Do you enjoy relaxing weekends at home, friends over for dinner with beautiful food, wonderful wine, talking and laughing, great family get togethers? Do you have that itch for wanderlust and adventure - that desire to get away from time to time? Doyou enjoy home cooking and quiet evenings but also an upscale evening or a trip to some exciting destination? Are you affectionate and passionate about your passions whether it be love or the other things you enjoy? I have two sons: a 21 year old who is on his own now and an 11 year old whom I have half of the time. So I have good reason for having a good home life and also the free time to pursue the things I love doing and for spending time with someone very special.
I hope to meet someone who is articulate, intelligent, has travelled and is well-educated (and sometimes well-educated is just a plethera of Life Experience. . . not a stellar university). His relationship with Jesus will be paramount to him. I love to laugh and enjoy being around a man with a great sense of humor who is thoughtful and kind. I believe respect, honesty, and shared interests are essential. I would hope to have the ability to be strong when he needs my strength and to be able to lean on him when I am weak. Share coffee in the morning and talk about our day while we prepare dinner together. Be a help to each other rather than a hinderance. I am old fashioned and like fairly traditional roles between men and women. I love being a woman and being treated like a woman. And there is nothing more appealing to me than a very masculine man who is incurably charming. More important though, is strong committment. Life is difficult sometimes and in a relationship there are hills and valleys. A strong commitment is necessary to take each other through those tough times when you would really just rather be alone or when the grass suddenly looks greener on the other side of the fence. I am willing to ride out the difficult times and find incredible joy in the good times. Communication and compassion are essential. I've learned that its NOT all about me. I've also learned we cannot be responsible for each other's happiness. What a heavy responsibility to place on someone else. Rather, each of us are responsible for our own happiness and can bring that attitude and positive energy into the relationship.
And above all, it is a man who knows God that will win my heart.
