Ultimately, I would like to find a mate to spend the rest of my life with. But getting there involves a process. I believe that the only way to really determine if even a small spark of interest/chemistry exists is to meet in person. Initially I am simply interested in having someone to do things with and go places with.I was out of the "dating scene" for nearly three decades and have been divorced three years now. I'd hope to find someone who enjoys doing a variety of things and learning new ones (the bucket list is getting bigger and I'm not getting any younger). There really aren't many things I don't enjoy doing or won't consider trying with the right company. I have always enjoyed sports and physical activity - running, working out, basketball, martial arts, softball, pool, bowling, volleyball, swimming...you name it. I try to surround myself with positive, active, spiritual people and tend to gravitate away from negative, critical, controlling, manipulative, deceitful, self-absorbed and arrogant types. Life's experiences have helped me to become more accepting of and empathetic toward others than most. I'm generally pretty laid-back, but definitely not lazy or inactive. I would love to be able to just travel the world at will. I spent a summer backpacking through Europe many years ago when life was simpler and loved it! I also like to read during down time. I try experimental cooking on occasion and it sometimes turns out ok! I enjoy anything that challenges me physically or mentally. There are so many things yet that I would like to learn and experience yet in life and would like to find someone to do them with. Every day is a gift and I want to make the most of them. I value a woman who is conscious of her health and fitness. Being a Christian believer would be important, or at least a willingness to explore it with an open mind and a searching heart. Qualities I value include loving, kind, caring, of good humor , patient, selfless, humble, affectionate, loyal, honest, real, imperfect and forgiving.
