Hi! I am looking for a companion with whom to share some of the many activities I enjoy. The way I see it, life is better sharing moments, laughs, views, affection and challenges with a partner.
I know how to live on my own and I do like times of solitude and privacy but I think in general, that it is better to share the ride together.
I am intelligent, athletic, energetic and adventurous...also realistic enough to laugh at my mistakes! I like to have fun, in work and play. I am honest and open and respect truth.
Being outside is something I enjoy. I like cycling, inline skating, skiing (I am a part time ski instructor), hiking...am I missing something that YOU like to do?...Other interests include dancing, traveling, camping, just being outside (or inside watching thunderstorms!). There is a quieter side of me that appreciates "The Arts". I enjoy watching and listening to live professional concerts and plays. (I'm not a big fan of TV).
Being Catholic is an integral part of my life. I like being Catholic and appreciate our church. I know our Church is not perfect....because people are part of it, but I see past that to the beauty which Christ himself established.
Of great importance is my family. I was blessed with loving parents. Both my Dad and then my Mom passed away this last year. It's been a roller coaster year but things are settling down. I have sisters in the area and a couple of my children within driving distance. I like to spend time with those whom I love. Although we are close, there is always room in my heart and life to include another. What's missing is a close partnership relationship in my life.
I recently "retired" but am working part time. I view my work with children who have special needs, as part of my ministry.
