OK - I am not ostentatious at all, what you see is what you get! I have a tall, slender build and at 5Ə" tall, weight is not a problem, although I find it increasingly more difficult to remain toned. My photo represents my current look. I am young for my age, in both appearance and attitude, and I prefer someone similar. As shallow as it might sound, I generally prefer the look and physique of younger men. That has no sexual implications as I am not interested in a sexual relationship, I identify as being asexual. I do have an interest in non-sexual intimacy like hugs, kisses, holding hands, snuggling, with someone whom I am attracted to in a relationship. I retired from the United States Air Force and now have a small business. I travel as often as my budget will allow. Words that would describe me include: Christian, intelligent, goal-directed, kind-hearted, sincere, compassionate, romantic, playful, eclectic, perspicacious, adventurous, optimistic, down-to-earth, classy, candid and intuitive; Myers-Briggs would describe me as an ISFJ. Many loves in my life and indispensable would be Jesus Christ, my family, friends, and pets. I love animals, and currently have 4 lovable kitties--Buster, Patches, Sheela, and Tiger. Other loves would include mountains, oceans, candlelight, firelight, moonlight, and music. . . Pastimes and pleasures that bring me joy would include outdoors activities like gardening, camping, fishing, hiking, long moonlight walks with a romantic guy, canoeing, touring state and national parks. . . add to that--traveling/sightseeing, weekend getaways, festivals, dining out and experiencing new places and cuisine. Other favorites would include movies, chic flicks of course being my favorite, something that churns emotions, with romance dramas or romance comedy topping the list. But, I also enjoy most good drama, thrillers, comedy, mystery or action films, with science fiction being my least favorite. Television is a rarity for me, but among my favorite channels would be Lifetime, FOX News, Discovery, and the History Channel. I enjoy the performing arts, theater, symphony, opera, ballet, and concerts. I also enjoy things like a good book in front of the fireplace on a rainy day, a walk in the woods while the snow is falling on a winter day, board games, bowling, occasional sporting events like professional football or baseball. My favorite sport to watch is figure skating. I'm not a stranger to domestic skills. . . not only do I enjoy cooking, but I am a fairly good cook, an avid gardner, and I will tackle a home improvement project. . . I'm always willing to invite that special guy that has his own toolbelt :) Yardwork. . . I'll mow, you weedeat! The Special Guy I'm In Search Of. . . He would be an attractive guy, ideally with a look of youth that evidences his healthy lifestyle. Idealistically speaking, the typical build I am attracted to is tall with broad shoulders and a trim waistline. Important to me is a guy who shares my Christian values and someone who knows how to respect women. He would pray with me, read and study the Bible and have the same love and fear of God that would keep us both on the narrow path of life. He would be a NONSMOKER and his drinking habits would be limited to responsibile social drinking. I hope to find a guy that shares my interests and isn't afraid to try new things in life, someone who longs to live near a city, but in a country home outside the city, and travel the world. His personality would include traits similar to mine in that he would be non-judgemental, open-minded, caring, sincere, trustworthy, faithful and affectionate in non-sexual ways like hugs, gentle kisses, cuddling and holding hands. I'm not interested in a sexual relationship at any point, but I do want romance--he would be the type of guy that would not be afraid to hold my hand in public, and realize the importance of little things like flowers for no special reason, a candlelight dinner, an occasional call during the day just to say I'm thinking about you. He would be strong in character and someone whom I could always rely on and know that he would be there for me. He would be a good communicator, and like me, would realize that most hurdles in a relationship can be overcome with trust in Christ along with positive attitude, compromise, and a willingness to listen and understand from a perspective other than his own at times. I want the old fashioned romance that our grandparents might have shared. I would never have to doubt that I was number one in his life or his heart, nor would he ever have any doubt that he was number one in my life and heart. I want to wind down the day with a guy that can snuggle up to me and together we can melt the daily chaos into manageable mountains, dividing the burdens and multiplying the joys. Are there any guys left that understand the importance of ending a day with quiet pillow talk and a gentle kiss goodnight? Wherefore art thou? I would a appreciate a CURRENT photo, not your high school yearbook photo.
