A little about me...
I am a proud graduate of public school and private college and have had the same job for 30 years. I always wanted to do something that was meaningful and helped people and, luckily, I found it. Thinking about retirement but not quite ready yet.
Love to travel and would like to do more of it with the right person. New Zealand is definitely on the list.
I think my friends would say that I am intelligent, creative, caring, dependable and interesting. I would add that I can be both introverted and extroverted, depending on the situation. Some of the things I love are: my kids, my granddaughter, my dog, cooking, farmers markets, garage sales & thrift stores, horses, parades, plants, taking pictures and well done movies.
Not too much of a sports fan but don't mind if you are..just not fanatical please. I will go bowling with you, though. Boogie boarding, too.
I have a pretty good sense of humor. The funniest thing I ever saw was Extreme Elimination on Spike TV.
About the one I'm looking for...
I believe in love at first sight or growing slowly into a relationship. It can happen either way. I do want someone in the rest of my life. I like variety..sometimes staying home, making a delicious meal and watching a movie..sometimes going out but not a fan of huge parties. I prefer small get-togethers or just you and me doing things together or just hanging out.
People write a lot about who they want to meet but it is really so hard to explain in words, isn't it. But I will say I like a warm smile, a sparkle in the eye, humor that doesn't hurt anyone, intelligence and imagination.
I'd just like to add...
I have learned that you don't need to spend a lot of money to have fun; that people are in your life for a reason; that you never stop growing; and even what may seem like a failure is a valuable lesson.

My Top Interests:
Religion and Spirituality
I think these two things are different. I am more spiritual than religious; I believe we create our own "world"; that life is to learn & grow & realize our best selves. Always looking for like-minded people.
Would love to find a compatible travel partner whether in a relationship with that person or not. Travel could be to a neighbor island, the Mainland or another country taking the time to explore and savor the experience.
Crafts and Creating
I have had spiritual experiences crafting and creating, believe it or not. When you get into the "space" where ideas and execution flow, it feels heavenly.
