I don't march to anyone else's drumbeat. Oh, I may waltz or cha-cha, but it often isn't even to music, and I definitely will not March! I am low maintenance, self-reliant, highly impassioned-which is sometimes mistook for dramatic, and very detail oriented. I am looking for someone who can appreciate and celebrate a sometimes nontraditional approach to good old fashioned values. I need someone who likes to listen as much as share. I expect my friends to be tolerant and kind to everyone, not just me! I am seeking a best friend first & foremost!
I currently provide live in/ private duty care to my elderly parents. About Thanksgiving time, full time days progressed into 24/7 monitoring needs. Siblings provide respite breaks as scheduling & winter road conditions allow, (at which time I go back to my house next door). Providing this service is not only one of the most challenging/educational positions I have ever voluntarily signed on for, but my honor, a privilege, and dear to my heart. I have promised myself, if at all possible, that my sweet & precious parents will be allowed to be in their own home, comforted by what is most familiar to them, until their deaths. A little inconvenience on my part is Nothing compared to the lifelong sacrifices & dedication they have given me! A prospective match will "get it". In essence, I cognitively & behaviorally have two aged children! Therefore I have NO intention of moving quickly into anything. Besides, Best Friendships take time to nurture and develop if they're going to last Forever After anyway ;-)
I do not base my happiness and fulfillment on whether I am in a relationship with a man. I don't believe anyone needs to complete me but the Lord. However, I totally support worthy men holding the Priesthood keys and authority; the importance of having that Blessing and the Celestial Ordinances in my life. I just mean that when a relationship is right, I believe joy and synergy takes everything to a new level - I prefer two wholes creating a "WOW" rather than hoping two parts form one codependent entity. I expect us to remain individuals whether in a relationship or not!!
As much as I love romance, right now I merely seek friendships to balance my life. I have no further expectations, as I can not promise this venture will be my first priority. Those seeking perfect partners now, I say friendships ARE worth the time, every time! I can promise a great cheering section should your soul mate come along :-D I hold out hope for finding one myself along the way!
