Shy but outgoing once I'm comfortable. Love my 6 Grandchildren and do lots with them. I am widowed and the only member of the LDS Church in my family. Love to travel but always glad to get home. Not a real sports fan but don't mind someone that is. Retired and comfortable.
A little historical information about me: As indicated above I am retired. Worked for 40 years for the State and retired several years ago. I was married at age 19 (almost 20) to the guy I had dated for over two years (this was during high school), we had three children together and divorced after 20 years of marriage. He had substance abuse problems. I was single for approximately 5 years and then married a second time to a member of the Church. He was a very wonderful patient man with me regarding joining the church. After less than a year I agreed to take the discussions from the Missionaries and then became a member. I still consider myself a new member and learning every day. We were later sealed. I lost him, suddenly, just last October. We had just celebrated our 15 year anniversary. I have adjusted to the loss and on my way to trying to find that right someone that can be by my side for the remainder of my years.
Now that I am retired I want to travel to so many places and am looking for someone that wants to travel too. I have girlfriends that can travel with me but they are all married and limited to how often they are able to go (one of them also still works). I do enjoy traveling with them and would never give up a trip once or twice a year with them but am longing for someone to share those romantic moments with me when I travel. Taking a European river boat cruise with girlfriends is just not something I want to do.
As indicated, my children are not members of the Church and have habits that are not in line with the Word of Wisdom and one of them is in live in relationship with children out side of marriage. So I hope my special someone has tolerance with those that are not members of the Church. I love them and their lifestyle is their choice.
All of my 6 Grandchildren live near me and I do spend a lot of time with them, but I have also told them all that I plan to start doing a lot of traveling.
I am not interested in starting a relationship with someone that still has children at home. I am long past that time in my life and do not wish to revisit it. I am open to long distance options.
Thank you for looking at my profile and I hope that we all find what we are looking for in a partner.
