I am a very down to earth person. Family and friends are very important. I have been a widow for 9 years and I realized that I miss having a special person in my life. I have a lot of love to give when the right man comes alone. I am a caring, loving person. I want to be treated with respect and will give respect in return. I have raised a wonderful daughter and she is now on her own. It is time for me to get back to the business of living and it would be nice to have someone to share all of lives ups as well as the downs. I am a very affectionate person and I want to feel that from the man that I am with. Holding hands to me is the nices way to say I want to be with you and have you by myside. So, if you think your hand will fit mine, I would love to hear from you.
