Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
What a joy it is to keep living, loving and learning! Meeting new
people and trying new experiences add so much to the joy. All
that’s missing is sharing it with that special person.
After 30+ years as a medical social worker and 9 years as a
realtor, I’m mostly not working though I’ll keep my real estate
license active to help those folks who would like to work with me.
This year I realized a long-held dream (my 65th birthday present to
myself) and spent this summer volunteering at several state parks
in Washington state. So lucky to choose one of the hottest summers
on record in NC to spend in the Pacific Northwest. Serving as a
camp host and as an interpretative volunteer presented new
challenges for me, new opportunities to learn and beautiful
environments to work in. Actually, it didn’t even seem like work.
Old growth forests, beaches and people enjoying camping. What’s not
to like? And this winter back in North Carolina it’s a time for

I enjoy family time with my sons, grandsons and sisters; quiet time
(I am an avid reader); RV traveling; learning; intelligent
conversation; working in an around my house; almost all music; the
wonder of our world; card and board games; Carolina basketball;
comedy; plays and movies (preferably not violent or creepy ones)
and some TV shows.
I lean toward liberal ideas and really do not like prejudice of any
kind. I have no time for negativity and hostility. Laughter is my
drug of choice and a necessity in my life. By nature, I am a
supportive and empathetic person.
I hope to do more traveling in my RV and would like to find a
non-smoking companion who would also enjoy exploring new places. I
don’t have any specific expectations for a long term relationship
other than hoping to find a true and honest friendship, one that
can develop slowly over time with trust and equality. Letting a
relationship develop in its own time and direction is more my style
than rushing toward a specified outcome.
I am ever positive, accepting, and loving life. As to religion, I’m
a Methodist by upbringing and affiliation though not an active
church-goer. My faith is personal and I find god (or the great
spirit) in moments throughout the day and in many different places
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just enjoying each and every day, learning to play the Native
American flute, trying to simplify my home environment (living in a
30’ motorhome for 6 months led me in this direction), reading,
surfing the net, working in my yard, taking care of my 5 month old
grandson and making memories for the other grandsons (campfires,
museum trips, etc).
I’m really good at
