Hope is the thing with feathers,
that perches in the soul, and
sings the tune without words,
and never stops at all. ~ E.Dickenson
I am planning to retire in Victoria so if that is something we could do together, read on.
You see the "Wow!" moments in everyday life. You're young in spirit, emotionally available, secure, and have some post-secondary education, knowing that a graduate degree doesn't mean that you graduated from high school ;) You're fit or average, and lead a balanced life. You have grown children which makes it easy for us to relate and to blend our lives with those who are important to each of us. I'm seeking someone who enjoys a variety of fun pursuits, and not just looking to fit me into his own lifestyle but to create something new together, harmonizing our similarities and our differences. I've indicated 'Long Term' but since we have to start somewhere this includes hanging out, friendship, dating, and eventually intimate and loving encounters. If your primary agenda is sex before getting to know each other, you're probably not the gentleman I seek...
I've lived some of my 'bucket list' while blessed with good health. You'll find me youthful, good-natured, educated in my passion, environmental, intellectual, spiritual, and sensuous. I love my work, spending time with friends and family, and I enjoy my own home. My daughters support this search for someone equally grounded and romantic. I have a positive outlook despite life's adversities, but am no 'Pollyanna'. I choose this glass to reflect as half-full! In my yearbook, my grade 9 French teacher wrote, "Pour la jeune femme avec une joie de vivre". Happiness is a choice. Let's choose to walk together, co-creating the best that each of us can be!
How about strolling the antique shops, a museum or gallery visit, taking-in live music, a walk/run along the river, drive/hike in the country, a picnic, a trip to the zoo, kayaking, snowshoeing, movies/films, a great dining experience, live theatre, the symphony, cuddling by a fire at the end of the day, wit and word-play, laughing, and kissing... You're open, and know that love thrives with communication and courage (cœur = French, heart) and have faith that it will find a way. You have integrity, honesty, and compassion for people as well as for animals. You're interested in the differences between talk and conversation, cabernet and chardonnay, Freud and Jung, jokes and humour, silk and satin, us...
I welcome your 'Hello', and please have recent photos. I'll read your message/profile and when I see our potential, I'll be in touch. If you'd really like to meet me, send a message as I truly appreciate direct communication. Best wishes fishing.
"Let us awaken to the knowledge that the essence of our being is Love, and as such, we are the light of the world." ~ Gerald G. Jampolsky, Love Is Letting Go of Fear

Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
It doesn't matter 'what' or 'where' that determines how well our first meeting turns out, but that we have fun. And if it's mutual, who knows, it may lead to a real first date... then a second... a third...
