I was married 22-years and have a grown up son that has moved now having two beautiful grand daughters and handsome grandson. I am comfortable sitting in front of the fireplace, watching TV, listening to music, reading a book, or working a project at home. I enjoy camping, being outdoors, and fishing, but also enjoy spending time in the city going to movies, plays, dining out, or going to the beach. Taking a drive up the coast is always great, especially sharing it with someone special. I am honest, have confidence in myself, polite, have a sense of humor, and am sensitive, known to cry on occasion. In addition, my age, weight and height are accurate and the picture is current. I would appreciate the same honesty. Now retired, my career included working corporate levels in companies directing several company functions, having always taking my responsibilities seriously and can be trusted. I am financially secure. I believe that I have a nice appearance, and have been told that I am very appealing to women – but that is in the eye of the beholder. Oh, did I mention that I am a chocoholic? I also enjoy taking the time with someone sharing the cooking and I do a pretty good job using the barbecue. I am a volunteer with a Community Emergency Response Team known as CERT. We are an extension of a fire department trained to assist as First Responders to disasters - natural and man-made.
I want a relationship that provides for mutual respect and love for each other. Someone that is romantic and desire to have a meaningful intimacy with each other. I want to find someone to share a relationship that enhances all of the wonderful aspects of life. When necessary to be serious, both persons have to respect the others opinion and feelings. I would like to be with that special person that if we should have a disagreement we can get past that and enjoying the intimacy of making up later at night.
I've learned to be more caring, understanding, compassionate, intimate, be a good listener, accept the other person for whom and what they are, and probably most of all, respect their feelings. Be able to provide a shoulder to cry on. I hope to always be learning from other people and relationships.
I am drawn to someone that is warm, smart, educated, secure, easy going, and has a sense of humor. I prefer to be with someone that is between approximately 5'0" to 5'9" with a nice figure and attractive with a nice appearance. I want a relationship providing mutual respect for each other, and understand each other's strengths and weaknesses with unconditional acceptance. I am looking for a compassionate and romantic person. It is important that I am with a person that has learned from past relationships to make their future ones even better.
On my first date I am looking to be with someone who is easy to speak to, share our experiences, staring into each other's eyes, and have some good laughs. The location could be anywhere where we both feel comfortable, from making time for coffee or a drink or go to a nice restaurant, especially if it is romantic to enhance the first time together. But just as well - we could spend our first moments together at a park, just kicking back and having a nice romantic picnic. What is important is just getting together and enjoying each others company, and hopefully having the chemistry towards each other wanting to have the "second" date. Also saying goodbye with a nice kiss hopefully will say it all about wanting to be together again.
