I'm retired after 40+ years in the manufacturing industry. I have an ongoing interest in volunteering, hiking, travel, and sports and during my life I've found ways to merge two or more of those together. I guess you could say I'm "creative" that way! :-)
I'm also a down-to-earth guy who doesn't need a 5-star restaurant or hotel to be happy but I prefer something nicer than McD's and a two-person tent. I've done the tent thing in the past and I would again, but it wouldn't break my heart if I didn't :-) .
Here's what I'm looking for:
I'm looking for someone who has similar interests, but at the same time interests of her own too. I consider myself a life-long learner who wants to learn and experience new things.
I'm looking for an equal partner with enough common interests to form the basis of a great relationship.
I'm also not looking for a female couch potato. I'm looking for someone who wants to get out and DO things! Someone who strikes a balance between work and play and who believes that while home is nice and very worth having, there are lots of things to explore in the outside world too.
I'm looking for someone who believes that love, romance and passion aren't dependent on one's age, someone who believes that the numbers on one's driver's license has little to do with who that person is.
