A little about me...
I have a wide variety of interests and a curiosity about about most topics from science to politics and public policy and try to stay current with world events and public policy issues. Love to travel, sailing, reading, PBS and dogs--sometimes cats. I read a good deal and enjoy fiction, history especially historical fiction. I'm a dedicated NPR/PBS listener although I don't always agree and love books on tape while driving. I moved to back "home" to Indiana after a career in the Washington, DC area and now I'm enjoying Indianapolis. Other than hikes or a bike ride on the Monon, I enjoy sailing on Lake Monroe and have joined the sailboat association. A good friend back east gave me a "free" sailboat (no such thing!). I fixed it up a bit last summer, got a new mainsail. At 25 feet, it's big enough for a relaxing day sail on Lake Monroe or even an overnight if you don't mind roughing it a bit. Used to sail a lot on larger boats both on the Chesapeake Bay and in the Caribbean and would love to head there with a new friend. I'd like to find a female friend who would like to learn to sail (or already knows how and she can teach me some things). Family and especially my daughter are really important to me.
About the one I'm looking for...
Looking for a fun,active,attractive, intelligent, affectionate, educated with a good sense of humor female friend, companion who is interested in building a relationship. Someone with an infectious laugh and who sees the humor in life. Someone who is willing to try sailing would be a great bonus as well as an interest in theater, the performing arts, ideas.
I'd just like to add...
I'm the oldest of five with a brother and three sisters. Although we are spread all over the country, we are a close family. Looking for a friend, companion, lover. Someone who wants to enjoy the years we have, do a lot of laughing and make the most out of each day. In my case, my Mom is 93 and still sharp as a tack so it could be awhile!
