I am very allergic to cats. No getting around that. But just cats. Not fond of reptiles either.
My parents (both passed away in the last few years) were married for almost sixty years. So I have strong beliefs about making a committment and making it work as well.
On a similar note, I do not wish to hear from anyone that is married, separated, seeing someone, "almost divorced" etc. It's about principles....
I am looking to meet a lady somewhat younger than myself. I'd prefer someone with a college education .
. I have a great sense of humor and appreciate the same in others. I want to meet someone for friendship and fun first, then see what happens. I have learned those two things are invaluable in a relationship, as is honesty. I am a deep down die hard romantic, but somewhat cautious as well. Every day needs an adventure! I enjoy traveling, music, (no rap, no, not ever) dining out and trying new cuisines.
Love exploring Chicago, getting out and doing things.
I am fortunate enough to have a rescue dog, he is a Beagle mix. He is a good buddy, maybe he actually rescued me. He helps a lot with housework. He cleans the kitchen floor selectively. And Heaven forbid, if any sort of vegetable falls into his sacred food dish, it is surgically removed and placed on the floor. Where he scowls at it. He tries to help fertilize the yard, year 'round, whether it needs it or not. But he does not apply the fertilizer evenly......
I like trying out new things in the kitchen. I have had some spectacular disasters,I must say. Love cooking out in the summer. I better, since I have three grills. All charcoal, by the way.
It would be SO refreshing to meet a lady that at least offers to split or pick up the tab from time to time
It would be nice to have someone to talk to, do things with, be friends, have fun and share adventures. I know, this is where I should say "walks on the beach" etc., but this is the mid west...
