The quick summary:
You are around my age, perhaps a bit younger or older in good physical condition. You consider yourself attractive to a man who is a sucker for eye contact, a shapely physique and a warm, caring personality. You have a mind of your own. Although you are independent and may not be ready to commit to a man, when you find him you are willing to think about a long term relationship.
If you are looking for a man who is independently wealthy, move on. If you feel that sharing resources and making plans together, great and small, is a great idea, give me a further look.
Many women tell me that they meet men who are just interested in one thing. Ok, I am interested in that too, but not until our relationship suggests it. As time goes by I understand that physical immediacy is less important than caring. I am a man who is ready to act "now" to start building a relationship. If you are shopping around...... please move on.
I recently a small house at the edge Philadelphia's Wissahickon Valley of Fairmount Park. It is amazingly quiet considering I am 1/4 mile from a major route to center city. My home could use a feminine touch. That can wait until the time comes. Meanwhile I am decorating to my own tastes.
When I read about women who want to travel, I don't have a budget for a lot of international sightseeing. I wish I did. One of my daughters lives in Montevideo, Uruguay and I'd love to share a visit there with my partner. Another daughter is in law school in Berkeley, Ca. Ditto there. I am planning to go to Paris next fall. Want to come with me?
My fashion is L.L. Bean casual. But if you look great in a dress, I can rise to the occasion! I own a tuxedo.
I like smaller family operated restaurants. I am a practical cook: quick and tasty.
My community has always been important to me. Although I am not as active as I used to be, making Germantown a better place to live in and shop in is still important to me. I tutor 8th grade students in English and Communication.
I heard recently, "If a woman finds a man who can cook and fix things, she should marry him." That's me and more! I think physical attraction matters. You will be fit and proud of the way you look and feel.
My 5 year old grand daughter took my profile picture at a family picnic. It's a good representation of who I am. And by the way, I have hair under that hat! Check my other photos to see that it true.
Contact me to learn more if the spirit moves you and you really want to start a relationship. My profile used to be a lot longer. I discovered it is better for you to meet me and ask questions! Speaking of questions: I have answered over 3,000 OK Cupid questions honestly. Check them out! And there is hair under that profile picture hat.... look at my other photos!
