My self-summary
CANADA is where I live. I'm single; meaning, not married and not attached. My screen name "AlsatianMan" simply means I'm a "Man" with a passion for the "Alsatian" (German Shepherd) dog breed.

Let's cut to the chase. Never know what might develop from here. Might find and meet a good prospective companionship friend, a good lover, a good partner to share life's adventure. I'm here for a good time, not a long time. That cuts to the chase but there's more if you're interested, especially "the most private thing I'm willing to admit".
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I'm actually living in Ancaster which is just at the west end of Hamilton and now part of Hamilton. From where I live, I'm going to keep my driving distance fairly local for a little while and see how it goes.

Nothing ventured is nothing gained, right? So I'm venturing out. Thanks for taking the time to read and I apologize for making this a long read. I'm certainly not here to make enemies, friends yes, and one exclusive match would be nice.

In on-line dating sites, it all begins with a picture. It’s the first thing we see and if it piques our interest, we click on it to see what's behind it. My picture is fairly recent and I believe that using old outdated pictures is a form of deception to lure. I'm not naive and I realize this is the Internet where anything can be displayed and written. I welcome the reality of standing right next to you face to face.

I’m retired after a rewarding and interesting 31 year career working in an engineering and manufacturing company. Never married with no kids but I like kids. I have a German Shepherd dog (DOB May 2010) and so I have some routine in my lifestyle. I’m a non-smoker, a social drinker but rarely, and I don’t do drugs. I’m in relative good health and not on any meds.

I'm an ex-Montrealer (Go Habs Go). Old in age but young in spirit, I consider myself a good humoured, decent, good natured, kind, romantic, honest, one woman guy who will appreciate and respect a good woman. I'd like to become involved with a happy, relatively healthy in mind and body, compatible woman.

Friends first okay. What I'm looking for is just one sincere woman to develop a friendship with and see if it evolves into a relationship of mutual compatibility that makes us both feel good together. Easy on the eyes is a good start. When we like what we see, it's a good start to wanting to learn more. It might sound very shallow to say physical attraction plays a big role but I believe it's true. It does for me. Like what you see and hopefully later, like what you didn't see. Just saying.

I'm preferential to a non-smoker or a "trying-to-quit" smoker. I still enjoy intimacy with a woman who enjoys intimacy, so pass me by if you don't. I'm not the clingy or controlling type and not looking to complicate your lifestyle or be intrusive to your independence. Not expecting to move in with each other because I like my current situation but I'll leave that option open to explore with you should we ever reach that point in time.

Life is short so enjoy the first day of the rest of your life. Don't sweat the small stuff and keep it simple.
What I’m doing with my life
I live alone enjoying my retirement and comfortable, stress free lifestyle. I'm debt free and not looking to sponge off you. Until I win the lottery jackpot, I'm unable to give you a free ride and so my expectation is that you already are or you are on your way to financial independence. I'm financially secure to continue living within my means but not wealthy enough to afford the luxury of travel to far off exotic places. I could see myself in an RV though travelling across Canada.

I enjoy being outside going for long walks with my German Shepherd (Alsatian) no matter what the weather is doing. I am currently doing some home improvements at my place. I'm going to downsize when it's all completed. I'd love to live in a year-round cozy, comfortable cottage near a lake somewhere.

Maintaining my good health is important to me so I can continue to enjoy my independence and lifestyle.
I’m really good at
I consider myself to be a pretty good handyman doing stuff like fixing things and doing home improvement stuff like drywall, plumbing, electrical, painting . . . using power tools.

I'm good at doing yard work except I'm not into gardening yet. Also good at using duct tape, the handyman's secret weapon . . . "if the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy". Who said that?

Although I haven't done it in awhile, I'm also good at cooking up a yummy, tasty chicken stir fry over a bed of brown rice. Do you like it spicy hot?
The first things people usually notice about me
I look younger than my age, I'm tall, have blue eyes and my hair is usually cut very short. I'm overweight but not obese. I'm people friendly and easy to have conversation with.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Do it yourself home improvement books.

Action movies, comedies, mysteries, suspense, drama. Movies with good plots.

I like watching the old black and white movies from the 30s and 40s (TCM channel) cuz I like checking out the fashion styles, cars and architecture of that era. I enjoy watching live sports, documentaries, and news on TV. I like the humour of George Carlin and Jeff Dunham.

Native American, Aboriginal culture interests me very much. Watch the movie entitled "We Are Children" to see a glimpse into the horrors of those terrible church-run and government-sponsored residential schools system in Canada. It should be a mandatory watch in all Canadian high schools. First Nations, Metis and Inuit cultures and traditions should be taught by their Elders in all our schools to remedy the ignorance that's out there. Much can be learned and should be learned by school kids of all ages. After all, they were here before Europeans and other immigrants arrived.

My music preference is good old '50s, '60s, '70s rock'n'roll like the Rolling Stones, CCR, Jimi Hendrix, Rush, Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan and many others. Recently I became interested in listening to Leonard Cohen and his interesting story telling in song lyrics. I often listen to iTUNES "Best of Oldies Sky FM" and sing along but my dog doesn't appreciate my karaoke at all.
The six things I could never do without
My good health
My family and friends
My German Shepherd dog
My keys
My power tools
My lawn mower
My bank card (oops, that's 7)
. . . . and there's a whole bunch more
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I don't do today, I can do tomorrow or the next day. Because I can.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home watching a good movie or sports on TV unless I'm out on a date with you maybe watching a movie and eating popcorn after a nice dinner or, maybe just you and me making noise throwing a ball along a long flat floor to knock down obstacles in the way at the other end or using a stick to push a ball into a hole at the end of a table. LOL
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Aside from the "what you see is what you get", there is something you need to know that could make you hesitant to make contact and that's quite alright and understandable. I'm not here to waste your time and I'd rather be upfront and honest with you from the get-go. I’m hearing impaired and wear a hearing aid but that doesn't stop me from listening to what you say. I have tinnitus which is a 24/7 ringing noise in my ears but that doesn't stop me from having conversation with you. Google "Meniere's" to learn more. I have occasional chronic pain in my foot as a result of an accidental fall many years ago but that doesn't stop me from taking walks with you. I'm overweight but not obese and that doesn't stop me from participating in activities with you. Not perfect but perfect for somebody.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 40–70
  • Near me
  • For new friends
You should message me if
Something piques your curiousity, interest or just to say hello and go from there. It's not a matter of "should" but rather a choice of "could". Thanks for reading. Take care, good luck and stay safe.
