I have been widowed for over 7 years. I have 2 kids, twins, a boy and a girl. They both have graduated and my daughter has had her first child, a 2 year old boy, so now I am a grandpa. I have found that the smaller things in life are generally more important than the larger things. I have a great sense of humor, like a good joke, and every now and then a great practical joke doesn't hurt. I have over 35 years in working for the government and own my home and my truck. As you can see, I don't need some one to take care of me. I need someone who wants a long term relationship that takes two to make it work. I don’t do drugs and I will have an occasional beer if I don’t have to drive. I am honest to a fault and I treat a lady as a lady should be treated, with all of the respect that she deserves, opening doors, helping putting on and taking off her coat, pulling her chair out etc. I was raised with old fashion values which I still have and don’t plan on changing them. I’m not looking for a one night hook up, or being a sugar daddy to someone. I truly believe that you have to have chemistry, trust, communication and commitment between two people before any really good relationship starts otherwise it most likely will fail. If you got any questions please ask me, I will answer any and all of them. Good luck in your search.
