Newly semi retired, financially independent and loving life. Looking to meet new people and always ready to have fun. Ultimately, looking to find that special connection. Like a fine wine, I seem to be getting better w/ age and don't take myself too seriously (also modest). I've listed my age as 54 for search purposes, but chronologically, I'm 59. Most people don't believe my age until I tell them. I don't look my age and only act it when I have to. Modestly bragging, I'm in better shape than most 35 year old's, have a lot more life experience and know how to treat a woman. My immediate family is small but we are very close. The mantras, "don't sweat the small stuff" and "treat others as you wish to be treated" are how I try to live my life. Also, I respect people who say what they mean, mean what they say and aren't mean saying it. The current object of my affection is "Cody", a gorgeous 75 lb, 1 year old Chocolate Lab pup who thinks he's a lap dog. I'm an avid fan of all sports w/ season tickets to the NY Rangers. You can find me walking my dog or relaxing on the beach in summer and in the mountains skiing in winter. The mountains and beaches are my oasis. Skiing is my greatest passion and this season looks to be very promising. I enjoy the sophistication and ambiance of the City, but prefer the quality of life offered in the burbs. A healthy lifestyle is practiced, which includes working out regularly, eating healthy (most of the time) and taking pride in my appearance. I possess a wicked sense of humor and that will keep you laughing and smiling. Recently, I've turned a hobby into a business venture.
I'm not looking for a pen pal relationship. Texting and emailing back and forth are very impersonal and OK only for initial communication. Current online dating etiquette is no more than 5 emails before phone time. If I don't respond to your email, please don't take it personally. It just means that we aren't a good match. Best of luck to all in your searches.
Meet for coffee or an adult beverage and see where it goes from there. Hopefully, there's a connection, drinks turn into dinner and plans are made for our next date.
