I love the outdoors, Gardening, Nature,Fishing, and cooking. I am a single Dad who has raised 4 disabled children alone, well travelled, and content with who I am, although there is always room for improvement. Surely there is one Woman who doesn't play games, has a good set of values, and would appreciate a man who is a bit old fashioned, loves to cook, can repair almost anything in a home, has a passion for gardening and nature. I enjoy most types of music as long as it is NOT hip hop, rap or whatever you call the "music" nowadays. I am comfortable in jeans, but I do clean up fairly well. I love children and pets.........they neither lie, nor will they break your heart. Take a chance if you think there is a possibility of connecting, should it not happen the worst that may come of it is we will be friends.
The "ideal" woman will first and foremost be my Best Friend, then my Lover, confidant and companion. I want you at my side, not behind, nor in front, we are different yet together we are whole. I am someone who pays attention, listens, and able to communicate. There is nothing I wouldn't try with you, if you seek adventure, fun, I will be happy to join you, however if you are content being domestic and creating your own little World at home then I have no objections. What we both must be able to do is compromise a little and then grow together. Will you take my hand and "walk through the Golden Years" with me?
First "date" is different for everyone and of course this is Iowa, we must adjust to the weather. I won't take you on a picnic in a snow storm, ice fishing in August. I prefer something that allows us to be able to converse and actually hear each other.....movies are out, as are concerts or plays.....they are something to enjoy as a couple not as strangers meeting for the first time. Let's make it public or somewhere you are comfortable and feel safe.
