In A Nutshell
Honesty and a great sense of humor is important.
I enjoy projects. Editing videos (and occasionally shooting video) is a favorite past time. I enjoy music of all types, and I can play piano and organ. I consider myself neither a pianist nor an organist -- I just know how to play those instruments, and I enjoy playing.
I have a small group of close friends. While I am up for social events, I believe less is more there.
Travel is awesome. My favorite US city is Seattle, and my favorite city on the planet is Rome. I wish I could describe the feeling I had the first time I stood in the Colosseum. I would like to visit the Greek Isles, China, South America, and return to Europe again. Certain cruise destinations would be fun as well. Please do not be afraid to fly!
The One I Am Looking For
Honesty, compassion, and humor are traits that are must haves. I like people who laugh and can laugh at themselves. I like women who can take charge of their own lives. Most of all, I want a partner. I don't want to make all the decisions, and I don't want to have the decisions made for me.
I enjoy going out and doing things, seeing things, and being part of things. I also enjoy the quiet evenings at home. There just have been too many of those lately!
I'd Just Like to Add
I retired in June 2017 from a job I had nearly 40 years. I have no intention of staying retired; however, I want to be extremely picky over what I choose to do. I want to do something that I will find fulfilling and enjoyable. I am not too concerned about income, but insurance would be nice!
I recently took up running (well, mostly walking) to get back into shape. Distractions over the past few years have taken my mind off of my own physical well-being with regards to being in shape. I am taking steps to rectify that situation.
Since I value honesty, I too must be honest. I've been single for a long, long, long time. I don't know how to be anything else, so please understand I may need some serious prompting in this area.
