I lived for many years in Ventura, CA prior to retirement and moved in 1999 to Sequim, WA. Currently I'm spending near equal months in both places after the ending of a 23 year marriage. I also travel once a year to Oklahoma to visit family and to check up on my business there. My home in WA is currently on the market, but will most likely buy a smaller place in WA after it sells. I like to spend Springs, Summers and Fall on the Olympic Peninsula. Other times of the year I like to travel anywhere and everywhere.
I'm looking for a friend first. One with a nice smile and great eyes that speak out loud. As for me, I'm faithful, loving and friendly.......not unlike your favorite pet?
I've learned a lot over the years and one of those is: I'm looking for a secure woman, one who feels comfortable with me having friends all the way back to grade school or spending time with my family. In return I will respond in kind.
I expect my match with have her own money by this stage of her life just as I have.
We all have some baggage from our pasts but I expect.......no insist... that any match for me has made the decision to leave the baggage behind them.
As the song Title by The Eagles says......"Get over it!"
I've been told I'm a good kisser but you would have to judge for yourself, and I love the "touchy feely" stuff, both to give and receive.
If you like to talk......some call it communicate.....then I'm your guy....or so my friends tell me. It's taken many years to overcome my natural shyness but I've become much better at telling others when there are things I really like about them. In the past I might just think or feel a compliment but not say them.
It almost goes without saying it, but Chemistry is a must!
What am I really looking for? 'A woman, a lover, a friend" song title by Jackie Wilson (try You Tube)
I put this profile up in a hurry and I'm not really that much into writing or proof reading the first time so I may be adding thoughts as I become more familiar with Match. I'm a Facebook person and have many lifetime photos posted there. Maybe if we match up you can become a friend (or more) there too.
