I really am 58 years old, I got a divorce about three years ago, after a very long marriage, and I have no children. I remained good friends with my ex-wife until she passed away two years ago. I'm fortunate to be able to mostly work from home (which is great!), and I've been self-employed almost my entire adult life. I miss being in a long-term relationship, except for with my cat (Bonnie), and as talented as she is, she just doesn't get my sense of humor. All she does is give me this look like: 'You talking to me? Well, I don't see anyone else around here.' Purred with a Robert De Niro in Taxi Driver accent. Yeah, I know, she's got big-time feline acting chops. Now if I could just get her to improve a little on her singing and dancing skills, she would be a triple-threat.
I'm an avid tennis fan, but I don't watch or follow any other sports, or play video games. I would love to find a hiking partner to explore the various local hiking trails with. By myself, I can go days without turning on the TV, but I would very much enjoy sitting by someone's side and watching shows or movies or whatever. You could probably get me to do about anything by dangling the appropriate carrot (men are sooo easy in that regard; it's really appalling!). Me: "So, what would you like to do today, Baby Cakes?" (I don't really use the term 'Baby Cakes' but it seems to work here.) You: "Let's go spend the entire day shoe shopping, and then later..." Trust me, I'll soon be headed out the door, car keys in hand, a smile of anticipation on my naive face.
