A little about me...
Semi-retired Registered Nurse and Business Owner. I say "semi-retired" as I am always looking for something to keep me busy.
I have started and then sold two businesses with my sister who is my best friend.
My mother was British and I spent part of my childhood in England--have fond memories of fish and chips wrapped in newspaper bought on the corner near Grandma's house the summer of 1964 at the height of the Beatles mania. :)
As you know Portland is beautiful but the price we pay for all this beauty is rain and lots of it. Therefore, traveling is a very good thing. It is on my bucket list to sail around the Greek Islands with friends.
But I do not have to be in faraway places--also like exploring closer to home checking out small towns with quiant stores or out of the way coffee shops and cafes especially if they use local produce in their cooking.
Other interests? Attending concerts --indoors as well as outside, hiking, fine dining and wine, being with friends and family, going to movies with happy endings and reading a good book. Dancing is fun but I am not great at it--yet.
The water holds a special draw for me. My water activities include kayaking, boating and activities at CRYC.
About the one I'm looking for...
I like a man who is:
-- high energy
-- self assured
-- financially secure
I want him to have a positive outlook on life, have a sense of humor, enjoy life, smile and laugh easily, show affection.
I'd just like to add...
I have discovered the "meet over coffee" scene is not always fun and I am not interested in a long distance relationship. I much prefer going to meetups where you meet and mingle in a much more relaxed atmosphere. An example is the "Sunday NIght Dance Party" I went to recently. Had a fabulous time and met some fun people.
