Introduction

I am an active "60 something" woman who has been widowed for about three years. I have many great gal friends but miss having a guy friend to talk to. I am an active person, I like walking every day, I ride a Harley, have a boat, mostly for my grand kids, and do enjoy going on bicycle rides with them. I enjoy canoeing as well and crafts. I teach a knitting class. I have a couple of snowmobiles for Wisconsin winters. I love dogs but do not have one currently, am not ready to be tied down to one. I am politically conservative and active in local politics. I have a CC permit. I am a Christian and am involved in church activities. I do not smoke or drink. I love road trips, love to go to the Keys when the winter gets long. I am on a hot air balloon crew and enjoy going to the competitions. Some of my friends say I am a bit shy, others say I am quite outgoing, I just think it depends on the situation. I have a MA degree from the U of Minnesota, a BS from Pacific Union College. My work was in chemical dependency and adolescent psychiatry and I loved it! I have two sons, both physicians, and four grandsons.

The person I am looking for...someone who is active, has interests, is somewhat independent, is willing to try new things, is a good friend and is able to carry on a conversation, has a sense of humor, takes care of himself, is a Christian, likes to work together on projects. Some display of affection is nice. I like dressing up and dressing down and it would be nice if my friend would enjoy either/or as well.

I like good conversation, occasional dining out, good coffee, grand kids, family activities, winter, summer, and fall. Not so crazy about spring. I like to shop and explore caves. I enjoy yard work, snow shoveling, do not particularly care for organized sports. I would rather like to be involved than to be a spectator. It is okay for my friend to like them though, I am able to entertain myself and do need sometime to myself. During football is a good time for that. I would prefer to have someone who would like to attend church with me and I try to go weekly. I really am not looking for the perfect man and realize that none of us are perfect, but these are just some of the things I admire, respect and enjoy.

Essays

What I'd like to do on a first date...

I think a walk in the park, a boat ride, something that leaves room for conversation and lunch would be nice.

My past relationships have taught me...

To love, to forgive, to laugh, to cry, to be considerate, to not always take things too seriously.

To me, being an Adventist means...

Putting God first, others second and self last.

In five years, I see myself

I plan to take several nice road trips, take some motorcycle trips, spend a winter in a warm place, spend a summer in Europe, make new friends, spend time with old friends, gather my friends from college days for a weekend of reminiscing, finish some quilts, stain my house, finish up some landscaping projects, hopefully find a good Christian significant other, always work toward being a better Christian.

My favorite Bible passage is...

John 3:16. It talks of the great hope God has for us and gives us hope.

One final thing I'd like to mention...

I believe relationships start with friendship, some go further, others stay good friends. Consequently I believe in getting to know someone to see where it goes. Right now I would just enjoy some male company.
