I'm a very easy going guy who likes to do just about anything, especially if I’m outdoors, whether hiking, biking or on the water.
I have a few hobbies, but enjoy photography, (such as landscapes, sunsets, nature...), the most. When the weather is good and I have a free weekend, I like taking trips to some of the local State Parks in the Midwest. Such as Starved Rock, Pikes Peak, Maquoketa Caves… I enjoy hiking their trails and snapping some photos. I do like to venture farther than that from time to time. Places like Mexico for an all-inclusive, hiking the North Shore of Lake Superior or sailing around the British Virgin Islands.
I love good food and enjoy a nice bottle of wine. I like going to concerts, day trips, boating, wine tasting events, golfing, cooking... really just about anything! I’m very honest, trustworthy and a dependable person with a great job. I have a great sense of humor, or so I'm told, and love to laugh. I also enjoy entertaining at home, cooking for friends and family or watching a movie. This past holiday I cooked a Thanksgiving dinner for 30 people, I do know my way around a kitchen!
I’m recently retired from Exelon and financially secure, looking for someone who likes the outdoors and also enjoys entertaining at home. Someone that would take pleasure in seeing a sunset on the beach, traveling to new places and enjoying what life has to offer together! Someone who is easy going, caring and loyal. A down-to-earth girl you might say!
First date, hmmm… I assume we’ve already talked a couple of times on the phone and liked what we each heard so… if this were truly a first date and not just a first “meeting” then a nice quite dinner somewhere would be nice, preferable by candle light. If we couldn’t find a place then I could cook for you.
