In A Nutshell
I love life and most people. I am a pretty easy going person, who makes an effort not to be judgmental or critical of others. A few of my personal joys are poetry and painting, both of which I am teaching myself with help from friends and practice. I really like making new aquaintances and friends. Friendship means a great deal to me and I don't take it lightly. I get a kick out of most sports and outdoor activities and take pride in being in good shape. A lot of people mistake me for being around 60, but I don't want to be vain about appearances. I believe a healthy attitude is critical to a well balanced individual plus a positive personal spirituality. Moderate to no alcohol has made me a happy, healthier person. Without being narcissisitic, I think I am a pretty good prospect as a loyal friend and/or close partner.
The One I Am Looking For
In talking about myself above I think it sort of sums up what matters to me in another person. Of course a sincere, close partnership and love is obviously not just any personal relationship. Kindness and warmth are very key traits I look for in a woman who could be a potential mate. I like to believe I will accept her as she is and not try to change her and I would hope my possible partner would give me the same consideration.
I'd Just Like to Add
It seems people can have very different interests and still work out well as a couple. A healthy life style is important to me; good nutrition, all kinds of exercise, social activities, etc. Making sure I am aware of what my partner wants to do or not do is always critical. Having had a career in public service with the state of New Mexico I naturally care about the community well being and wish the best for the state. I attempt to be progressive in my public participation and local activities. All of these types of questions about great relationships are not easily answered because they tend to be kind of hypothetical or ideal and general in nature and of course each individual is unique.

My Top Interests:
Crafts and Creating
I simply enjoy playing with paint, oil pastels, charcoal etc. and seeing what happens. What can I say? Creating anything is a natural high for me, even if I am the only one who likes it. I love seeing other people's work equally.
Nature and Outdoors
Nature's beauty and lots of fresh air keep me alive, happy and young. As a distance runner I have always gotten to know my surroundings intimately, including the mean dogs to avoid or befriend (diplomacy). When in doubt go out for a walk or run to help solve your issues. Endorphins help
Ever since childhood I lived to run, swim, bike, play sports and try new games. I still feel the same way and realize now it's a gift to love being healthy. It's not a chore my body craves doing some physical activity.I like some risk sports like downhill skiing or motorcycle riding but not where I don't have control of the outcome where you might die or others might, just for a sport. No need for false heroics.
