A little about me...
I'm 5'7" and of average build with broad shoulders, probably caused by slinging bales of hay when I had horses. I really enjoy going to the gym and try to go every other day to work on the machines and walk on the treadmill. I also like walking my dog. I used to like to cook, but find it's not much fun cooking for just one person...or one person and one dog. I like spicy and ethnic foods and have a large cookbook collection.
I've moved to DE recently and had to face the challenge of furnishing a house starting from scratch, so I can be found attending auctions and flea markets regularly, as I vowed not to go the big, fancy furniture store route: too boring and predictable. Eclectic is my choice.
I love art and would like to get back into painting to have some nice pictures to hang up.
About the one I'm looking for...
Looking for someone who is truthful, honest and reliable. Someone who loves to laugh and has a great smile, can be silly or serious, who values family, animals and the outdoors. Our interests could match or compliment each other so that we could learn together. Of course, if he enjoys auctions, flea markets and playing games, that would be marvelous. Sometimes I like to be a follower, but also have to be a leader on occasion.
I enjoy history and art. Also love small towns, architecture, dog shows and fishing.
Tall would be a good quality (makes me feel protected) and I like facial hair and either no hair or longish hair. No rabid Republicans! Smoking is undesirable too.
It won't take long to see if the chemistry is there or not.
I'd just like to add...
I'm not a sports nut, but I do watch the Eagles--at first in hopes of seeing Michael Vick encounter well-deserved misfortune, but now I'm hooked. Also family rivalry: my brother is a huge Cowboys fan.

My Top Interests:
Family and Friends
Family is the most important thing in the world to me. I am happy to be back living in Delaware around my whole family. I look forward to watching my great nieces grow up and being a part of their lives.
Nature and Outdoors
I love walking on the beach or in the woods, observing the plants and creatures with whom we share this earth.
Shopping and Collecting
Flea markets, garage sales, auctions, antiques: searching for that one hidden gem is challenging. Also love county fairs, 4H shows, roadside veggie stands, home made pies. Mmm.
