I am retied, financially secure and ready to meet that special someone for which to slowly develop and foster a long term relationship. I enjoy; mountain biking, snow skiing, going to the gym and some hiking, I would like to get back into attending plays and concerts or just cuddle on the couch and watch a good movie. I do not follow any sports at any level and prefer to spend time enjoying the outdoors, or engaged in intellectual discourse. I am retired Army and I have had the opportunity to travel fairly extensively throughout Europe and other countries. I enjoy dining out, especially discovering new restaurants of various ethnic cuisines. I am a goer and enjoy exploring areas of historical interest. I do not claim any specific religious denomination, but I am a believer. I do not live alone, I have a female roommate who is my greatest friend and for now my only confident, our relationship is purely platonic and our bond is strong, she will always be a part of my life. I am not a hardcore political junkie, but I do have conservative views, which were forged in my world travels, personal experiences and the ability to critically think. I am an introvert, but once I get to know you I am open and friendly. I am easy going and do not get caught up in ridiculous petty minutiae, I have never seen an episode of Game of Thrones and all reality TV is BS.
