Are we both looking for the same thing? Natural, honest friendship and affection, and then Love? I'm a simple man with simple tastes, but affection takes the lead. Simple hugs and kisses are highly underrated and so wonderful. Simple touches, smiles, holding hands......Romance (and YES, hopefully, love) will thrive when we enjoy each other's company, and enjoy this kind of spontaneous affection. Hopefully, there will be that yearning for our relationship to last forever. A good sense of humour and conversation is important, too.
Yes, your heart will tell you when you're ready for the commitment. Your soul will warm to constant affection and shared dreams. First the spark, then the fire. Are we both ready to keep the fire going? Raise a glass of wine with me, share a kiss, feel the romance, build our dreams. Positive feelings are best, are they not? No need to worry. We both need a life of love. Build it with trust and affection and love.
A simple lunch meeting, or just a coffee shop visit, our choice to make. And if you're comfortable, a walk on the Lake Ramsey boardwalk :-)).
