I am a widow. My cup is always half full. I enjoy humor but never at another's expense. I am not a high maintenance women. It takes a lot to bring me to a boiling point but having said that I am quick to forgive. I am a giving person. My husband always came first as would any other man I marry should that happen. I am romantic and enjoy hearing endearments that would cheer me up or make me feel good, having said that, however, while I like to be paid attention to I do not like to be smothered. I do not like to be controlled, such as, be home at this time or else explain where you were, et. I want a man not ashamed to hold my hand in public. A man that helps carry in the groceries instead of holding the door open so I can carry them in. I like a man not ashamed to shed tears. I like a man that is willing to discuss any issue that is bothering him so we can work together to get back on a paved hi way instead of one made of bricks and rocks.
