My self-summary
Summing Up: Real food...from the garden...frozen or fresh, exercise, fresh air, nature, health, water, art, music, home, affection and some travel are priorities.
Continued commitment to healthy lifestyle, giving priority time for each other, taking time to share feelings and empathy daily...keeping short accounts by not going to bed until a conflict is resolved is Very Important to me and my partner.
I can't respond to "likes" but will contact you if you leave a message and live in reasonable driving distance.

I volunteer giving back to the community, have downsized and lead an uncomplicated life, divorced several years. I am retired, savor walking a nature trail of well over a mile on a coastal Island or quiet and woodsy trail, do stretch exercises daily to stay in very good health.
I'm also comfortable doing activities on the coast, at a beach or in the foothills of western Maine etc.
Friends have said I am kind, down to earth, thoughtful, passionate affectionate, resilient, have excellent hygiene. I am somewhat reflective, have a sensitive nature with caring concern for others practical needs and well being.
I like listening to most music: Instrumental & Upbeat Classical, Oldies, Blues, Standards, Some Country, Folk, Seasonal, Romantic Piano.
My place is small, cozy.... shoes dirt's out. I like relaxing, sharing hospitality, dining, music, reading, dancing close & romance with a companionable woman friend. We are not clones... similar and unique.

*approachable "old friend" feeling
*giving, thoughtful, caring, peaceful, passionate
*excellent health & dental hygiene
*like being close, being real
*concerned about your partner being happy and satisfied.

We share easy mutual conversation and do not monologue talk.... We ask each other questions and fully and patiently listen to each other so we both know and understand each others ideas & thoughts, giving each other priority time and affection.

These do not work for me:
Abandoners, Critics or Irresponsibles....
What I’m doing with my life

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life....Staying healthy. Done with Bama, burning with Bernie, over the hill with Hillary, Cruizin' with Cruz and Trump-eting.... with you know who!
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing on the couch at home watching a good movie....or have other plans.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I want to be in a close relationship with my best friend. A woman who is ready and available to meet after a few chats and phone talk.
You should message me if
You are available, seek more than an activity partner....want a comfortable monogamous relationship sharing companionship and intimacy.
