I'm smiling, optimistic, and caring....hoping to meet a really lovely man.
I'm a warm and friendly person. I love a good conversation, and having a laugh. I'm interested in lots of things - and like to be up with what's going on eg politics, the environment. I like a balance between being out and doing the Cancerian home-loving thing (like a day at home pottering). As time's gone by, simplicity in life appeals more and more!!
In a relationship, I love togetherness and common interests, but also like to have a bit of time for my own interests, and same for my my partner as well - then you can bring things back. Love, trust, good communication, tolerance and kindness are important to me.
As I've stopped work, I'm having a good time with what I really enjoy - friends, family, health, gardening, creative activities, travel, photography, nature, walking, recycling. I would love to go camping again and/or have a basic shack in the country - putting on the fire, enjoying the space and peacefulness - lovely.
I have done quite a lot of travelling - Australia and overseas. I love Europe. More recent trips have been to Laos, Cambodia, India, China,and the Kimberley. Weekends away are great too.
I have also travelled the inner life - and believe that as long as the basics are met (eg ok health, somewhere comfortable to live etc) then happiness is an inside job. I would love to have a partner who has pondered this too. I've surprised myself how much I've been able to let go of past stuff in recent times, and stop worrying about things. I loved it when neuroscience discovered that we keep on making brain cells as we age, so more is possible!
My life is good - but I know there would be a lot of happiness for both in a relationship
