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 apologise 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 My picture is fairly recent and I believe that using old outdated pictures is a form of deception to lure.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. 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.
