I've had a permanent ileostomy since 2015, due to UC that finally did my colon in. I'm interested in making new friends/travel partners, and would also be open to the possibility of a relationship with the right person. I would definitely like to travel more in the future and start working on my bucket list. :) If you are someone who is looking for a friend to travel with, shoot me a message. This does not have to be about starting a relationship. I am interested traveling to the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Yosemite and the Sequoia National forest, among other destinations. I have not been to any of these, and it's time, haha.

I endeavor to keep myself fit and healthy, but I'm not a fanatic about it. I enjoy watching just about any sport, and really enjoy playing golf and basketball. When I'm not working from home (healthcare IT) I may be golfing, playing with my dog, gaming, reading, watching a movie or series, or grilling/smoking meats.

I have two kids in their late 20s who are independent. I lost my husband to cancer in 2019.

Full disclosure-- I am 6 feet tall, with a thin build. It doesn't matter to me how tall or short you are. But I know some men may have a height maximum, so I'm putting that fact out there to save time. :)
