I am a real down to earth mature woman who appreciates life and good companionship to share it with. I admire old fashion mature gentleman qualities. That's so special. I have many interests. I enjoy swimming at least once a week, long walks in the park appreciating nature, some hiking, traveling, sight seeing, history, home decorating, gardening, beading, long drives on sunny days, the beach, looking at the ocean, art, antiques, movies, theater, dining out or just being home enjoying a quiet evening. I love to communicate. It is very important. Listening is also important as well. I am intelligent and I know what I want. I have a good sense of humor and I love to laugh. Through life experiences, my faith and spiritual life have grown and still maturing with wisdom being gathered along the way. I enjoy a personal relationship with the Lord. It is important and it keeps me grounded every day. I am thankful for life and being able to experience and learn from it every day. I am not perfect, no one is but I appreciate that I am real with no pretenses. I believe a great friendship is the prerequisite to a great life long relationship. . . yes, best friends forever!
