I am a retired guidance counsellor who has been widowed since 2010
and would like to meet a guy around my age who has some of the same
interests. A good sense of humour is a must as well as an interest
in family - both extended and nuclear. I am trust-worthy, caring, a
great listener and love to laugh. Travel has been a big part of my
life and I would like that to continue. I love traveling both
locally and in different countries - there's a lot to be said for
getting together and going for a drive in the surrounding area. I
also enjoy older cars - my late husband and I had a couple of old
mustangs, a corvette, an MGB and a Willy's Jeep.
What I’m doing with my life
I am involved in volunteer tutoring, some charity works as well as
helping out at one of the local political headquarters. I enjoy
helping others and find that friends often come to me to work
through an issue. For my own pleasure I love to read, travel and go
to movies or live theatre.
I’m really good at
- listening to people and trying to help them realize they already have all the answers to their problems.
The first things people usually notice about me
my hair colour, my smile and my sense of humour.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm an avid reader and will read almost anything except Harlequin
Romances. My movie taste is eclectic but I really don't like having
to figure out the message behind them - I go to movies for
enjoyment and relaxation. I love live theatre and go to all the
Mirvish Series in Toronto where I also get to indulge in my love
for foreign foods - I would say that Thai food probably ranks
highest on my list.
The six things I could never do without
Some time to myself
A good laugh
I spend a lot of time thinking about
A whole lot of things - my future, my family
On a typical Friday night I am
often visiting my sister in Toronto, out with a group of friends in Barrie or just watching a movie
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I fill this in then it's not private anymore!!!
