Date someone special from British Columbia, Canada. I have also been told that I am a risk taker....not extreme sports, though. I look forward to getting together with anyone who continues to be amazed by the wonder of the world and life, loves trivia and all kinds of tripe, is still awed by nature's wonders and beautiful music...or share with me your heart's desires. Someone who understands the delicate balance of conversation so that both parties feel heard; all the other stuff is window dressing that we can gradually and gracefully disclose. You could be anyone--I am limited only by my imagination. I become small and confined in terms of describing the unique human being whom I would hope to meet. I know that I am open to meeting you as though we met at a friend's house, in a coffee shop, or as a man in the next seat to me on an airplane. I would be charmed I'm sure if any of these scenarios were our meeting place but that is not the case. If any of this resonates with you, please drop me a line.
Meet a soulmate from British Columbia, Canada. I have been separated for two years after a long term marriage and am currently working on a divorce. I am looking for a travel partner and 'new best friend'. Winters for the past 4-5 years have been spent in Arizona, love the sunshine! Photography has been a hobby of mine for the past 20 years, and of course, these days, computers go hand-in-hand. 'Dating' at this stage of my life scares me, however, it is probably the only way to find what I am looking for. I am a little shy in a large group of people until I get to know them. I am an honest, caring individual with a sense of humour. I have many friends and am fairly outgoing. I have worked most of my life with my last job being self-employed as a bookkeeper/computer consultant. I am looking for someone to share the remainder of my time here on earth, a caring, respectful and trustworthy individual. Cycling and walking are my main forms of exercise at present, but i would like to try golf in future.
I have traveled the world somewhat, seeing Australia, new Zealand, Japan, Turkey, Greece, Italy, Germany, England, Ireland, France, etc. love Europe, off-beaten tracks, seeing how people live in other parts of the world. Would love to see Cuba and maybe parts of S. America.
My two kids (now in their 40's) are both successful individuals and I am proud of each. Family is important to me, but since separating have not been home for Christmas, spending it with new friends in Arizona. Although I own my place I live in, if I found the right individual I could relocate.
If you think I am what you are looking for, would love to hear from you.

Date a soulmate from Canada. I am finally ready to have that very special man come into my life. A man who is masculine but tender, strong but soft, and who understands the meaning of interdependence. My ideal relationship is to be joined at the heart but not joined at the hip. I love close time together but need some space to be the individual that really am. I am financially and emotionally independent and would love to find those qualities in that spcial man. He will be nurturing, but not controlling; very bright but not an intellectual snob; educated (in some way) and sophisticated but humble; socially liberal, but financially conservative; loving, sexy, and oh so interesting....
As for me... first, my age. I am told constantly that I look and act more like a person 10 to 15 years younger than I really am. I am very healthy and pretty fit. I had a hard time deciding which body type to choose from the list because I am athletic and work at the toned part, but I also have curves. Of course, they are all in the right places..(lol).
I had a very rewarding career in the helping professions but was able to retire 5 years ago and then pursue my dream of living on Vancouver Island.
I have good sense of humour that can lean toward the irreverant at times, and I truly am able to laugh at myself. I hope that you can as well.
In years past, I was an avid horsewoman and tennis player. Note that I said "avid" , which is not the same as "accomplished." I stopped riding when my beloved horse got too old to carry a passenger. After he died in 2006, I never had the heart to get another horse. The same is true of my dog who died 2 1/2 years ago. I still play a little tennis, and golf - sort of. Let's just say that I have clubs and I am a good sport who would not delay you on the course.
Politically, I would describe myself as a social liberal and a fiscal conservative.
I am a spiritual person, but not particularly religious and have no affiliation to any organized religion.
I have tried to download a photo without much luck as yet, but I continue to work on it.
Meet a woman from Canada. I am a confident, caring, honest, romantic, open minded and down to earth woman with a sense of humour. I am looking for similar qualities in a man. I am comfortable in blue jeans or an evening dress. I believe a relationship is give and take but never measured because it shouldn't be.
I am a CFL fan, I also enjoy the NFL and golf. I love music (except Rap and Opera), walking, dancing, dinner-movies-concerts with friends and especially candlelight dinners, walking on the beach or cuddling in front of the fireplace with that special man in my life. So if you think we might have something in common let's chat or we'll never know.
To me my partner is my best friend, my lover whom I trust, love and look up to more than anyone else in my world. It would it include a sense of humour, fitness, confidence, romantic, emotional balance .... and whatever else you bring to the table.
. This is difficult for me as I have never done this before and did not ever think that I would. I love my life but there definately are times when it would be more fun and satisfying to have someone to share it with. Ideally I will find someone who shares my love of animals, nature, is environmentally aware and responsible, is keen to travel, is interesting and interested in life, loves a good discussion and enjoys a great cup of coffee!
. My friends would describe me as very loyal and caring person. My grandchildren can always make me laugh
i so enjoy their honesty and their spin on life.,
I hope to meet a sincere easy going man who enjoys travelling, exploring museums in new places, outdoor theater. Outdoor/ indoor musical concerts. Enjoy all music except rap and heavy metal.. I am seen Bryan Adams. Jane Arden, and a couple others. Missed the Righteous brothers but have a good list going who I want to hear.
Love going to open markets gives you a feel for the place your in.
Would like to meet someone who likes to cook. Experience different tastes.
Would like to meet over coffee or just a walk to get to see where we want to go with it if it is a mutual liking .
. EMAILS ONLY. I DO NOT RESPOND TO WINKS.
Attraction may start a relationship but LOYALTY, TRUST, definitly COMMON INTERESTS are what maintains it. If you are ready to start the rest of your life, so am I.
Fitness and good health are primary for me. I am very young physically and mentally. Happy and witty, outgoing and affectionate girl/lady with a youthful attitude and laughter in her heart, known for her integrity, honesty, good values and morals. Being unpretentious and non-materialistic, I am very frugal and the simpler things in life are enjoyable to me.
My 2 sons are successful adults, married to great gals and have blessed me with 4 grandsons. I have a very high regard for family and friends and occasionally love entertaining them over good food/good wine.
MY EDUCATION: High School, 2 years Business Administration College and 3 years University. I took early retirement and enjoy every moment. I was very fortunate to have the opportunities of traveling extensively over my life having lived on 2 continents and traveled to 3 continents with visits to more than 29 countries. Paris was my home for a few years. It was so great to have had those opportunities and to learn so much of other cultures.
Being on or by water is a favorite. There is nothing like the outdoors and nature in any seasons. Music starts/ends my day as I enjoy soft jazz, 50s60s, some country and other types of music. If you like GARDENING that would be great but not a necessity.
I would like to meet a fit gentleman who has similar interests and inspirations. It is important to take the time to enjoy life and all its adventures. A beautiful smile, stimulating intelligent conversation, the closeness of a warm and loving man, considerate and thoughtful, holding hands, hugs, that certain look will make my heart beat. You don't need me to complete you, but you know we are better when we are together. You donРІР‚в„ўt have to live in my pocket nor I in yours. It is OK to need a little space for ourselves. We can call it РІР‚СљYOU time, ME time and US timeРІР‚Сњ.
I'm looking for a life long partner, companion, my friend and a good lover who will take pride in me as I in him. You love to laugh, remembering that life is meant to be enjoyed to the fullest and with the right person any activity can be enjoyable. You are a sincere gentleman with some recent photos on your profile, at least 5'8" tall, 60 to 70, healthy in body and mind, on the LEANER side, have good self esteem and live life with integrity. You are warm and affectionate, flexible and considerate, non controling, loyal and the one who will make me laugh. I would like to be with the one who is able to listen with his heart and his head, that gentle someone who is kind, caring and enjoys holding hands and is not hesitant about appropriate public displays of affection and have a good sense of humour.. You carry little baggage, are emotionally and financially happy with yourself as I am.
LOOKING FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU
. I like the llittle moments in life . I want be able to wake up each morning and be happy I have a partner who can share these moments with me .
i have no time for people who are down on themselves or others. Leave all baggage behind you . Seize The Day and make the best of it . Won't tolerate moods or the deep freeze. If you have something to say do so and get on with it .
My partner will have to be Honest Kind tolerant,open minded passionate and have known a woman well enough to know that not all love is restricted to the bedroom. His love making has to be totally free and knowledgeable about a woman's body. I'm not about to teach. you .
. I have recently moved to the Okanagan from Saskatoon. So far it is great, but it would be nice to have someone to explore the area with. I am out-going and meeting very nice people but would like a special someone. If you are looking for a caring, genuine, honest lady it could be me. Like to spoil those I love, but need that reciprocated. Fighting or hostility in a relationship is a waste of time.
. Discribing yourself is not easy.My friends would say I was private,dependable,honest,dry sense of humour and do not like people who judge others,who areunkind,dishonestand self centered.I think I would say that too. Right now Im gratefull for every day, its a gift .I would really like to learn how to dance better,to travel more esp on P.E.I.and surrounding areas and to have someone to share it all with. Someone who is a partner, who shares in everything,including cooking(not my favorite thing) and is on a spiritual path.Im slow at making friends and talking to new people,but once I know you look out!
. My life has been very full with diverse experiences and adventures and now, almost into retirement (I sure like the Spanish word, 'jubilado') I intend to continue that way. At this moment I have a more spiritual context to swim in since I am taking the time to slow down and appreciate. Sometimes it's a challenge to arrive there each day since I have defined myself for too long by what I do/accomplish/create etc. But waking up to 2 waggy dogs sure helps, they make me laugh and remind me of the light side of life.
What I'm looking for in a Relationship is humor, friendship, compatibility, separate lives intersecting with love, respect, shared values (like peace, justice, equality), a commitment to communicate with honesty and caring, a genuine desire to rise to the challenge of change and to support the growth and excitement of this process for both.
I don't know who said this but I like it'..."Life is change, growth is optional, choose wisely"
I love great quotes. And did I mention dogs? and most animals, music, reading and writing, gardening, kids, recycling, hiking and swimming in lakes, dancing and yoga, movies, traveling, ginger chocolate and the company of great friends and family?
. It's most interesting to read of the individual lives, and times, of people on this particular Website.
Some facts about me :
Having been raised on the shores of Okanagan Lake (...most fortunately) here in beautiful south central B.C., I continue with a lifelong love of water sports (including swimming instructor, CYA Class 2 Sailor, kayaker now too) and the Great Outdoors. That meshed with raising a family (and being at home with my 2 children in their early years), and I have 2 marvelous grandchildren now.
I developed a strong career in the financial services industry, over a productive and satisfying 30 years.
The people who know me best would likely describe my personality as positive and proactive, enjoying both challenge and responsibility. I have an insatiable sense of curiosity about our natural world , and ALL of its' inhabitants.
I am presently re-focusing career and volounteer work to carve out more personal free time . I wish to share, as a true companion, more of this Great Adventure of Life....
Some possible facts about you .
SHARING much of an abundant life....with a man who enjoys the full scope of good companionship - from adventure-planning to cozy moments of wintertime reading by the fireplace, from a night out at the symphony to gearing up for a summertime kayak trip, can be wonderful. I enjoy the company of a more traditional type of man, confident, and at ease with himself, who enjoys a relationship based on earned trust and quiet respect. Caring proactively for oneself's health and well-being, and that of his family and friends in an "entertaining" way, really appeals to me.
The "Match Factor " - will it alight ?
I can be a hopeless romantic - no -that would be HOPEFUL romantic ! I certainly enjoy the shared excitement of exploring new destinations, and seeking aerial horizons. Also, taking a point or two from across the tennis net could be better yet !
One of the many rich aspects of life and times NOW is matching a character that has had many wonderful (and .. a few not so wonderful...c'est la vie ) life experiences, with another whose perspectives and interests jive.
As much as I am obviously a good sport, I truly enjoy being with a man who brings out the lively feminine side in me.
If you sense there may be some dynamics at play here, I would be interested in receiving an E-Mail from you via this excellent Website.
