I am a romantic and enjoy the romance in a relationship and never take it for granted. Anyone who has been searching for someone to spend the rest of their life knows that you should never take it for granted, the right person just does not cross your path that often. I want someone who knows what being IN love is.
I had a wonderful 22 year marriage but my "happily ever after" was interrupted 6 years ago by her passing. I believe I can find that feeling with someone again.
I am in this for a long term relationship not hit or miss dating or casual dating. I'm also not looking for one night stands.
I would like to meet someone to build a relationship on trust, respect and communication. Once those are in place and we have each other as friends hopefully the rest will fall into place.
I would enjoy it if you would share some of your hobbies or interests such as the theater, etc. There are many things I've never taken the time to experience that I would enjoy and I think it's time to start. I enjoy new experiences and old alike. I enjoy flea markets, wine tasting, catching a movie or a concert, live sports, a nice place to eat. I enjoy being part of a couple or part of a group. I enjoy a good steak, a great salad and sushi. I enjoy photography and nature is my favorite subject for my camera. I observe things such as moss on a tree stump or a Key West sunset, a spider web between tree limbs, insects,rain drops on a leaf, the list goes on! Not all the pics turn out, but what's important is I lived the experience. I would really like to live these things with you.
I'm an affectionate man and am at my best around a woman that enjoys receiving affection and can also show affection herself. I think a guy should know what gives his girl goosebumps. If you take the time to learn this many other things in the relationship will fall into place. Just my opinion.
I enjoy the company of the right woman more than most anything else. There's a certain contentment that comes from the feeling of just knowing you are near but not necessarily in the same room. I would like to meet someone that knows the difference of loving someone and being IN love with someone. I want someone I can't wait to get home to and wrap my arms around her. I think a guy should always how to give his girl 'goosebumps' and I'm not talking about sex. If you know that, well, you're a guy that is on the road to a good relationship.
Oh, one more thing, dancing in the kitchen is mandatory. Don't get me wrong....I can't dance a lick...just sayin.
