IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ FIRST: I’ve made small content changes to my profile, but was not allowed to make a change to my age??? I altered my true age due to bad advice from a friend when I first wrote my profile (vanity or the fear of being ‘type cast’ - some people are old at 35 while others continue to think, act, and feel young regardless of their age) … thinking (OK, so I didn’t know what I was thinking) I would eventually change this. I am now 69**woops now 70, just had a birthday but posted new, and current photos, since I stopped and restarted using bottle help to keep my hair looking light brown ... now mostly gray. I've been told that I haven’t changed very much (that's why our friends are our friends). I just got a new digital camera, still in the box. The last 4 were taken with my phone ... I hate them. lol. Anyone who has spoken to me knows I never kept my age a secret. I hope you will look past my lapse in good judgment.
I'm a mixture of streetwise and grounded, educated professional (retired), who stays busy (now not so busy) Monday-Friday, and plays just as hard the rest of the time. My personality goes from Mr. (retired) business Man to Mr. let's go out and party without the aid of a phone booth to change clothes. I'm in good shape for my age (no beer belly, slim), and have short light brown hair (correction, now mostly gray ... read above important note) and hazel eyes. I exercise semi-regularly, but not a fanatic about it … I don’t live in a gym, I live in the real world. I don’t take myself too seriously, but know when it’s time to be serious. There is always room for growth, spiritually and intellectually. Nobody's perfect, but for now, I'm happy with me just the way I am. Although I wouldn't mind being a couple of inches taller (5’8”) since many women put soooo much importance on this superficial issue. Consider whether you want to look into your companion’s eyes or up his nose. I have a keen sense of humor and enjoy 'one on one' communication. I'm responsive and eager to please. I am a non-smoker, but have no problem with women who smoke. I am unscarred, (OK maybe a few scars), from past relationships (divorced 18 years) and travel light (no baggage just carry on, lol). I have a high energy level and enjoy almost everything life has to offer at least once, (when your dead your dead). I also know how to 'kick back', relax and enjoy quiet intimate times. Please be serious, I am looking for a relationship not just an E-mail buddy. Contact Me. ***********PS:*********** Anyone not living in the continental U.S. would be wasting her time to write to me, as I mentioned, I am not looking for an E-mail buddy, and I am certainly not looking for a ‘mail-order bride’. lol
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
The where or what doesn't Matter - the who does. :) What I'm looking for... I’m seeking sparks, wit, humor, and chemistry. An attractive person (inside and out), who is still open and genuinely fun to be around. No negativity thank you very much. The ability to communicate and express your self openly is a quality I put above physical appearance. I am not so shallow that things like body type, weight or height influence my decision. A warm personality and a genuine smile is a big plus. A great kisser would be great (not on the first date). I would like to meet someone who is living in the present and seeking quality time with someone who has similar interests, and looking to make a difference in their life. Someone, who wants to be put first, and willing to do likewise. Romantic, and self-assured, and knows what she wants from life. Someone like me!!! lol. A little romance is probably too much to hope for...but what do I know? Anyone curious? If you are, e-mail me. This is a cumbersome way to communicate...don't you think???? Contact me.
