I am looking for a man I can live the rest of my life with in peace and harmony. If you're into playing head games or the like, please, pass me by. Been there, done that, won't do it again! I'm a 55 year old woman who would love to meet my best friend. Someone who I could spend the rest of my life with, comfortably in his arms. I guess I'm old fashioned, don't have to be the one in charge, but would like my opinion heard. I want what my parents have. They are in their 80's and still walk together hand in hand. They can still have spirited discussions because they aren't carbon copies of each other, they think independantly, but love each other unconditionally. Now they care for and about each other. Our roles have somewhat reversed because now they come to me if they are worried about the other. I miss seeing them nearly every day but count my blessings that I still have them! Many of my age do not. I tell them often that I appreciate them and love them. They don't worry about me so much any more because they are more aware than ever that my head is screwed on right-those are my Mom's words. My Dad just says the I'm a good kid and will always be the baby of the family. That's ok, I can fill those shoes! I've often told them that it's kind of their fault that mine and my sister's marriages didn't work. We rarely saw them arguing, so when it happened with us, we didn't know that it was ok. Now we all see them argue, but we see them deal with it. Now she knows they probably should have showed more of it, but it wasn't like that in the 50's and 60's. It's ok, I know what a good relationship looks like and I want that for me and won't settle for less. They respect each other and treasure the time they have together. They cheer for the Red Sox together and wake each other up when they fall asleep during a good game! They can spend time together, without speaking a word and can just look at each other and smile and know. . . . just know. THAT is what I want for myself. I love crafting so that's what you'll find me doing when I'm alone. I love gardening and taking walks outside. Of course, in the winter, that's not quite so easy, so having a partner for those walks keeps it interesting. My desire is to find my best friend. Someone who likes to talk and share his life with that special someone. Are you out there?He will be easy going, but a great friend. One who likes to and can talk about things that are important to him as well as things important to me, even if those topics aren't the same. I'm looking for the man who is looking for me. I know we'll find each other, maybe already have. My heart will know because it will beat in tune with his, then I'll know. Baggage, yes I've got some, but who doesn't? Anyone who doesn't have baggage as is in their 50's must be a pretty boring person! I've got baggage, but what you do with it is the key! I've come home with some pretty heavy bags, but I've opened it, taken out the bad and disposed of it, ( after learning some lessons!) I took out the good things and tuck them away. My bags are now empty and in the back of the closet waiting for my next trip!
