A little about me...
I care about people. Love learning. My religious expression is central in my life followed by love of family, friends and pets. People who know me think I am an extrovert, however, I see myself as an introvert because I do need some private time to recharge. I prefer sharing time with close friends and family though I do enjoy group activities. Developing a friendship first is important before a deeper relationship can be considered. To save hurt feelings, if you are divorced and your ex-spouse is still living, as a practicing Catholic, you are still considered married to me. We wouldn't be a match for even casual dating.
About the one I'm looking for...
Honest, good communicator, patient with children and me, enjoys pets, I am looking for a Catholic or Christian widower who likes to read, and doesn't need to be traveling continually. Would enjoy sharing the ordinary experiences of daily life, with a sprinkle of new adventures. I've always liked camping and being around water. I do like the outdoors and am at peace just working around my yard. The companionship of a friend makes even having a cup of coffee better.
I'd just like to add...
Checked off my top two bucket list items with a trip to Ireland and then to Russia. I would love to revisit Yellowstone again, and San Francisco where I was raised. I enjoy family history. Recently purchased Italian language tapes..maybe I'll learn a few words. Someday a trip to Italy might be possible. A few months ago I retired after 30 years working in a hospital setting. Current events and some political activity as a conservation Republican still interests me. Favorite flowers are lilacs, roses and daisies. When I listen to music, it could be religious, jazz, big bands, or classical. Silence has its benefits. Love harmony in nature, personal space, and in relationships. A companion who is supportive and patient is preferred when new adventures are planned. I don't enjoy card games or board games. As to golf, I've never tried it. Sports wasn't my strong point but, if you don't expect wonder woman, I would try it.

My Top Interests:
Religion and Spirituality
In a vast world with many options, one could easily loose a sense of direction without the compass that faith brings--practicing Roman Catholic so I can't keep company with anyone who is divorced.
Family and Friends
Man was not meant to live without family and friends. Friends also include the family pets.
Nature and Outdoors
Picking #3 was hard but places like Yellowstone or the seashores bring a sense of harmony in life. There are so many other things I enjoy.
