Well my 76 year old father has inspired me for like the thousandth time. He has just moved in with his 70 year old girlfriend. Yup, shackin up at 76, Way to go old man! When he reconnected with this lovely woman it was at a reunion, they hadn't seen each other for something like 50 years when they had a brief romance, and when they saw each other they were both struck with the same feelings they had all those years ago.
So here's the part that really warmed my heart, my dad sent me photos of her both now and from back in the 60s when they first met. I told him how beautiful she is now and how stunning she was back then. His reply? "When I look at her now its the girl from the 60s that I see." Now I don't know about you but that sounds pretty flippin good to me. If I am lucky enough to meet someone special I want to be able to look at HER 40 years from now and see the woman I fell in love with. Too much to ask? Nope, I deserve it and I'm on a mission to find it. So here I go.
My name is Jeff.
I have two amazing children, 12 year old daughter and 15 year old son, and God placed his finger in my life when he put them in it. I love kids, probably because I'm one myself, and when I see a loving mother with her children I am filled with respect and, truth be known, desire if it is the one I'm with. I'm just getting into the dating scene after having been divorced for about a year.
I enjoy the outdoors, anything athletic, good music, good conversations, art, you name it as long as it doesn't involve cruelty and I'm game. I'm creative and very passionate by nature and I live life full on.
I'm very spiritual but tend to shy away from religious dogma. I believe every person comes into this world with equal innate value and with equal access to a higher power regardless of their religious disposition.
I love to laugh and can be a bit of a smartass when the mood strikes me which depending on your personality may be often. You'll find me to be loving and attentive but not a pushover. If you like to laugh at occasional clumsiness then you are in for a real treat with me. I have a (clears throat) ...strong personality and I'm comfortable with who I am so I need someone shares those traits.
My ideal partner is perfect in her imperfection, she is loving and warm, kind hearted, a thoughtful and sensual lover in all respects - that is to say in all aspects of the relationship not just in the classic sense. She is curious and vivacious and has a hunger for the simple pleasures in life. She is fun loving and positive. She will hold my interest for a lifetime. True intimacy is a rare thing and there are few things as satisfying as being truly connected to your partner. I know she is out there if I am patient.
I see myself as an attractive guy, fit and lots of good energy. Let's talk and take it from there.
Casual, probably coffee, just talk and see what our mutual reactions are. As far as i am concerned it should be no pressure all the way and in my book there is no wrong answer in terms of where it leads or doesn't lead as long as we are respectful of one another.
We might want to keep our schedule open for the afternoon just in case we want to spend more time together, the park, maybe dinner. Again, no pressure, no wrong answer and no preconceived notions that it is a failed experiment if we don't find romance.
