A little about me...
It's spring....and living near the Twin Lakes in Boulder, I am seeing the Canadian geese and the wild ducks pairing up. I am feeling the same way...spring is a beautiful time to share the outdoors, travel, cooking and eating, ideas, and affection. I want someone to walk at my side equally sharing what life has to offer. I'm looking for a partner who loves being outdoors. I thoroughly enjoy hiking, biking, want to learn to roller blade, gardening, Last year I decided I wanted to learn to downhill ski. I took lessons last winter and again this year ....and finally have achieved confidence on the blues! Eureka! I keep in shape and would like my partner to be fit as well - life is just so much more enjoyable when you feel good.
I have a cabin in the mountains to the west of Ft. Collins. It is my retreat where I go to listen to and smell the wind in the pines. I like to sink into quiet times and feel the fulness of being.
I taught school for 30 years and am now retired. I taught ESL and high school Spanish. I love traveling in Latin America particularly, although I have lived and traveled in many parts of the world. Besides enjoying the outdoors, I love to cook...cooking and eating together fills more than just our stomachs.
About the one I'm looking for...
I seek a true partner in every sense of the word. The more we have in common, the more we can enjoy our time together. I am a very open-minded, easy-going, flexible, optimistic, happy person. I am curious about life and the world and love learning new things, so I would be eager to try things my partner enjoys. I would hope he would feel the same. I do not like to argue and hope for mutual respect and unconditional acceptance. I would be delighted if this man I long for could be handy around the house - I would of course be a helpmate in all endeavors. I take pride in my home and hope he would feel the same.
I'd just like to add...
I am a gentle person who has no need to control. I love to laugh but am serious about living life responsibly and lovingly. I am not materialistic, but rich in appreciation and love of life. I long for the intimacy of shared thoughts and open conversation. I want a strong, loving, happy relationship with a man who has integrity and respects himself and me.
