I am average-looking, health conscious, physically fit and masculine. Very private, casual, quiet, confident, affectionate and adventurously open-minded. I have recently retired and I'm enjoying it totally, but I still find myself wanting to work and stay busy. I will return to college later this year for personal growth. I have accomplished all other personal goals. I have no religious affiliations and do not hold any anymosity toward those who do. I love to read and self-study (nonfiction/history/electronics) as well as work out at the gym. I love fishing, gardening and fixing things.
I like dating that is somewhat intimate, like movies, dinner, walks, etc. - that doesnt involve a large group of people. I'm terrible at cooking, but slowly learning. I apologize about not having a picture, but I can easily explain the omission. I'm emotionally literate and willing to take risks toward acheiving that special relationship with that special woman.
A meeting over coffee in a bookstore or getting together for a light workout or walk would be ideal first dates for me, although I have been known to compromise and mutually agree to alter plans slightly when I feel the spark of chemistry.
