I have decided to jump in and try the dating scene again having been absent from it for some time. I have more laughter lines now but much of my profile remains the same.
I am a fun-loving person who loves people. I have friends of all ages and we often go out or socialize at each others' homes. I am genuinely interested in other people and try to see the best in everybody. I try and live by 'The Golden Rule'.
I love to paint water colours. I also try hard to keep fit by doing a variety of activities at different times of the year:aqua fit aerobics, down hill skiing, walking most days. A couple of years ago I went horse-riding, loved it, but it is harder and more expensive than I remember!! I am also currently practicing Yoga. Yoga is also harder than I remember!!!!
I love to keep busy and am involved in volunteering and tutoring children with learning needs. When friends ask me if I want to travel anywhere with them I quickly say 'yes' and have been lucky enough to travel to quite a few places!! Three years ago I went to Tanzania, my most amazing holiday. Two years ago I went on a river cruise from Amsterdam to Budapest and then Prague, my most luxurious holiday..Last year it was a painting holiday in Tuscany that took my fancy and this year another painting holiday to France. Looking forward to the next adventure after that. . .
I am retired from teaching, a career I absolutely loved. Now that I have some time I am hoping to expand my world and would love to meet new people to do that with. I am also interested in taking up/learning new activities. I would love to have a friendship that develops into a long term relationship. However, I would also really enjoy making new friends.
I would be happy to send a photo if requested.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
For a first date I would stick to something fairly low-key. I love to sit in a good cafe so perhaps that would be a good venue for a first meeting. After that, you never know.
