I have been on other dates since that time of course, and even fell in love again a few years later. But online dating will remain a throw of the dice. So I don't expect anything to come of this, but I post again on POF although I am full of imperfections and at 56, I am still uncertain about what many people take for granted. That there is life beyond death, things will be all right because there is someone or something out in our universe who looks over us. I wonder about this at my older age now, and my skepticism, that I'm not happy about, can give me hopelessness. But I refuse to give in to hopelessness.
I believe that the life I have now is a precious thing. So this man whose profile you may or may not be reading refuses to be artificial and talk about boring things like "wine over conversation" or "I can wear jeans or dress up." All normal things, but it sure does not tell alot about me or anyone else.
I am simply a man on a journey, and I hope to travel light and be happy along life's way as I can whether that be fishing in the Gulf, carrying on and laughing with friends, traveling somewhere I've never been before. At 56, I am trying to let my spool of thread come off instead of reeling it in like a ball of yarn. I want to be played out whenever I do approach my last days. My plan: No less than 20 years from now, I hope to be alive and kicking, writing poetry, watching the stars, a bonfire and a bag of oysters to shuck. I refuse to go quietly in the night.
I would like to be contacted by those who are not put off by these eccentricities, but, in fact, identifies with them. Thank you to anyone who finished this small attempt to describe myself to women, who confuse me more the older I get, but whom I find to be the most fascinating company a man can have.
And by the way, I am a romantic dreamer, and I no longer apologize for that. I believe in romantic love, loyal friendships, and happiness along the way. I will have it no other way.
