Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have a positive attitude and enjoy being around people who are
happy with their lives. I'm enjoying retirement and can always find
something to do. Hiking and snow skiing are my two favorite
activities. Put me outdoors and I'm happy. I also enjoy walking,
cycling, photography, camping, spending time with friends, meeting
new people and trying new things. I'd like to meet someone who
shares one or more of these interests.
I would like to meet a like-minded man to spend time with. I think
sharing common activities is a good basis for developing a
friendship which hopefully would lead to a relationship. I really
don't think much about marriage because a committed relationship

followed by graduate school in Albuquerque. I majored in
international relations, political science and Latin American
Studies, but never worked in these fields.
I moved to San Diego from Denver in 1984 and have never regretted
the move. I'm retired and my career was in Federal Government,
working first for Social Security and then as as civilian for the
Department of the Navy.
I had terrific parents who taught me great values. I'm well
grounded and realistic and practical when it comes to making

I love all animals and volunteer my time at the local animal

I come from a small family and I am very close to my 98 year old
mother. She never ceases to amaze me. I make time every Monday to
spend some quality time with her. It also gives her live-in
caregivers some free time for themselves.
I have two dogs so hope you aren't allergic. My pets aren't the
center of my life, but they are important so definitely need a guy

Some of my best qualities are honesty, integrity, sincerity,
compassion and loyalty. My friends know that they can call on me in
any situation. I'm looking for the same in a man.
I am direct (but also tactful) and don't believe in playing games.
I am a good conversationalist and an even better listener. I would
like to meet someone who can keep up his end of a conversation. I
enjoy intelligent conversations on a variety of topics, but don't
consider myself an intellectual. I don't like to argue!
I am outgoing and friendly, but socialize best one-on-one or in
smaller groups. I tend to be on the quiet side in large groups. I
love to laugh, but also have a serious side. I am considerate of
those less fortunate. I am tolerant of other religions and
