I am a smart (most of the time),passionate(all of the time), funny (i'm always laughing at myself), honest, loyal (to a fault),romantic, a little old fashioned gentleman who is looking for a confident woman who likes to be treated like a lady. I value honesty, loyalty and friendship above anything else. Trust is the foundation for any enduring relationship. I am a widower that lost my wife 5 years ago. I have finally just now started dating again, I didn't think that it would have been fair to try and be with someone until I could heal my shattered heart which took a long time. I finally feel like I am ready to find a new love and not a replacement. I have recently returned to school and am now looking to find a new career that I have a strong passion for. I spent the first part of my life doing the necessary things I had to do to support my family which I happily did. But now my circumstances have changed and I plan on making the most of this opportunity. I am a hopeless romantic but I don't think that defines me as a man. I am looking for someone to share the rest of my life with. Not just a companion but an equal partner that cherishes the little things in life. Someone who, when they just accidentally brush up against me, gives me goose bumps and makes the hair on my arms stand up. My kids are both grown and on their own.
I am a spiritual man, right now my relationship with God is a little strained, but we're working on it.
As far as kids go, I love them mine are actually my step kids but I really hate to refer to them as anything but just my kids. I miss the craziness that comes with having kids in school, the nonstop running , the sports, choir concerts, last minute projects for science class, and school dances. I don't think any man should ever ask a mother to put him in front of her children. I don't think I could be with someone that would put their man before their children. Blood is thicker than water. Of course, as the kids get older and become more independent parents can begin putting themselves as a higher priority.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I don't really know. Maybe coffee , lunch at the zoo, beer at a ball game, weekend in savannah, Five nights in Vegas, or maybe a Mediterranean cruise.
