A little about me...
Hello, I am a fairly recent widower. I lost my wife of 37 yrs. in May 2014. What I am looking for... I am not looking for a serious long term relationship in my life at this point. I do not rule that out...as anything is possible. I just think I am not quite ready for that. What I am ready for is a friend, travel buddy or casual relationship. I'd like someone to go out with...do and see things with. Someone to go out to eat with, a musical venue, movie etc. I'd like to think I am considered a thoughtful, caring individual I learned manners at an early age. I am honest, trust worthy and expect the same. I am a Michigan history buff. I collect and read books on the subject...mainly Upper Peninsula. I like genealogy and researching the past...whether it is people places or things. I like museums like the Henry Ford, Michigan Historical etc. I have a deep rooted connection to the U.P. of Michigan....I like road trips, lighthouses, railroads, waterfalls and the shores of our Great Lakes. I enjoy tent camping. I have started that bucket list that so many talk about. It includes seeing many new places, trying new things. Ready to live life again.
About the one I'm looking for...
I would like to find someone with some similar interests. Interests of her own to share. Someone outgoing, adventurous and spontaneous. Average or slender build, a few extra pounds is alright....but not too big. Remember I like outdoor stuff...like hiking, walking, tent camping, canoeing and the such. So active and somewhat physically fit is great. I am a simple guy. So a simple low maintenance gal is preferred. Very important....Honest, trustworthy, Pretty and a nice smile...big plus. Loving, caring, thoughtful and romantic. An independent gal, strong mind and soul. Financially stable, family oriented. My family means everything to me. If you are catholic or a friend of Bill's.....big plus.
I'd just like to add...
I am a smoker....but that is high on my list of changes to be made. If you are a non smoker and are adamant about not being around someone who still does. I respect that but please pass me by. I'm looking for a friend first and foremost. I am me and that's what you get. I am a non- drinker. You do not need be....just won't deal with someone who's life revolves around it. Two things I won't respond to....someone with out a picture (are we hiding from someone) and Legally Separated. This is only by past experience. Not everyone is honest on here. Please don't take offense. I am serious in my venture to find someone to hang with. Please respect that. I respect all those who are serious as well. If you can't share something in your bio as to who you are or what you seek...Chances are I am not impressed. Best wishes all of you, in finding that which you seek.
