Date someone special from British Columbia, Canada. someone who can laugh at themselves and not take themselves too seriously. i live in the moment and appreciate someone else who does the same. I don't like heavy drama at my age, i just would prefer laughter now that i have the time to enoy that.
Meet men and women from British Columbia, Canada. I'm retiring in June from a life of doing everything and ending my "many careers" with 20 years as teacher/administrator in a High School.-(oops -dare I say- chasing a pension !) and moving to Ontario. I am so excited about the millions of things I can put my energies into for the next, oh.. maybe 30 years ? !! My passion is to be outdoors and do what little I can to save the Earth from human related environmental calamity. I've always grown my own food- only 1/4 acre can produce enough for a family for the year. So I'm dreaming of buying a farm and having a farm club where members from Toronto can count on receiving their (non-GMO) sustenance as well as have a country place to visit and camp in summer while doing a few farm chores.
I am a pianist in my free time. Do you play an instrument ? I have lived "many lives" in my short sojourn on earth and learned too many useful things, farming, sailing, electrician, building, mechanics, etc. Doesn't sound too feminine, does it ? Believe me, I am feminine ! But the best part of life was having family, as that lasts forever.
I have a dream, but am flexible. I realize that a relationship, even with giving each-other time and space for our own creative endeavors, can't be one directional. Right now, I have a home in BC and one in Toronto. I'd also like to travel a little , again, perhaps exploring the geology of my destinations. Most of my desired archaeology designations are now quite dangerous, so maybe no middle east for a while. Friends in Australia have beckoned me back for a visit.
Friends and colleagues call me kind, sensitive and easy to build rapport with. Very little bothers me, and I extremely tolerant and gentle, but also passionate about honesty and truth so have been known to become an activist. I see myself as generous, but thrifty, living simply so as to have time for action, not spend it tidying up material possessions ! I believe in eating to live, not vice-versa, and I prefer to eat what grows, not manufactured packaged products- (and grow what I eat- hence my orchard).
Interests ? Really any project I take on becomes my interest... political, environmental, designing and building. If I ever have time again to get involved in live Theatre, I enjoy the teamwork and respectful camaraderie. I am doing repair work so I can sail my little Kolibri again ( maybe catch a few trout). Sure I loved to climb mountains, hike, camp, downhill ski, play tennis and swim when younger. Btu now I would be considered a slowpoke if I joined a team !
I am not conservative, as life is too short and exciting for that. I like to "climb trees barefoot" . I am comfortable with silence in company. Well, I believe we are social beings and retirement will probably be more meaningful if at least some of it can be shared with a partner !

Meet a soulmate from British Columbia, Canada. I have a good sense of humour which is very British and not everyone gets it! Anyhow I love someone who can make me laugh and is a good conversationalist. I don't have a particular type I am attracted to but definitely someone who looks after themselves like I do. I live in a small community not far from Vancouver which I prefer as I hate crowds. I have good friends and love animals and my two dogs are great. I have travelled to a lot of places in the world and feel blessed to have found a good life in Canada and have lived here now for 35 years. I am hoping to find a compatible companion to have fun with and enjoy life.
Date people from British Columbia, Canada. hopeful, committed, energetic, generous, political (completely opposed to Stephen Harper and his minions), feminist, loyal, family-centred, love dogs, less activist than I would like; looking for some one w/ similar qualities.
Meet someone special from Canada. My closest friends and family would describe me as spontaneous, friendly, generous, caring and smart. And very attractive.
I am blessed with 3 very unique and loving adult children and 3 beautiful granddaughters - and while my family is very important to me - they do not replace the space I feel I have in my life for an intimate relationship with a man. I am involved with volunteerism with a non-profit society, I study Spanish in an effort to master the language piece by challenging piece - and I also play around with singing a little. All of these "hobbies" are inclined to make me smile and give me a sense of happiness and acccomplishment. Quiet, solitary time is necessary for me - and Yoga is definitely a part of my core lifestyle. I am hoping to find someone with whom to share laughter, social occassions, our respective families, the small and daily routines of life , travelling and playing... all while resonating with one another at a very real, respectful, intimate and supportive level. I am looking for someone who is financially secure and enjoys a lifestyle that allows for a certain amount of freedom, spontenaity and adventure. I am, however, absolutley open to the unknown .... which is a good thing because... we have not yet met. Would you like to meet me?
Date men and women from Canada. I have had a great life, lived in 3 continents so far.... born in france, I also lived in Africa for almost 20 years, now in Vancouver, Canada.
I have been an artist for most of my adult life, first an actress in france, then a collector/jeweller in the Sudan, and a lapidary in Vancouver, BC.
I am now retired, free to enjoy my friends, my life, my time, new people.
I love going to nude beaches by the ocean, I read a lot, scientific books or novels.
I go to yard sales and auctions, I always bought and sold things I like for a while and then resell.
I love laughing with friends, or even by myself!
I enjoy watching HDTV like Oasis, don't really like going out to movies, I like watching movies at home.
For the moment, I don't have much social life as I am waiting for knee replacement surgery.
I have friends though, and love to see them and talk, eat together. I am thoughtful and considerate, I love that in my friends too.
my friends think I am quite funny, and beautiful, creative and interesting. They say I am getting better with age, like some good wines.
I love watching animals in nature, I am a contemplative, I love silence, and being alone.
Babies, flowers make me smile.
I am very happy and proud I lived in the Sudan for so many dusty- hot years, I learned a lot about myself and other cultures. I appreciated peoples' visions of islam, and its ramifications in all aspects of life.
I am so grateful for being alive, and almost healthy. I am grateful for my friends, they are my family here.
I would really love to meet a kind, funny, heart- intelligent man who has made lots of introspective trips and who is man enough to admit he has made a mistake, a man who has reflected on the differences between men and women, who loves and respect the woman he is with.
He is not promiscuous, he loves dancing and books, like the last one I read, 'The Biology of Belief'.
I would love to have a gentle/ kind relationship. sweet and loving, generous, forgiving, creative, lots of laughs and fun. Morose not wanted.
We all have been hurt, I would prefer someone who has moved on from the pain in his life, childhood and adult, and who is able to accept someone with sometimes challenging ideas or opinions, and is not afraid of a strong woman.
I love astrology as a way to introspect and reflect on how to grow up to be a better person.
I love humour, Chris Rock, George Carlin in america, Wanda Sykes, I love a man who always sees the funny side of a serious situation! who can laugh at himself/his partner in the middle of an argument.
Egyptians laugh a lot, they have a lot to cry about!!!!
I am passionate about generosity in political ideas/actions, I am rather liberal in my opinions/beliefs, and don't mind other people's radical ideas sometimes too!
One love! we are all on this planet to enjoy it with all it has to offer.
I would really prefer someone who has some knowledge of NVC (non-violent communication - or would like to explore/study this ), someone thoughtful and insightful, who can talk, listen or stay silent, a man's man, who is as easy with an axe as he is with a great book.
I like target practice up high in the mountains, hunting too for food (game is my prefered meat).
I also love tools, having been a jeweller for a long time, love handy men who know things and like to share their knowledge with a woman.
Meet a woman from Canada. My friends describe me as a funny, caring person wo is willing to help out if possible.
Spontanious joking and laughter are a must. You can get through almost anything if you can laught at youself.
I'm looking for honesty in a relationship. I am honest to a fault and cannot deal with someone who is not. It's a waste of time and energy.
Date a soulmate from Canada. i,m a fun person to be with..enjoy life, loves to laugh, loves to travel, golf, friendly..honesty, sincerity, caring....loves to exercise to get fit and healthy..real health concious..loves to dine out, socialize....would love to travel , i have acess to many vacation resorts and accommodations, would like to fully enjoy them, with the right guy.
The man i'm looking for is intelligent, healthy, honest and loving....he is patient enough to wait or consider my decision to be intimate with him...meaning when time is right....as most women need time and respect to make a relationship work.
Meet people from Canada. I am a very youthful 64 year-old who loves meeting new people and finding new experiences. But at the same time my long-time friends and family are important to me. I'm outgoing and extroverted and have a great curiousity for what the world has to offer. In recent years my travels have given me the desire to explore more countries and experience their cultures - 3 days in Venice left me wanting to spend a couple of weeks motoring around Italy - mingling, eating the food, drinking the wine and enjoying the history - the same with the day in Paris - the Eurostar from London is great for a one day trip - and London is one of my favourite cities.
I am a warm, caring and affectionate woman and can always be counted on when I commit to something. A love of laughter, a positive (cup half-full) attitude, spontaneity and a dry and subtle sense of humour are definitely characteristics of my personality. Since I always learn from my experiences, I am ready for the best relationship of my life - could that be you?
I enjoy volunteering in the community in a variety of events. Golfing has become part of my summer activities - but I certainly will never be really good - it's the fun and comraderie that counts! Plays, art openings, music, theatre, dinners out and just socializing with my friends and meeting new people - all make life interesting. Cooking and entertaining - what a great way to spend time with my friends. I dont' buy season's tickets but I can get into attending or watching a football, hockey or baseball game if the opportunity arises - I didn't go to an athletic university for nothing!
If you are a tolerant person and are open to new experiences and cultures, you are my kind of guy. No photo - sorry, no response.
. well hear we go... i'm self employed and single. lookig for someone special to spend some significant time with. i'm white of austrian decent. like hugs andkisses. lots of time outdoors . i'm clean and tidy.
. I'm friendly, active, enjoy playing pool and dancing in the winter, camping and fishing during the rest of the year. I'm looking for an active easy going guy who is open to new adventures, one who still has some fire. I'm quite independant and will go and do things on my own but it would be so nice to share the adventure with a partner.
. Very giving person with a huge heart. Have to keep my independance within a relationship. A mother and grandmother (who gets mistaken for the mother). Friendships are very important to me and I am very loyal to friends and family. I have a circle of amazing friends who are always "there" for me whenever and I cherish everyone of them. I have a very close relationship with my family and feel very strongly that without the unconditional love and support of family, one's life is less than complete. I have no time for any kind of abuse from anyone, especially a partner. Respect goes both ways...don't expect it if you don't give it. Appreciate a man who "acts" his age...meaning no temper tantrums or controlling personalities. Have a low threshold point for those that lie. Love surprises (good ones)! It's never about the gift...but the thought behind the gift. I am not a materialist person and shopping for myself is a chore! Love to get gifts for others though. Enjoy my home (and it is a home...not just a house), but love to travel and experience other cultures. I'm not a big meat eater, but not a vegan either. Love Indian, Italian, Mexican, French, Japanese, Ukranian/Polish and Greek food. The less greasy, the better! Can't drink red wine for the life of me but enjoy a glass of white wine now and then with dinner. Coffee is only now and then, but I love green tea. Love the theatre and movies and walks by the ocean. Enjoy an evening out and dressed up or just sitting and watching TV. I'm a nurturer, plain and simple. But I am not a "Wendy"! Peter Pans are not welcome! I am a giver more than a receiver in all aspects. Conflict drives me crazy but I'm always up for a positive challenge.
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
I truely believe that life would be so much nicer with a life partner but unless one magically apprears in my life magically i will take a chance with this media.
I know that most profiles one reads seem to be the same, creative soul mate wanted to wisk one away but no one says hay do you know how to get the cat hair out of the keyboard?
I have the life skills that comes from the highs and sad lows that we all experience over time that have made me what I am today. I am honest,realiable,organized,creative,adventurous,ne
ver been in jail, and seldon lie, I like white wine, micro beer, the annual Sturgis Motorcycle rally, driving back roads,photography, caring about the environment, and so much more.
I do not enjoy going to the mall but if it is an outdoor artsy anything count me in. I feel that it is important to take the time to enjoy others creativity from a giant sandcastle to a painting one can not quite understand.It would be so nice to share my hobbys with yours.
I think we should all take the time to be simply silly, there is too much overload of evil in the world. So splashing in tidel pools while laughing at nothing and everything while holding hands sounds heavenly.
I raised my married son on my own so enjoy spending time with him and his family when I can.I so enjoy having my 1st grandchild.
I have been on my own for a number of years. I do know that being in a loving committed relationship that is built on friendship first is so very important.
I belive in giving back to my community through volunterism.
I do have osteoarthrist with most of my joints replaced so I can not do sports but most certainly can cheer you and your favouite team on. I use a walker and cane to help me walk depending on what I am doing.
I enjoy reading mystery novels, writting what i call rambles,crafting,exploring new places and learning always.When out on drives I love to see what is out there to explore just around the bend in the road. You just never know what one might find from the simply beauty of a deer to an old barn that time forgot.
I enjoy tv with mystery cop shows topping my list along with HBO.I am not interested in late night talk shows.
I am an out going woman who is very active in an international organization for gals that is all about friendship and fun.
I have a number of tattoos that are mostly florals.
I am looking for a gent who is still not angry with their ex, has strong communitie ties and for them it is family 1st not their job if possible. I like mustaches.
He knows that it takes time,communication, patience and laughter to make any relationship work.
I live my life with honor,respect, positivity and try not to be too much of a negative soul/ bitch at times.
I do not like people who are negative,always critical of things, cling to past, have huge bellies,hunt for the fun of it not survival,are dirty,have low self esteme, expect someone else to "take" care of them and their belongings or are addicted to anything that damages your body.
Remember age is just a number it is your positivity and smile that attracts others..
"A good man is handy during the day. But for rock-ing my nights,I'll take a bad man every time." lol
. I have spent much of my life caring for others and now that my 'children' are grown with families of their own it's time for some attention to 'me'. I value time spent with family and friends. I like to be around others but also enjoy just sitting quietly enjoying the wonders of where we live.
I like to travel and see new things - whether it is an hour away or across the country. There is always something new to see and learn.
A sense of humor is important. Laughter is indeed the best medicine and one must be able to laugh at oneself as well.
I'm not very good at writing about myself so if you want to know more about me please be in touch.
