I recently stopped dating someone that I met here 18 months ago. We are still friends.
Two years ago I retired and moved my home to San Francisco. After a year costs drove me to Concord. In order to have more money to travel I've put my stuff in storage and travel full time. In the last 3 months I've been to Europe, on a cruise, to Reno, Tucson, L.A., Houston, New York and New Orleans. I'll be in the Bay Area till mid December then off again (who knows where).
In 2012 I had a heart bypass operation. my condo finally sold and I became the custodial parent of my 17 year old daughter. She is graduated from Balboa High School in 2013.
If we meet, what will you find:
I like to strike up conversations with strangers. Some think I'm a flirt. When I've been in a relationship I've always been faithful.
Living lightly on the planet, and a small footprint (size 8, but EEE)" are important values for me. None the less, I find myself driving more than I expected due to an absence of local shops, hills and my chauffeuring duties. She takes her road test next week.
I've traveled some, (but still many places to go) and usually prefer mass transit or a tour bus to a rental car.
You will like my smile. I don't usually talk politics, but my views are far, far left.
I'm a romantic and believe happy endings are possible, but not certain. While I believe in God, I don't think (s)he will change my destiny without effort on my part.
Things I'd like to do more of include camping, swimming and writing.
Brief Bio: The oldest of four. I resented my role in the family, dropped out of college and went to "'Frisco to dance the Grisly Bear", adopted the mufti of a hippie and Deadhead got my BA, and JD then marriage, kid, career path jobs, L.A. kid #2, divorce and part-time parenting. I've had three long term relationships in the past 12 years, none co-habitating. The last ended a year ago.
