A little about me...
I am a widow who looks and acts years younger and who lost the love of my life but I have learned to dodge those curve balls quite well. Having ended a long term relationship I've learned that without trust and communication that relationship will not last or maybe we both just gave up trying.
I have three children who keep me grounded and three beautiful grandchildren who melt my heart.
As for me, I am very sociable and will strike up a conversation with anyone. I am affectionate, sensual, witty, compromising, and a great listener. I love to dance....in the kitchen, in the bedroom, on the dance floor...just dance! I love the outdoors in warm weather, keeping physically fit by walking, bike riding and dancing. I enjoy a variety of activities such as weekend getaways, day trips, candlelit dinners, movies, festivals and concerts, love to watch football, tanning at the beach with the sand between my toes and the sun on my face watching the waves along the shore, gardening, family and friend gatherings. I can be comfortable wearing jeans or a black dress, enjoying a play at the Kennedy Center or dancing at one of the local hangouts.
I am looking to move to South Carolina in the next few years...tired of the cold and snow.
About the one I'm looking for...
At this stage in my life I am looking for a man I can share the next journey with and explore new adventures and experiences along with life's pleasures. I want to be a priority and not an option. I enjoy having a man in my life to share my morning coffee, just hear each others heartbeat in the middle of the night as we hold each other (no I'm not silly just real), and keeps me laughing. I miss and need to find that slow fire burn--when we touch, when our eyes meet. I'm searching for my best friend, someone affectionate, who challenges me in a good way, easy going, who is socially active, emotionally and financially stable, verbally communicates his feelings--if I make you upset let's talk and if "we can't make it right" then walk away and let me love again, if I excite you tell me, call just to say you're thinking of me. And while you don't have to be a gym rat I'd prefer you to be somewhat fit (don't tell me you gained a few pounds and when we meet it's like 50).
Please don't waste my time if you're looking for dating, a travel companion or friend w/benefits only...I simply want a long term relationship who hopefully will be the last love of my life!
I'd just like to add...
Our first date should be casual meeting for lunch/dinner and/or drinks but I am open to suggestions.
