I retired from a career in public education and moved from the
midwest to Las Vegas a few years ago. Have just recently moved back
to Rockford to be near family. I enjoy being active outdoors
(hiking, cycling) - an advantage of living in Vegas and having
access to the desert and the mountains. Visiting national parks and
historical sites are two of my favorite things to do. Travel,
movies and reading are high on the list of things I enjoy, as much
as just relaxing with someone special. I take an interest in
current events and in the environment; liberal in my political
views. Being retired my time is flexible and I have time to travel
as well as for fun, romance and adventure.
I consider myself to be easy going, honest, faithful, down to
earth, and considerate of others - and would want to be with
someone who shares those same qualities. I have a positive outlook
on life and like to be with others sharing a similar positive
attitude. I try my best to live by the Golden Rule. Don't have any
pets at this time but do like both dogs and cats.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told it's my eyes and my smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like to read both fiction and non-fiction. Fiction would typically be mystery thrillers and non-fiction could be almost anything. Movies could include dramas, comedy, romance - as long as it is a quality movie. Music, anything other than rap although also not a huge fan of jazz. The kid in me enjoys Star Trek and Disneyworld.
The six things I could never do without
My car for travel

I spend time thinking about how I want to spend the second half of
my life, experiencing all the things that I've yet to experience,
and hoping that I meet someone to accompany me on this exciting
On a typical Friday night I am
For future Friday nights hoping that I'm spending them with you.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think you would have to get to know me a lot better before I'd
You should message me if
A match for me would be someone who enjoys the outdoors, likes to
read, lives a healthy lifestyle, has a sense of humor, wants to
travel, enjoys movies, etc. Like so many of us I'm looking for that
one last great romance, with emphasis on "great".
