Call me spirited, intelligent, honest and happy! I want to begin by sharing that I am a "we" person, not an "I" person. I have come to realize that sharing my life experiences, love and companionship with another is the most important thing in life. I want to find that love again....I know it is out there. I am a true nature lover and currently live by the ocean. 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 have always loved to 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. I am on to new vistas. I enjoy meeting new people and sharing new experiences excite me. I enjoy theatre, concerts, music, arts, good food, cooking, farmers markets and fabulous cafes and coffee houses. I love spending time at home, reading gardening, relaxing with my 11 year old dachshund. Quiet solitude is refreshing, but not all the time :) I have always been one that doesn't need to be entertained and constantly on the run. I love sitting on the couch, while the smells of food is cooking in the kitchen...did I share I love to cook and bake?
I watch the sunrise and watch the sunset everyday....thankful to be alive! I have 2 adult children (25 and 27) living in San Francisco and Austin Texas. I love them dearly and spend as much time with them as they "allow" me to. After living all my life in San Diego, I am visiting potential areas to relocate and contemplating a change. Change can be hard I must say....but taking risks can reap huge benefits. So far, since I retired in September, I have visited or plan to visit Portland, Sedona, Seattle, San Francisco, Colorado, South Lake Tahoe.... I am flexible in that way. (working my way throughout the US first)
I am attracted to honest, kind and caring men that listen, share, are open-minded and non-judjemental. 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!
