I've been widowed since 2003, raised my kids myself (and with help from family) since they were 10 and 12. They are now both in their 20's, college grads with good careers, but still living at home for the time being (what's up with that??? lol). Maybe I'll just move out and give them the house.
I have a pretty good job, but they have changed so many things around over the last year that they are making it increasingly difficult to want to be there. If I can, I may retire in 2016 and work part time closer to home so that I'll have more time to enjoy life. I'm ready for something else to occupy my days.
Music has been my hobby and avocation almost all my life. I play guitar and I've played Rock, R&B, Jazz and Country at one time or another. I suppose I'll try to stay involved in music one way or another, as long as it's fun and doesn't take up all my time.
I love walks and hikes... bike rides, too, although I don't really like the sitting part. In general I like the result of traveling (being at a destination) better than the traveling part itself, unless it involves spectacular vistas and/or scenery. There are plenty of places that I haven't been, but would like to. But regardless of how extensive my travels wind up being, one thing for sure is that I want to stay active as long as possible.
I am bound and determined to get to the point where I can honestly change my body type to "Average", and I am on my way!
Note: I am not a paid subscriber, so I can't see who has clicked "Yes" on Meet Me. If you want to meet, just send a message and say hi.
First date is really just an "introduction" to the person behind the email and profile... a time to talk, have some laughs over coffee or whatever. After that, both can decide whether there is enough interest to meet again.
