Hi and thank you reading my profile. I believe in love, friendship and companionship and all the richness it brings to our lives. As a "we" person, not an "I" person, sharing life experiences, intelligent conversations, great food and travel is what I am hoping for with another. I love nature, in its many forms, and currently live by the ocean. I make it a point to watch the sunrise and sunset almost everyday. I am quite active, hiking, walking, biking...taking care of oneself mentally and physically is important to me. I am both spontaneous and organized, "citified" and "countrified." I love travel and am currently picking up where I left off as a youth. Just completed a 37 year career in public education as an administrator, coach and teacher. So learning and traveling to new places is "my life curriculum" now. I also enjoy theatre, concerts,dancing, music, arts, good food, cooking, farmers markets and fabulous cafes and coffee houses. Spending time at home is good, too reading gardening and just relaxing. Dogs, love them ALL, and just lost my puppy December 26th. Hope to add a new addition when I am ready.
I have 2 adult children (26 and 28) living in San Francisco and Austin Texas. After living all my life in San Diego, I am toying with the thoughts of relocation and contemplating a change. So far,I have visited or plan to visit Portland, Sedona, Seattle, Colorado, San Francisco, South Lake Tahoe, Florida, the national parks throughout the US and really want to take the train through Canada. Also back to Europe and the Middle East when it seems safe to travel abroad again.
I am attracted to honest,intelligent, kind and caring men that listen, share, are open-minded and non-judgmental. I want to develop that special friendship,that passionate love, that sparkle that comes with laughter, respect and thankfulness for one another. I know it is out there just waiting for me! Please reach out if you are interested. I still love the idea of "gentleman." Let's throw on our jeans, tennis shoes, bike shorts or running shorts, grab each other's hands and get moving!
