Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I don't see why online dating shouldn't be a viable way to meet
I am an old-school gentleman, which seems to be an anachronism
My friends describe me as patient, unflappable and
I'm emotionally and financially stable and in great health.
I am also characterized as naive...because in spite of
demonstrations to the contrary, I treat people as honest and
trustworthy until they prove otherwise
Respect and honesty are the foundations of any relationship, and
they must be firmly in place for a relationship to grow. I can't
imagine anyone disagreeing with this, but I know that words are
cheap and profiles are full of lofty platitudes. I would like the
opportunity to prove these words, starting with a face-to-face
conversation over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine.
If a casual, candid and frank conversation appeals to you, and the
rest of my profile is acceptable, please let me know.
