I love intelligent conversation, even beyond the first few weeks where there is much to talk about as we get to know each other. I like to do the kind of things most people do, like day trips in the mountains, I really enjoy going for daily walks, on level ground, I'm not much of a "hiker".
Though I'm always working to improve my physical shape, it's only "fair to middling" at this time, and while I don’t use a walker or cane I don't mind if you do. I am conscious that my balance is not as good as it used to be. I think I am fairly active for an average 70 year-old. I've always been a very active, hard-working person, and am currently very much enjoying being retired and find I still have plenty to do.
I think a lively and philosophical mind and a great sense of humor are the most important qualities a fellow can have. Good and even great conversation is my favorite activity, and for me pretty much goes on during all other activities. I'm a talker, so if you want a really quiet gal that's someone else. I don’t mind if you are quiet but I need a companion who shows real interest in life and is spiritual too. I am very Spiritual and believe in God, but I'm not religious in a traditional belief system. I've gone to a non-denominational church, Mile Hi Church, for about 40 years, and attend every Sunday. It's a great source of inspiration and upliftment for me. Plus it’s where I socialize. Want to come along with me?
At this age, I know and like myself, not likely to change a lot. I'm very independent and enjoy being alone. Extrovert and Introvert. I'm not afraid of life and experience but I am cautious about relationships and like to get to know someone before going past friendship. I really have no interest in moving in with someone or getting married, but I won't say that is written in stone. I have a wonderful and inexpensive living situation right now and I have no need to change that, tho I wouldn't mind spending weekends at my sweethearts' house.
Only positive people need apply, no constant complainers or blamers, name-calling at other drivers, etc. Yeah, I know that narrows it down quite a bit, ha ha! Most people love to scream at other drivers and I suppose I am guilty on occasion as well. But People make mistakes, get over it, it's unattractive to condemn others.
I am a Democrat. Trump supporters will not be considered, sorry. While much learning may come of it in the end, I believe this person as the President of our amazing country is a mistake that may bring a lot of regret!
I am healthy and cook healthy, but I'm never going to stop eating bread and ice cream sometimes. I don't mind if my companion has physical limitations, but I'm not looking to be anybody's caretaker or nurse. A loving and caring companion is awesome and welcome, but for now I can take care of myself.
I'm actually very sensible and stable. But while I have this life, I'm going to live it. One more point, I certainly wouldn't mind a relationship with someone likes to travel. I finally have the time, retired, and there is much to see. One does not even have to travel too far from home. I'm fairly easily entertained. The key is that I'm already happy, I don't need another person or an activity to create that, it comes from within, doesn't it? Well, after all that, if you took the time to read it, you know me pretty well, right?
