I am a person who is known for my giving and caring attitude. It brings me great pleasure to do things for others that include my family, friends, and anyone whomever would become my significant other. Nothing makes me happier! I want to be know as a person who makes a difference in the lives of others.
I am a down to earth person who likes the simpler things in life. I can dress up when need be but prefer the casual dress. I LOVE the outdoors. Just sitting on my deck in the morning with my coffee or at night enjoying the beautiful mountains around me brings me great joy. 4-wheeling up on the flattops, boating on Lake Powell or other lakes, or golfing on one of our beautiful golf courses are things that bring me great happiness, just being outdoors.
I taught here in the Roaring Fork Valley for 33 years, retired 4 years ago. I now am an educational consultant where I spend the majority of time working in bush Alaska in remote villages where there may only be 2 teachers for a school to 8 teachers for a school PK-12. It has been an eye opening experience, at times frustrating and other times very rewarding. I have been to 14 villages so far mostly along the Yukon River. I travel this year about 1 week a month. I would be willing to give this up for someone who comes into my life as I feel being on the road makes it hard to build a relationship. I, of course, would need to fulfill the few commitments that I’ve already made for the next few months.
Family is important to me. I love spending time with them a few times a year, even though they live quite a ways away. I especially enjoy spending time with my grandkids. They bring a big smile to my face!
I like to look at the positive side of life, not the negative. Love to smile and laugh! Unfortunately, have had problems with a knee replacement revision and now have to wear a brace fulltime. I don’t let that get me down. My faith has given me tremendous strength and perseverance in hard times. I could be a lot worse off. But no skiing or strenuous hiking. :(
I am looking for someone who is loving, compassionate, understanding and somewhat successful. He should be caring, tender, respectful and thoughtful. I also value honesty, integrity, loyalty and willingness to treat my family as if they were yours. I’d like my partner to be adventuresome, capable gentle and positive. It would be great to find someone who could be my best friend and lover. You will get bonus points have a “glass half full” philosophy. I have few non negotiable those being dating someone who has a drug or alcohol problem.
Let’s see if any magic happens!
