Date men from Canada / British Columbia / Vernon, 65 year old

Date a man from Vernon, Canada. Friends would describe me as outgoing, friendly, generous, empathetic for those in need and an outdoor enthusiast who stays in shape. For the past 30 years in BC I have had a very active the outdoors, in both work and play and, have traveled extensively in the province. I've kayaked many places in the inside passage and in the Queen Charlottes (Haida Gwaii). as well as the Yukon and Stikine rivers, the Bowron Lake loop, Myrtle Lake, etc. I have traveled in Central America with a backpack staying with families (not a four star hotel kinda guy), Ecuador, (incl. the Galapagos), Brazil, and last summer to Sweden and Norway for a month. My favorite might be Cuba....4 times and want to go back before the embargo is lifted. What I have always been struck by in all the developing Spanish speaking countries I have visited is the importance of 'f'amily' and the gentle nature of their social interactions (for the most part)....very sweet, caring people by-in-large. I hope to continue exploring BC, the Yukon and many overseas places and sharing these adventures with someone of similar mind, philosophies and curiousity.
Nearly all persons on this site of midlife age or more have had one or more 'difficult' relationships (at least from my 'surmizing') and hopefully have learned that it really is about learning to love oneself first if we are to have a lasting, loving, satisfying relationship with another person. I have been down this path a couple of times and have learned a lot each time. I'm ready to apply what I've learned about myself and share the rest of my life with a woman who is secure in herself as well. Personal honesty, high integrity and empathy for all creatures, human and non-human are at the top of my list for a partner....a love and appreciation of life in all its forms. I want to start as friends sharing small and large adventures and the day to day pleasures and see where it goes. Living in the moment is becoming part of my life strategy as well.....the moment is what we can really count on.....don't miss it!

Meet someone special from Vernon, Canada. friendley and looking for someone to spend time with that enjoys having fun and spending time with other friends with out all the guilt trips that normally go with a relationship my time is now to enjoy all the good things in life without feeling bad about it
