A little about me...
I have found that my interests continually evolve. I have been in Public life, and have been immersed in being a part of my community. Now I have reached a point where I believe I might find more time to enjoy life with one special someone. Sharing what life has to offer only makes any experience more exciting. I am very low maintenance, and I enjoy giving as well as receiving affection. That affection is not necessarily just physical, it is closeness, holding, listening, talking...........a nearness that is shared intimately with one special person.
I have 5 incredible daughters and grandchildren that never cease to amaze me. I hope someday to share their bond, as well as, possibly adding to those numbers.
It is not my nature to date a number of people just for the experience. I would like to find someone with the traits that I am seeking, for a long term relationship.
I approach life with a great deal of humor and a little sarcasm. I enjoy quit wit and close conversation. In my elected and managerial positions, I did my best to be honorable, credible and decisive. I have an old fashioned sense of respect instilled within my daily activities.
About the one I'm looking for...
Although I came of age in an era of women's lib, I still think a gentleman shows respect by opening doors, for a special woman. I am not threatened by an intelligent woman. In fact, I am actively seeking just that. Sharing a closeness does not mean togetherness 24/7. Each of us would have time to ourselves and a healthy space to exercize our own interests.
You do not have to workout everyday of the week, or look like you are 20. Character comes with age. As does a better understanding of priorities and choices. I would like a woman to be my first and last wonderful choice.
I'd just like to add...
Trust and honesty will be key ingredients in my next relationship. Patience and understanding adds to any kind of conflict resolution. Having the ability to discuss differences in a calm natural tone, and realizing that not all outcomes will be shared. Sometimes it is fine just to agree to disagree!
There should also be time spent away from one another. Time to spend individually that helps maintain one's identity, a night out with the boys,(or her night out with the girls). A separation that subtley brings a yearning to come home. Home to the comforting smile, and warm embrace, of one special woman.
