A little about me...
A well traveled (54 countries) retired international hotelier... US, Mid East & Caribbean! Now I fill my days as a self-employed Broker of Specialty/Gourmet foods for TN & AL. Travel, wine, food, & being on the water, preferable at the helm of a sailboat are passions. I love youthful endeavors in the company of a cherished lady (even shopping). I am a true romantic and have the get up & go of a younger guy. If you're young at heart, in your mid-late 50's or early 60's... email me. I have been told I have a unique appetite for living life & want to enjoy all that I can. I`m cancer free (10+ years) but like to live life, like each day were my last. You will appreciate that I keep a spacious home nicely, but lived-in! Its been said that I know my way around a kitchen, & can put out some pretty good tasting cuisine. I enjoy caring for the needs of someone special to me, & making life's hurdles easier to jump. Biz associates say: I'm a straight shooting strategist. Friends say: I'm an easy going guy who enjoys travel & good times. My gal will add that... I'm caring, intimate, always there for her, & eager to be at the center of her universe. I dislike selfies. I'll get some close-ups taken; I seem to always be behind the camera!
About the one I'm looking for...
A slightly younger, yet age-appropriate, like-minded, smart woman who is an outgoing person with polish & classic style. She will be comfortable wearing blue jeans, a complimenting skirt, or the occasional evening dress. Please have a personality that is a joy to be around, & doesn't harbor ill will. Sharing a zest & spontaneous desire for living life large would also be a nice trait. If she makes a commitment to be at my side she must be able to honor her commitment to our exclusive relationship. The right woman will enjoy affection, intimacy, being pampered & appreciated for all she means to me. She will enjoy wining & dining, traveling to domestic or international destinations. She'll be playful and okay with holding hands or arm-in-arm in public. If she can be up for a dance every now & then, even if it is only to our own music on a distant balcony, that would be sweet. She no doubt will enjoy diverse music styles, different cultures, & cuisines. I hope she can also be a supportive, gracious, hostess when entertaining neighbors and friends alike. It doesn't take much to keep a woman special in my life... but please be honest!
I'd just like to add...
I have been Widowed (since Jan. 2010). I am a true-blue, flag flying American proud of my French, Dutch & Irish heritage. Being the son of an International businessman. I'm the eldest of six sons, and spent the first 15 years of my life traveling & being educated through 20 countries on several continents. I'm looking for a delightfully witty gal, who looks forward to each day with a smile on her lips and in her heart. If this fits your outlook on life... I would love to hear from you. Ideally you have traveled, or have a willingness to. I'm looking to enjoy a special gal's company in a caring, lasting partnership. I think I know what I'm looking for.
