Hi there. Thought I’d update this profile a little… I took a short break from this site because I found I might be trying too hard to find someone. Dating was becoming all consuming if you will. I guess I hadn’t really got used to being alone yet. It’s been about 18 months since my divorce so I think I’ll just try to be a little more patient and relaxed from this point and see what relationships find me.
I own a home in far west Houston and I continue to work for the same company that I have been with for over 20 years. I’m also a reservist in the US Coast Guard, a second career that I will be retiring from this fall; I’ll finally have my weekends back! Both jobs keep me fairly engaged and help keep me fit too. I go to the gym nearly every day after work and I like to try and get my chores done so I can enjoy a more relaxing weekend. I’ve also been keeping myself busy with home improvements and repairs, something I really like to do.
I’m looking for a woman willing to give and receive the full treatment: the romance, the love, and especially the friendship. I miss those butterflies; having someone on your mind. She should know what she wants and can verbalize it. She should be respectful and demand the same of me. I’m sarcastic at times and can be a bit of a goof, but I've always been loyal and someone you can count on.
Let’s find out more about each other and possibly go and hang out too. Cooking, laughing and sharing a great meal together over a nice bottle of wine are the ingredients for a perfect day. What do you like to do?
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Keep it simple. Let's see if we are attracted to each other and can hold a conversation. A light dinner with wine or drinks would be lovely. Coffee or dessert somewhere is nice too. The most important thing is to go!
