Hi and thanks for looking.
Please note that I am located in the Springfield, Vermont area (much farther south than I used to be).
Being single for some time gives a man the time to get a good look at what's going on all around.
It also leaves enough time to think it through.
There's a choice single folks face and I think it is the one that keeps many of us single.
Do we want a good relationship with a good mate, or do we want alot of fancy stuff ??
Those are very different scenarios.
How strong can any relationship ever be if it starts based only upon material qualifications -
so that if one of the partners suffers a material loss, what is likely to happen there ?
I know what I've been wanting all this time - a good relationship with a good mate.
So I've looked for someone who also wants this so we can be happy together AND stay together.
Not so easy to find.
As a middle-aged man in today's world it is lucky for me that I learned early in life to live on very little, and also to live as well as possible.
Rich ? Fancy job ? New car(s) ? Not yet, and likely not ever.
Sad as that may seem to some - despite such an ordinary life I manage to live without getting any sort of welfare.
And simply making smart choices like not wasting money on things like smoking/drugs/etc. has always helped.
Just so there's no doubt=> I'm 100% single - not married, separated, living-with, etc... I live alone.
Not even a dog or cat is in my life at present, there's just me.
(The horse-person in my photo with me (Tyler) was in my life for over 20 years. He's gone on now to a better place, and of course I'll always miss him.)
Are you that ONE woman reading this who wants a man in her life for his better qualities ??
I'm ready and waiting to share mine if you're ready to share yours.
I close with my real name because I think introductions are important; please introduce yourself as well ?!?
(And I must also add that=>"Hey there :)" is not anything that will get a reply; one-liners with smileys ? No thanks.)
My apologies to smokers, religious folks and anyone else whom I don't reply to;
Usually if I don't reply it is because I am ONLY seeking the company of a NON-SMOKER.
Here's a site that I made, if you'd like to see more of my openly shared thoughts: http://fragileworld.info/
((Hmmmmm....I think they must mean when we meet.....is that really a 'date' ?))
Ideally, when at last we meet - the eyes make contact, the world sort of spins a wee bit, then it just sort of.....gets less important, and we proceed into our own world, much happier for it's actual existence !
