Down to earth, young at heart, active, intelligent, affectionate,
spontaneous, animal loving, girl next door is looking for her last
first date and is willing to relocate to the wild blue yonder for
the right man.
I enjoy traveling, reading, gardening, recycling, cooking,
bicycling (road and hybrid), skiing (alpine), scooters, swimming,
camping (down bag for 2), decorating, dancing (while I sing softly
into your ear the love song playing on the kitchen radio),
fireplaces/pits, quiet times appreciating nature, museums, movies,
music, mountains, lakes, rivers and oceans, auctions,
walking/hiking, and keeping my mind active by learning new
In matters of the heart, I tend to be a little shy until I get to
know you, so don't you be shy too. Life is too short.
What I’m doing with my life
Rehabbing to sell and move from IL Recently I've been answering a
lot of questions on this site thinking that at some point I would
have answered them all.
I’m really good at
Organizing/details, talking to strangers, falling asleep during a
movie, driving a car and parallel parking...
The first things people usually notice about me
For 20 years, it was having an Australian shepherd by my side
before I got two of them, which now makes it more difficult for me
to bring them anywhere. Personally, the ease at which I am able to
interact with anyone.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Places where I might potentially relocate, future vacation
destinations, what's next on the to do list in my head...
On a typical Friday night I am
Going out for dinner or finishing errands before the weekend
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a personal aversion to undergarments.
You should message me if
You're an honest, affectionate, passionate, spontaneous, animal
loving man, who has integrity, a great smile, a twinkle in your eye
that I can see from across a room, a kick in your step and a song
in your heart. Must have a sense of humor and treat others as you
wish to be treated. Also must be curious about the world beyond
your own backyard.
If you feel the need to consume alcohol daily, smoke anything or
take nonprescription drugs, we would NOT be a good match. I am not
opposed to alcohol consumption in moderation and enjoy wine,
champagne, wine coolers and margaritas on occasion. I've been going
to the Napa region for years and my mother and sister are both
Best of luck to you in finding what you are looking for in a
