I believe in trust and honesty, the power and love of family both yours and mine. I'm a gentle soul, enjoy nature and have a belief that there is a place on God's great earth for everyone and everything. Grew up in the country and city life has never displaced the country boy in me.
I'd like to find a younger woman who shares my passion for country life, family, music, new ideas, change and the future. Age is only the barrier that you make it!
"All the good men are either gay or married." I've heard this often said by women. I'm a good man. I'm not gay and I'm not married as my late wife of 22 years passed away almost a year ago. I've cried, I've grieved, I've cried some more and now I'm ready to move on with my life.
From my interests you can see I try and stay occupied, but I'm never too busy for family and friends. Interests occupy the body, relationship occupy the mind. My mind is ready for a relationship. I always try to share my interests with my special someone. When that is difficult I do my hardest to balance my time between my interests and your interests. Recently I had some good news and I shared it with family and friends but the joy wasn't as intense as sharing it with someone special. When someone special has shared my trials and tribulations I want them to be the first to share my joy and happiness. My good news was I received back my higher pay grade at work. With it also comes more responsibilities. Because of the economic slow down of 2001 I lost this position and now I received it back with the improving economy.
All I need is Love... but I'll settle for chocolate" That's the inscription on the mug I'm drinking out of right now. Chocolate is such a fleeting feeling and unfortunately by the time it triggers enough endorphins it also triggers a headache. I think of love often, my first puppy love, my high school steady of two years, love gains and loves lost, an unfulfilled engagement, a loving committed marriage, a rebound romance, they all renew my belief in the power of a great relationship. Yes, I'm looking for love. I'm a man that understands a women puts love first so I try to understand and reciprocate.
I know women bond by talking,men bond by doing activities. I try to talk openly about anything and everything. I saw a plaque in a bar that said, "A rich man talk of ideals. An average man talks about things. A poor man talks about other people." I try and talk about ideal, if that is difficult then I talk about things. I always try to avoid talking about other people. If you can't say something good about someone don't say anything. A good conversation is like looking into someone's eyes but using your ears. Our conversational subjects and words say's a lot about who and what we are. I put every effort into being honest and personable.
To everyone who thinks over 50 is over the hill. Let me tell you different. Age is only what you make of it. I'm healthier, smarter and enjoy life more now than ever. I still have a lot of passion, romance and love to give.
Our first date should include good conversation mixed with a relaxing activity such as dancing, karaoke, strolling Botanica or a museum
