Looking for the perfect woman? Better move on. But if you're looking for someone kind, caring, loving and open, perhaps we should meet. I am bright, enthusiastic, love to learn new things and am very much a people person. I love reading, gardening, cooking, listening to music, walking, and spending time with friends. I'm passionate about the environment and am an NPR junkie! I just retired in June of 2013 and am loving the freedom it provides me. I have a daughter who graduated college in May and is currently studying in Israel. I have loved watching her grow into a strong, bright and beautiful young woman. I'm financially independent (and hope you are also) and am not a high maintenance sort of woman. I am willing to relocate for a compelling reason.
