A little about me...
Here is the heart of my profile. I am mostly retired after raising a family & working multiple satisfying careers. My current lifestyle (not at all etched in stone) involves living during "the season" on the east coast of Florida; in kinder months I live in VT and enjoy friends & family and all New England has to offer. I do work p.t. yet look forward to full retirement soon. I love travel here & abroad, reading good books & mag articles, visits about my life & yours, NPR, movies, music, cards, pets, cooking & dining out, local & regional road trips, get-togethers with friends & family, and recreational sports (or I work out, & like that too). Meditation & yoga are 2 practices I've recently added into my routine. I have 4 g.children & adore all of them. I take pride in my appearance & enjoy wearing nice clothes found at bargain prices. I love to laugh & lots of things make me smile. I have often been pegged as "youthful" (though I had a hip replacement yrs ago - all that skiing!). I've dealt thoroughly with my past relationships, and appreciate that you have too, though exposure to our pasts can be compelling & just fine. (The rest of this section is wrapped up just below.)
About the one I'm looking for...
I value being in & around nature and appreciate beauty wherever it rises to meet me. I also value honesty, intimacy, & steadiness, and have not given up on my One Last Dream of finding a suitable partner to enjoy & love. (Though I have been well-loved I've not yet managed to find an enduring partner & pal, which I truly seek.) I appreciate a man who takes care of his own health, maintains healthy connections w/ family & friends, and can differentiate between a quirk & a deal breaker in all important relationships. I am drawn to individuals who demonstrate a balance between self-esteem & teachability, & hope to date a man who has this trait; I can offer you that, and relish the fun & challenging journey that partnering surely is. I'm in good health, dedicated, nice looking, & def have a sense of humor (do you?) - and sincerely seek to share all of me with one of you . . . 1 day at a time.
I'd just like to add...
I can sum it up by saying that I seek inspiration, closeness, & common ground with one special man. (Yes, I know we all deserve & need our own space now & then.) Seasoned men & women are aware they'll not find perfection in another man or woman, but I'd love to find a man I could respect & treasure & trust - and shower with affection. This is my second time around on this site & my profile is current. I'm willing to remain "out there" and am aware that there are some great & interesting men members, also searching. I am low maintenance, can pay for lunch or let you, and would rather be happy than right (even when I am!). I love New England and consider all of it my backyard; therefore I'm at ease traveling for a meeting or date if it makes sense. I love great restaurants, the performing arts & good movies, walks, gabbing over java, & "being near." Those things make good dates, yes? Maybe we'll be lucky. :-) Good luck to us both.

My Top Interests:
I'm a "regular" with yoga, swimming, biking, walking. They are a joy & keep me moving forward.
Nature and Outdoors
A beautiful natural environment has been my venue since I was born - the coast of Maine, Green Mtns of VT, foothills of the ADK's, AZ's desert, & FL's Indian River.
I yearn to see places I have read & heard about. I work part-time/flex in retirement in order to travel to places near & far.
