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 most of my time in Illinois visiting parents, family, and friends, planning a move back, perhaps to a nice lake town.
