My life as a recent retiree gives me more opportunity to do the things I love. During a typical week I enjoy dancing, especially ballroom; going to movies with drama and meaning (think Meryl Streep), eating at cozy restaurants, and going to comedy clubs. I start off the day with a long walk, and end the day with reading spiritual books and inspirational articles. My weekly massage keeps me feeling relaxed so I tend to do a lot of laughing and bantering with people. Because giving of myself is important to me, I do volunteer work at a hospital. I look forward to being with a man who likes to volunteer when he has time; join me in some of my activities, and, allow me to join him in some of his activities. I picture us having a friendly game of Scrabble some evenings, or perhaps going to an interesting lecture or exercise class. We can socialize with each other's friends frequently, as well as the two of us spending relaxing evenings at home. Most likely we'll have "together" times and "separate" times each day. It's really fun to have good conversations on all kinds of topics, don't you think? I also visualize us spending occasional time with each other's families. The icing on the cake will be our vacations together. Do you like cruises as much as I do?
