Man in early seventies seeks kind, companionable woman for getting to know one another in a friendly, respectful way. I’m pretty companionable myself, I think, blessed as I am with looks and physique which belie my age as well as a good number of blue-chip qualities, not the least of which is my remarkable humility! lol But seriously, from the get-go the watchwords for the kind of relationship I’d like, would be decency, goodwill, and lightheartedness. We’d see fairly quickly if this might lead to a long-term relationship and so I’m looking forward to meeting you soon. I hope we’ll both enjoy getting to know one another; in fact, I’m sure we will.
A first date would be all about spontaneity and lightheartedness. Nothing heedless or anything like that, just not having our guard up to begin with: two people coming together for the sheer fun and pleasure of getting to know someone new and recognizing in them how we are both similar while also different -- but mostly similar! A sense of resonance will tell us everything we want to know about each other, and a drink or two, maybe also a stroll in a congenial setting, will confirm things. When it's over, we'd already be looking forward to our next encounter.
