At this stage of my life, I never expected to be looking for someone with whom to share my remaining years. I was married for 47 years to my life companion, who died suddenly and unexpectedly. I am told frequently, I do not look my age. Some folks tell me I am 73, but I don't believe them. I have 2 grown children and 7 grandchildren, who love their Granddad. My personality is friendly and outgoing, and I get along with everyone. I like meeting new friends and love the beach and traveling. I enjoy riding my road bicycle and also have a mountain bike, but seldom ride off-road. I am a committed christian of a presbyterian denomination and my politics, as well as my theology, is conservative. I enjoy music, but very little of the modern offerings heard on the top 40. I love the beach and go there often (Ocean City, MD, where I own property). I do not care for cold weather and usually go to some tropical destination, during the winter, for at least 4 weeks. I like ballroom dancing, cruises and am a news and current events junkie and pass along my wisdom to my grandchildren, who will listen (and most do). Since becoming widowed, I have concluded that I don't want to grow old alone. Currently I am not a paying member, but at some point may re-up if my present relationship does not work out.
