I'm considered to be friendly, easy going and laid back. I am content with life. I also feel that it is important to enjoy life because it's precious and too short to let slip away. I have always worked hard, I strive to be successful in whatever I do. I like to have a good time, very open to trying new things (at least once). I am just as comfortable attending a broadway play as going camping. I like to go to concerts, walk on the beach, play tennis or golf, watch a good movie, read, hike or bike, kayak a river, travel, go out for dinner or cook at home, or cuddle on the couch. I love to coach youth sports, play sports, and officiate games. Personally speaking, I am not overweight but I am not skinny. I am not a genius but I am intelligent. (I hope as smart as a 5th grader.) I am not rich but I do alright. I am a very positive, upbeat, happy person (all of the time) and that is what I want in my partner. Oh...I am in the process of writing my first novel.
As you know, I am divorced, three years ago. I'm semi-retired, formally in education-social services-business, a father and grandfather, an Army veteran, Boy Scout leader, youth coach, active in various volunteer activities, and so on. Bascially I'm just an average guy.

I am looking for a positive and upbeat lady who is desiring a sincere relationship; companionship, love, and affection. It is important that she is content with who she is and life. It is extremely important for us to just be ourselves, enjoy life and each other. I really don't care if you smoke, drink, what political party you are a member of or your religious preference or how much you have or have not. I don't care if we share all the same interests. I'm concerned about the person and if we enjoy being with each other, nothing else matters. I am not looking for a carbon copy of myself but someone who has the same basic values, outlook on life, and desires a loving relationship.
If a difference in age or some distance between us, is a problem, then we are not on the same page. I don't feel that either should be a factor in determining whether we can have a relationship. (In regards to distance, I am a little old fashioned in some ways and feel that the man should travel to the lady.)
A cup of coffee, dish of ice cream, walk on the beach, stroll in the park, glass of wine, lunch, just spending some time together to get to know each other.
