The longest relationship I was in was 28 years.
As I got older I was quite proud of myself because I seemed to be getting more patient but then I realised that I just didn't give a s**t anymore.LOL
I have been retired for 17 years with an indexed Gov't pension I was with Public Works as a property manager. . My home is mortgage free. I have been separated for over 14 years and I am tired of being alone. I am a gentleman, kind, thoughtful,respectful, compassionate, sensual, tactile, attentive romantic and a good listener. I want someone to be my friend and to walk with me hand in hand as we experience the magic of life together. I want a soul partner to know and love every square inch of my body as I know and love hers. I want to see the beauty in life not only through my eyes but through yours so it is more than doubled and I want to halve the hardships in life for you as I help to carry them. I am in excellent health. I am not a jock but I do workout with my weights and on my Elipse. I like gardening and spending my summers by my pool. I like dancing and watching romantic movies as well as reading books that expand my soul's horizons. I am a Cancer/Leo on the cusp so you get two great signs for the price of one. I am honest and interested in a permanent relationship. I do a lot of communicating especially about feelings. I am very open about how I feel. I also like lots of foreplay that doesn't always have to lead to intercourse but it's great if it does. I am very affectionate and would love to spend the night in front of my fireplace with you cuddled in my arms. I don't play head games.
I am looking for a petite lady of small build that is feminine and caring. She is not afraid of her sexuality and wouldn't be afraid to tease me or flirt with me or be playful. She is compassionate and has a good sense of humour. She is attractive (to me).I am looking for a lady that likes to tease me and likes to cuddle with me and also likes being naughty,playful and saucy with me. You are open with me and not afraid to tell me your feelings or to let me into your soul. I respect you and will cherish you . We are equals and stand before life beside each other hand in hand. I don't want to give you the impression that it is all physical with me because it isn't. I need an intelligent partner... someone who can talk about varied topics.
I am not interested in casual sex nor one night stands. If I am to be with someone then I want to build the foundation of friendship and then if we are both so inclined then we can go on from there. Of course that is not to preclude the possibility that when we meet we have great chemistry and we both know that the relationship will progress quickly. I will deal with you with honesty and respect and I expect the same in return. I apologise for the pics. Except for the bathing suit one I took them myself and I don't seem to have the knack for taking my own picture. I will replace them as soon as I find someone to take another of me.
I am not a person that needs to fill every day with a thousand things to do. I value the quiet times. I don't want to change you only grow with you. I try to eat healthy foods but admit that I do enjoy eating the bad foods too. That is why I am constantly watching my mid section. Extra pizza equals extra ab crunches.
I don't understand why women go to all the trouble of posting their profile at these sites and then they don't post a picture. What are they hiding? Men are visual creatures. That is not to say that they are necessarily shallow but rather that certain looks or features in the face may attract them. Maybe it is your eyes or maybe your smile or the shape of your face. I have posted as many recent pics as I can to make sure that you don't get surprised if we meet. I would appreciate the same. No pictures = no response.
Quick facts.... Movies- I love them old and new but I admit that I do prefer love rather than violence. TV- Being alone I do watch too much and would gladly cut back if with someone. I like shows that teach me things or that make me laugh. Entertainment shows that I like.... All the CSI shows and NCIS... all the Law and Order shows. Off-beat shows like Fringe I still miss Mulder and Scully. Music: I like everything from classical to rock and new age and have it all in my CD/vinyl collections but I have not found a liking of rap nor hip-hop. I have country in my collection but I can't bear to listen to a country and western radio station for some reason. I love to dance and I love foods from all over the world especially Greek, Indian and Italian. Sports- I curled many years ago. I haven't golfed in decades because I wasn't good but I do have a set of clubs somewhere in the basement. I have caught myself watching some golf on TV the last few years so maybe there is interest. The only other sports I watch are the odd Argo game on TV and the Olympics. Books- The DaVinci Code, Soul Stories, The Celestine Prophecies, Seat of the Soul, The Little Prince, The Four Agreements., Dying To Be Me.
My hair turns platinum blond in the summer so it isn't as white as it may appear in the pics. Oh and if you want children I am NOT your man as I had a vasectomy years ago.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Of course the usual meeting over coffee or perhaps I could take you out to brunch. I would also enjoy taking you up to Merrickville for the day and go through the shops. You find out a lot about each other that way and then maybe we could stop for lunch at a pub. I am of course very open to any of your suggestions.
