Stop. Look. Listen. I am a nice guy. I am frustrated with certain people who use this site to scam, use and abuse. I am just looking for someone to get to know, spend time with, and maybe have a future together. I do not want to send money to Ghana or Virginia Beach. If I was looking to pay someone for companionship I would not be on this site. If I needed more virtual friends, I would be on Facebook. I have to believe that I am not the only person frustrated with this type of interaction. So please, if you are serious, looking to talk and meet in person after a reasonable period of correspondence, contact me. If not, please go in peace. Happy New Year.
My independence day came early this year. The divorce is officially finalized. I am not celebrating that my relationship failed when she left me and counseling did not work. However, for a non-contested divorce without children or property disputes, I am happy that two and half years later, I am finished with the Judge and my attorneys promising within a month for the last 27 months. 5/29/2014
Eternally an optimist, I am still looking for that special person to share some good times for the next couple decades. I am frustrated that I have not met more people. I send out messages, get the occasional reply, and have the rare conversation. I am literate, considerate and, when appropriate, passionate. I have a wide range of interests and am a great listener. I can remember the thrill of a summer romance. Long hot days and steamy nights, ice cream, a nice cookout or picnic on the beach are just a few of my memories. I am too young to live on memories alone.
Is anyone interested in exploring the possibilities? I look forward to hearing from you. I will reply to all messages.
I originally wrote the following when I first joined the sight. Things have changed, especially time. Things have remained the same, the essence of the message I intended to portray who I am.
In the interest of clarity, I am now 48. The divorce is not finalized, so I am legally married, but certainly more than separated.
Regardless, the following is my original, unedited profile, for what it is worth...
Slightly Used 45 year old male with intelligence, character and determination. Average height, not tragic looking with a shrinking belly and a very firm core.
A decent cook who loves reading, going out, and a nice quiet evening at home with or without friends. Used to play sports, I am getting back in shape and love playing Frisbee, hiking, camping and so much more.
Separated and looking to make friends that will lead to something bigger. Seeking an intelligent, independent, interesting women who likes back rubs and breakfast in bed. I would like a friend and lover who will share the journey wherever it takes us.
