A little about me...
I am a retired healthcare professional who worked in laboratory management. I enjoyed my career but now like being able to do other things. As a small child I only wanted to be a cowboy when I grew up. That feeling lasted awhile but eventually faded. What did not fade was my affinity for horses, dogs and most other live creatures. Over the years many of them have been woven into the fabric of my life.
The activities involved with my animals have allowed me to meet people from all over the country with whom I have been friends for many years. I have had the opportunity to enjoy many different experiences, such as travel; to sample the local flavor of a beef barbeque, mechanical bull ride and rodeo in Texas; a clambake with a band and dancing on the beach in Maine. For many years I trained/showed dogs. I may like to do that again on a small scale. Presently I do not own a horse but would love to have one again to do some trail riding.
I live in a rural area of Central New York which is very accessible to the city and all the amenities thereof. I am told I have a good sense of humor and tend to be outgoing, but still can be reserved if appropriate.
About the one I'm looking for...
This is difficult to describe, really, but....I consider myself a gentleman and I would like a lady who is honest, congenial, has a sense of humor (I like to laugh!). She must have an affinity for animals as there will always be some around....right now just 1 dog, 2 cats and a canary! The ability to respect our relationship and confidentiality is very important...to be able to discuss anything and be comfortable in doing so. I am a romantic, therefore I would like a lady who is pleased by that and so inclined herself. She should be openminded, someone who enjoys the closeness of two people being together and sharing, yet maintaining individuality....a lady in her late 60's through 70's...who would enjoy residing here, living the country lifestyle without sacrificing urban benefits. I am not willing to relocate. I believe a quality relationship is forged on a balance between the two of us, complementing each personality.
I'd just like to add...
Oldies music as well as Country are my favorites. I enjoy dancing to both! Dining out is great, but so is staying home and eating in, watching TV, reading a good book. I like to go to flea markets, antique shops and real movies! The beautiful Adirondack Mountains are about a 2 hour drive from here. If contacting me, please include a photo and send a message rather than a flirt.
