Im self employed for most of my career. I like to stay motivated, politically and socially, always on the move concerning a happier and prosperous life. I stay abreast reading, can engage in any one of a number of topics, and I'm definitely not a wallflower.
Im looking to meet a lady with similar interests, has a healthy lifestyle, would like to be in a committed relationship, and enjoys occasional travels.
As far as getaways, My "canned ham" trailer, completely rebuilt, has all the comforts of home, hot running water, shower, stove and more, all make for a complete impromptu weekend! Im an occasional meat eater..so vegans, please understand. Winter is for skiing, and yes the knees and my stamina are still with me.
I am also a parent, I raised two children...and guessing you've done something similar.
Retirement is closer than we realize,..and then its off doing some traveling and time away..no more schedules!
First dates, aren't they almost like interviews...so what do we do? Better to say what we wouldn't do, as in someplace that stifles our conversation and privacy. A leisurely walk to enjoy the sights..your place or mine.
2nd date, A museum, an art exhibit, walk on the seashore, Mt Tams woods, Tilden park, Muir Woods...these all come to mind.
