A little about me...
I am retired, financially independent, physically active. I like to read, hike, go out to dinner, movies, the theatre, the beach, the mountains, and travel internationally. I love my grandkids, I work out with a trainer twice a week, I'm a big fan of AIS (Active Isolated Stretching), I play a lot of tennis. I love to dance.
I like to hold hands when I'm walking with someone special. I like to walk on the beach, stroll through a city, hike in the mountains, walk for exercise over the Ravenal bridge or along the greenway. I like reading with someone so we can talk about the book. I'm willing to compromise on the kind of movies we go to. I like popcorn and a DVD. I like a glass of wine with dinner. My family is important. I like to visit and I like my grandchildren to come for one on one time at my house or to go with me somewhere special. I like to watch my grandson play baseball, go to my granddaughter's concerts and another one's ballet recital. I try to be there for special times. I have friends who mean a lot to me.
About the one I'm looking for...
I'm looking for someone to have fun with. Short term-long term, whatever happens. Everything is more fun if you share it. I would like a man who is emotionally available, who isn't "hung up" on an ex or someone else. Who wants a relationship more than he needs one. Who is physically active--this is very important to me. Who can laugh at just about anything, especially himself, because of the sheer joy of being alive. I like a man who appreciates good food whether it's a five star restaurant, a diner, or home cooked. A man who's patient with children, slow to anger, clear about his needs, always glad to see me. Traveling together would be nice once we get to know each other. While kids can be a complicating factor, I like a big family and family get togethers. Not too sure I would like live-in kids. I like a man who can be assertive without being a bully. Knows his mind and isn't afraid to change it. I would like a man comfortable with his looks and likes mine----imperfections and all.
I'd just like to add...
My reading taste is eclectic but when I'm on an airplane I like something I don't have to think too hard about---I love my kindle for traveling. And I really like to travel. I like all kinds of food---from asian to whatever starts with z. Family is important. I couldn't have a relationship with someone who hated my kids and grandkids. I would like someone to play mixed doubles with but it's not a deal breaker. I do need someone who is physically active. (Have I mentioned this before?) I'm a care taker, I just really like loving someone. I don't abandon my friends, I'm loyal and I try to be available when they need me.
