Love doesn't sit there like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; remade all the time, made new.

My life plan, God willing, is to live to be 99 and then take a flying leap into my casket just as they slam the lid shut. I have traveled far and wide, had many wonderful experiences, and made countless friends . I want to share new adventures with someone. Places I would love to see or see again include, England, Thialand, Vietnam, Berlin Germany and another trip to Alaska. I also have a love for ocean cruises. There are still a few Hawaiian Islands I haven't yet visited.
I like to laugh and to make others laugh. Who doesn't? People who know me, my daughters in particular, will tell you that my heart is big and my heart is true. I believe strongly in fidelity. I'm loyal to a fault. Does that make me a dog!?
My values are all old school. I believe a man should open a door for a lady. I am spiritual and thank God for his blessings. While not an avid churchgoer, I do pray every day. When times are tough, my favorite Bible verse is from Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Ronald Reagan was once quoted; I'm paraphrasing here, “I miss Nancy the moment she leaves the room". That is the kind of relationship I long for. I'm a sappy romantic who loves holding hands, kissing, snuggling on the couch or in front of the fireplace. I enjoy fine dining but am just as happy getting a Subway sandwich, pizza or order out and watch a movie at home. Spending the evening at the FOX or the Punchline with a nice dinner is always fun. I admit I have a weakness for The Varsity but must limit my visits to once or twice a year.
Of all the things I miss,what I miss the most is being with that special someone at the end of the work day. Weekend getaways, fixing a meal together, sharing the days events, poping the cork on a bottle of wine. In short, I miss having a close connection with someone I am devoted to. A home needs two hearts to be complete. My home is large but also empty. It needs to be filled with love. Where are you???
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I just want to have a nice dinner in a fine restaurant, share a bottle of wine and have the kind of conversation that you wish would never end. Not asking for too much, am I?
