A little about me...
I'm a pretty low-key individual, but still waters run deep. I am a loyal friend, and I believe the "old fashioned" values like your word is your bond, helping others "just because", and smelling the roses. Maui is home and I love to enjoy all the diversity offered from concerts at the MACC, to exercising in deep water at the beach. I enjoy exploring the dining varieties offered island-wide as well as cooking at home with friends. Enjoy playing card & board games, sharing a bottle of wine, ballroom dancing, or reading a book. Have done a fair amount of traveling when I worked for an airline, but now would enjoy revisiting many of these places more leisurely - as well as seeing the many places still on my "to see" list.
About the one I'm looking for...
PLEASE GENTLEMEN...IF YOU DON'T POST A PICTURE OR FILL OUT INFORMATION ABOUT YOURSELF, PLEASE DON'T EXPECT ME TO RESPOND TO YOU (what is there to respond to?). I'm looking toward an early retirement (coming sooner than I had previously anticipated!) and would like a partner to share my new-found time. I don't want a full-time clown as I enjoy serious conversations, but love to be with someone who makes me laugh. Hope to find someone who can enjoy both the exciting times and the quiet times. My goal is to find a friend first, and then let that friendship grow to take the shape it will.
Most things are negotiable - I'm pretty easy-going - but there are a few non-negotiable things:
• must be financially solvent (now that my daughter is grown & on her own, I need to be financially prudent to be sure I can continue to provide for myself),
• must be monogamous (if it gets to that point),
• must be a non-smoker (hate that old-smoke smell & taste!), and
• cannot try to impose religious views (I don't share most of the beliefs of organized religions & am not willing to be "converted") or political views (I'm somewhere between an independent and a democrat).
I'd just like to add...
About me: I'm looking forward to a new time in my life where everything no longer revolves around work. I am more than "what I do for a living"...and hope to find someone to explore this with me!
About using this site (something for you to think about, and I'm saying this a 2nd time, so please consider this):
If you don't upload a picture, and/or you don't fill out your profile information, please don't bother contacting me - I have no way to see if I'm interested!
If you can't share anything in writing, it does not bode well for you sharing in person...just sayin'.

My Top Interests:
I like the personal challenge. Good fun - and I can push me as hard (or not!) as I want.
This is actually a combination with Nature & Outdoors. There is so much in the world I want to see and learn and experience. I'd love to cruise with side excursions all over the world!
Family and Friends
They are the 'stitches' that hold my 'fabric' together. Although I enjoy my private time, and am a very independent person, I value the deep connections felt with my special people. Experiences shared are even more wonderful.
