Those who know me best say I am intelligent, attractive, caring and FUN to be around ~ they may be somewhat biased! I am enjoying the freedom of retirement, along with the benefits of increased recreational time; spending most of it with close friends and family pursuing varied interests that include sailing, travel, and the arts.
I value treating others with kindness and respect, being a true friend, and I'm an old-fashioned romantic. I also believe in giving back to my community through volunteering in various organizations.
The qualities I am looking for in a very special man include honesty, integrity of character, and a solid sense of self-esteem; being comfortable "in his own skin". Physical attractiveness coupled with genuine kindness and love of life are important to me, along with the ability to easily move between black tie and barbeque, intimate dinners at home and enjoying the company of friends. This man is a gentleman, easy to communicate with, a best friend, respectful, kind and considerate, who possesses a sensual romantic side and is comfortable showing it.
