hurt my man, and I need to know it would be inconceivable for him to hurt me physically or emotionally. People usually want to make an outstanding first impression. Most of the photos I see here, the men are not smiling. I have no desire to be with someone who doesn't smile at me. I will not respond to a profile that has no photo, or to a person who makes no effort to share anything about himself on his profile or in a message sent, or to one of those shallow flirts or icons. I'm sure there are others who will.
I'd just like to add...
With the right man, anything is possible. What I want is not set in stone, because what I desire right now has only me in the equation. My preference is for a clean-shaven man, but that is not an absolute. I blend well with a man who is confident but not arrogant. I will not tolerate being an after thought, but I don't need to be the center of attention. Divorce was my choice. I am not desperate, dependent, or destitute. I am a one-on-one type of person who will nurture a relationship as long as my partner also wants to have a mutually fulfilling bond. Being there to cook your meals and clean your house and be a spectator of your life does not describe my idea of a fulfilling relationship. You can hire all that out. I want a relationship where both partners strive to bring the best out of each other, be there with a loving heart when things go upside down, and go hand-in-hand into tomorrow.
