I was married for 22 yrs and have been divorced now for 11+ yrs. Have been single parent and decided not to date until youngest was raised. He is now off to, and almost done with college and I'm ready to find a special lady. I am raising my now 10 yr old grandson. I also have a 1 yr old, a 6 yr old and a 7 yr old granddaughters and also a 1 yr old grandson! I am very close with my family.
I believe that without honesty and trust you have nothing. And without honest, open communication you can't have any kind of meaningful relationship. Chemistry/attraction...that special connection is important. I don't want to date, just to date. Looking for a best friend and lover. I'm sure that's what most of us seek. I'm honest and sincere and expect the same in return. Family is very important. My special lady must accept my family as her own...as I will hers.
I often hear ladies asking, "Where are all the good guys?" Well there's one right here looking for a terrific lady!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Initially meeting would be best in a place where we can talk and get acquainted. Coffee shop, park, zoo, dinner..whatever we decide. If all goes well we can do whatever we decide sounds like fun.
