My self-summary
I am looking for a woman that has a healthy appetite for life and what it has to offer. A woman who is not afraid to have an open and honest relationship with a man that knows what he wants. She will have a certain amount of charm and attractiveness and be able to carry on an intelligent conversation. She knows her own mind and what pleases her. When ever we are together and no matter what we are doing we will know that we belong together. Honesty is of the utmost importance. My goal is to be with someone I am excited to come home. Are you a woman that is up for this kind of challenge? Willing to talk what love has to offer without regard? If so write me and it may lead to freedom from the mundane. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain in the realm of what you have dreamed about.

I've been married twice. My first wife died in 1986 after less than four years of marriage. I spent the next 18 years or so raising our son and daughter as a single parent. When my daughter finished her freshman year in college in 2004 I married my second wife. In January of this year she decided that our personalities were to different to stay together. Our divorce was final in December 09. I am now looking for a patient, non-obsessive person with a positive outlook on life and a super sense of humor. This person must not sweat the small stuff and wise enough to realize it is all small stuff. We are here for a short time.

I will admit I have made more than my share of mistakes in the name of love. No matter how disappointing they were I have always been able to come away with knowledge and experience I previously did not have.
For the most part the few relations I have had ended in friendship. The ones that did not were not because I did not try.
I am mostly laid back and easy going. Easy to talk to and eager to listen.

I have a motorcycle and ride as much as the weather allows. I love a tree lined country road that goes on forever. I also enjoy watching movies of just about any type.

My fashion style is very casual. Mostly jeans t-shirt with a nice shirt over it. I clean up pretty good. The personality trait that makes me unique is I rarely see things the way others do. I have a very active imagination I do my best work outside the box. I am very fond of lucid dreaming. Sometimes when I wake up I feel like The dream may have been another reality. Then again sometimes I feel that way all day, week,...........

I place a high value on open and honest communication. If there is a problem lets look at all side and not rush to point fingers.

I was not put on this planet to hurt people and I try to stay away from people with a habit of hurting others. Mistakes can be made and feelings can be hurt but if real communication is there which includes listening to problems or revealing unvoiced expectations, things can be worked out. Often I have trouble picking up on other peoples intentions. I can miss a lot of cues and sometimes perceive cues that are not there. I. I haven't given up on love. I know that there is someone out there that would want to to share a life with me. I will continue to search for her.

Even though I attended the same church for over 20 years while the kids were growing up I consider myself more spiritual than religious. Every religion seems to have dogma and that dogma is a "sacred cow". For instance there are some Christians that at one time said it was wrong to dance, play cards, go to movies. Those same religions now find nothing wrong with those activity's.
You cannot defeat temptation by avoiding it you have to look it straight in the eyes and tell it you will not take over my life. Do not get my started on dogma!

I see a new life beginning for me on the horizon. Think about what you want an maybe you will come to reach out and touch someone special. All I ask is to be able to be with someone who will except me as me. Someone who will mean the world to me. I am looking forward to whoever the Lord will send my way. Sometimes I stumble and take some time to regain my balance. But balance in life is what I seek. Balance with a woman I love and adore.

I do consider myself a gentle man. Slow to anger and willing to try new things. I am not judgmental and am open to a wide variety of viewpoints Sometimes its the differences in style that make life more interesting and worthwhile. Open yourself to alternatives. I will look forward to hearing from you. Thanks -D-
What I’m doing with my life
Doing what I need to do for self improvement. Lose weight exercise and get a grip on habits that I am better off without.
I’m really good at
I can fix or repair just about anything. I have a gift for knowing how things work and why they don't work. I prefer to work on small detailed mechanisms but have done my share of auto/motorcycle repair. I am also a whiz at sourcing parts, instructions, and about anything you could be looking for.
The first things people usually notice about me
I like to use uncommon words to describe common situations. I enjoy exercising my vocabulary. Not in a snobby way its just that some words work better than other but are not used often.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I have an eclectic taste for music but my favorite would be 70's rock. I also have a passion for jazz flute. I suppose my favorite book is "Stranger in a Strange Land". When I do read it is usually Science Fiction.
Food I like most and will try any.
Movies would again be Science fiction, mysteries, comedies and drama.
TV would be all CSI, NCI, House, Bones, Nova, the Discovery channel.
Six things I could never do without
My kids and grandchild, a way to get away from the world for a time. Oh definitely the motorcycle, sense of smell, music, the ability to dream, awake and asleep.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Right now women. Who, where and when. Being in a relationship with the right person.
On a typical Friday night I am
For the most part I am at home relaxing and watching movies or TV. There are time when I need a little help relaxing but weekends only.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
For the right person I will reveal all. It's been a long journey getting to where I am now. Some of the stories will make you blush.
You should message me if
You are patient and willing to put up with a man who has been single for over 50 years of his life. Not by choice!

You would like to be around someone that understands the word LISTEN!

You find what I have written intrigues you and you have a sense of adventure.

Enjoy being close to someone and would like to get to know a little different kind of man.

..............No man is an island..................
