Well hi there. I've been putting my personal life on "hold" long enough so I've decided to put myself "out there" so to speak before I get too set in my ways. Time has been slipping away on me & now here I am completely out of my comfort zone. The truth is that I'm just not that comfortable with technology. So there, I said it, I've admitted that I have a problem & as "they" say admitting something is the 1st step to recovery. Speaking of technology, is it just me or do you find that the more technology we have available to us the less people seem to know? Just a thought.
So what would you like to know that isn't already covered in the basics.This is harder than I thought it would be. I've been single for many years now simply because I haven't made it (myself) a priority. To describe myself I would say I'm kind, thoughtful, caring about the things that are important to me which I find often differs from what we are constantly being told to care about. I'm not someone that pays much attention to or cares about what some popular celebrity or politician tells us to care about. In other words I'm a lousy follower & have a mind of my own. With that said, I've been self-employed for a good part of my life. I like the challenge of running a business & taking control of my own destiny. People that know me would probably (no make that definitely) tell you I'm stubborn & too serious (I'm working on it). I'm just being honest here & isn't that how relationships should start? I do have a healthy sense of humour & quite often it's @ my own expense.
As stated in the details area I'm divorced & have grown children living their own successful lives. They are extremely important to me. Its been a pleasure to watch them find their passion in life & see the choices they've made. I've always believed you have to find your passion & go after it whether that's in careers or relationships. So I guess you could say I'm taking my own advice.
Aside from the already mentioned interests I also like home renovation projects from design to completion (real & on tv) as well as cooking/baking. I like to think I know my way around the kitchen although I'm no chef. I enjoy cooking for family & friends. I love golf (playing & watching) even though just like the personal aspect of it, no one else to depend on so I take full credit/responsibility as the case may be for how I play which is usually bad. Oh well, some day. I like to travel when I can. I've been to Europe a few times, Caribbean, & pretty much all over North America.
My idea of a good time with someone is going for a walk/hike, stopping in somewhere for coffee & having a good discussion about whatever is current. I also enjoy "good movies" which very from drama's, thrillers to comedies. Also love it when any of my kids are home & ask me to make them my "famous pancakes". I'm not bragging here but its been rumoured that they're better than some famous restaurant in this neck-of-the-woods. I guess you'll just have to find out for yourself, ha ha.
On a more serious note, no, not that serious, I'm seeking an attractive woman with decent values that still believes in being treated like a woman which to me means holding the door for her, opening the door, bringing flowers on occasion, seating her first, etc. If that sounds "old fashioned" I say "so be it".
If you have a mind of your own and any of this sounds interesting to you then give me a shout. Thanks for taking the time & have a great day.
My Perfect First Date
My first date would be taking my date to one of the finest restaurants where i will have a bouquet of flowers waiting for her with a note from me to her telling her how pretty she looks,Then a long walk on the beach holding hands and ending with a glass of wine and intimate conversation.
