Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am an independent father of two wonderful daughters who are
grown, on their own, but we are very close and visit on holidays
whenever possible. I am retrement age, but like my job and plan to
contunue working a few more years if the economy allows. I have
been away from socialising with a partner for too long.
The things I like to do include: hikng, biking, yoga, exercising,
the theater, live music, movies, plays, dinner and travel. I was an
army brat, so moving often is in my past, but it is nice to have a
home base. My daughter recently gave me a book titled "1000 places
you musy see before you die", and I regard it as a challange to
check off more of the places listed, than I have so far, and I
already have quite a few.
I have been blessed with pretty good health, and I want to share
the future with someone special in addition to my family. I am a
newspaper addict and the two favorite books I have read are Jane
Austin's "Pride and Prejudice" and Thomas Wolfe's "Look Homeward
I must also confess that I am a sports fan. I love the Redskins,
college football in general, watching baseball games in person
(Primarily a Reds fan, but I have had to become also a Red Sox fan
because of my son-in-law), tennis, college basketball (an ACC fan)
and golf, but only the majors.
I am Friendly, Curious, and considerate

Help your potential matches find common interests.
The favorite books were disclosed earlier, but to them I must add
here, "Winnie the Poo". I like the blues, classical music, folk
music (remember Hootenannies?) and anything my daighter writes and
sings or plays. I love all kinds of food, the spicier the better.
The love of eating is why I exercise a lot. I was a fat kid in high
school and I never want to go there again.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My children, my entended family, exercise, my freedom, tender
mercies and loving kindness.
