Today marks the first anniversary of my wonderful husband’s death. He died on January 15, 2012 after fighting esophagus cancer for almost 6 years. The last 3 years of my husband’s life I was practically a 24 hour caregiver.
Before he passed he told all the kids, relatives, and close friends he did not want me staying home alone after he was gone. He had been there, done that when his first wife died. He wanted me to find happiness again.
We had a great marriage. WE MET ON A DATING SITE and dated for three years. For the first 1 1/2 years he was living in New York and I lived in Maryland before he asked me to move in with him. (So long distance relations can work if you make the effort.)
A few months, after his death I started dating. Shortly afterwards I met a wonderful man who was a Canadian citizen, but spent some time in the U.S. during the winter months. We slowly started dating and life for me, to my surprise, became happy and bright again.
We dated for several months both in the U.S. and Canada. He had also lost his wife, but about 3 years earlier. And sadly, at that time, I don't think either of us was ready for a full-time relationship. As the saying goes, "timing is everything”
The best thing for me that I got out of that relationship was it showed me I could truly care for someone again! And by putting myself “out there," this is what I hope to accomplish, but this time forever.
Now, a little about me: I am very easy going, have always been a good devoted trusting friend. I'm romantic. I love holding hands and exchanging kisses whenever the mood hit us. I am retired, though I still have a small part-time business where I teach seniors how to use their computers. I do not do it for the money, but for the pleasure of seeing their lives open up to a new world. I work if and when I want to... not tied down to a schedule.
I am looking for a man that is HONEST, PHYSICALLY FIT, FINANCIALLY SECURE (LIKE I AM), INTELLIGENT, EDUCATED AND FUN (not a couch potato). Also, good looking for his age would be a bonus. If you ask me my age it will ALWAYS be 25 as I refuse to ever be older.
I enjoy all sorts of activities so I am sure we will find plenty of things to do. I have been called classy by many, yet not afraid to get my hands dirty. In fact I love to garden.
I have a strong sense of family and believe a relationship should be built on trust, respect, mutual goals, chemistry (both mental and physical) and on acceptance of whom the other person is without trying to change him.
So the above is ME. No phony words to impress anyone reading this. If what you read appeals to you, I hope you will message me.
Thank you for taking the time to read the above. I don't think in reality you will be disappointed.
