My self-summary
I would love to share my life with my best friend and lover; an attractive(to me), independent and intelligent woman with a more youthful, positive attitude than most women my age. Someone who has an appreciation for others and their experiences. Will consider younger women as long as they have learned something about themselves and are honest about it. I work full time, with a good income and a nice house. I would like to be treated like the man of the house. Manners really go a long way with me. I've always been a bit "outside" the box; many societal conventions are casualties. But some "old-fashioned" ones are stronger with me than elsewhere. Be careful with any assumptions you may have. You will always get the real me, like it or not. You do you, I'll do me. But I'll bond forever. In exchange, you will be treated as the intelligent, sexy and capable woman you are. Constant positivity, affection and humor are necessary for the Good Life. I will ALWAYS return the same with interest. I have no children, but will always believe in a strong family bond. Thanks!
What I’m doing with my life
Maintaining my integrity, preparing for retirement(someday), staying close to family, doing the daily chores, learning something every day.
I’m really good at
Completing my goals, focusing on the task at hand, sticking to my principles, staying calm under pressure. Thinking things out before acting, acknowledging those I respect and value.
The first things people usually notice about me
Big, easy going, optimistic, humor, MANNERS, conversational. I was told recently I have "farmer" hands, whatever that means.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
TV- I'm a big fan of the Canadian series "Made in Canada"; Movies- Vintage films of the 1930's, comedys; Music-blues, rock, anything but cRap and gNashville; Food-Simple, well made American dishes, Italian, Mexican, Mediterranean. Style--love the American Art Deco and Moderne schools of design; I always have examples around.
The six things I could never do without
Intelligent, respectful conversation.
Love and Affection
good sleep
Manners and civility
Optimism about tomorrow.
Yes, I know more than six. I've got more than six things to list!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The counter-productive nature of Corporate buzz-speak!
Words like:
visionary cloud infrastructure
and so many more

This sort of of nonsense is the arch enemy of communication.

I believe that the personality traits that work best in business will nearly always destroy your personal life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having a nice dinner, enjoying the peace after a workweek. Enjoying my best friends. Waxing the cat.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
..wouldn't be private any more, now would it?
You should message me if
What am I looking for in you?================You're intelligent, very sweet with an optimistic and pleasant attitude. You enjoy being a woman and look feminine and comfortable for the man in your life. Independent and responsible, you have confidence in your beliefs and have your own interests; you feel no need to change anyone else. Ethical and spiritual. You seek out the simple pleasures, knowing the best cannot be bought. You refuse to ever let yourself be the victim. Let's enjoy long conversations and road trips that may go nowhere in particular, since the destination really isn't important. Looks forward to quiet times with a big Teddy Bear. You know that everything about life you learned in high school is wrong. Your preference is wood over plastic. You can talk and listen to the animals. And that your longer hair really is more feminine. Understands that men are visual creatures and includes a recent picture.

Isn't frightened when the power goes out.

I'd like to thank everyone for all the winks, pictures and messages! I have a suggestion or two- please post a good, close-up picture with a SMILE and WITHOUT sunglasses. If I can't see your eyes, I can't see YOU. I delete anybody whose primary picture is with sunglasses; it shows you really aren't serious about being open with anyone.
Please, no pictures of the scenery on your last vacation or of your dog (I'm sure he's a great dog, but I don't want to date him).
In return, I'll promise to never post any pictures with beer, cigarettes, pickup trucks, fish, Harleys, dead animals or other women;-)
