Date people from United States. I retired from teaching six years ago and now work only part time in a tasting room, and have semi retired from my massage practice that paid my bills the last few years, allowing me time off to take vacations. I stay fairly fit, and love a physical challenge especially with a thrill attached to the activity (hang gliding, rafting, or just skiing or skating fast). I love water and snow sports. I lived in Lake Tahoe in 2011 for the ski season for three months to ski and shovel snow. I love road trips, and camp often, usually in Yosemite.
I would prefer respect, communication, and harmony at this stage of my life. No time for verbal assults. I practice 'The Golden Rule'. I am affectionate and enjoy that in a relationship. I hope you love to dance. I have forgotten more from my dance classes than I can remember! But I love Swing, Salsa, and Cha Cha. I am athletic, and outgoing and enjoy most outdoor and indoor sports. I try to be environmentally conscious, minimizing utility usage, recycling, and picking up trash. I am definitely political, and find Republicans scary and the 'real' threat to our democracy, willing to tank our economy to make Obama look bad. So Republicans, apoliticals, conservatives, and most middle of the roaders, I have to say 'sorry', but please don't waste our time, it will never work.
You are someone with a youthful outlook on life, who is physically able to enjoy it. You see a mountain and want to climb to it's top, not drive by. You see a body of water and want to float, raft, swim, snorkle, SCUBA, ski, on it, not drive by it. I look forward to planning an international vacation. With you?
You keep yourself active and watch your weight, so you can enjoy more wine and chocoate! On TV, I enjoy watching the Tour de France, Downhill skiing, the Lakers and 49ers, but, I prefer practicing. When I grow up, I want to be either a Laker, or a downhill racer! If you don't have a dream, then how could it come true?
Let's travel together, but have three cups of tea first.
Meet a woman from United States. I would like to meet a genuine person. Someone who is easy to talk with, "comfortable in their own skin" and can let down the barriers and share thoughts, feelings and ideas. I want that safe harbor in a relationship that you can truely say what you think with no fear of being judged, or critisized. I am looking for some who enjoys life, and aprreciates friends and family and oh yes lest I forget the most important requirement, must have a sense of humor and a twinkle in your eyes.
As for me I love to laugh and smile, easy going, friendly,afectionate, comfortable in most situations from evening gowns to camping. I have recently retired from a successful sale career and have as of June moved back from Hawaii to the Central Coast. I loved Kauai but with a new Grandson in California I knew I wanted to be closer. Seeing them once or twice a year would not be good enough. Although I loved Hawaii and it will always be in my heart I am excited about creating a new life here on the central coast and persuing my dream of an artistic life. So long walks on a beautiful tropical beach where not a dream but a reality.
I have always felt I had a creative side but never found the medium I was interested in until a couple of years ago. With a friends encouragement I now display my art in a few galleries on Kauai and hope to get involved in the art community here on the central coast. There is no greater reward tha the satisfaction of creating a work of art and having someone fall in love with it. My desire is to expand my knowledge and abilities.
My daughter wrote recently that I am "Happy, social, vibrant, fun, confident, appreciative, present, loving, knowledgable and kind. Meeting challenges beautifully, head on and with courage.". I think this would be a great description of what I am looking for in a partner.
A trip to the produce mart and a gourmet meal from the catch of the day,a glass of wine, ah..life is good. Love movies, plays, good wine and friends. IA long walk, a hike just getting outdoors is what I enjoy. Skiing, water skiing, boating, fishing. I excersize at least 4-5 times a week.
FYI: I will not respond without a photo to your e-mails or to old outdated photos.
Date men and women from United States. starting a new chapter in my life, the possibilities are endless! got no deeds to do no promises to keep, dappled and drowsy and ready to.....trust somebody again. just ended a first-time marriage and thought i had found my place, but he wanted out, so wow, i was looking for someone to care for when i found him, and now i guess i'm still looking.
i don't like bars. or bar-flies. i like moody blues, pink floyd, and pearl jam, imelda mae, good blues, live oak, herbs, animals. i gave all of me to my husband, and now i have to start over with nobody, my family is over 1000 miles away and this area is the only place i want to live, it's so beautiful, i just have to find a new circle of friends. have you heard of live oak? 3-day music festival, camping close to cachuma lake on father's day weekend.
I love animals, and currently have 2 Rottweilers and 3 cats, a saltwater 'bio-cube' , and a fish pond with goldfish and koi.
I used to be a gym-rat, body sculpting years ago, and have kept in shape through the years, I like to be active, as well as couch potato-it! I ove TV, into True Blood, and Weeds, and Shameless and Game of Thrones and Desparate Housewives and Sexin the City to name a few of my favorites.
I actually hate computers, having worked on one for the last 20yrs....don't like facebook, takes too much of my time! I'm very outdoors-y, and indoors-y too!
I'm currently trying to set up my greenhouse at my new place, and that's fun too. I used to tube the Kern River, the rapids were a lot of fun, never sky-dived although I came very close once (the wind wasn't right), but that's on my list!
I can cook, I can fish, and I love to play. I'm eager to start living again.
