A little about me...
My family, close friends, and my heritage are most important to me. I am proud of and like spending time with my four kids and one grandchild. I'm interested in my Czech and German heritage, but particularly the Czech side. I have been to Europe several times, but I would like to see much more of the world in the future. I have several destinations on my bucket list and would really like a travel partner. Now retired, I had a 35-year career in state government in human services administration, planning, and advocacy. I am smart, often witty with bad puns, and sometimes downright silly. I enjoy a good laugh! I love to be surrounded by beauty—one of the reasons I collect decorative Czech crystal and folk art. I enjoy a laid back lifestyle of reading, watching movies and TV (political shows, crime shows, history channel, comedy), listening to music (jazz , blues, classical, and classic rock) and watching football. I have been a huge Packer fan since the 1950s. I like intellectual discussions and occasionally enjoy a game of tennis or ping pong. Some other things that are important or of interest to me are politics, history, the arts, meeting new friends, and rekindling old relationships.
About the one I'm looking for...
I am looking for a partner who is attractive, intelligent, witty, conscientious, honest, genuine, kind, sensitive, and caring. My ideal partner would always have a positive and upbeat outlook on life no matter what, have a glass half-full attitude, and have a quick and easy smile and laugh. She would also have time to take on new adventures and explore the world with me. I would like a partner who values spending time together as much as I do. Being a good cook would be a bonus! :)
I'd just like to add...
I’ve been told I’m nice, honest, caring, sensitive, persistent, loyal, respectful of others, and have integrity. In a relationship, I am always providing a helping hand where needed, considerate of my partner’s feelings, and am old-fashioned with gentlemanly gestures and common courtesies (e.g. holding doors open). I enjoy holding hands and going for walks with my partner.
Ingredients of a great relationship include: open and honest communication, treating each other respectuflly and equally, chemistry, and being able to talk through and resolve disagreements while appreciating differences in point of view

My Top Interests:
News and Politics
I like to follow and discuss political ideas and current events, coming from a center-left perspective but am open to all viewpoints. I was a high school and collegiate debater for 8 years and enjoy the give-and-take of all sides of an issue in the arena of political discourse.
I enjoy learning about the culture and history of people all around the world, and would like to visit as many places as I can.
Family and Friends
I like to spend as much time with my family and close friends as possible.
