I am very easy going and down to earth with a good sense of humor and a quick wit. I would say that I am very even keeled, emotionally balanced, very loyal, caring and sensitive. I am very practical, responsible and punctual. Independence is important to me and would like to meet someone special who is also independent. I have been in the construction field for over 30 years and until recently have been with the same firm for over 26 years. I am now self employed and enjoy the change and all the benefits that come with it. I have followed my passion and feel that everyone should be able to find and follow their own passion, as well. In addition to consulting, I was on the board of two non profit organizations one being statewide and the other is a local real estate networking group and I found the involvement in both organizations very rewarding. I regularly attend many programs such as: screenings presented by the KCET Cinema Series followed by interesting Q & A sessions. Programs by the WritersBloc literary series that feature people in the news who have just published a book. The Hammer Museum lecture series and programs put on by RAND on many interesting subjects. I tend to be drawn to events, that are intellectually stimulating.I am ready for a long term relationship with that one special person, who is looking for the same. I like to get out and do things around town or day trips locally. It would be great to meet someone who is also interested in some travel. It also works for me to be home and relax as well. I would like to share common interests with a partner and move through life on a parallel course. A quality friendship and relationship evolves over time.The best date I could hope for, would be the very last date. I am romantic, affectionate and would like to meet someone who has similar qualities. I have been told that I am very easy to talk to as well as being a good listener. So much of this comes down to chemistry and attraction. I recently began magic as a new hobby and enjoy going to the Magic Castle.
