A little about me...
I am a widow who looks and acts years younger and having lost the love of my life I have learned to dodge those curve balls quite well. Having ended a long term relationship last year I learned that without trust and expressing your feelings that relationship will not survive or maybe we just gave up trying.
I have three children who keep me grounded and two beautiful grandchildren who melt my heart. I am very sociable and will strike up a conversation with anyone. I am romantic, a great listener, self assured, witty, compromising and playful. I have a great circle of friends and we enjoy doing activities such as day trips, weekend getaways, dancing, wine festivals, shopping, dining and just getting together. I enjoy traveling and discovering quaint new places. My main passion is dancing (free style), the sun and beach, walking, and family gatherings. I am very passionate and a hopeless romantic--I cry at sad movies and love happy endings. I enjoy the outdoors and summertime--gardening, tanning, cookouts, going to or watching sporting events, and concerts.
About the one I'm looking for...
What I want is a man who challenges me in a good way, someone who works to support each other and appreciates each others strengths and weaknesses, and can be my best friend. A man who will treat me as a priority instead of an option. While it's great to have mutual interests I am open to experiencing new avenues. I try to keep physically fit and while I don't need someone who's a gym rat I would prefer you are in shape (don't tell me you gained a few pounds and when we meet it's like 50 come on now!) Someone who enjoys traveling; who is very passionate and affectionate, socially active, adventurous, a gentleman; surprises me by calling just to say he's thinking of me. A man who always makes me laugh, and is emotionally and financially stable. Communication is a big factor for me--I need a man who can communicate and express his thoughts and feelings, if I make you mad tell me and if "we can't make it right" then walk away and let me love again, if I excite you tell me. Someone who makes my heart skip a beat the moment our eyes meet and I feel that slow fire burn--I know sounds like a "movie line" but it's what I'm looking for...the fairy tale! The curtain is about to rise in the last act..Who will be my leading man?
I'd just like to add...
I love seafood, wine, my kids and grandchildren, morning coffee, romantic movies and comedies, staying socially active but just as content staying home and watching a movie, walking, my dog Maddy, the sun and beach, Jazz, Motown, today's music, blues, football, music and wine festivals, listening to live bands, all the seasons except winter, pumpkin lattes, rainbows, Christmas, the color pink and burgundy.
I don't want a phone buddy, friend w/benefits, long distance relationship or a man with baggage...I simply want a relationship, a man to cuddle with at night, enjoy a glass of wine at the end of the day, and just talk and much more...is that too much to ask for?
