As of Nov 2011 I am retired living in a brand new house. The grandkids are just down the street within walking distance. The grandkids do spend a fair amount of time with me and I really enjoy them. Overall my life is good I have everything I could need or reasonably want except that special someone to share life with.
I do like getting out and riding my Harley on a regular basis. At the moment I don't have any hobbies but am quite sure I will soon. I am considering wookworking as that is something I have never done before. Computer repair is another possibility as I do know a little about them and my son-in-law is very knowledgable. Motorcycle repair is another option. I could make quite a list and am open to suggestions.
As for what I am looking for in a relationship. I am looking for long term which of course would include intimacy although definitely not on the first date as that would confuse any deeper feelings which could be developing. I would however expect by the third or fourth date to at least feel the woman had some desire to be intimate. It has been a long time since I have had an intimate relationship and would be open to something short term as well, but only if we both agreed.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
This is something we should decide together. However I would not consider our first meeting a date and it should be somewhere we could talk for thirty minutes to an hour, over lunch or dinner would work great for me. I am open for a lot of things for a first date from going to bricktown to a picnic by the lake. Or me cooking you a candlelight dinner.
