Searching for a candidate who is comfortable partnering with a man who wants to build the kingdom... family comes first. Nurturing the kids and grandkids into mature responsible adults is a good starting objective.
Some things I now think are interesting in a prospective partner after 40 years and becoming single again, but what do I know? I was wrong the first time.
*actively maintaining good physical health for the rest of the journey,
*financial independence and freedom from debt,
*not still fighting past battles,
*finding fulfillment and purpose in a loving a complementary relationship,
*activity in the gospel/kingdom; a daily reader, regular temple,
*an attitude of stewardship, consecration, and sacrifice,
*dedication to achieving harmony of hearts thru common goals and shared work.
Some things that make a partner more interesting:
*enjoyment working together on home remodel
*finding fulfillment gardening
*enjoys life skills coaching/teaching
*love of nature and being out in it, some regular vigorous activity
*love of music, harmonizing, dancing
