I have a wonderful life, two beautiful children ages 23 and 26 and a grandson aged 6 years old for whom I'm active in their lives and actively pursue interests but at the end of the day I'd love to see the spark in the eyes of a man that is equally active and adores me as I adore him and get lost in conversation about the days events or thoughts and dreams that cross our minds. Believe it or not I love to fix things - this I owe to my dad giving me my first tool box some 40 years ago. I'm retired now from a very satisfying career as a patent protection litigation paralegal - retired, but not tired - I now wonder how I could've ever had the time to work! I love to hike, garden, be anywhere in nature, watch the SF Giants play, and, well, be anywhere with my honey. I volunteer my time at the Humane Society, cook meals occasionally for the homeless and am working on getting my dog certified as a compassionate visitor at senior centers and hospitals. I love to work on projects together whether it's a puzzle, a backyard project or training to climb Kilimanjaro! People tell me I have an optimistic nature, am caring and compassionate, am passionately curious and that I have an adventuresome spirit - actually on that last point they say I'm an adrenaline junkie. . . well it is true that I sometimes enjoy getting out of my comfort zone. At the same time, I'm a hopeless romantic who loves kind words whispered in my ear, holding hands, long passionate kisses and who shines in the company of the man I love.
I'd like to meet someone who enjoys sharing his thoughts (and is emotionally available), who appreciates family (and can be comfortable around family), who is affectionate (and who seeks understanding in a relationship), who actively pursues his interests (and is open to me participating in his and to participating in mine), who is honest (and open to growing), who is communicative (intellectually and intimately) and who appreciates a certain independence. Most of all, someone who knows 1 + 1 = infinite possibilities.
I'd just like to add, some of my interests are camping, snow shoeing, vintage car shows, cooking together, gardening, the SF Giants, playing Scrabble together . . . to know me is to love life to its fullest. I'm not afraid to jump in with both feet; having been blessed with a great love for 28 years I'm now on a quest to tend the home fires of a committed relationship with my partner in love. I tend to look for the good in people and trust unless given a reason not to. I love surprises, last minute plans and family gatherings. I get fuzzy warm feelings when cooking in the kitchen so would love to find someone who shares this with me! My family is scattered across the globe so I'd love to share my love of travel with a special someone. For me, chemistry is the spice of life and an intimate connection grows from a deep friendship; sprinkle it with generous hugs, kisses, and hand-holding and you have a recipe for love! Could it be that we have a spark to ignite? Inquire within if you are curious to know more! I invite you to send me an email.
