I’ve been on Plenty of Fish for many years now and have met some really nice women. However, since I’m still on here, obviously things have not totally worked out. Most of us put a good deal of time into writing an appealing profile in the hopes that someone out there will find it and relate to what we have to say. Even still….in my case…here I sit, still searching.
Recently, I decided to do some soul searching to honestly assess my feelings and needs at this phase of my life. At a young 66 with many wonderful relationships and experiences behind me, I find that I’m enjoying life quite a bit as things are. However, there is always a desire to spend time with an interesting woman whom I find attractive in looks, intellect and spirit. However, I’m learning that I’m not really interested in making major changes to my life as it is today. So, I’ve decided to re-write my profile and cast my fate to the wind.
Please do not misinterpret what I say here to mean that I’m looking for a cheesy, one night stand….I am NOT!! I’m a good man and a great friend as my large group of friends would attest. I would simply love to meet a woman who is feeling the same way in her life, in that it's comfortable, fulfilling…but lacking something that we could, if needed, live without…but would rather share bits and pieces of from time to time. That being said…I would love to meet someone who would enjoy dinner occasionally, a movie now and then, a weekend getaway and yes…even intimacy if and when it’s right for both parties…..yet not feel that they have to be in a “traditionally, committed relationship”. I'm not looking for "many" relationships...just one. If I were to find a woman who feels the same in her life and we mesh on all of the important ways I mentioned, I would have no need to be with anyone other than her.....just, on our own terms. Life is complicated enough without creating more complications at this point of our lives. We’ve worked very hard to get here and should be able to relax and enjoy the last quarter of our lives.
Please do not take offense to anything I’ve written here as I’ve meant none. Also, please don’t tell me that there are other sites that I should be on.....because they’re not for me. If you are not able to relate to what I’ve written here…no problem…that’s what makes this world so amazing…we all get to have our own opinions!! Simply pass me by and know that I wish you the best. If, however, you do find this interesting…I would enjoy hearing from you.
One final note...I'm a firm believer that when someone takes the time to contact me, they deserve a response from me even if it's to say Thanks...but no thanks! I'm amazed at how many women on this site can't be bothered to simply do that. I find that incredibly rude and very offensive. Speaking for myself here...if someone responds to me that they are not interested...there are no hard feelings and they will never hear from me again other than to receive a thank you for responding. For those who have not responded...please try to keep in mind that the men contacting you are Real and have feelings too. A no response is comparable to me walking up to someone in a public place, greeting them with a simple hello....and having them turn their back on me and walk away. I realize that I'm not everyone's cup of tea...nor is everyone mine. A simple no thanks, is very much appreciated as opposed to silence!!! Okay...my rant is done...LOL
