My baggage (at least the piece I didn't lose on my last trip) is fairly light yet colorful. I'm reasonably low-maintenance, in my humble opinion!
Possible deal breakers? I am a libertarian, financially conservative, an extremely early riser, a diehard (nearly lifelong) SF Giants and Niners fan and I have far more energy than most my age. Other than that, I'm flexible/changeable!
What floats my boat? The aforementioned Giants and Niners, my badly-behaved black cat, comfort food, swimming and bicycling, great novels, extreme discounts, CNBC in the morning, early Spring and late Fall, Clapton, the Sunday newspaper, Keurig, smiles of strangers, warm/crusty sourdough, my sisters, Oregon Coast, crochet, the Eagles, growing roses and tomatoes, cruising to anywhere/nowhere, Yosemite, firm handshakes and a hearty belly laugh.
What would someone who seemingly has it all (ha!) want in a partner? Common sense, financial independence, fully-loaded tool belt, sparkling eyes, no fear of the concept of "partnership", intelligence, honesty, warmth, yada, yada, etc.
I'm working on my next chapter. Wanna be part of the adventure or just another reader?
A lesson I've learned and one I need to always remember--a great quote by Mark Twain, and a source of guidance for all of us seeking a great partner: “Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option." Been there?
