About me...... I am a widowed and have two grown children, both of whom are married. I am now at a point in my life where I am ready to put myself back out there and look for a new relationship.
I am looking for a partner that shares my core values of honesty, integrity, loyalty, and mutual respect. I'm looking for a long-term relationship, hopefully marriage someday. However, I am always open to new friendships!
I am a quiet, confident individual who values a woman who is comfortable with herself first and foremost. I am a great listener and can carry on a conversation on most topics. I am faithful to the "one" I am with.
Although I am may seem quiet, at least at first, it is because I am paying attention to you. I listen closely to what you have to say and I will respect your opinion on whatever we happen to be discussing. Communication in any relationship is very, very important. I will always tell you the truth, and I will never intentionally cause you any hurt, pain, or disappointment.
I try to follow a healthy lifestyle which includes being active outside as well inside. I have a very calm temper and prefer to avoid conflicts. In a relationships I treasure loyalty, honesty and respect. I never try to be someone else, I am who I am. My life has made me who I am, and I am proud of being this person. I am kind and have a warm heart. I am purposeful and know what I want. I am an easy going person. I like to smile and to laugh and to make people happy. No matter what happens in life I always try and remain upbeat and positive.
I love intimate candlelit dinners, soft music, slow dancing, walking hand-in-hand, be it a comfortable stroll along the river or strolling on the beach on a tropical get-a-way. We would be each other's biggest fans as we travel through this thing called life.
I enjoy holding hands in public and if the mood hits, to not worry who is looking if we share a kiss in public. I am kind, affectionate, romantic, and love dogs, although I don't have one at the moment.
I like to travel and explore new places and old. I like to go for walks, work out, as well as relax with friends and family.
I enjoy blues, rock and some country music.
As for hobbies, I like to play guitar (learning anyway), computers, reading, listening to audio-books, driving fishing golf, exercising and barbecuing.
I also like to keep my mind active by taking on-line courses as well as attending seminars.
I enjoy shopping and of course cheering on the Roughriders.
About the person I hope to find.....
I hope to find someone with plenty of love to give, who is "down-to-earth" and humble, and has plenty of self respect. I want a woman who is into the idea of a partnership, as we are equals.
You are a kind, considerate woman who knows the value of a good conversation, good food and good company. You have high self-esteem and you don't need a man to fawn over you but rather challenge you to become a better person. You also work hard but are able to change gears and have some fun when it's time to let go. You desire a relationship with that one special person that will treat you with love and consideration but above all respect. You value your independence and also reciprocate by giving your partner the space that's needed to keep theirs.
