|Seeking Eventual Marriage|
Hi, and welcome to my personal web site. My name is Mary. I'm 49, divorced, and nonsmoking. This is a current site. If you're reading this, I'm still searching.
I'm slender, attractive, and youthful. I'm 5'6" and weigh 120 to 125 pounds. I have long brown hair and blue eyes.
I'm very loving, affectionate, honest, faithful, gentle, strong, empathetic, compassionate, romantic, open, intelligent, wise, articulate, rational, logical, objective, practical, analytical, philosophical, existentialistic, passionate, eccentric, and fun. I have a great sense of humor. I value chemistry. I've worked out a lot in my life, and I'd relish getting regular exercise with a special friend. I love life and personal growth and development. I have high self-esteem. I know what I need, and I know what I want, and I know the difference between those two things. I'm assertive in a healthy way. I know how to ask for what I need. I like a straightforward man, and I need a man who's not controlling with me. I appreciate the importance of compromise. I delight in the process of communication. I seek mutual self-disclosure, discovery, respect, and agreement to disagree. In all, I'm warm, caring, patient, understanding, and nurturing.
I love psychology and philosophy, though I have little formal education in those subjects. I especially like cognitive therapy (rational emotive therapy and bio behavioral cognitive therapy). I believe that it's my responsibility to create the meaning in my life.
I like to feel, think, learn, laugh, read and discuss, debate, play cards and many other games, watch movies and TV, eat out, shop at thrift stores and library book sales, walk, hike, bike, in-line skate, fly kites, enjoy nature, travel into the city, and explore. I'm up for trying new things. For me, though, it's not so much what I'm doing but who I'm doing it with.
I'm like a kid when it comes to playing, and I have
fun in many ways. None of the pastimes I mention
here are necessary; nevertheless, I could spend hours playing two-square
in the parking lot or chicken base between the trees with a plastic bat and
ball. I love playing unprofessional soccer from one end of the yard to the
other and keep-away with a ball in a pool or lake. One of my favorite active
games is called koosh-ball. Whether it's badminton, "Horse," marbles, racing
remote-control dump trucks in the driveway, or tiddlywinks, the best part
of all is the laughter.
Sometimes I call myself an atheist because I disbelieve the existence of a god. Sometimes I call myself an agnostic because I believe that I can't know with absolute certainty that there is no god. Sometimes I call myself an agnostic atheist because my perspective falls in the overlap between the range of agnostic thought and the smaller range of atheistic thought. While it's my opinion that a god most probably doesn't exist, I like to distinguish my perspective from that of those atheists who say that they know absolutely that there is no god. I also like to differentiate my attitude from that of those agnostics who explore metaphysical ideas.
I prefer not to use the terms spirit or spirituality when referring to myself, because those words are often (though not always) associated with metaphysical beliefs. Rather, when it comes to personal growth, I think in terms of the mental, emotional, and physical aspects of man. I don't think that there's some essential "self" or "spirit" that exists as a part of me or as other than all that I am mentally, emotionally, and physically. Yet, if someone wanted to know whether I would describe myself as spiritual if spiritual meant "into personal development," I'd be comfortable saying, "Yes, I'm spiritual by that definition."
I'm respectful toward all individuals and their beliefs. Several dear persons in my life are believers. For example, my two grown daughters are, and we're very close. I'd prefer, however, to explore the possibilities of a relationship with an atheistic or agnostic man. I'm willing to meet a man who believes in a god somewhat, but it's unlikely that I'd find compatibility with someone who has a significant belief in anything supernatural.
I seek eventual marriage for its many satisfactions, especially the emotional and physical pleasures of love and intimacy. Being best friends first is so important to me; I believe in taking plenty of time to discover if a deep friendship and compatibility is possible before making the marriage commitment. I long for a partnership with a great deal of closeness, fun, and laughter. I prefer lots of togetherness. When I love a man, I love him with my whole heart; my life revolves around him, and I like it that way. I'm capable of a happy, lasting marriage with the most solid commitment, the greatest mental and emotional intimacy, and the deepest feelings of love. All I need is my counterpart.
