I took early retirement in 2010 after 30 years in software development for a large financial corporation. I'm now active with interests and hobbies and am looking for someone with interests and hobbies of her own. Hopefully we also have some interests in common we can do together. I like aviation and am a pilot as a hobby. I used to do a lot of boating and I can sail and drive a powerboat. Music is also on the list and I have my own little personal recording setup where I can be creative. I grew up in Europe and have lived in Copenhagen, London, Brussels before coming to the US in 1978. I'm down to earth, easy going and like to be with someone who has a similar personality. I like to get up fairly early and get a start on the day rather than hanging out into the wee hours of the night. I find I like to be around a woman that doesn't take herself too serious and can laugh at herself at times. Someone with a good sense of humor and someone that treats other people with kindness and respect. I've been good at financial planning and preservation and am looking for someone with similar traits. I would be interested in friendship at first developing into a loving relaitonship as we get to know each other.
