Hi and thanks for taking time to read my profile. I am now a happy resident of the bay area but have lived most of my life in Southern Indiana with a few years farther north, near Madison, WI. I love this area and enjoy exploring on the week-ends. I have two intelligent and beautiful daughters who are grown, so I now have some time for me and for building a relationship with someone special. I enjoy exploring new places, trying new foods (and drink) or just relaxing on the beach with a good book. I am an honest and dependable,person who enjoys life. I would like to find someone special who is also looking to build an exciting, fulfilling and lasting relationship. I believe some of our best years are just ahead and hope to find that special person to share these years and life's adventures.
I enjoy listening to music, watching movies, going to festivals, traveling, walking, reading or just relaxing at home. I try to exercise regularly and eat healthy. Family is very important to me and I would expect my partner to feel the same way. I do not currently attend a church but am a spiritual person who believes that everyone is special and their influence in this world makes a difference, whether it is for positive or negative.
Some of my favorite music is Classic Rock (you know the good stuff from the 60s and 70s), Maroon 5, Shinedown, even some Blues and Jazz. I really enjoy most music including country and gospel.
I love to read and will read a wide range of material from biography, science fiction, motivational (self-improvement), mystery and Stephen King (horror).
I enjoy a wide range of movies as well, from the Transformers to Apollo 13. (I really like Tom Hanks and Ron Howard flicks.) Of course I also saw all the Harry Potter movies because my daughter is a big fan.
I also like to travel and try new things. Recent vacations included zip-lining, white water rafting, and riding ATVs on the beach.
I'm also becoming a big fan of the 49ers and SF Giants!
I am looking for a man who is kind, intelligent and has a wonderful sense of humor. I am not looking for "Mr. Perfect" as I am certainly not perfect either but I am looking for someone who may be interested in building a lasting relationship that only gets better as time goes on. I enjoy giving and receiving affection including, holding hands, kissing, hugs and just those small little things that make such a difference on a day to day basis to keep a relationship growing stronger.
