Date men and women from United States / Alaska, 77 year old

Date a soulmate from Alaska, United States. I am a retired elementary teacher. I have a fairly comfortable retirement. I'm not as physically active as I used to be, and it bugs me. I play a lot of bridge, volunteer, am involved in my church and am pres. of my P.E.O. chapter. I love to fish. I like to read and watch TV. I enjoy going out to eat and having a good time. I can slow dance. I used to ride horses, bowl, golf and bicycle. Don't know if I still could or not. I've been widowed over tweny years--no children, but family is very important to me, as mine is relatively small. I have one sister, her two children and five grandchildren, two cousins and everybody's families. We stay in close touch and try to see each other at least once a year. I also have a cat, Aurora(Rory), to which I am very attached.
He must be able and willing to see beyond imperfections to the core. He needs to be kind, considerate and respectful, and take charge without being a controller. A real friend first. Time will tell beyond that.
I have very eclectic tastes in foods, restaurants, movies, music, sports, etc. I don't like smut, swearing, rude jokes and stuff like that.
