Introduction

I have worked most of my life and am now looking forward to my retirement years. I was reading the Kiplinger Report today and this site was mentioned as a good place to try for online computer dating. I have always been considered high energy and I hope to not have to "bottle up" this personality trait. My job has given me the opportunity to travel extensively. I try to stay physically active for health and the ability to maintain active life style.

Essays

What would you like to do on a first date?

I would like a quiet environment so we would be able to talk without distractions. A quaint restaurant; walk in a park, beach boardwalk or even a place like Williamsburg.

Why you should get to know me:

You should get to know me to see if we are indeed looking for the same thing in a relationship. I know immediately I would not do well with a "couch potato" so things like that would need to be weeded out. I believe I bring chemistry, conversation, Christianity, and congeniality to all my relationships.

What have past relationships taught you?

That I know nothing could surpass finding the right person to share my life with. The best thing about being older is I know there is no "perfect". I work hard at not mis representing myself in the profile, pictures etc., because I am what I am and it is best he knows that sooner than later (and vice versa). Listening and willingness to try new things while at the same time being sure I express things I would like to do is something I have learned. I believe the questions I would ask would be more about where he is going in life versus where he has been.

Describe some of the most important things in your life:

Important things in my life are:
Faith
Family
Friends
Health
Travels

Describe your perfect day:

Anything that includes family. I like to see the interactions, hear the camaraderie, hear stories I never heard before and the sounds of laughter. I like being around people who are so comfortable with each other that you can just relax and be themselves. I realize this is probably what most of us are going to say so I will step out of this arena and say in all sincerity that I think a perfect day is right around the horizon for me. This will be as I am talking to someone I have met and just know he is someone I want to spend more time with. The first few dates are a tad uncomfortable for me. I feel like it is an interview or even a staff meeting. Invariable the best part of the interview is when you walk out and sigh with relief. That comfortable feeling would be great if I could feel it going into the first or second date.

One final thing I'd like to mention...

This was more difficult than I anticipated. I am trying to type as the feelings come out. I want to say I am excited about this opportunity to meet someone new. I am reticent about depending on the site matching me with a gentleman strictly choosing someone based on photo or words written. Words unspoken can be the most revealing. I want someone to be excited about dating me and focusing more on the positive versus their past bad experiences.
