If you could not put up with a man opening doors and pulling out chairs for you, we are not going to get along. You must be willing for me to treat you like a lady. All else in our relationship is up for compromise.
I am a widower but am not carrying baggage. We loved and lived well. Scattered about the USA, I have 4 well adjusted and productive children -all with mates, and 14 grandchildren.
I retired early, sold the house, put some stuff in storage, and set out in the Motorcoach to see the USA and find which part of the country I wanted to settle in. I picked Nortnern Arkansas.
And, here is what I am looking for in a mate: Someone to treat like a lady; open doors for; share travels with; and above all, someone to share and explore this wonderful world with.
And, for a bit more insight, Bobby Hatfield's treatment of Unchained Melody still drives this helpless romantic onward. I know that you are out there:
Oh my love, my darling
I've hungered for your touch
A long lonely time,
And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much,
I need your love,
I need your love
God speed your love to me.
