I'm generally a quiet and reserved person but open up once I get to know you. I'm pretty happy-go-lucky and unconscientiously whistle much to the annoyance of my kids (maybe that is why they moved out). I’m laid back and do not get rattled too easily. That said, I like to work hard and play hard. I’m usually the first one to get bloodied when playing some sport; although, I’m not sure if it’s because of my efforts or my incompetence. I work hard around the house and actually enjoy mowing the lawn, hoeing the raspberries or painting the house. I think jobs like these help me unwind and give me a sense of satisfaction. I like to work out for much of the same reasons. I jog and play with weights regularly and feel pretty good for an old man.
I enjoy living out in the country in my old farmhouse with my two St.Bernards and two cats. I enjoy giving the dogs a walk and going on leisurely bike rides. I also like to go out and listen to a band, have a few beers and even dance sometimes. I’ve taken some beginning ballroom dancing lessons and would like to continue once I have a dance partner. I especially like to swing dance. I like old things and enjoy antiquing but I do not like having a lot of junk around the house either so it’s often a conundrum for me.
I go to church regularly and do volunteer work. I use to enjoy assisting the phy-ed teacher at the local parochial school but then my regular job changed and was unable to continue. Now I help out with Sunday school.
It would be nice to have someone to take out, go walking and to go dancing with.
