A little about me...
I have been in education all my adult life, teaching children, then providing professional development to teachers. I love what I do and am now in a postition to retire and pick and choose my work. I plan to work for several more years because quite frankly what else would I do??? Besides that, it gives me a great deal of satisfaction. I believe in being compassionate, friendly, sincere, loyal, selfless (within reason), and having a good work ethic. I am also very independent and would want a companion who understands and respects that. I love to have fun and socialize.
About the one I'm looking for...
As I mentioned before, the characteristics I have myself, I would want in others: compassionate, friendly, sincere, loyal, strong work ethic, fun, independent, and confident (but not arrogant.) Presently I am simply looking for someone to have fun with, go to concerts, dinner, travel, whatever comes along....not necessarily a long term relationship. But, I certainly wouldn't rule that out. The person I finally commit to would have to be ready to be a very big part of my family, which will eventually include grandchildren, I hope. And they would also have to be someone I could count on to be the person I would seek out during tough times, knowing I would have their full understanding and support. Selfishness is not a part of that picture.
I'd just like to add...
I love kids and dogs! I have two grown chilren. My son is an architect and is 25 with high goals to one day design skyscrapers. My daughter is 22 and in Culinary School, hoping to one day own her own bakery. She lives with me right now, but is ready to "fly the coop." My kids are very important in my life, as are the rest of my family members and my friends. I value the relationships I have and that has come back to me in so many wonderful ways. I would like to try new things I have never done, including getting "addicted" to exercise. I do that in spurts, but need someone to push me to be more dedicated. I also want to travel to places I have never been and spend winters in warm climates.
