Well, here it goes: As you can see from my pics, I look young for my age (it runs in the family). I certainly don't feel like I'm 49 - more like 35! I have LOTS OF ENERGY, and enjoy life. I'm an extremely loyal person, maybe to a fault. I'm easy-going and love to laugh. I think laughter, and happiness, can cure a lot of problems. I'm a good listener (God gave us two ears and one mouth - we should listen twice as much as we talk!), but I'm not affraid to speak my mind. I love my job (I've been a pilot for 30 years - best office view ANYWHERE! ), but family ALWAYS comes first.
I feel it's important to share your life with someone who will appreciate the time that you spend together, and will contribute in their own unique way and not just "tag along." Without sounding cliched, I'm looking for my best friend. I'm looking for a woman who keeps herself fit and healthy, and enjoys life. I'm looking for a woman that's comfortable with herself no matter what she's doing. A woman that likes to travel (I love to do cruises), or do a staycation (lots of great places to go right here in Florida).
I spent 8 years in the Navy, and I have a strong sense of loyalty and teamwork, as well as adaptability. I say what I mean, and do what I say. I stand by my principles, but I'm not narrow-minded. I was raised in the midwest (in the suburbs of Chicago), so I consider my principles to be very grounded.
My music tastes can be described as eclectic: I can enjoy Elvis, 50s & 60s music, old funk, and jazz, as much as I enjoy 3 Doors Down, Rush or Third Day. I like to dance, and always enjoy myself when I do.
I love to play golf. I fish occasionally. I try to work out pretty regularly (minimum of 3 days a week but that depends on my flying schedule), and swim everyday (even when I'm on the road), as well as ride my mountain bike.
I'm sure I've missed some things, but there needs to be something to talk about on the first date - after I've heard all about you!
