A little about me...
A relatively youthful, healthy, 71 year old, I'm single after a 41-year marriage. Raised on Long Island NY, I worked as a research scientist and administrator in the Buffalo area since 1975. My springer spaniel and I have been on our own for about 7 years. I'm self-sufficient; I can cook, clean, do laundry, make beds, etc. I am not looking for some one to take care of me, I'm looking for someone to share and enjoy life with. If you enjoy holding hands and are not averse to public displays of affection, all the better.
I prefer a written message to flirts; they tell me what piqued your interested and help me start to know you. And a photo in your profile is essential.
About the one I'm looking for...
My search is for someone who is open and honest, positive and optimistic, independent, confident, affectionate, caring, energetic, is a bit adventurous and always ready to laugh and who shares some of my interests. I am not a person of faith. But, I respect and admire the faith of those whose religious principles provide a framework for their everyday life.
I'd just like to add...
Many of my interests involve being outdoors:bird watching, gardening, biking, hiking, concerts, canoeing, and cross country skiing. But I also enjoy traveling, museums, theater, dining out, esp. outdoors, yoga and reading. Count me in for anything that includes laughter. I can't dance, but I would like to learn. That should be good for a few laughs. The songs on my ipod range from Eric Clapton, Janis Joplin and Fats Domino to Toploader, John Mayer, Norah Jones. I tend to be shy and reserved with people I don't know, but pretty uninhibited with those I know well. At my age I have a past that has been instructive, but live in the present and for the future. I should not be permitted to use power tools and I don't know how to grill, but I will ask for directions.
Thanks for taking the time to read my profile. Good luck with your search.
