Family and friends are the top priority of my life. (Wow ... I sound like a new puppy).
Spending time with the person I care for, and who cares for me, is a top priority as well. Matters not, what we are doing, or where we are going. The time together is simply what is important and special.
Showing mutual affection and respect is very important to me as well. People who say it is to them as well, yet, act to the contrary, are tremendously disappointing to me. In my view, telling and showing each other they are special, respected and appreciated is what makes a truly loving relationship. I believe that open, honest and SINCERE communication is the basis for a strong friendship. A strong and sincere friendship is the basis for any possible relationship. Without that friendship, a LASTING relationship is not likely. Please don't tell me you are my friend, then prove yourself to the contrary.
I am Honest, Sincere, and Trustworthy. (Back to that puppy thing again ... LOL. By the way, I am house broken too.)
My integrity is simply not for sale at any price. You can judge for yourself. Let's chat on the phone and/or meet for coffee.
I was in the Durable Medical Equipment (DME) business. The patients I dealt with were primarily seniors. Therefore, I was blessed with the privilege of being with them on a frequent basis. Their knowledge, wisdom and courage was/is inspiring. I am spellbound by their stories. When I rest my head on my pillow, there was/is a special feeling I can't explain. Knowing I made a minor difference in the quality of a seniors life that day, truly matters to me. It is the most rewarding accomplishment of my life. I
I can only hope that one day, (That day is now here), someone will care about how my day went as much as I cared about how someone else's day went that day. In short; my interaction with another truly matters.
My family means more to me than life itself.
True and sincere friends.
Continued ability to forgive
Being with others
Food, shelter and transportation
OK ... OK .. .OK, that is more than six. I could go on and on.
Someone with whom we can fulfill our mutual inward and outward needs; more importantly, the mutual inward needs, and someone who's needs I can fulfill in the same way. NOT someone who's priority in life is to sit and drink and smoke, then find fault with, and condemn everyone else. (How shallow can one be?)
I wonder if I will ever find that person? To get real, I am a 66 year old man. My heart and desire to be a true friend and more is sincere.
Hopefully, I have learned from both the good and not so good events of the past. There is no benefit in rehashing them. I refuse to be a hostage of the past.
Granted, not all events were grand and glorious. Are they ever? They were events none the less, and I hope I learned something from each and every one of them. With that; I am quite pleased.
I simply want to meet someone who knows what it means to be a friend and to do things with. Perhaps catch a movie, visit on the phone and enjoy a bite to eat with, etc. If it grows from a friendship to a relationship, that would be great. I am not looking to, "ride off into the sunset together", (although ... I must admit that I am guilty of being quick to advance things after a date or two.
I live alone, an am just fine with that. But ... I too, get lonely being by myself ALL the time. However, I prefer it vs. being with the wrong person, and will not give up on the the idea that there is someone out there who values honesty, loyalty, commitment and integrity as much as I do.
I am NOT seeking a bikini model 10, 20 or 30 years younger than me. NOT AT ALL!!! Who we are beats within the center of our chest. THAT is what matters to me!! Age is nothing more than a number.
If you are truly a kind and genuine person and not just playing games, please contact me. If you are not sincere, please don't bother.
There are many strange people on the internet, both men and women. We have ALL met them!!! Please know that I am NOT one of them. I am Not a predator.
I do prefer visiting on the phone vs. endless, winks, flirts and messages. I assure you there would NOT be inappropriate language or topics. If you agree it is easier to get to know someone during a live conversation, please let me know.
