I have a very deep admiration, respect and love for women. I know that it's rooted in the fact that I lost my Mother to Cancer at a young age, 10 years old...... No,I'm not looking for a Mother figure if that's what just ran through your mind......... My character traits came from my Aunts. They always said;" treat the women in your life as you would have treated your Mom or a sister". Not only great advice but the best advice.
I have never married but, not only have I had lengthy deep relationships in love, I was involved in one that was a family unit that allowed me to feel like a Dad and perform all the Dad responsibilities. The baby I hold in my profile shot is the child of my pseudo Daughter. Even though her Mom and I aren't involved in a couple relationship we remain very close by getting together for dinner, theater, travel to Austin and even weekend get aways and she often tells people that we are like brother and sister. Also a number of these past women not only have met one another but have become friends unto themselves.
What's the point of me telling you this? It's who I am, and let me be clear about something that may have otherwise steered you away, NO we do not bed each other, never ever. We simply still love one another and that's special.
The greatest tribute to the one Aunt, my Godmother, was when I laid her to rest a couple of years ago. Women that I dated came to the wake but five special ones came to the wake , funeral, and bereavement dinner and they sat together and exchanged stories about the dedication I had for Auntie and my family and stories about the relationships that these women forged with me as was told to me by my long time male best friend. Not only was that a tremendous complement, but it shows that you reap the seeds that you sow. As you can see I seem on the serious side but have a quick wit and enjoy using puns and love humorous banter. I'm a good friend, I'm one that stands up for the defenseless, I have a tendency to "help the birds with the broken wings". I'm thankful and grateful for all that I am.
When male friends ask me how do you do it? I simply tell them I never let the little head DICtate to the big head what to do.
