My name is Bennette and I have two wonderful children who are still in college on the East coast. I was born in the Philippines but I have lived in Hawaii for 30 years---longer than I have lived anywhere else although my culture is still a strong influence in my life.
I am looking for a man who I can love and respect; an intellectual equal who will cherish me, shower me with little thoughtful presents, who will make me laugh and who will affirm his love for me through daily acts of kindness. I know I am capable of such love and with that love, the man I chose will surely feel inspired to become the wonderful human being he is destined to be. Yes, I want the deep and abiding love that will last thru the eternities, the type of love that will sustain both of us through life's journeys.
I have been successful in my careers; started out in television and was a TV news anchor and producer; then had a career in banking for 17 years (senior management), then switched to government relations overseeing community affairs, lobbying and sustainability issues for a global development firm. For the past five years, I have owned my own consulting business which allows me the flexibility to live an authentic and fulfilling life.
I am active in church, a regular temple worshipper and have a strong relationship with the Savior. (Btw - I was married to a non-member for 27 years and have been separated/divorced for 3 years).
I am active in my community and sit on a number of non-profit boards in Hawaii. Service and giving back is an important part of who I am. As part of my volunteer work, I am the managing editor of a major ethnic paper in Hawaii.
I love to travel, read, watch movies and spend time with the family. I am fiercely loyal, a loving mom and a great friend.
I have not gone out on a date in 27 years (yikes!) because my life is full and I am content (almost!). But my dear sister has been bugging me to start so here I am....
