  1. Congratulations on putting you first! After being married for 31 years, divorce for 8! I am just now learning to take care of myself, by doing exactly what I want to do and being ok with doing nothing if I choose too! I just retired last year and I felt so lost not having anyone to take care of! Until one day I saw the woman in the mirror and I said take care of her!

  2. I agree I desire love again, but I love myself and he will have to love hisself as well. I do not need a man to validate me, but have a relationship with God and God is the “middle cord” that connects our love together. I need someone whose eyes only behold me and we can love one another unconditionally. He enjoys God, traveling, jovial, accept my son and family and respectable, candid, enjoy being silly and having fun, and accept me as a ordained minister, because God is first in my life. I have connect with Mahogany and my email is connected.
