Always fun, fit, confident, compassionate, caring, successful, empathetic, fiscally responsible, spontaneous, young at heart seeks same. I enjoy long walks with the dog on the beach or the woods, sunsets from a deck, live music, alternative rock, happy hours, grilling, watching a good game, movies, road trips, visiting with family and friends. Handy around the house, cook a lot, work on my cars, do taxes, and groom my dog. The oldest of 5 with three younger sisters, I was born and raised in the NW Chicago Suburbs, attended Marquette, U Wis Parkside, and SIU, and have lived in Colorado for 33 years being married for 30. I spent 25 years in the mortgage business and I was a caregiver to my wife with brain cancer for over three years and have taken a few off to travel and decide what I really want in my next relationship and career. I prefer the ocean, lakes, and woods to the city life but nice to be about an hour drive away. Spending the summer in Illinois visiting parents, family, and friends, planning a move back, perhaps to a nice lake town in southern Wisconsin.
