A little about me...
I am outgoing, easy to be around, sense of humor, affectionate and a good listener. I was a court mediator in another life. I think that must mean I can hear both sides of an issue and understand each person's viewpoint. I retired from that other life, and moved from Laguna Beach, CA to Bailey Island, Maine for 10 years, and recently moved to an apartment in Brunswick, ME. I enjoy discussing the issues of the day, but don't like to argue. I am middle of the road in politics.
About the one I'm looking for...
I am looking for a man who is bright and funny and thoughtful. I appreciate honesty and don't deal well with manipulative people or people who lie. Ideally, I would love to find a guy who enjoys some of the same things I do, and who can also introduce me to other activities as well.
I'd just like to add...
I enjoy reading, photography, dancing, dining out, movies, going to antique shows and yard sales, travel, I collect Chinese snuff bottles. My family and friends mean a great deal to me. I like to keep fit, and exercise by walking the treadmill, and using the weights in the gym several times a week. I have just moved to an apartment (with a wonderful sun porch) in town and like being able to walk everywhere (weather and distance permitting). Also, above, in the "Pets" section, I put cats, dogs and horses. I have only a cat, but like dogs and horses too, and have owned all at one time or another. I will be taking a class on digital cameras in January/February '14, because I have discovered I love taking pictures, and want to be sure I can utilize everything my camera has to offer. I think exploring nearby towns and photography are a great combination.
I am also a volunteer driver at a senior center here in Brunswick, and plan to volunteer at our library as well.
Especially if you live in the Brunswick area, for pete's sake, contact me here before I leave in a couple of days. Maybe we could go have soup at Wild Oats, or just have coffee now and then. It would be fun to make a friend.

My Top Interests:
Actually, I enjoy movies and restaurants, especially on the same day.
It is too difficult to only pick three interests, so I am putting travel in along with collecting vintage things. I can travel and shop for antiques at the same time.
Feel bettter when I stay in shape.
