i am on the quiet side, an introvert. More of a listener than a talker. Down to earth, peaceful nature, calm, easy going, patient, kind, caring, good hearted, empathetic, understanding, family oriented person. It would be nice to be completely smitten by someone but I don’t fall very easily. If it’s meant to be it will be if not that’s ok too. I am 51, I don’t have any grandiose, la la land expectations. I’ve seen and experienced life for what it is, at this point anything more is a bonus, and would be a pleasant surprise. I have been through a lot of ups and downs (who hasn't), ok more downs than ups, but i'm still hopefull that the best is yet to come. Yes I'm older, and it's slim pickings at my age but one never knows what the day will bring. I truly hope that it's not too late to meet my partner and "soulmate" for however many days, years i have left on this earth. Some things that are a turn off - if you're a chain smoker, rude, swear profusely, too pushy, overbearing, aggressive, hot headed (ok so i've pretty much excluded most of the men on this planet, lol). Definitely must be single or officially divorced; no one separated or married.
