I enjoy music, dining out, movies, auctions, travel, plays, concerts, art fairs, country line dancing (all dancing with a partner), eat quite healthy, enjoy remodeling/redecorating my home and love to cook/bake. I am a retired special ed teacher and former supervisor of graduate student teachers for a university. I believe that as people get to know each other, they will either want to spend more time together, or they won't, so friends is a good start. Fun facts: I recently took a tai chi class and a boxing class, and I enjoy oil painting when I have time.

What would you like to do on a first date?

I enjoy a variety of activities and am easy to please. Probably a first meeting would be a relaxing breakfast or lunch with conversation. However, I am open to anything else we would mutually agree upon.

Why you should get to know me:

I love life, have a high energy level, own my home, and am at a point in life where I want to enjoy what time is left and have fun. I am optimistic, sincere, caring, personable and a romantic at heart - but down to earth at the same time. If you like animals, I have a beautiful Lhasa Apso. If you like golf, I am joining a league to start playing again. I am always open to learning new activities and experiencing new adventures.

What have past relationships taught you?

Because I had a loving relationship, I still believe I would like to find that again. Ideally, don't we all really want to be loved and accepted for who we are by a special someone? I also learned that a good relationship allows space and time for each person to pursue special interests along with sharing special times.

Describe some of the most important things in your life:

Most important is maintaining my good health and agility. Exercise is a daily habit, done while listening to my favorite music. My projects are important to me: photos transferred to DVDs, redecorating my home room by room (I do most of the work myself), oil painting when I have time, Family and friends are important. I recently visited family in Texas and in Illinois. I would love to travel, especially with someone to share the good times with, but the fact that I do not have that person will not hold me back.

Describe your perfect day:

As long as I wake up in the morning, it is a perfect day to me. I always manage to fill my days with a variety of activities as mentioned before.

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

We are all on this site looking for relationships at different levels, but they all have to start somewhere and I hope we all find what we need. Smiles to all!
