Now a little about me. I'm physically fit and healthy. I work out at the gym several mornings a week, mostly cardio stuff, and can't remember the last time I was sick. I don't smoke (anything) and seldom drink, but when I do, it's just a beer or two. I'm financially stable, retired from public school teaching, and am currently working part time for a university supervising student teachers. I'm fairly educated and can usually carry on a pretty intelligent conversation. I own my own home in a nice neighborhood in Peoria. I enjoy traveling, especially down to the beach at Rocky Point and getting away for quick weekend trips wherever something sounds fun and interesting. I'd love to travel more extensively, but I really would like to have a companion to share those experiences with. I consider myself a "glass half full" type of person and try to see good in all and do my best to keep a smile on my face.
Now back to my first question, "why am I here?" I don't know. Maybe you can help me. I'd like to think I'm a pretty damn good catch. I think I look pretty good on paper. So why can't I get a response to any emails? Am I really that disgustingly ugly that no one wants to get to know me a little better? Do I need more/less pictures? I've had friends help me "punch-up" my little essay, no no avail. Maybe someone will clue me in, or even better yet, look past whatever is stopping you from writing and give it a shot. Who knows, maybe we'll both have the opportunity to delete these damn profiles and ride off into the sunset together.
