A little about me...
I am looking for my last, true love. If I make some special friends during this journey, so much the better.
I am a new member even though I had a profile on this site for quite some time. Just had my 60th birthday on May 9, so I thought it was about time to look at the rest of my life.
I am retired from the military after almost 21 years. I have lived abroad almost half of that time and have developed a strong appreciation for travel and other cultures.
I am a Christian and think most Christians have very similar beliefs. Most importantly to me is; Live as if you will be judged tomorrow.
I love the arts! I have dabbled in collecting some art pieces from different auctions. I love the theater, concerts and have many fond memories browsing through museums.
I think the attraction and chemistry is what starts a relationship. At least those not started by massive amounts of alcohol. As I am sitting here drinking a glass of wine.
I did meet someone on a different site (Match) and we met for coffee. The first words out of her mouth were, "well, you are no Brad Pitt". Really, if I were him, would I be on this site. I did think it was funny. I do admit, I am no Brad Pitt. More like a cross between Sam Elliot and John Wayne.
About the one I'm looking for...
I am looking for marriage, a life partner, a travel partner and a friend. I hope to find someone that likes to travel and experience new adventures. I do not want to limit myself on distance because I am not tied down where I live. The grass may not be greener on the other side of the hill, but you never know until you make the journey.
I want someone who has a sense of humor and can laugh at themselves because you will get lots of opportunities to laugh at and with me.
I want a person who is happy and content with themselves. If you aren't, how can you be happy in a relationship.
I prefer someone who is educated and willing to continue the learning process with me. Life, travel and adventure are all learning experiences.
I will add to this later, but will answer all questions.
I'd just like to add...
I don't know if I am a giver or a taker, maybe a little of both at times. I'd rather think that I am a sharer. I like to live as if I were going to be judged tomorrow. I don't like putting someone on a pedestal because I would rather have them by my side. I like physical contact in public (PDA if you want to call it that). I will give a neck and shoulder rub in front of anyone and I love holding hands in public. My mother and grandmother taught me to be a gentleman early in life.

My Top Interests:
Nature and Outdoors
I enjoy nature very much. I will say that I do hunt and fish but it does not consume me or my time. My father taught me to enjoy and respect nature and he was a huge outdoorsman.
I like most music. If I had to pick a favorite, it would be classic rock and country. I used to do quite a bit of country ballroom dancing. I love art, museums and theater and have slept through an opera.
I love to travel!! I have made three major trips so far this year. The first to Costa Rica and then to the Caribbean. Another trip to Costa Rica and I just returned from a road trip to Pennsylvania.
