Date women from Canada / British Columbia / Metchosin, 62 year old

Date someone special from Metchosin, Canada. Spring has sprung and I'm coming out of hibernation.
I would love to meet someone who also thinks we should be ourselves, but be our best selves...who would like to share some summer activities and see where it leads.
Favourite things to do are road trips; picnics in out of the way places; beach combing; hiking; spontaneous exploration; renewing love of previous activities like canoeing and kayaking; watching foreign films; reading accompanied by a glass of wine or cup of tea while listening to music; and lots of good conversation. Getting dressed up to go out occasionally is fun too!
I'm attracted to those who are interested in an equal partnership and who have done enough thoughful reflection to be reasonably comfortable in their own skin and have a somewhat balanced approach to all that life might throw at them. Spiced with some spontaneity and great wit and you have a winning combination for me!
If any of this strikes a note, please get in touch.

Meet a soulmate from Metchosin, Canada. I live in Victoria B.C., one of the most beautiful cities in Canada and the Pacific Northwest and conducive to lots of outdoor activities: beach walking, hiking, biking, tennis, swimming in rivers and lakes, boating, camping, bird watching, exploring flora and fauna - all the things I enjoy doing on a regular basis.
I am very affectionate and enjoy cuddling, holding hands, expressing tenderness in many different ways. Even though I have a lot of common sense and a very practical side I also love to laugh and play and be silly. My friends consider me intelligent, charming, attractive, and fun to be with.
Now that I am no longer teaching foreign languages to high school students I pursue old and new interests: hiking, biking, long walks or just being in nature, socializing with friends or making new ones. I sing in a folkmusic choir, go dancing, paint landscapes in acrylic, look after my large garden, and read voraciously. I like adventure but also the finer things of life such as art, music, travel, and the beauty of the world around us. In order to find balance I focus on occasional solitude, quiet times, introspection, simplicity. My active spiritual life is supported by meditation, yoga, tai chi, and a philosophical approach to challenges that present themselves.
I've been around long enough to know that it takes time and effort to find and nurture a healthy relationship, and for both partners to thrive in it. For me love needs time to evolve and it's made easier with a partner who shares my values and some of my interests. Important criteria are trustworthiness, mutual respect, and physical compatibility.
Even though I already live in paradise I enjoy venturing outside and discovering new places in the world. I've travelled all over Europe, been to Alaska, Hawaii, Mexico, the southwestern US, the Canadian Prairies, and the Rocky Mountains. Next I'd like to explore Central America, Bali, and New Zealand.
I would like to connect with someone who can appreciate my vivacious and affectionate nature and who is comfortable in his own skin. Friends first is fine with me.

Date a woman from Metchosin, Canada. I am an honest, caring, trustworthy individual looking for someone with similar attributes. I am kind of old-fashioned when it comes to dating, and like to take things slowly. What I have learned in life is that with love and humor you can pretty well overcome everything.
I am thankful for the accomplishments that I have achieved so far and I am looking forward to more leisurely activities in this chapter of my life.
The person I am looking for, is kind, respectful, sensitive with a good sense of humor, and who believes in a healthy lifestyle.
Could it be you?

Date a soulmate from British Columbia, Canada. We're heading into summer and although it looks like a chilly one so far, it would be nice to warm it up with some great shared activities and, if it's there, some naturally flowing romance.
My closest friends would describe my best qualities as very present and attentive, loyal, open-minded, compassionate, humorous and fun.
I'm hoping to attract someone with the same qualities and more, who I feel a relaxed comfort level with and at the same time good (or great!) physical and emotional chemistry.
Trustworthiness, an inclination to laugh more often than not and an interesting mind are very attractive to me.
Although my profile says I live in Metchosin, I live in Victoria.
