A little about me...
Former corporate executive in NY City who left corporate life in 2000, when I moved to Indy from NJ to be near relatives. I then owned and managed a local retail store for 10 years. Now semi-retired.
Friends consider me intelligent, honest and empathetic. I like quiet evenings at home with occasional evenings out. I am very healthy, take no meds, exercise about 4 times a week at the health club, and take long walks with my golden retriever, Chloe. In a relationship, I try my best to consider how my words and actions might affect my partner's interests and feelings. I like to maintain romance in a relationship as I enjoy giving and reciveing affection, holding hands, etc. Although not a sports fanatic, I do enjoy watching football, NCAA basketball, auto racing and “Top Gear.”
I've grown tired of the angry talking heads on TV talk and news shows, so I've been spending alot more time reading, watching movies and listening to music.
About the one I'm looking for...
An intelligent woman with a sense of humor who is honest, caring, positive and passionate and who takes good care of herself. She should be considerate of my needs and interests, but not ignore her own. She must be willing to freely communicate her needs, thoughts and feelings to help assure a healthy relationship. She should accept me for who I am, what I do and how I treat her and others.
I'd just like to add...
In addition to attraction and chemistry, a good relationship requires honesty, transparency and dialogue, as I consider truth to be paramount. Deceptiveness and secretiveness are game breakers. My motto is: "When you tell the truth, you don't have to remember what you said." A couple should be able to disagree on issues without being disagreeable. I'm not looking for someone who agrees with me on everything, as I believe that "if two people agree on everything, there's a possibility one of them isn't necessary." They should also try hard to maintain passion and romance in the relationship. What is life without passion?
Cooking, exercising, love of animals (especially dogs).
