"The heart will break, yet brokenly live on."
My subscription ends Feb. 18, 2013
I have been widowed for 6 years and have packed my past neatly into a suitcase and traded that baggage in for peace of mind. I have decided that although I am very comfortable with being alone, I am missing a social life and someone with which to share it. I am emotionally stable and very self-sufficient so if you are looking for a needy lady, it is not me. If on the other hand you are searching for a basically happy, affectionate person with a lot to offer, then read on.
I can tell you that if we are a couple, you will receive from me-silliness, seriousness, companionship, loyalty, honesty (sometimes blunt honesty), friendship, intelligent conversation, laughter, tears, playfulness, romance and possibly even love. What do I consider romantic-a walk on the beach when the moon is dancing on the water and even though it is night there is a light in your eyes and your heart skips a beat because we’re together - sharing wine and intimate conversation by a crackling fire whose flames dance to the rhythm of the sap sizzling in the burning logs and not being sure if my face is flushed from the fire or from your touch - an automobile ride on a cool summer night with all the windows down, bare feet up on the dash and head resting on your shoulder as we cut through the night as one and take in the sounds and scents of the evening- sneaking a kiss or flashing a smile your way then wiping a drop of perspiration from your brow while working on a project together - catching sight of each other across a crowded room and both of us knowing what the other is thinking by the telltale grin - having my dress zipped up for me or my necklace hooked by you as your fingers lightly touch my skin (it sends chills down my spine) - a spontaneous hug, just because - a snowball fight culminating in both of us falling into each others arms in the snow-I could go on forever. There is the possibility of romance all around us.
As for you, I would hope that you are someone who has his own ideas and at the same time can respect the ideas of others. I am looking for a self-confident (not arrogant) man to share the social life I am ready to resume and if all the stars align, possibly sharing my personal life as well. Are you the man that would catch my attention? If so, you must respect all life. You cannot be cruel or disrespectful to others or animals and must have a caring/giving disposition. You will be funny and be able to laugh at yourself and make me laugh. Are you still with me? You will be patient, thoughtful, empathetic, kind and considerate. All these things will come naturally to you, they will be a part of who you are. You will be a man who takes care of himself and respects his own body. You will be financially stable. You will be sensual which is different than sexual and you will KNOW the difference. On top of all this, you will have a touch of “bad boy” added just for seasoning. Ultimately in the quiet of the evening and at the end of my life, I need to be able to look at you, take your hand in mine and tell you how happy I am that I have grown old with you. Am I asking for the impossible? I hope not but if you are an elusive creature, I shall die searching for you.
I am honest and will tell it like it is so you will always know where you stand with me, no guessing-no games. At 65 years of age I won’t waste time doing that. Life is too precious.I am a very gentle person and have a tendency to empathize with others. I love spending time with someone I care about but I MUST have my private time to do the things that rejuvenate me. I am not looking for an instant relationship but a friendship that may or may not grow into something more. I am willing to make the effort to understand you and your ideas, wants, needs, likes, dislikes etc. I would hope for the same in return. Come spoil me and be spoiled in return.
If I haven't frightened you off, lets talk.
