Hi, if you are reading this, you are out there looking around for a possible friend, companion, partner, or mate. I have filled several of these out, to be honest, and I don't think I have found the magic words, except to say, that I am discovering that my "ideal" man is never going to be found and that is okay with me. I don't want to find an ideal man, I want to find a real one. And, by saying this, I mean a man who is on his spiritual path to find the Lord. I mean a man who is capable of loving a woman and making a home together. . . of honoring the commitment the two make together. I am told that I am compassionate and loyal. I am thoughtful and quiet at times, love nature and my dachshunds, and, of course, my three grown children. My love for the Lord is deep and He is first. I want to be in a relationship in which His work is also first. I guess you are getting the picture. I AM a hopeless romantic. It's true. I feel gratitude for the opportunity possibly to meet a mate. But, I am happy as I am where I am. I am hoping for something wonderful. . . and, my faith tells me to hold fast in hope and believe.
