The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a widower. My wife passed in 2003. Together 10 years. We did not have kids.
Anything else you'll have to ask me :)
You should message me if
You like someone that has friends/travels in different race/class/sexual orientation/generational/ethnic/religious circles and can be themselves throughout.
You want to meet a guy who has done a bit, is very active, is NOT boring, is athletic, is not so judgmental when it comes to others, and likes fun/belly laughing!
Finally, I don't have kids and not sure that will happen for me in this life. I am 'Uncle David' to many. Your kids are welcome (looking forward to meeting them, LONG after we know about us)
