A little about me...
I am a happy and contented person by nature, don't do drama, enjoy good conversations, being active and consider the glass half full.
I have three grown amazing daughters that I am very close to; two live on the west coast and one in Reston, VA. Two are married, and one is still on her own. The men they have chosen are wonderful guys so a mother could not be happier with that! I visit those locations often and Florida where family lives.
I enjoy being outside and being active. You might find me walking, kayaking, sailing, boating, biking in the summer and going to the gym on my way home from work sevetal times a week and walking in the winter. That is not to say I am a fanatic about being on the move as I certainly enjoy down time...reading a book, watching a movie or TV. I just stay active to stay healthy. I enjoy non fiction but,I don't always have a book going. Listen to NPR on my drive to and from work sometimes but not always. I have a bit of an artistic side and have taken art classes, dance classes and a cooking class in the past and every winter I am looking for another project. Enjoy a museum, historical site, new places and concerts.
About the one I'm looking for...
I really think that it is important to have some shared interests and activities but certainly not all. I would be most interested in someone that is interested in staying healthy and enjoys the outdoors. Family would be important to you. You are happy with yourself and where you are in life at this time and have a zest for what lies ahead. You have honesty and integrity and friends would describe you with those qualities. You are kind and thoughtful of others. All the better if you are down to earth. Even better if you have a good sense of humor and a quick wit would be a bonus! We would both have to be good communicators since I am not a mind reader and guess you are not either.
I'd just like to add...
I am not opposed to drinking and enjoy a beer/wine or two but I would not do well with a heavy drinker. I hope to retire in a couple of years and hope that you have thought in those terms and planned for that as well. Luckily, I have a job that allows for summers off and yearly vacation weeks. I really at some point would like to live in warmer climates for at least several months out of the year. The best would be to maintain my house in the northeast while doing that.
