Ready to Meet the Lady of My Dreams!


I’m a retired from law enforcement, a non-smoker and rarely drink. I am a Christian, though I haven’t attended church regularly in a while. Politically I am a conservative. I have a grown daughter who is married to a fine young man, both of whom I love very much. My hobbies are painting, reading, playing guitar, coin collecting and writing. I enjoy watching movies. Going out to see a movie is great, but snuggling on a cozy couch while watching a movie is even better. I enjoy music – mostly classic rock and 80s stuff. I love to travel. I’ve visited more than half the States (I want to see them all someday) and one venture into Mexico several years ago. My bucket list includes a Caribbean cruise and trip to Europe. I love to have fun and see new things. My kind of fun is eclectic: outdoorsy stuff (fishing, hiking, spelunking), spending a free day exploring flea markets for hidden treasures, attending a coin show or a romantic night out on the town. I like visiting historical or interesting places. Going to the zoo or visiting a botanical garden is also great. That being said, I can be very comfortable just staying around the house and enjoying movies or card games. I’m not a sports nut, but I appreciate baseball (St. Louis Cardinals specifically). I have golfed, but am far from getting a tour with the PGA. I definitely prefer mini golf! I have a good sense of humor, enjoy comedies and like stand-up comedians such as Brian Regan and Jim Gaffigan. I enjoy eating out from time to time, but not habitually. I like to cook (my personal menu ability stretches from grilling cheeseburgers to the more exotic and time consuming Chicken Korma) and enjoy sharing home-cooked meals. I love animals. I’m not a member of PETA by any means, but I believe in treating animals humanely. I am a dog lover and am guilty of coddling if not spoiling my pets. As far as relationships are concerned I believe strongly in integrity. This includes honesty and fidelity. I have no tolerance for cheaters and schemers. I will be honest and faithful and accept nothing less from the person I’m with. I believe in treating a woman like a queen and enjoy earning the respect of that wonderful lady as we get to know each other better. What I am looking for is someone who is both honest and faithful. I don’t like drama or trauma. I’m not looking for someone with a Victoria’s Secret model body – in fact I prefer women who aren’t the size of a pixie stick. True beauty is from within in my opinion. The true beauty of a woman is her heart and her thoughts. I don’t judge people based on their financial situation. Some of the worst people I’ve known had lots of money. I consider success as being happy and comfortable, not being filthy rich or having a powerful position with a Forbes 500 business. This is me in a nutshell. I’m not tall or built like Mr. Universe, I’m not rich or command a corporate division, but I am loyal, fun loving and a good listener.
