A little about me...
I am a straight forward kind of person with a good sense of humor. I am currently retired, but who knows if I will stay that way. I have a great circle of friends, some I've had since I was in grade school and cherish them. They brighten my life and bring me joy. My children and one grandchild are very important to me, and I love spending time with them. I am not perfect, but have been told that I look pretty good for my age ( I hope that was a compliment.) I have also come to a stage in life where I don't need more "stuff", just want to enjoy a quiet life with someone who enjoys the same things I do. I love being around the water and boating when I get the chance. Have golfed and would like to again, though I'm not very good at it. But really, people, it's just a game, not life or death. Am able to laugh at myself, and don't mind if you do it if it's in fun. I love to cook for a crowd and volunteer when I can.
About the one I'm looking for...
I don't have a long list of wants in a partner. I am more interested in your personality and our compatibility. I am interested in someone who would like to share the daily, sometimes humdrum things that make a life. Cooking together, poking around in antique shops or out of the way places, or spending time with friends and family. I do like to travel, and have been to Europe a couple of times. My one burning desire is to go to Ireland and then I will be content.I also love road trips,and have visited almost all of the states, including Alaska and Hawaii. Have lived on the East Coast and Florida, but most of my life has been spent in the Pacific NW. I want a partner, not a leader. I want someone to share the rest of my life with, whatever that brings. I am a generally happy and positive person and would like the same in a partner. If all your past baggage is packed away, and you are finished with drama in your life, then we could be compatible. At this point in my life, I am not interested in drama. I realize every day just how lucky I am.
