Some women ask, "What do you like in a woman?" I will leave the obvious joke out. The first quality is HONESTY. I want to know that I can rely on my woman to be truthful with me. While I was married for a long time, that didn't exist. HUMOR; I am looking to the one who has an imagination like mine, and can parallel me and my humor. I want a totally LOYAL woman. I want a woman who APPRECIATES our home, and enjoys decorating. Yes, I do want a woman who is at least SPIRITUAL. I look forward to the hand holding, the hugs, the kisses, the cuddling. I would like her to be comfortable and confident in herself sexually. Your question is, "What do I mean about comfortable?" We will just have to talk about that. The end story is that I want a woman who SINCERELY loves ME! My question is, "Does such a woman actually exist?"
Hmmm, after re-reading that, I believe that I am looking for another Leo! I would think that you would expect the same from me. I deliver!
Having fun and making people laugh is a priority. If you aren't smiling, you are going to be! I do enjoy being relaxed and laid back. I enjoy going to dinner and movies. I like to read, but do not get as much time as I want to do so. I like watching TV for about 5 hours a week...only the favorites below.
I love children, but I do not wish to father any more. I wouldn't reject it if it happened because I love babies, but not fair to the child. If you have children, I would be okay with them, but they would have to be okay about me. Usually, teenagers seem to think that I am "cool". Interesting, but I always got along with the younger in the crowd. I think that they recognize the kid in me. That's just me!
I would love to walk around the neighborhood, or better yet, down a country road holding hands, or arms around the waist. I have walked in the rain because I got caught in it. No big deal; and have I got a story about sudden rain! I like thunderstorms! I watch them closely, though. That's a good time to cuddle, or other "recreational" activities. I don't drink much anymore, but I love the way a couple of glasses of wine makes your body feel warm, relaxed and tingling.
I like dogs; short hair rather than long. I do not have a dog at this time. I have had thoughts of getting a Golden Lab. Now, I like cats, but I am much more allergic to them, and I can not be around them very long.
I have been around aviation all of my life. I retired from a major airline as a supervisor. I hold a flight instructors certificate in general aviation (small aircraft and gliders), although I no longer exercise it. And, NO, I do not jump out of a perfectly good airplane! I have taught as adjunct faculty at a local community college. Can you tell that I like talking to people, helping and motivating them to be a better them, and have enjoyable conversations?
When I feel strongly about something, it is pretty hard to shake me. Smoking would be one of those somethings. I strongly prefer that you do not smoke. Yes, I know that there are some nice and very attractive women out there who smoke.
Also, don't be shy to message me. What good would that do? It is not like you would be calling me, yet! :-)
Here are some things that most people wouldn't put up:
-At age 62, I feel very good.
-The doctor's say that I should weigh 180, so I am 50 pounds overweight.
-I am hypertensive, controlled with meds.
-I was diagnosed Type II Diabetes, NON-insulin. Controlled with meds and diet. However, the diet is no biggy.
-I am myopic (near sighted for those in Rio Linda!)
-I have tinnitus (ringing in the ears.)
-I have sleep apnea, controlled with a CPAP.
-My hair is thinning. Not as much covering the front as you can see in my pictures.
-I like coming home, but I like getting out. I like going to a gun range, but that isn't going to happen much for a few months.
-I don't swim because I swim like a rock.
-I will water ski as long as the vest has at least three straps!
-It amazes me, as I am sure that it does you, that I have so much to deal with, but feel just great!
I added this information because I don't think that it is fair to point out just the strong points, then you find out and it is a turn off. I would rather have you turned off now than to contact me. Knowledge is strength. When the one comes along that this does not bother, contact me. I will still be contacting some who interest me. If you have any questions, you know the drill.
Religion- I was raised Lutheran, but I love Joel Osteen, Baptist. More ministers should focus on the motivational side.
