Relationship wise, I'm the one who listens and asks questions. I'm finding that causes problems for some. If a person needs a sounding board for resolving a problem, they come to me. Unfortunately, this had led to relationships where all the other person wants to do is vent and not do anything to change to make sure that the problem isn't anymore. While I have a high tolerance for listening, I don't do well if all someone wants to do is "whine." Complaining about a problem won't change anything.
Now that the kids are grown, it's time to start seriously looking for someone to spend me time with. I am not looking for an FB, one nighters, or meaningless texting relationships. If you're not serious about looking for a relationship that will last, don't bother.
I'm also getting back into taking pictures with film. Yes, digital photography is fast and easy, but it seems a bit empty to me. Somehow it's taken the fun out of taking a really superior photo.
I enjoy writing, and have a good eye for framing pictures.
I read a bit of everything.

I'm not here for you to tell me how terrible your life is. Tell me how you think you can change it for the better and we'll work on it together.
Also, I'm politically ambivalent. I figure we have a selection of none of the above these days. They aren't making the decisions anyway. The folks funding the campaigns are.
If things look dark and gloomy and your relationships have all failed because it's all the other persons fault, I'm probably not the right person for you.
On the other hand, if you've learned from your mistakes and have decided not to do that again, and are capable of growth, by all means, give me a write.
