In A Nutshell
Ok, I start with that distance matters. New England is my home area. I wish all of you good luck in your search but please only reply if you are in New England.
All relationships begin with a connection to something, then grows from there (or not). Sometimes what starts as a connection grows to friend, casual relationship to serious relationship. For me it is the first connection point and then the journey can begin.
I am a recently retired finance executive, now enjoying the next phase of my life in Maine. (I have lived in other states/cities, but my home is New England.) I very much enjoy traveling, reading, Broadway plays (also MSMT), and walking. I like to cook and now that I have the time experimenting more with different menus.
I like to laugh - particularly at myself, I very much like good conversations about current events, economy, sports (love Patriots),food and wine reviews. I read the WSJ every day; call me silly but I still like a real newspaper to hold and read.
The One I Am Looking For
I am looking for companionship, (casual to serious relationship) someone to go to dinner, theater, walks, exploring all that Maine/New England has to offer. Someone who enjoys his own company but also likes the company of others. The person must be a non - smoker and not have cats. (Sorry I am allergic to them.)
