First off...I am not 65 (in my mind)...I may have been born back in that day, but as I hope you know and know how you feel...we are not our ages...I believe we reach a certain plateau of age - outlook, interests, feelings (mentally and emotionally) and stay there...the physical is up to you...
I have recently moved back to KC (hometown) from Charlotte, NC. Loved it there - love the South - having also lived in Nashville back when...have contemplated moving back South someday...who knows...may find my love interest to keep me here...
I believe in a good chat/email, however I am not looking for a pen pal and endless back and forth chit chat... I do believe that after reading one's profile and a few emails...two people should be able to determine if they are able to: visit on the phone-put a voice to the nice emails, meet for a coffee, app or drink...that said, l do believe the woman should decide these things, that she should feel comfortable/safe/good about this decision...
I am a happy, single man..varied and eclectic tastes, I love to cook. Dinner for two at home or out or entertaining family and friends,good conversation,music, the arts- museums, galleries, theatre, movies, street fairs...golfing (badly), walks/hikes, kayaking,road trips(singing in the car on road trips), laughs...I am spontaneous and always up for new/interesting experiences and ideas..I am a Midwestern Man who posesses what I consider the best in Midwestern values and upbringing..like to know? Just ask. Born in DC, raised in Missouri/Kansas, I am a child of the sixties and still posess thoughts/feelings/ideals of that era...love,peace,happiness..if you lived in the sixties, were young,curious,open and adventurous at heart..you know what I mean..and remember: "The Best Things in Life Aren't Things"
I have faced adversity in my life and have come out stronger for it. My moral compass is fixed.
I enjoy fun,interesting conversation, laughs-intellectual curiosity is important to me..I am street smart/intelligent/well read..a student of life's experience..unlike some online I do not require someone with a degree..that is limiting..we all posess intelligence beyond any measure..
I feel intellectual curiosity begets intelligence..an education does not an educated person make.
"A guy out there was meant to be the love of your life, your best friend, your soul mate, the one you can tell your dreams to...
He'll brush the hair out of your eyes. Send you flowers when you least expect it.
He'll call to say goodnight or just 'cause he's missing you..
He'll look you in your eyes and tell you, 'you're the most beautiful girl in the world' and for the first time in your life, you'll believe it"
- Nicholas Sparks
