I am compassionate, energetic, friendly, honest, independent and humorous at times. I read newspapers, periodicals and a book everyday.
I have a generous and giving side to domestic help, my adult daughters, those in hospitality and select organizations. My family has and always will be important to me. I am an optimist and believe conditions will always get better.
Being in good health has been important to me for over 20 years. Since my retirement as a software developer and security administrator I exercise and train at a fitness facility three times per week. I have a healthful diet and try to get as much organic food as I can. I feel terrific being in good physical shape and have made fitness a lifetime commitment.
I want to meet a woman who is in good health, takes care of herself, can inspire me with her knowledge, curious about a lot of things, has an adventurous spirit, share in some of the same interests, likes to have fun, who is thoughtful, caring and helpful, comfortable with her life and wants to share in the joy of a relationship that will grow.
I live an active life that is filled with adventure, excitement, fun and travel.
The outdoor world has been a big part of my life whether it be summer or winter. I take pleasure going for a bike ride; walking in a forest preserve, park, or conservation area; hiking in beautiful terrain. There are lasting memories and stories of areas I have visited throughout our country during my travels and there is more to come in the future.
Other areas of interest are cooking, art shows, discovering something new at a museum, CSO concerts at Ravinia, movies, photography, picnics in serene settings, reading and wine tasting.
