I have two grown stepchildren who do not love with me.
I'm looking for…
I'm looking for the same thing most folks want, including someone who is sensitive, honest, fair, loyal, has integrity, can laugh at himself and me (all while being good natured), is forgiving, loves life, is optimistic, and likes BBC.
My perfect first date
As I said, I'm big on compromise, so I'm usually open for suggestions. Whatever we mutually agree on is just fine, be it meeting for coffee or lunch, dinner, taking a walk, or anything else. Come walk through the leaves with me.
My ideal relationship
Nothing in this world is ideal. It's called life and living. It's all what you want and how much you want to work for it. I think respecting and understanding another person's perspective is very important even if you don't agree with it. The ideal part comes when you still like and love the other person in the face of conflict.
My past relationships
I've learned to always put myself in the other person's shoes and then get back into my own. Also, always consider another way of doing something. Your (my) way may not be the only way!
