I am looking for a serious relationship, someone who physically and emotionally takes care of herself. She will describe herself as fit, slender, slim, athletic, petite, etc. , which is what I think is attractive. Yes, it helps to be friends first, but I have plenty of friends. I am looking for just one special lady who is not afraid to be a woman and who wants to be treated like a lady. She would like someone who is old fashion and chivalrous, but very open-minded to try new things. I prefer to open doors, hold chairs, etc. , because that is how I was taught. Mama didn't raise no dummy!!! I am willing to work very hard to our relationship a positive example for others. A physical relationship is easy, it is the emotional, spiritual, cerebral, and compassionate aspect which is elusive. What I've learned from my past relationships is so much that I could not do it justice in this section except to say, the 12 words the pastor of my church has taught me, which can solve just about any situation . I am sorry, I was wrong, I love you, please forgive me.
