I am curious and creative. I have always loved to learn. I enjoy traveling, writing, reading, going out to plays, concerts and films. I literally did take that walk on the beach today. Easy to do. But my walk today was alone and I encountered sweet people. I love to go out to dinner on Friday night, go dancing Saturday night,play some sports,golf some and then attend church on Sunday. I also like other gatherings--dinner parties at my place or at my colleagues' homes. I like hanging out at home casually, too, just quietly reading before the fire, or relaxing and catching up on the news. I really like having a companion share all these things--life itself. I am loving and affectionate. I like to laugh a lot, and be joyous and adventurous. I always feel youthful and look forward to the future. I like to have things in common with a partner, but enjoy experiencing new activities and ideas, too, and respect other people's passions and their ties to their families. Someone who is gentle and kind, but passionate and fun as well. Someone who can live and let live(be tolerant, but discriminating, too). I enjoy someone who is bright and a good conversationalist, who likes to travel and explore new places, but also values a home base. I would like to meet someone who would cherish finding a devoted, loyal person to have as a best friend and monogamous partner. I would like to give and receive in an honest, independent manner, as I knew full well what a valuable gift another caring human being really is.
