I am mostly easy going, love to travel to new places, love to learn new things and apply them in my life. I love a good mystery - book or movie. I have been known to camp, hike, bird watch, and other outdoor activities. I like to fish, but haven't been in quite a while. Have not been hunting, but am willing to give it a try, as long as the weapon is a camera. I used to ski, but after an injury, I'm a little skiddish, so I probably wouldn't go higher than the bunny slopes, if at all. LOL I like all kinds of sports - but, would rather see them in person than on TV. I love intellectual conversation, even an occasional debate. I am somewhat conservative, but not enough to label me an "R", and not liberal enough to be a "D", so I guess I'm 'middle of the road'. I do my research, and vote my conscience. My color code is tied between blue and white, and my love language is 'acts of service'. I've learned as I've gotten older, that perfection is not attainable - so, I'm not looking for someone perfect - just someone perfect for me. :-)
I do like a good 'adventure', whether it be something as easy as trying a new food - or as intricate as backpacking across Europe. Combine the two, and we've got real fun! I've been to a few places, but there is still so many things I'd like to do, and finding the right partner to share the experiences would be icing on the cake!
I'm looking for a kind man, who is thoughtful, considerate, sincere, loving and genuine. I'm looking for the kind of chemistry that when two people have an understanding of, and attraction to each other that goes beyond always needing words to express. I'm not looking for an exact copy of myself - but, someone who complements my qualities, understands my needs, (and vice versa), and the kind of affection to be able to support each other in rough times. Trust, loyalty, genuine friendship, open communication, optimism, respect, compassion.....these things are important, too. I can't compromise on those. Oh, and he needs to have a good sense of humor, handy with tools, likes to cook (or at least share in preparation of meals), knows what he wants, and interested in self-improvement in some way. LOL - does this guy even exist?
I am retired from my first career, and I am considering taking a temporary overseas job, so I need to find someone who is up for that adventure! Or, maybe just someone who has the time and resources available to grab a Eurorail pass and go on an adventure....or, perhaps the bullet train across Japan. What's on your bucket list? Perhaps we can do these things and make memories together? Do you watch House Hunters International on HGTV? Does it give you the travel bug? If so, there's something we have in common!
I look forward to hearing from you!
