My biggest hobby lately has been my home. I guess you could say I'm fixing it up, or nesting, for the future. Definitely for retirement some day but for time with someone special before then. It's coming along very nicely...come take a look.
I love to travel and sight-see. Local venues are fine but give me distant vistas also, places I've not seen before beyond the horizon. And I don't mind how I get there. Train, plane, cruise, car...it's all good. One of my ideal getaways has always been cruises. The ultimate in pampered vacations. I try to do at least one a year.
Because of all the traveling I do I spend a lot of time behind the camera. Weekends you can often find me out in the woods, walking the beach or searching for old barns and buildings to shoot pictures of. Very relaxing and rewarding when you get one of those "oooooohhhhh" shots. (You have to be there!)
When it comes down to the "where do I want to be" in a relationship it comes in steps. Yes, I want to find that someone special that will hold my heart as well as my hand forever but you can't put the roof on the building until you have the foundation built. (sheesh! I sound like a contractor) Chat leads to a date leads to many dates leads to .... well, you get the picture. I believe that a lasting relationship is developed through communication and similar interests. I'm big on openess and honesty. We've all be lied to and it destroys trust, relationships and love. So let's not go there. Once you've got my trust though I am faithful and true and will do everything to keep your trust, also.
Life is full of adventure, excitement, thrills and moments that are best shared with someone else. Let's share those moments and make them more than just memories. Let's make them memorable!
I am totally open. I will say that I appreciate a woman who can toss her ideas into the hat and doesn't just do the "let the man decide" choice. But beyond that....coffee, drinks, dinner, a walk on the beach, whatever feels right and comfortable.
