OK - it's time to write our own romance true-life story.
You're out there. I'm here. We know what we want - a trusting friendship so we can share our fun, adventures, fantasies, joys, sorrows, and intimacies.
There are plenty of people out there - as they say, fish. But much as we like them and would enjoy their company, there is something, je ne sais quoi, missing.
We've been single and wanting to fill that hollow in our life. But we won't settle for "next is best". I believe that a good relationship belongs to both and both are responsible to be there for the other. I believe that sharing love and kindness is its own reward, but there are more benefits when that is reciprocal. It sounds easy, but it isn't if it ain't the right person - one who can understand, receive, and offer love. My "hamburger helper" for a longing heart is to reach out to others by giving in community or social activities. That has its own rewards, but its simply not the same thing and sometimes backfires.
Outdoorsman, writer, lecturer, tour guide, comfortable in jeans, sportswear, tux. Easy to get along with, lots of good friends - but not the "right" partner. I prefer to take a little longer to get there and would travel the back road to small towns rather than the interstate to LA; or a take-out picnic in a county park by the river rather than a sit-down multi-course dinner in a fancy restaurant.
I appreciate learning about things that I don't know much about or understand (opera, foreign cultures, food) and would enjoy sharing those that I do - but I have a long way to go with opera : )
So - come join me as we photograph warblers on High Island, Texas or help pull lobster traps off Nova Scotia, or help set up an art show for an up and coming artist in St. Louis.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
How about a snack date or walk in a public park or museum.
