You are around my age, perhaps a bit younger or older and you care about your 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, when you find a man who attracts you physically, mentally and socially you won't hesitate to meet me. You'll know if I am your man. At our age, we may as well get on with developing a relationship with each other rather than be coy! I am ready to make a commitment to a woman if she is looking for the same.
I own a small house at the edge Philadelphia's Wissahickon Valley of Fairmount Park. It's "rural" and quiet even though I am 1/8 mile from a major route to center city. My ideal partner will live with me or close to me so that visiting is easy, not a trek. I must say here that I don't plan to move from northwest Philadelphia. If you live in another state, we won't make it if you don't move. Please, don't consider me stubborn or unwilling to compromise. I have commitments to this area. You may have commitments where you live too. One of us will have to budge. I have accepted that I am staying where I am. I want to be close to you -- a marriage or marriage-like relationship eventually.
My fashion is L.L. Bean casual. I can wear a tie and I own a tuxedo. Generally however, I am on the casual side. In warm weather, I prefer shorts.
Food? I like smaller, family operated restaurants. I am a practical cook: quick and tasty. You get lots of points if you also enjoy modest cooking. You'll lose me if every dish is gourmet, unfortunately. It's not my style as delicious as they may be. Can we compromise? While I can be educated in alternative diets, mine is straight forward. On my own, chicken and fish are the featured proteins.
My community has always been important to me. Making Germantown a better place for living and shopping is important to me. I tutor local 8th grade students in English and Communication.
Traveling in the USA and abroad is possible with my partner provided we can plan our expenses. We would need to have similar styles and desires. I prefer to bring home memories, gifts and items which preserve the voyage as opposed to lavish hotels, etc.
I spent a week in Paris in October, 2014 to celebrate a reunion of a year abroad class in 1966-67. Sixteen of us, some with spouses, met for a series of events and dinners together.I want to return to France and the use of my French. Parlez vous francais un peu? While I am not interested in cruises. A possible exception would be a small sailing ship. Rail excursions or a river cruise in Europe? If you speak Spanish, you can be my guide to other parts of the world.
I am a Unitarian Universalist. And as a member of the Unitarian Society of Germantown, I hope my partner will appreciate the congregation's concept of faith. Its values and activities are important to me. Sharing them with my partner would be an asset to the relationship.
