My independence day came early this year. The divorce is officially
finalized. I am not celebrating that my relationship failed when
she left me and counseling did not work. However, for a
non-contested divorce without children or property disputes, I am
happy that two and half years later, I am finished with the Judge
and my attorneys promising within a month for the last 27 months.
Eternally an optimist, I am still looking for that special person
to share some good times for the next couple decades. I am
frustrated that I have not met more people. I send out messages,
get the occasional reply, and have the rare conversation. I am
literate, considerate and, when appropriate, passionate. I have a
wide range of interests and am a great listener. I can remember the
thrill of a summer romance. Long hot days and steamy nights, ice
cream, a nice cookout or picnic on the beach are just a few of my
memories. I am too young to live on memories alone.
Is anyone interested in exploring the possibilities? I look forward
to hearing from you. I will reply to all messages.

What will we have to talk about if I answer this question. I love
to read, mostly fiction, history and the occasional poetry. I love
watching movies, mostly romantic comedies(this should be under the
most private thing I am willing to admit), comedies and well done
action movies. I love most music but prefer 60's 70's rock and
roll. I am an omnivore but particularly love sushi, Chinese and
well done pizzas.
