A little about me...
Bad stuff about me: .Like most 57 year-olds, I have some health issues but nothing catchy. .I am a bit of a procrastinator. This dating thing can be scary. My son has been encouraging me to date though. I try to be neat but two guys living together... I've been told we're improving though. I'm a big guy, only 6' 7”, but some people are intimidated by that. Really, I'm a big marshmallow. .I would like my TV better if I could share it. .I'm not much of a sports fan. I will watch the Superbowl, but I won't be in front of the TV for every event. As you can see from my picture, food is a pleasure for me but I'm losing weight now. I've already taken off 25 pounds! Good stuff about me: 1 I'm strong and willing to help if I can, when I can. .I try to be open-minded. I'm faithful always and loyal; a one woman man. I'm generous with my time and my money when I can be. Once I get comfortable, I will talk your ear off. I'm aiming for an “attitude of gratitude” now. I want to set a good example for my son and be happy for a change. I'm easy-going. If you are sick and need something, I'll go get it for you. .I'm affectionate. I'm a Trekkie/Whovian.
About the one I'm looking for...
Tthank you for taking an interest in me. Let me save time for all by listing up-front some personal relationship deal-breakers for me: 1.I can't stand smoking. I won't kiss an ashtray. 2.Having a drink over dinner is ok but no excessive drinking.. 3. I'm a progressive Catholic. I don't do well with zealots. 4.Not wanting to be around my bi-racial son. This is a major deal-breaker for me. 5. I've never seen any need for me to own a gun. Hunting is fine but no armory please. 6. Please be a dog/cat lover. 7. No drama queens. 8.Don't play with people's emotions.. 9.No drug addicts.
I'm looking for a kind, caring, fun, adventurous, sweet, cute woman. Someone with whom to build a loving relationship and enjoy life. Let's do things and/ or cuddle in front of a fire or TV or just enjoy each others company! I need and want a playful yet mature woman who is easygoing and will love my bi-racial son Sean, Princess the dog, and Shredder the cat as her own.
I'd just like to add...
I know I didn't include everything about me, but we have to have something to talk about later. Let me add this, I want to get to know the person I'm with first, and will ask permission as things progress.
12.I love to travel. I need a loving companion for the rest of my life. I don't do well alone. I want to share a bathroom and closet again. I want to make you so happy you're with me that your smile will never leave your lips. My perfect first date would be a coke and cookies or sno-cones on a park bench overlooking a lake or river, then wandering through antique shops or a flea market to see the sights while we talk. My perfect evening date would be dinner with a glass or two of wine, at a good restaurant with a movie thrown in. My perfect get-away together would be a beach, Las Vegas, or a cruise. By now, everyone uninterested should have closed this file and moved on to another guy. That's good because it's the ones who are still reading who interest me.
