My reason for being on this site is to develope a friendship that will lead to a serious relationship possibly leading to marriage. A partner would have the same goal in mind. I'm retired. I cared for both parents in their home until their passing and want to resume a full life now. Looking for a lady to share my home and life on a quiet cul-de-sac in a good neighborhood just Northeast of Love Field Airport (Brook Hollow). Wanting to share a healthy diet and fitness. I maintain 17 different flowering plant species and a small vegetable garden mostly Okra. Am a Cowboy fan and watch mostly Public Broadcasting on TV. I worked as a baker for 17 years, finishing that career when Neiman Marcus closed their central bakery. Next I earned 2 A.A.S. degrees in electronics and computers and worked 12 years in that career. The last 6 years were spent in sales/customer service. The first year of retirement was spent on upgrading my home for energy efficiency. Next I focused on my health. I exercise often (Gold's Gym) and expect my potential match to be at least health and fitness aware. I have cooked and eaten a healthy diet for a long time. I would like my partner to be a knowledgeable person with personal qualities such as honesty and cooperation. I don't have children but get along well with them. The people I tend to be attracted to are organized, humorous and have a natural curiousity. I know there's chemistry between my date and me if we can make frequent eye contact. Things I want to do in the future include taking a vacation to the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C. (possibly using a Segway Transporter), driving up the Pacific Costal Highway taking a swim in the Pacific Ocean along the way to Seattle, and to go on another Caribbean cruise.
