A little about me...
I'm easygoing, but I am learning not to accept self-centred women, without losing my ability to be thoughtful and caring.
I come from a traveling family. My generation started in England and I now have relatives in Spain, Australia, and New Zealand, as well as England.
My mother started in New Zealand, moving to England in about 1935. That's why I have family in NZ. I enjoy visiting family, as well as travelling to new places.
I like music, mostly pop. One is supposed to pick a date or at least a range, say 1980's, but I like most of it. I have a good stereo system.
Some of my travelling has been on sailboats...8 times transatlantic. I was a professional pleasure boat crew for 15 years. Now I mostly fly.I like good food (no relation to airline food), and meeting people, including kids. I still work on pleasure boats, doing electrical repairs and upgrades. I am semi-retired so I am phasing this out.
About the one I'm looking for...
I am looking for a caring sympathetic woman with varied interests, ideally including traveling and music.Someone who notices what is going on around her, particularly people and their interests. Live plays and musicals are coming into my circle. Some of my family is heavily into that and I seem to enjoy it.
Touching and hugging is nice too. Most of my family is rather cold and distant. This is traditional in England, but I am trying to get away from that.
I would like to meet someone who puts more than "send me a message" in her profile. An interesting profile gets my attention, and if I write my own profile and send a message I am doing all the work. So someone outgoing and creative enough to write an interesting profile is more attractive to me. After all, there is plenty of space here.
I'd just like to add...
I didn't mention sense of humour. I like to see the funny side of events and I like people who can do that too.

My Top Interests:
I like seeing new places and meeting new people
News and Politics
American politics is driven by ideology rather than what works, so political dialogue is out of touch with reality. It is still important to try for practical results in spite of the ideology.
I like a good well-prepared meal
