A little about me...
Confident, warm, a good communicator. I have been widowed twice and, though content being alone, am looking for a loving, compatible gentleman to share my life.
My interests are family, interior decorating, art, Husky sports, coffee and conversation, civic affairs and volunteering.. I love this state and, having moved a lot in the early years of my first marriage,(to a career AF officer) want to stay right here. I like the Oregon coast, local drives, discovering new places and an occasional cruise or time in California or Hawaii. Having traveled extensively in Europe I am quite happy staying closer to home.
Born, raised and educated in England I still have some accent, even after 50 years in the US!!
I look much younger than my years and am considered attractive .....doesn't everyone say that?? I'm financially secure and love my condo. I dress well, take care of myself and like to always look good for you .....and myself.
About the one I'm looking for...
I'd like to have a relationship eventually but start with dating to get to know each other. Although I am slow to make a commitment I am a one man woman...loving and loyal. Am not looking for marriage or a home but would like to spend time and experiences together.
I happily give space to my partner to continue with his current hobbies and activities. However I would hope that he would become part of my "family and friends" scenario when appropriate, as I would with his. I am a romantic and believe that the man I am looking for is out there. You are confident, affectionate, intelligent, loving, caring, honest, loyal and a gentleman...a good communicator and be able to laugh at yourself..... and me! Communication is the core of a relationship and so important...as is chemistry. You are financially secure, have a home and it would be a real plus if you like to cook on occasion. You care about your appearance and that of your home also! You can expect the same from me!
I'd just like to add...
I enjoy movies on a rainy day as long as they are not violent...it's fun to hold hands! I always have the radio playing, either talk radio or music...am somewhat of a news junkie. Like to eat out...al fresco on warm days. Prefer small restaurants but like any where on the water. Live theater, the symphony occasionally, art fairs are things I like to do...what do you like to do? I'm happy curled up at home with a crossword puzzle or a book.
I have three married children and eight grandchildren and some of my favorite times are when we all get together for special occasions. Waterobics is my exercise of choice, with a coffee group discussion afterwards! I do this three times a week.
