Hello There !! ... OK ... to start with, I retired in May, primarily to my home in Truckee ... I also got certified in Scuba (been wanting to for a long time) ... I've been divorced over 10yrs and we consider each other to be a good friend (we've known each other for 35 yrs ... wouldn't it be a shame if we didn't??) ... I'd really like to find my "last" romantic someone special ... yeah, I may be dreaming, but :) ... Now ... let's see ... I'm a pretty regular guy, I guess ... fit, fun, well-educated ... love snow and water sports ... just got scuba certified ... hiking, gardening, wood working ... exercise, reading or a good movie to relax ... love working in my garden ... it would be nice to meet someone athletic, smart and self-sufficient ... who's romantic and affectionate ... I have 2 daughters (25 and 26) that are the greatest things that ever happened to me ... being "Daddy" is the BEST !! ... let's see ... what else ?? ... I'm still kind of an adrenaline junkie ... love going FAST on or in just about anything ... oh, yeah ... I've always wanted to be a cowboy ... still do, actually ... not sure what that says about me, just thought I'd throw it out there :) ... I've got a "second home" in Walnut Creek, so I'd be interested in meeting someone from there, as well ... or somewhere in between ... am giving thought to another home in the Ft Myers or Clearwater area (have some good friends there) ...
Some things I believe to be true: "beautiful" on the outside is a gift, on the inside, an accomplishment ... kindness is a sign of STRENGTH, not weakness ... classy people don't advertise it ... living by the Golden Rule is the ONLY way to live ... integrity : you have it in EVERY situation, or you don't have it at all ... life is better when shared ... it's far better to be wanted than needed.
Please don't waste your time or mine if: 1) you're not financially independent, 2) aren't honest about your age, pictures or profile, 3) have drug, alcohol, or anger issues , or 4) are stark raving nuts ..
Thanks for reading and GOOD LUCK !!

First "date" ?? ... hmmm ...something that'll give us a chance to talk "normally" ... maybe grab a cuppa and take a walk ...
