The easy self-summary would be to say that I am not a rich man looking for a wealthy woman to take care of me but rather a meek man looking for a woman who seeks the simple old fashioned pleasures of loving another person for whom they are, not what they want them to be. That being said, having been raised in New York/New Jersey, I feel I have a very outgoing personality, am personable and enjoy good conversations. Having become older, I have put the bar scene far behind me and now seek the companionship and love of a woman who wishes to share those joys we either never knew or weren't given the opportunity to experience in our past relationships. Someone who's outlook carries no baggage but has used the negativity of the past as a learned experience and now uses it as a positive re-enforcement to better their present and future in a relationship. I do not like arguments, going to bed mad and have no room for the word hate in my vocabulary. Above all, I want to find someone who can communicate and be honest. Someone to hold, laugh with, cry with and be with in good times and bad. I find my love of the ocean and being near it not only brings peace of mind but is often one of the most romantic places I know. Perhaps I get that from being retired navy.
I "Do Not" reply to Flirt Options so if you are interested please drop me a note and tell me your interests....I will respond.
A first date must be near the water, preferably the ocean....it is the one place I find not only romantic but a place where you can express your feelings and thoughts openly and freely. If you want to meet send me a message telling me so. It is frustrating when someone says they want to meet than puts age criteria in their profile not allowing you to message them.
