I'm mellow, friendly, considerate, optimistic. I appreciate simplicity and tranquility; contentment/comfort over thrills/frills; no glitz, glamour, games. I'm grateful, not materialistic. Responsible, financially and otherwise. Informal in dress, food, approach to life. "City sensibilities," but love a cabin-by-the-lake lifestyle. I actually listen and consider your perspective. I love exploring and interacting, long walks with you, fortuitous discoveries, travel, reading, plays, movies, expanding horizons.
I was a professor for a decade and headed a U.S. gov't service for over two. Lived in many places, had many career turns.
Widowed after a wondrous 13-year marriage. I cherished our loving home, ordinary, intimate, daily life and quiet times. An earlier 20-year marriage ended in divorce, her choice.
