A little about me...
Fun, energetic, trip-taking, bicycle-riding, music-listening/playing/dancing, kayak-paddling, dining-out, movie-going 58-year-old guy seeks woman with similar interests to be friends first, and more if that all-elusive chemistry is right. I am mostly retired, and divide my annual calendar between Wisconsin and Florida. This is not set in stone, just the current situation, and I would consider relocating to SW Florida for the right person. I should emphasize that I’m a bit of an acquired taste. So if I don’t knock your socks off on our first encounter, please give me a little time. While I consider myself a fun and interesting person to be around, I am rarely described as the “life of the party,” in that coked-up disc jockey sort of way that some people find charming and amusing. My sense of humor leans more toward the dry, irreverent, even slightly wicked at times, that takes a while to develop as I discover what tickles your funny bone. But here comes the bonus round: I’ve got it in spades where it counts … I’m loyal, I’ll watch your back, I won’t intentionally hurt you, and I’ll say I’m sorry when I screw up. I will revel in your happiness, and hold you when you are sad, and I give great hugs and backrubs.
About the one I'm looking for...
I enjoy doing most of the things people list in these write-ups. But I’m just as interested – if not more so – in meeting a woman with a kind heart, who knows the difference between being “correct” and being “right,” and who doesn’t take herself too seriously. You are incurably curious, and you haven’t let life’s misfortunes crush your spirit or sense of wonder. You are equally happy parasailing 200 feet over the ocean on a Caribbean beach, or playing a game of Scrabble over a glass of favorite wine. While I don’t expect you to be at my beck and call, your schedule should be sufficiently loose to allow for some spontaneity. You should be sophisticated enough to know that Red Lobster doesn’t really have good seafood, but not so uptight that you wouldn’t watch “Airplane” with me on an evening when I’m craving a good belly laugh. And don’t call me Shirley. (Extra points if you get that).
I'd just like to add...

My Top Interests:
Love new adventures. Enjoy cruising. Big trips, or weekend getaways, it doesn't matter.
I enjoy many type of music, and also play the piano (pops, standards, etc.) Though not classically trained, I have a good time with it.
Enjoy new restaurants and also have my "old standby's." I would say I'm a foodie, but not a food snob. I enjoy a good chili dog, or dinner at four-star restaurant.
