Happily retired businessman living a comfortable, modest lifestyle between Palm Springs and south Orange County. I'm ready to find a partner with whom to walk the rest of this path. To share the good and loving things we each bring from our past and to explore, collect and nurture treasured moments of our future together. I like dogs and tolerate cats. Indoors I will cook with you, play board games, dance in the kitchen, spend time on the net, cuddle on the couch and watch a movie. Outdoors we’ll walk on the beach, stay fit, perhaps golf, go treasure hunting at thrift shops, take a top-down ride to nowhere or a weekend up north to somewhere. We’ll enjoy live theater, movies (especially Tarantino films), 20th century art and antiques, oldies (doo wop is my specialty). I will not go to opera but will enjoy a musical and I will sing to you (I'm pretty good). I enjoy creative writing. I journal and write poetry. I get my input from CNBC, CNN, Huff Post news bytes seemingly from everywhere , . My quiet demeanor belies my dry, sometimes sarcastic, wit and my New York accent, after 40 years, lies just beneath the surface, I am gentle and I love women. You guys are simply amazing creatures. I still believe in chivalry and romance and commitment to a monogamous relationship. I am very physical and holding hands just seems natural to me. I live a healthy lifestyle and maintain good dietary disciplines; I need someone to share that with me without being obsessed about it. I do reward myself with dark chocolate and black licorice on occasion so I also need a forgiving partner. I had a great sales and management career that allowed me to travel the US and most of the far east. I have owned several small businesses. I’m articulate, intelligent, funny, and try to approach each day with appreciation for everyone and everything in it. I have a small local family includes 2 granddaughters and I take care of my mom’s affairs.. I have an extended family on the east.coast, where I grew up.
My best physical match is attractive, petite, slim and keeps fit. She likes pda’s and an affectionate guy. Physical attraction ranks high on her value scale as does intimacy in a relationship. She is intelligent, street smart, playful and can converse on a broad range of current topics and issues. She can socialize comfortably in any environment but prefers private time together more than anything else. Not much into spectator sports. She has the time to invest in building a friendship and a relationship. She appreciates (my) humor and can make me laugh as well. Most importantly I look for a base of common interests on which we build; we live similar socio-economic lifestyles and we see a possible shared future vision. If you cook or play golf that’s a plus; if you do both - gold star !
