I am a happy, hopeful and optimistic person, well most of the time anyway. I like to laugh, even at myself when necessary! I value true and honest communication, and share my feelings easily. I consider myself to be a fantastic listener who is always interested in what others have to say.
My 25 year marriage is over, and instead of being devastated, I've decided to be excited by the possibilities that lay ahead. I still believe that life is better when shared with someone special, and I hope to find that someone
For me to consider you special you must be honest, a good communicator, have a sense of humour, and like to have fun! I would also want my future partner to be able and willing to be my best friend, to have my back, and to make me feel special in the little things you do. I dont need grand gestures, just be able to express what we mean to each other.
I find that as I get older, (and yikes, 50 will be here soon :-))I am less afraid to take a risk and feel strongly that since we only get one life to live, it's best to live it to the fullest. For me, this means deeper connections with the important people in my life, and being open to new experiences. It also means putting myself out there on a dating site and risk making a fool of myself on a date! Dating is so much different these days!
I love boating, mostly on lakes, and being surrounded by water in any form. Swimming in the ocean, a pool, the lake, a river, a hot tub, the mikveh(!)....all feed my soul. I love to travel when the opportunity is there, and I love being outdoors. There are so many activities and interests I enjoy and would love to share with the right person. There are also many experiences I have yet to try have but am eager to.
I have 1300 characters left to use in this narrative, but I prefer to leave some things unsaid to be discovered as we get to know each other.
I am a good person, mostly normal, and hopefully like you, just want someone to share life's blessings and challenges with.
