Anyway, I love to read and learn new things. I read the newspaper almost every day. I am an engineer and so I have an analytical mind. Did you ever meet someone who actually likes math puzzles? You have now :)
More importantly, at least in this context, I am a hopeless romantic, looking for that romantic connection. That connection can be just a simple touch with the right woman.
I love spending time with that significant other, no matter what we are doing, but I do love to walk on the beach, hold hands etc. I also love hiking at Annadel park.
Just to be up-front and honest--my elderly mother lives with me in my house because she cannot afford a place of her own. But I own the home. I realize this can be a detriment to a good romance but my siblings are married and have families so just what am I to do? I can always come to your house! :)
Finally, don't be discouraged when reading my response to the children question in my Details section. I love kids and I have a 12 year old nephew who I worship. He's the greatest kid on earth--ok I am biased, sue me. I just do not want the responsibility of raising my own.
At my age I have done many things and been many places. Thus I like to reflect. And tell stories! Sometimes, when you are down, just put one foot in front of the other and move on. It is a big world out there.
Movies: The greatest movie I ever saw was The Goonies--Think about it; it had romance, adventure, good guys, bad guys, special effects, interesting characters, a good story and a happy ending. It had EVERYTHING! I just saw the movie Ghandi, and found it excellent. No wonder it won 8 academy awards!
Shows: My mom loves 2-1/2 men and therefore we HAVE to watch it every night, even though we have seen every episode many times.
Music: I play guitar, so anything with quality guitar work I like.
Food: All kinds. I don't handle real spicy food like I could when I was younger. Not big on drinking, but a light beer or glass of Zin is ok :)
1. Peace and time to think. In this fast paced world, we don't take the time to stop and smell the roses.
2. Of course the obvious one (everyone says this in their answer to this question) LOVE!
3. Sex (with the right person) is good :)
4. A good job/career (of course if I were rich...)
