I am an active person, who also likes to socialize. I do a lot of volunteering, especially at our local museum, and I enjoy meeting people. Likewise, I also enjoy my quiet time, such as working in my garden, or just having a glass of wine while listening to music, or reading. I enjoy going out to dinner, but I also enjoy BBQ's, or just being home and cooking with my significant other. I am close to my family and friends, and I would like someone who also enjoys spending some time with family and friends. I would like him to have a good sense of humor, which is very important to me, takes pride in his appearance, and practices a somewhat healthy lifestyle. I like to exercise to keep myself somewhat in shape, but am not a fanatic about it. I enjoy weekend getaways and traveling. I am retired, so my time is mostly my own. I like holding hands and showing my affection, and I hope that he does as well.
For my first date, I would like to go someplace quiet where we can talk and get to know each other. It doesn't necessarily have to be dinner. We could have a cup of coffee or a drink. What matters is that we get the opportunity to talk.
