Relationship status: Widower
Seeking women: 50-69
Who am I? Smart, funny/witty, attractive, very athletic, successful man, great dad, sensual, affectionate, compassionate, passionate aboutnliving life to the fullest, adventurous, spontaneous, respectful, trustworthy, dependable, great conversationalist and a good listener, consider myself as someone who truly enjoys life and especially anything related to nature / outdoors. I believe that traveling and experiencing other countries, makes us appreciate our own nation a lot more and at the same time, it affords us the unique opportunity of meeting interesting people and learning about their histories, cultures, etc. living the good life but wanting a TRUE PARTNER and more fun, enjoyment and pleasure...if you TRULY appreciate me you will have me eating out of the palm of your hands...and make a home cooked meal on a semi-regular basis and you are GOLDEN! lolMy work requires me to travel so I am looking for someone who would enjoy (and have the ability to join me) in some of those brief trips, perhaps for a romantic weekend in a place like the Santo Domingo Hotel in Ciudad Antigua, Guatemala: a hotel that is built in what used to be an old Spanish monastery! If you happen to enjoy nature and the simple things in life, but at the same time can appreciate the arts, culture and enjoying a nice glass of wine and a gourmet dinner, surrounded by beautiful gardens, classical music in the background and candlelight everywhere, then let's meet and see if any sparks are created! Or for a totally different change of pace, how about a week in Cartagena, located in beautiful Colombia; a couple of days of dining, dancing salsa and merengue (by the way: I can hold my own on the dance floor... jajaja
) and visiting antique shops, etc in the Old Ciudad Amurallada followed by several days in Isla Baru, just enjoying the beautiful beaches, solitude/privacy of the place and the two of us! I appreciate people who are down-to-earth and know what they want out of life. Hopefully I can meet someone who is equally at ease in a black cocktail dress for an evening out in the town and the next day, just enjoying each other's company, perhaps while cooking at home, in jeans, sharing a good bottle of wine. I have a very simple outlook in life: It is not necessarily the place but who you are with that makes it special! I am looking for someone hopefully for a steady relationship; someone to fall in love with and be there for one another; someone that brings a smile to my face when I think of you, at any time of the day, regardless of where I might be. I believe that romance and intimacy are life-long companions, irrespective of your age or whatever stage in life you might be.

It is hard to describe oneself but if I were to say a little about me then I would say comprehensively I'm very romantic and I plan on enjoying life to it's fullest.I'm very simple and i take life simple, I am looking for someone to grow old with and love me as my own partner. I have been through enough to know who I am as a person and what I am looking for in someone as a woman. I am a fun loving, gentle person with a loving heart and i am looking for someone i can share that with and also share with me all my sorrows and joys. I have a lot of old fashion values that are hard to find in others today. I'm looking not only for a wonderful lover woman for life. Mind games and I don't click. Honesty is #1, communication & friendship. Life is to short, we never know what tomorrow will bring. Everyday is a fresh start to our lives & yesterday is water under a bridge. So let's live life!!!!!I would do anything to make my friends and family happy and secure. I am not one to make judgments of others and I would like to be treated the same way. I believe in the 'golden rule' and I try my best to live what I believe. I am attractive, successful very down to earth God fearing man
. Who holds these words to be self evidence, that I am somebody. A Man whose mind is made up of what I am determined to do in life.I want someone who is ready to build a friendship and see what happen in the near future, I would be most happy if it leads to a serious relationship. I'm independent, supportive, lovable, talented,Intelligent,sensational, Honest man , who is walking by faith and not by sight. I'm very trustworthy and i have come to realized that you are just as important as I am a Man who is willing to walk side by side with his future mate And give her 100% satisfaction of her needs and wants. As long as it is decent and in order...I don't mind the age difference, all i am looking for is a true love of my life. As far as what I am looking for, I don't have a million of high standards! I am looking for someone that I get along with, can have fun with and that can be my best friend! Someone that I can't wait to come home to... I think having someone that you know is there waiting for you while I'm out working would make the time away and the job that much more enjoyable! Looking for someone that is the one I wake up and fall asleep thinking about, I am like everyone not perfect, have some flaws and always try to work better on myself and the way i react to people around me.
I was born into a military family of two kids, I have a sister older than me but she live in Spain and got married there, we are almost the best friends in life we talk almost about everything that is how we raised by our parents so before me joining an online dating site i told her about it and she was happy i am finally getting out of my comfort zone and going into the dating scene again. I love to travel and mostly i have travel for work and fun. I visited France a few times. I snow skied in the French Alps and visited Paris. I have also been to Denmark, Sweden, Norwegian, Austria and Switzerland Germany and Italy there are some countries have been to and i will tell you more about my experiences with those countries, but it has always been nice to meet new people.
I've been widow for over four years, she died of Leukemia, It was really the hardest time of my life, but i have been able to walk away from the past and let the sound of my feet upon the ground, now i am looking to what the future holds for me. I have two daughters and they are really wonderful girls. they live away from home and have been on their own for a very long time because of International Education. I believe in living a healthy and wholesome lifestyle and my faith is the foundation of my life. I love the outdoors, power walks, leisurely walks, bicycle riding, and swimming as well as structured work outs. I'm content just being on the patio listening to the birds, looking at the stars at night. I strive to live a balance life.
I have a series of hobbies. I love to exercise, sing, act, write, watch and play sports. I am an expert in country music. Music is one of the most important things in my life. I am a guy that is filled with a love for life. I am filled with energy and passion for all the great things that life has to offer. I agree with the word that say - each day is a present. Each day is a wonderful gift. We should all be grateful for the beauty that surrounds our lives each day. I am a very affectionate, kindhearted, romantic and sentimental man. This means I like to do the simple things like open doors, send cards, flowers, little unexpected surprises - things along those lines - when I feel close to someone.! People call me "The Definitive Gentleman!
As I mentioned earlier, honesty - and being true to what you feel - is something I totally believe in
I hope we can continue to get to know each other! I also feel like we have a large amount of the same qualities! Simply put, our outlooks seem to be very much alike.
I will be expecting your email and hope you find understanding reading about me, it would be a great start to a wonderful friendship. And guess what? I am going to be honest once more. I will be peeking consistently in hopes of getting a quick reply from you and if you don't mind me asking, I have limited access to this site on my work computer so if you don't mind, Can we communicate off this site? If yes, then please drop me your email address and I'll write you more on your email. Looking forward to hear from you again soon!

We were not foolish to fall in love with them. Our mistake was not knowing that we fell in love with fools.
