I'm fairly independent, somewhat private, but enjoy companionship, especially that of a loving partner. I enjoy the warmth of holding hands, hugs, cuddling, kisses, and spending time with the person I love, and who loves me in return. I feel that I have a lot to offer, and am looking forward to the time when I finally find that special person.
I love being with my family. I have six wonderful children--raised mostly on my own--and I am so grateful for them. They are married, and I have 18 grandchildren, so far. Most of them live out of the area, so I don't see them as often as I would like.
I've been an educator for many years, have retired, but will always love teaching, education, and learning. I'm currently substitute teaching, almost full time, but enjoying the flexibility.
I've had many ups and downs in my life, but have survived them all--so far. Currently, I'm in the upward mode and planning to continue in that direction.
I enjoy reading, movies, theater, ballet, opera, music, art, all spectator sports, nature and the outdoors, and all things beautiful and uplifting. I enjoy dressing up for special occasions, but am also comfortable wearing "grubbies" and getting my hands dirty.
I would love traveling almost anywhere!
The Gospel is very important to me, and I am looking for someone who will work together with me toward Eternal goals, and who will help me become a better person. I would love to serve a mission with my partner at some future date.
Truth, honesty, humility, integrity and unselfishness in a relationship are vital to me. I would like to find a partner who wants to listen as well as talk to me, who has a variety of interests, who likes to have fun, laugh, and who enjoys life.
