This is my first experience with online dating, but I'm ready to
find a special woman and hopefully a serious relationship. I'm very
active and social--I guarantee that I'm the youngest 59-year-old
you'll ever meet! I have been divorced for many years and have 3
grown, awesome kids. I'm fairly liberal, and not particularly
religious. However, I would like to find a lady who's traditional
enough to allow me to pamper her a little... walk on the outside,
open doors, massage feet ...
What I’m doing with my life
I work for the state, trying to improve education. I enjoy my adult
kids and new grandbabies. Hoping to retire sometime this year.
I’m really good at
I have good people skills--many friends of all ages, male and
female. I'm also a craftsman (built a house in the country when the
kids were young), and have helped friends build additions, decks,
etc. I'd like to say I'm good at golf, but I am getting better!
The first things people usually notice about me
I'd like to think it's my smile (and not my shiny head)!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a lot--all kinds of books. (I even read all the Twilight
books--shhh.) I don't watch much TV. I like all kinds of music:
classic rock, country western (music to dance to). My favorite food
is Dungeness crab.
The six things I could never do without
Time with my kids, grandkids, and friends, books, woodworking and
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My work consumes much of my mental "space," but I think and care
about other people. I think about how to make the world a better
place. I wonder what the next chapter in the book of living will be
On a typical Friday night I am
Meeting after work with friends at a local pub for nachos, beers,
and laughs. Then I might visit a family member or friend. In the
fall I might even be driving to Pullman for a Cougar football game.
I used to occasionally go out dancing, but there doesn't seem to be
any good places to do that in Olympia anymore.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There is always a song in my head that seems to match with the
moods during my day!
You should message me if
You are active, social, healthy, intelligent, have a sense of
humor, and interested in a meaningful relationship. It would be
great if you also enjoy the out of doors, exploring our
surroundings wherever we may find ourselves!
