We find ourselves in the same space hoping to connect with someone who enjoys some similar interests and is in the same part of their life. I'm looking to life after raising children who are grown now, and I'm off to a good start. You will find me easy going, very smart, engaging, active, adventurous, curious, tenacious, loving, and fun. I'm a professional career, still working full time and actively engaged in this phase of my life. Looking to spend time with a mature man who has like minds, and is not mean and surly, confident, engaging, a pleasure to spend time with, purposeful, active, responsible,understanding, loving, forgiving and is a protector of my spirit; and will always have his and my best interest in mind. I’ll probably retire in one of the islands or in a warmer state.(Just putting that out there:). Let's enjoy life, do some fun things, travel etc. Live life safely-'til the wheels fall off.’ Long distance may be on the table for the right man if we both can handle it. May I ask you to consider this? Questions are the way to get a better understanding of who we are, so that we can better relate to each other in a "relationship". I would be concerned why someone who is in the process of considering being a part of my life , is not asking any questions or appropriate questions. Manners and respect.
