Hi, I’m a 46 year old divorced father of three boys. I have been divorced for seven years now. I have had the best experience raising my son alone. My oldest son is in college at Arizona State and is married to a great girl, my middle son finished his first year of college at Marshall University, and is now in Las Vegas working in the construction field, and my youngest joined the Navy last June. I enjoy the outdoors, riding my motorcycle, spending time with someone special.Being physcial and intimate with someone is one of the greatest thing nature gave us, but quiet dinners and movies are great with the right person as well as going out with that person and letting off some steam at a bar or club watching a good band ( Blues, Country, Rock, Hip-Hop ) it doesn’t matter as long as they are good. I also think that relationships do work with the right person who is willing to work with you on it. There are five things that I would like to find in a relationship.
The five things that I like to believe in are (Well - Intentioned, monogamous, open - ended, responsible, realistic relationship.)
Well - Intentioned, means that you bring honesty, effort, and openness to the relationship, not to intentionally conceal any negative agendas, and that your hopes for the future of the relationship are serious and sincere.
Monogamy, is very important in any committed relationship, it might be a little conservative but it is a traditional value I believe in.
Open - Ended, mean the possibility of continuing the relationship indefinitely. Leaving room for growth and change while protecting the emotional investments of both parties. It also implies the desire to make it work, to look to the future with possibilities.
Responsibility, means responsibility to the relationship, to ones partner, to ones self. Not to promising more than you can emotionally deliver, nor holding back emotion you are capable of giving. To stay sensitive to your partners feelings
Realistic, means having a realistic attitude. To do away with the fantasies and to see and accept your partners faults, weaknesses and imperfection.
These are qualities I think to keep a relationship working even at those times when it would be easier to quit.
Hope that this is not to much information and that it don’t scare to many people off. Just wanted everyone to know where I’m coming from. Thanks P.S. will have photo as soon as I get my photo center back up.
