With the recent passing of my wife of 30 years I am moving on with my life. I am a outgoing person who makes friends easily. I am also a very loyal one woman type man and I believe it this comment firmly. I have a strong believe in God but do not attend church. I prefer to be active outside and some of the way I spend my free time is mountain biking and walking the dog around the loop trail in Wenatchee, exploring new back roads in the hills, day hikes near mountain lakes where I can take reflection shots with my camera, car rides, yard work (love growing flowers!) , feeding the wild birds (I prefer to feed Goldfinches and Humming birds) and fishing. When I get vacation in the summer I love going to the beach, or exploring some of our great national parks as I have been to many of them, exploring ghost towns or whatever looks like it might be fun as I am willing to try new things. I also have a witty humor and love word play and will keep you smiling for many hours but I can be serious as well. I am told I have an easygoing upbeat personality and always look for the good in any situation. I like watching tv and movies on cold winter evenings and snuggling on the couch. I accept new friends easily so meeting your friends will be no problem for me. I have a half Sheppard half chow named Tasha. She is my company for right now but can't hold up her side of the conversation so I hope you can. Right now I am looking for a friendship that will eventually turn into a long lasting relationship. I am not afraid of commitment. I would like to email you for a while before we meet. No sense in rushing to fast and making a mistake. I am ultimately looking for a relationship that will last me the rest of my life. Looking for my best friend in life. Someone to share in the great things that life has to offer. I am looking for someone who is not into the bar scene or needs alcohol to have a good time. Someone who loves the outdoors and being under a nice blue sky and sunshine during the spring summer and fall. One who loves to watch movies and cuddling on the couch during the winter. I need someone who likes their back rubbed until they are so comfortable they fall asleep in my arms. One who does not mind if I like to cook for them sometimes. One who will let me do 50% of the housework so we can have more free time to spend together. I need someone who loves lots of hugs and kisses. One who likes to receive hidden love notes now and then. One who doesn't mind to hear the words "I Love You. "Is that someone You?If this sounds good to you please write back.
