I am currently a 66 year old "unclaimed treasure" who has a full and fun life on my own, but prefers having a fun, humorous, bright, articulate, energetic man in my life as well. I CANNOT RESPOND TO "WANT TO MEET ME" OR "FAVORITES", SO PLEASE DROP ME A NOTE IF YOU'RE INTERESTED.
I like to describe myself as well balanced in most areas, that is, I like to go and do, but also enjoy staying at home with a companion or by myself. My interests are varied and I enjoy anything from physical activities such as swimming, tennis, hiking, to movies, social gatherings, traveling (local and abroad) reading, dinner parties, concerts, wineries, reading, gardening, and any other projects that I find interesting and fun! I am drawn to tropical climates and anything by the coast.
I am a social worker at heart (my career as well for over 30 years) and love to verbally interact with people and enjoy problem solving of all kinds when necessary. I retired early from the county and have had to "re-create" myself and pursue other passions in life such as smoking cessation facilitator, board member and volunteer I live in a beautiful and safe environment and have 2 independent cats! They adopted me over 17 years ago and we all get along very well.
I would prefer meeting someone local, but am not opposed to long distance as well. I have been involved in long distant relationships and since I am retired, it wasn't that big of a problem. Have RAV will travel! I believe that compromise is key to any successful relationship!
Thanks for reading my profile. I hope something that I've said has interested you!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
One of my best first dates I ever had (after e-mailing and talking on the phone) was a lovely dinner in an outside courtyard in a local restaurant in Modesto. It was a warm, balmy evening with a lovely ambiance and music playing in the background. We had a 3 hour dinner with lots of good conversation, food, wine and laughter. It was a great way to get to know someone and a wonderful introduction.
