In any relationship, there has to be a physical attraction before you can develop a deeper bond beyond that. I suppose, unless you are literally blind. Whether it’s the shape of the body, the type of hair, the way the corner of the mouth turns up in a smile or the twinkle in the eye. I’m not immune to physical factors, just like I’m sure you aren’t either. I know when I see a face whether I feel attracted or not. So do you. I’m hoping that it won’t stop with physical attributes alone. I’m willing to look beyond first impressions to listen to your dreams and hopes; to hear about your walk with God.
I've been married for a total of 29 1/2 years. My first husband was 12 years older than me and my second was a year younger. From now on, you have to have been born no more than five years before me, and you have to be past any and all midlife crisis lurking over your head. I refuse to be caught up in a midlife crisis again! lol
I've heard every line, and this girl isn't falling for any of them, anymore. I want a relationship where the guy I love, is head over heels in love with me, too. I want to have a real bond with someone who shares the same values, who wants to spend time with me, not his bachelor buddies, or perched in front of the TV watching sports, news, or reality TV full time.
(br (span="" style="background-color:yellow;")/)I(/span) love mid-century modern design. Think blonde or teak furniture, straight lines, and aqua and blue/green colors. Almost all my furniture is mid-century and/or family heirlooms. It's a style that can be just as relative today as it was then. My favorite magazine is Atomic Ranch. My favorite artists are Kandinski and Charley Harper. But I like a lot of different types of art, sculpture, paintings, multi-media, etc.
I don't like country music, or any form of it either. Like alternative country, grassroots country, country and western, classic country, folk country, etc., etc., etc. I also don't like hip-hop, rap, new wave, punk, or any music that's vulgar and malicious.
I don't like spicy food! Period. No, you cannot persuade me to try it, I won't like it. I am physically allergic to black pepper. I love raspberries, peaches, dark, dark chocolate. My favorite has sea salt in it. I don't eat mushrooms, ALL melons or bananas! Yuk! I won't force you to try my favorites either. I hate the smell of fish and seafood. It makes me want to hurl, but I love to smell the barbecue grilling, the fresh taste of corn on the cob and fried okra. I may be a Nutmegger, but my mom is from the South, so I love grits, too, with butter and salt, no sugar and cream on grits! I love cream of wheat, to make granola, brownies, and pancakes. I make THE BEST pancakes ever!
I have a real genuine laugh, and I'm NOT afraid to use it! I hate phony people. Okay, PC: I hate it when people act like phonies. Be real. You're not fooling anyone but yourself.
I lived in Alaska for about 3 years. I love the state, and I'm still a legal resident as I am a full-time student. I just returned from an extra long weekend in Wasilla/Anchorage. It was breathtakingly beautiful with unbelievably crisp, cool air to breathe! Just like I remembered. style="font-weight:bold;")I prefer cooler climates with NO humidity! That's one reason I want to live in Alaska. (Specifically Anchorage) I hate being hot and sweaty!
I like sweater weather, wearing hats, a guy in a suit and tie, and relaxed time, ="font-weight:bold;")together. I'm a hopeless romantic and I wear my heart on my sleeve.
Now I know that there is no way you know enough about me to know whether or not we might be friends or more, and there's only one way to find out. Write to me. And ask some more questions. I'd be happy to answer them the best I can.
