I am an older, recently-widowed gentleman in reasonably good shape. I am interested in music, art, exercise, politics (leftist), the human condition. I place a high value on integrity, kindness. People say I have a good sense of humor. I have played the classic guitar off and on for 60 years. I worked as a medical transcriptionist and editor, and I have several blogs. I speak English and Spanish. I am still grieving the loss of my wife and want friendship for now. I own an old craftsman house, have what I believe is a Maine Coon cat and feed a feral cat who is semi-tame.
I think friendship is much more important than sex, although I am in good physical condition and have a normal libido. I am an atheist, but I'm not anti-religion. I have been a leftist all my life, but I am not pushy or preachy about my convictions. I have found over the years that I can often learn more from people whose viewpoints are different than mine. Years ago, I had lots of answers and not too many questions; now I have lots of questions and not so many answers.
I like to read, walk, cook, go out to dinner, be with friends and have good conversations. I do not drink, smoke, or use drugs and am not promiscuous. I was happily monogamous for over 25 years with my wife, who recently died, leaving both my cat and me missing her.
I am not interested in people who have drinking problems, who smoke, or who have drug problems. I want peace and am not into drama.
What I'm Looking For
Friendship first. Please remember I'm still grieving the loss of my wife and am just now sticking my toe in the water.
Be someone who is kind and ethical, someone who feels compassion for others, who likes being alive and likes being with someone who likes being alive. Be someone with a sense of humor, who loves language.
