I'm not sure if anyone actually reads these profiles or do they just check out the pictures to see if there's any chemistry? In the interest of full disclosure, I've been married three times, divorced twice and widowed once, two adult sons from my first marriage, but no other kids. I love my family, but they're all a long way away. Although born in the UK, I am now a US Citizen (dual in fact).
As you can see, I'm not very good at relationships, but I haven't quite given up yet, as I believe I have a lot of love to give the right person (just ask my dog). I'm a bit slow in coming forward, but will be more enthusiastic if I'm comfortable with the chemistry. It's not lack of interest, it's just caution. You're never too old to get hurt. A lady should always be treated like a lady. I was brought up to show respect and I believe I do that.
To be honest, being a steady reliable guy, I would have thought that means something. All I ask really is for you to be presentable and not too far away. Since I commute at least 80 miles daily, I tend to shy away from doing the same in a relationship, which is why I'd prefer to keep it within 25 miles if possible. There will always be exceptions of course. I'm very neat (domesticated) and I try to dress well, even if it's in jeans or shorts. I'm told my smile is my best feature. I get on well with most people and am considered friendly and outgoing, as well as being very affectionate. I'm capable of letting my hair down, but you'd need to use your imagination for that (see photo). I can listen as well as talk and know how to put the seat back down. I'm also spontaneous, although that hasn't been tested for a while. I like drives to nowhere and all kinds of music except rap (is that music?). I enjoy dancing and being in the outdoors, especially when the sun is out when I can sit in the yard and read, although I can happily sit and watch a good sitcom on tv. Cuddling on the sofa with a glass of wine and watching a good comedy has to be one of my favorite things, except when the sun is shining of course. I purchased a set of golf clubs last summer but I don't get much opportunity to play as I don't have a partner, or a handicap. Could that be you (the partner not the handicap)? If you have an interest that I haven't listed, don't assume I'm not. I may have just not tried it yet. Also, I don't expect you to necessarily join in my interests. Each to our own.
Remember: Don't judge a man until you've walked a mile in his shoes. By then, you are a mile away and you have his shoes.

I hope you have a photo and please try to say more than just "hi".
Come on, make my day.
