I am a retired electrician with plenty of spare time. I own my own home and do all the maintenance myself. Most days, I spend in my garage working on and restoring classic cars. I have a small (3) car collection including a '61 Corvette. I have had a lifelong love of classic cars of all types. In my younger days, I played baseball, softball, hockey, golf, badminton and tennis. I also enjoyed cross country skiing and downhill skiing, I still enjoy hiking, biking and walking. I have a road bike and a mountain bike that I use throughout the summer months. I like to watch Canada compete for World Championships and Gold Medals in almost any sport including hockey, curling, tennis and the Olympics. My taste in music leans to rock-n-roll and good blues. I am a "foodie". I enjoy cooking and collecting cook books. I like movies, but not those from the Hollywood of today. I prefer British and foreign films. I am an art lover and have a decent collection of paintings by local artists. I like visiting art galleries and have been to some of the great ones in Canada, USA, Britain and Europe. I like doing road trips and going to car shows.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
First and second date ideas: Lets go for a walk, go for a drink on a patio (when the rain stops, lol) and get to know each other.
Third date idea: If you like country drives, a picnic lunch or lunch on a patio, antique shopping,......I will even stop at a garage sale for you, lol, and then back for a gourmet meal, then spend the evening under the stars while enjoying a bonfire. I can't wait for the longer days, warmer air and summer nights.
What I am looking for:
- A woman that loves receiving flowers for no reason and enjoys a man that will cook up a storm with a glass of wine, while listening to good music.
- An Independent woman, who doesn't need a man daily, but enjoys spending quality time embracing what life has to offer, on your spare time. You have your own interests, as I do, which will allow us time apart as well, but we will both enjoy planning fun and interesting adventures together.
- You are confident from accomplished goals,and have new interesting ideas in the pot.
- I like an affectionate woman, who initiates as much as I do,.....with a woman who is compatible, I believe in getting to know you as a friend first. I have respect and patience, I am not in a rush. Lets just relax and have fun getting to know each other.
- You don't mind a man that will assist you in your time of need, I will do my best to resolve it.
If this sounds interesting to you, please don't hesitate to message me. I will answer every message and do my best to answer any questions you may have.
Thank you for reviewing my profile.
Good Luck to you all.
