I've been lucky to have done a lot of traveling, both foreign and domestic. And there is a lot more to see. I'm lucky that I've accomplished a lot of life goals that were only dreams when I was a kid. Did all the money making yuppie stuff, but the high points were being an archaeologist and publishing a book. I feel that I am a very good and honest person, with morals, and values. If I'm involved with someone, I am absolutely loyal. I'm not getting involved with any one if we aren't at least on the verge of becoming best friends. I'm looking at this for life, not tonight. I'm in no hurry any more; I just want it to be right. I ONLY want my best friend.
I expect, and will always give, mutual tolerance and understanding on our individual interests. I don't want a clone. There are interests I have that you most likely may not be interested in, and vice versa.
The key is finding that Your thing, My thing, OUR thing. I hope we will find a LOT of mutual interests. Compromise is everything. It isn't just me, it isn't just you; it's US.
I believe in compromise, NEVER arguing.
My arm around your shoulder will always be there. You're my girl, I'll protect, listen to you, and care for you any way I can. But I'm not Macho Man.
I do ask that you be slim to average build.
Little kids and animals seem to like me, and I'm not sure why, as I don't have any training in either. I DO like to teach little kids about the sciences, especially astronomy.
And finally, perhaps I'm a touch old fashioned, but I believe a lady should be treated like a lady. If you don't like the door being opened for you, then get over it. I'm going to open it for you any way.
I'll say right up front, I'm retired due to Multiple Sclerosis (MS). And one of the most difficult things I have ever done is to stop driving. Although I walk and get around, I knew my reflexes didn't make me safe at highway or town speeds any more.
I know this is a huge turn off to women; I'm not sure I can blame you. But it is what it is, I can't change it, but I can sure as hell work around it. I'm not dead, comatose, contagious, or in a wheel chair, but I do realize my restrictions. Within reason, it's not as bad as it sounds. You understand that sometimes things happen that you can't control. Still, I keep a positive attitude, and remain a very honest man, who still has something to offer. There is still a lot of the world I want to explore. And two is a lot more fulfilling than one.
Where we get over the awkward meeting stage quickly, and find that we like to talk with each other! The place or setting is not important to me, just some where that you feel comfortable. And it's probably going to be on your computer monitor.
