A little about me...
I am happy and independent. I am a thinker and like philosophical talks. I'm a news junkie and keep up with what's going on in our world. I am active and enjoy favorite things like golf, hiking, and yoga, but I also like experiencing new things, since I am adventuresome. I am equally comfortable exploring in jeans or dancing at a black tie. I love pizza and beer, as well as a good steak and good wine. I like to laugh and have a ready smile for most everyone. I know myself well and am self confident; I am not needy. I would appreciate someone who is also comfortable with himself.
About the one I'm looking for...
Ideally, I would like to meet someone who is divorced or widowed so that we have a former marriage experience in common. I would like to spend time with someone who is a successful father and grandfather, so that we have those relationships in common. As a retired educator of 40 years, I would like to meet someone who values lifelong learning, as I do, and who is curious about the world, as I am. I'm well traveled, but there is still much of the world I want to see. So a man who likes to travel is a must for me. And I like all types of travel: more island vacations, golf in Scotland, Machu Pichu in South America, more cruises - especially the rivers of Europe, etc. I'm looking for a man who has a nice social circle of friends, for himself and to share with me occasionally. I have the same to offer him.
I'd just like to add...
I have not joined this service just to date, but rather to find someone with whom I feel a connection. I choose not to respond to "canned" comments sent to me (like flirts or winks) or profiles without a photo. These things don't tell me anything about the man, and they give the impression of laziness. I am interested in meeting men from the Colorado Springs area, or close to it. Finally, I have a 42 year old son who is very accomplished, and he has a wife who is equally so. They have two boys, my precious grandsons, who are six and eight. Most importantly, they are down to earth, caring, happy people. They live on the east coast and I visit them often, sometimes monthly. I travel life with little baggage, both literally and figuratively.
