I would expect to get to know you and like you and know you like me before we would work on the love part and I believe in taking things as slow as seems natural.
As a recent widower I find myself single again and hopeful I can find a good match. Of course I can't replace my wife of 30 years, she was one of a kind. I can hope to find a new adventure, a new partner and best friend to share all of life with, along with all the erotic passion of a true romance.
I'm also very open to making regular friendship based on shared interests. So, even if you are not a romantic match, but share other interests or just want to chat, lets give that a try.
Professionally I'm a electronics engineer and am interested in technology on a hobby basis as well. I'm an outdoors type when the weather is good, and I look forward to camping in the Adirondacks this summer with someone. Also gardening is a hobby of mine.
Since I've been asked: I'm about 3/4 German, nearly 1/4 English, with a bit of Native American thrown in. Personally, race doesn't matter to me.
I think I am a good listener and am good at talking through problems.
I like Evanesence, Sarah Mclachlan, Green Day;
I know its unusual for my age, but I like a lot of symphonic metal: Leaves Eyes, Night Wish, Xandria.
Once in a while: hip hop and r&b like Faith Evans and Saigon.
Older rock: Neil Young , Stevie Nicks
Garage rock: Jack White
Pop country: Carrie Underwood; Taylor Swift, The band Perry
When I'm in the mood I like baroque style harpsichord music, pipe organ classical music.
Currently I'm reading "What Women Want Men to Know" by Barbera
As for food, I like Mediterranean, and Chinese, but I don't get into a rut: I like variety.
variety in food and experiences
learning new things
ability and time to stay active
hope for the future
Oh wait that's not private - everyone who has seen me on the dance floor knows this. I am ready to learn and practice
As for something really private, you'll have to ask.
