Hi! Thanks for stopping by to learn a little about me! Before anything else, I'm a Christian and endeavor to live my faith daily. I'm usually happy and optimistic with an outgoing, kinda bubbly personality. My three daughters are married and have made me a grammy. Divorced for many years and having experienced a number of relationships, I have learned to set boundaries, numbered my priorities and found peace in being single (certainly NOT to be misconstrued as preferring to BE single!!). I'm open, communicative and often think with my heart. Being a touchy-feely person, I embrace the philosophy of needing a minimum of 12 hugs daily simply to survive! My nature is trusting and I've learned the value of discernment in that trust. The romantic in me loves the romance and "courting" of a relationship. Part of me is serious and responsible; there is also a little girl who loves to come out and play. Interests include reading, gardening, walking, dancing, biking, exploring, long conversations and some good snuggle time! I would love to connect with a Christian gentleman who has done some personal growth work, feels compassion and can show it, and has a strong value system. Having respect for one another is so important, as well as having the ability to communicate and compromise. I hope to meet a man who would like to achieve the deepest level of intimacy with his partner. A confident man with a kind and tender heart will definitely catch my attention. I seek an honest, romantic and passionate relationship centered around Christ. A relationship worth having is worth maximum risk and absolute commitment, complete with all the love, tenderness and strength that we hold in our hearts. Love is giving and receiving, patience, forgiveness, freedom, compromise and lots of smiles, hugs and laughter. Love is the shelter in the storm! I look forward to hearing from you and I thank you for your time. God bless each of you and I sincerely hope you find exactly who you're searching for!
