My closest friends describe me as shy at first but very friendly and straightforward ,Widowed with a son..My main goals in life are to be with the right man for me. To me, romance means a man that has what is called the old fashion values, opening doors for women, sending flowers for no apparent reason but to say that he was thinking of you or sending flowers on holidays that flowers are just about tradition (i.e valentines day, anniversaries). A man that shares his feelings (saying I Love You), you get the idea.I am a pretty centered person, happy with myself, but believe there is always room for growth. My friends tell me I am a "go-getter" type of person. I look at the world from a "glass half full" perspective and always try to find the good in everyone. I am told that I am intelligent, funny and fun to be around. I am looking for a healthy adult relationship. I deserve that. I am looking for someone who doesn't play games. I am a big believer in telling it like it is, except if it would hurt someone. I am interested in someone who has the time to devote to a relationship or who will at least try to make the time, as I would.
