A little about me...
Some of you are very specific about what you're looking for, so I thought I'd save you a little time and tell you some things I'm not. I'm not slender, I'm not conservative, I'm not religious in any organized way, and I don't play golf. If you're still reading and haven't posted pictures of yourself with fish, here are some things I am. I'm generally positive and optimistic. That I'm still on here perhaps speaks to that. I play bridge and belong to book clubs, and I am a part of the community through volunteering. Water aerobics and water yoga are a part of my weekly schedule, too. I enjoy creating a comfortable home, and I like cooking when I have someone to appreciate it. I don't have children, but my nephews and niece think I'm the "cool" aunt. What's missing is that person who's available to do things on the spur of the moment, whether it's a movie or a road trip, that person with whom to share a running joke, that person who offers a soft place to land when I need it.
About the one I'm looking for...
I'm looking for a man who's engaged in the world around him--someone who has his own interests but is supportive of mine and interested in finding things for us to enjoy together. Ideally, he'll enjoy traveling both in the US and abroad. He'll like trying new restaurants; going to movies, live theatre, and concerts; shopping; going to the farmer's market, whitewater rafting, and lots more. He'll be compassionate and tolerant. He'll recognize what needs to be done and do it without being asked.
I'd just like to add...
I'm an avid reader, though not a particularly discriminating one. I enjoy historical fiction (especially if it's set in the Tudor period), biography, contemporary novels, and a healthy dose of action/adventure. I love the beach in the fall.. I enjoy cooking, but, as many of you know, cooking for one isn't a lot of fun. My most recent trip outside the US was to the British Isles. I've visited England several times, but I'd love to re-visit Ireland. At this time in our lives, I think relationships can be hard work. I'd love to find someone who's worth the work! UPDATE: I've been back to Ireland now, and it was wonderful. I don't have another trip planned right now, but I'm open to suggestions!

My Top Interests:
