I just retired from 30 year career in Northern California and moved to TN where I'm closer to family. Loving it! Love the kindness of the people and that common courtesy still exists here, the terrain and openness to nature, and of course the gas prices (lol)! I also fully appreciate the more conservative values of the south east. I'm excited about starting my next new chapter and looking for a compatible companion to help create the story line.
My career was in public safety so you'd find I'm pretty down to earth about things. I'm also stable financially and emotionally, somewhat independent, affectionate, optimistic, artistic, adventurous, passionate and caring. I love the outdoors, nature and animals - especially my dog (I've had at least one canine buddy for most of my adult life). I'm probably more of a home body, but love exploring new places. I like having stimulating conversations and learning from informed people. I have a strong belief in personal accountability and not much into drama so although politically moderate on most social issues, I lean conservative on fiscal and safety issues. That said, I also love a good laugh - not so much into slap-stick humor, but if you have a quick smart sarcastic humorous side - I might get hooked:)
Hoping to meet a principled, clean-cut man who's comfortable dressing up and dressing down, stable, honest, passionate, and playful! Someone with similar interests, but different as it's always fun to learn from each other. Life is good and I have a lot of opportunities open to me; I guess the only thing missing is that great guy who will help me co-author the next great chapter!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Something casual with no pressure; chemistry' is important and we can go from there.
