I've been married twice. My first wife died in 1986 after less than four years of marriage. I spent the next 18 years or so raising our son and daughter as a single parent. When my daughter finished her freshman year in college in 2004 I married my second wife. In January of this year she decided that our personalities were to different to stay together. Our divorce was final in December 09. I am now looking for a patient, non-obsessive person with a positive outlook on life and a super sense of humor. This person must not sweat the small stuff and wise enough to realize it is all small stuff. We are here for a short time.
I will admit I have made more than my share of mistakes in the name of love. No matter how disappointing they were I have always been able to come away with knowledge and experience I previously did not have.
For the most part the few relations I have had ended in friendship. The ones that did not were not because I did not try.
I am mostly laid back and easy going. Easy to talk to and eager to listen.
I have a motorcycle and ride as much as the weather allows. I love a tree lined country road that goes on forever. I also enjoy watching movies of just about any type.
My fashion style is very casual. Mostly jeans t-shirt with a nice shirt over it. I clean up pretty good. The personality trait that makes me unique is I rarely see things the way others do. I have a very active imagination I do my best work outside the box. I am very fond of lucid dreaming. Sometimes when I wake up I feel like The dream may have been another reality. Then again sometimes I feel that way all day, week,...........
I place a high value on open and honest communication. If there is a problem lets look at all side and not rush to point fingers.
I was not put on this planet to hurt people and I try to stay away from people with a habit of hurting others. Mistakes can be made and feelings can be hurt but if real communication is there which includes listening to problems or revealing unvoiced expectations, things can be worked out. Often I have trouble picking up on other peoples intentions. I can miss a lot of cues and sometimes perceive cues that are not there. I. I haven't given up on love. I know that there is someone out there that would want to to share a life with me. I will continue to search for her.
Even though I attended the same church for over 20 years while the kids were growing up I consider myself more spiritual than religious. Every religion seems to have dogma and that dogma is a "sacred cow". For instance there are some Christians that at one time said it was wrong to dance, play cards, go to movies. Those same religions now find nothing wrong with those activity's.
You cannot defeat temptation by avoiding it you have to look it straight in the eyes and tell it you will not take over my life. Do not get my started on dogma!
I see a new life beginning for me on the horizon. Think about what you want an maybe you will come to reach out and touch someone special. All I ask is to be able to be with someone who will except me as me. Someone who will mean the world to me. I am looking forward to whoever the Lord will send my way. Sometimes I stumble and take some time to regain my balance. But balance in life is what I seek. Balance with a woman I love and adore.
I do consider myself a gentle man. Slow to anger and willing to try new things. I am not judgmental and am open to a wide variety of viewpoints Sometimes its the differences in style that make life more interesting and worthwhile. Open yourself to alternatives. I will look forward to hearing from you. Thanks -D-
