As I look through profiles, it's interesting how many women ask for the same simple things: honesty, caring, thoughtful, trustworthy, confident, fun-loving, affectionate, cuddling. I read so many complaints about men being "shallow" or just wanting one thing. I have a good heart, I will truly be interested in all you do and care about you. I still have a sharp mind and am interested in so many things, from the deepest secrets of the universe to the silliest TV shows. Laughter is so important, and my sense of humor is quirky and original.
What is the meaning of life? Many great thinkers have written many great books on this. My answer is, the meaning of life is...... to live! We have so much beauty all around us. There is still so much of the world I want to see, and I want that special companion to enjoy it with me.
I may seem shy and quiet in the beginning, but you will soon see there's no shortage of personality! Conversation will be easy and fun, and eye contact a must. I'm a good listener, and like a sponge, I absorb the information and love it. Cuddling, massage, and affection come naturally. Although I will treat you like a princess, it's important that we be equals and respect each other, and my thoughts, wishes, and feelings must be equally important to you, as well. I wish I had accomplished more in life, but I am still confident and feel good about who I am. I am a gentleman, always polite and professional. My aunt remarried at age 66, and 10 years later, she and her husband were still inseparable "newlyweds," wanting to be with each other more than anyone else, and that's how I want my life to be!
My favorite activity for a first date is to first meet in a familiar setting like a coffee shop, talk for a while, then go for a long walk outdoors. This makes it easy to talk. As we relax and feel comfortable, it's surprising how easy and natural it is to start holding hands.
I'm a good-hearted, easy-going, thinking 55-year old single male. I grew up in Northern California. I love being outdoors, going on hikes and walks, and enjoying nature. I love the rain. I'm very loving and affectionate, enjoy quiet evenings at homes, movies, good conversation. I like to talk and think about almost anything, from science to history to music.
