A little about me...
I am a relatively easygoing person I am sensitive to the sensitivities of my contacts, and good friends, and have long-time friendships. I have a number of friends from many periods in my life and I value their friendship and we visit and travel.
My passions in life have changed over the years (stained glass, playing the recorder, skiing, scuba diving, cooking, my garden) culminating into an area, which has pointed me in the direction of working on some legislation to better a certain situation at hand. I also read, walk, work in my garden, love art, and museuming; art nouveau and art deco periods. . I swim 3 – 4 times a week for relaxation and exercise; I do other volunteer work which is very gratifying.
There is nothing I enjoy more than a connection, romance, and friendship, with someone in which we can both get silly and laugh, as well as be friends and lovers.
I believe that if two people grow to care about each, it is inevitable that issues come up. Communication is very important, as well as continually enhancing what works, and working on what does not.
About the one I'm looking for...
I would like the person I decide to spend time with and develop a relationship with, to have values and liberal thinking similar to mine. I hope that this person could have his own interests, as I have mine, and some might merge, and some would be separate. Perhaps I can learn something new from him, and he might do the same from me.
I admire sensitivity, flexibility, humor, honesty, a person with insight, who is somewhat outgoing, intelligent; someone who will try something on the spur of the moment, or try something new, even if it just once.
Not to the point of no return.
I'd just like to add...
I like companionship. I would love to have a committed, honest, loving relationship. This may be a desire which some believe is impossible. I believe it is possible. Life is an amazing entity. Each day brings new twists and turns and problems to solve. I have, before and after divorce completed personal goals, and had fun doing so. I think now is a time for enjoying the love, friendship, romance and companionship of another person who wishes the same, would be wonderful.
