I surrender. I give up. I've written too many "hello's" without a response, too many morning after's without a view. I respected those that kindly let my advances go with a reply and I'm disillusioned by those that made no response. Those that I sent elongated messages and are still seeking Mr. Right, you'll be perennial searchers, unsure and a commitment phobic. Yes, I was searching for a pleasing look, younger than myself, with personalities that extended beyond Nascar and your latest tattoo. Not everyone kayak's or skydives. There are some that just likes good company, and family, and the warmth of a good companion. My guess is that people are visual, that is, responds to provocative photos. It was true for me and I'm sure true to you. I'm not photogenic, so I'm at a loss, but I more than make up for it with personality, generosity, curiosity. If you still want to be a serial viewer of this and other sites, I wish you good luck, as for me I've searched my last search (unless you caught my eye).
Now for a more positive profile.
It's a daunting task writing about oneself when I never put myself first in everyday life. Deeds, rather than words, are my best asset, but as we all know it's tough to demonstrate without given a chance. I'm selective, often guilty of placing looks before the content as I'm sure it is for you too. Admittedly, I take a poor photo, so I'm at a disadvantage to start with but I'm youthful in appearance and young at heart. Retired early in life created by opportunity, I'm financially secure and live comfortably in Peru. Family orientated as I have two married children that have given me 4 beautiful grandchildren that allows their "Poppy" to spoil them rotten. If that's all there is then I'm a lucky man yet I long for a significant other, one that I can walk hand in hand, converse and travel with. I'm not shy of commitment but it hasn't happened in the seven years since I've moved up here from Long Island. Walking into a restaurant ordering a table for one is not my style, nor is sitting in a theater with the adjoining seat being used to place a coat. I'd like nothing more than to just go out and have some fun. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. I hope you see it the same.
Hmmm....my first date. I guess a quiet dinner for two would be appropiate. Then you can see a little deeper into a person than just through emails.
Lately, messages are being generated (hey there :-) ) trying to illicit responses when if fact it was never my doing. I suspect it's happening system wide. I've had three responses to date that I never initiated. Beware.
