I love Sunday AM's, Sunday paper, good freshly ground coffee and lots of time to enjoy both. I need music in my life no limits on type. Have three children all out on their own. Recently retired from a very successful career hope to have an equally successful retirement. I love being spontaneous yet enjoy planning out a longer trip as well. Enjoy travel have done quite a bit, appreciate learning about a variety of cultures. I am interested in finding someone that can be comfortable in both conversation and quiet time. I think it is very romantic when you reach a point in a relationship where the "quiet" is not uncomfortable. I also find holding hands very romantic. I guess I appreciate the simpler things. I need romance in my life, I need to feel wanted and appreciated and later loved. Am all about giving the same to my partner. Projects around the house are always fun, gardening, hobbies, and simply enjoying a partner, theater, movies, fine dinning or a hole in the wall cafe that has great food, plays, quiet time at home with some good wine and a nice fire, rainy days cuddling on the couch reading a good book. I am not about drama or game playing I would expect the same from my partner. I just want a relationship that we can both grow into and feel truly lucky that we have found one another. One more requirement is a partner who does not feel a sexual relationship is insignificant I consider it a very important, ejoyable and necessary part of a loving relationship.
First Date....now there is a good question. I am not concerned whether it is a nice resturant, coffee shop, a drink in a longue. I also like to talk on the phone with a person for a couple of times prior to meeting. I am not concerned with chatting, E-Mailing ,Etc ,Etc for 150 times prior to meeting. I honestly believe in chemistry and for me to know whether or not we have chemistry we must see one another in person.
