I've been through a lot in my life, including more than my fair share of hardships. From these challenges, I've learned what is truly important to me. Treasuring those whom you love every single moment. Loving others, loving life and living it to the fullest. Never holding back, because when we hold back, we cannot discover all the incredibly beautiful experiences and feelings that are possible in this life. ❤️

I'm looking for a woman who will *communicate* her thoughts, feelings and her passions with me. I listen well and am a very supportive, encouraging man. For my woman, I'm sensitive, loving, passionate, and protective. I want us to share our lives with each other. I can and will accompany you anywhere, anytime you want. I want us to treasure being able to talk about anything with each other. I also hope you enjoy nature and the beautiful outdoors, taking walks together, making each other laugh, snuggling together while watching a movie or listening to music, the divinity of a delicious meal accompanied by a glass of fine wine (or whatever you prefer), and passionate love making (am I allowed to say that aloud?!) followed by romantic pillow talk. I love new experiences, so will you please introduce me to the many things that you value and enjoy? I hope so, for I literally love to learn! For me, love that lasts is an inexplicable heart, soul, mind and body attraction/connection that grows deeper and stronger over a lifetime when well nurtured. Healthy doses of the following are a good start: being each other's best friend, laughing together and often, total honesty, keeping perspective, communicating, listening attentively, building one another up/inspiring each other, teamwork, compromise, humility, sacrifice, and above all else, passion, commitment and gratitude.

More About Me

Favorite Movie:

Star Wars

Favorite Book:

The Bible. I don't claim to understand it, but it's truly an amazing Book.

Favorite Food:

I like almost anything! Since living in South Africa for two years, I've fallen in love with sushi and seafood.

I love most fruits (often with plain yoghurt, honey and granola, yum!), a great Supreme pizza on a hand-tossed crust, and real vanilla ice cream (rare in stores).

Favorite Music:

Classical, jazz, folk, instrumental, Christian/gospel/soul, Classic Rock. But being a musician, I'm surprisingly open to and accepting of most genres of music.

Dress Style:

I like to eat healthy for the most part and stay physically fit. I think most would consider me reasonably attractive. Through the years it's been the case that, upon learning my age, people have been surprised, always telling me that I look much younger than my actual age.

Being retired, I like to stay casually dressed and relaxed when home. However, if entertaining company or going out for dinner, a movie, shopping, a social gathering, sporting event, etc., I clean up quite nicely and dress the part.

Humor:

Quick, witty, light-hearted, occasionally silly or wild and crazy. Sometimes dry. Once in a blue moon, completely obtuse and totally incomprehensible!

Hobbies & Interests:

I love walks (both romantic and health-oriented), being outdoors/in nature, playing the piano, listening to music, watching movies, casual singing. I love animals, especially dogs and cats. I'm competent with technology, particularly PCs, laptops, Android phones and tablets. I've also had an interest in high fidelity audio systems since my teen years. In recent years I've grown very fond of wine tasting as well as enjoying fine food.

Above all else, I treasure sharing life experiences with someone I love and who loves me. Without a partner to share life with, even the enjoyable aspects of life can feel empty to me.

Travelled:

I am a U.S. citizen. Most of my life has been spent living in mid-western states in the USA -- Illinois, and later Indiana. I've also lived in the state of Maryland (4 years) and briefly in California and Tennessee. I've traveled to most of the states in America.

Internationally I've traveled to Mexico, Canada, the Philippines, South Africa, Dubai (UAE), and Swaziland. I've been to South Africa eight times since 2011, and have lived in Cape Town, South Africa for two (non-consecutive) years: July 2014 - June 2015, and March 2017 - March 2018. I received my South African four-year temporary residency in July 2017, good through July 2021. I have not yet applied for South African permanent residency/citizenship.

I'd like to travel all over the world.

Cultural Adaption:

It depends upon how great the cultural differences are. Like so many Americans, I speak but one language - English. So having a partner that speaks English fairly fluently, even if it isn't her native language, would be necessary. Culturally, I would think that the more similar the cultures, the easier it will be for both of us to adapt to our cultural differences. The more dissimilar, the more challenging it will be for us.

Romance:

So many possibilities! How about staying in a romantic cottage nestled in the woods, perhaps by a secluded beach or in the mountains? If we're near wine country, some wine tasting would be divine. If the beach is calling, we can swim, walk the beach, soak in some sun, enjoy a picnic (wind allowing), adore the beauty around us and the beauty of just being together. If we're laughing, having fun and can't help ourselves, some spontaneous PDA might occur if, like me, you're okay with that. Or, we hold such desires until we've dined and have returned to our cottage. Then, well...

...it's surely PDA (*Private* D. of A.) time, yes?! Then the Calm after the Storm sees us cuddling, engaged in pillow talk until finally we fall into blissful slumber, your head resting on my chest, or us spooning, or however you prefer falling asleep. In the morning, I fix you your favourite breakfast, of course. ;)

Personality:

I love people and like to believe the best of people, even if that means I'm occasionally naive.

I'm optimistic, fun-loving, encouraging, intuitive and empathetic. I'm quite intelligent. Despite that, I'm ruled more by my heart than by my head. I can be quite serious. But I'm also fun and witty, particularly once I'm comfortable with you and vice versa. The older I get, the more I value relationships and shared experiences.

I will be very supportive and encouraging of you, the woman I love. I'm a sensitive man, which is usually a positive. It means I'll be very tuned in to you and your thoughts, feelings, hopes, desires and needs. Once in awhile I can be over-sensitive to my own perceived needs and simply need to be "set straight" by someone with better perspective...i.e. you!

I grew up in a great family. I have five older brothers, all still living and happily married with children and grandchildren. My mom passed in 2011 at age 87 and my dad passed in 2015 at age 92. So I love family. Family is important to me. Therefore, if your family is important to you and isn't dysfunctional, I see no reason I wouldn't be comfortable with, loving towards and accepted by your family.

My Perfect Match is:

A woman who loves spending Quality Time Together and/or who loves Physical Touch. These are two of The Five Love Languages (google it). They just happen to be my Top 2. If your Top 2 include one or both of these, loving the other in the way (s)he feels most loved will be more natural, since we speak each other's "love language".

Beyond that, a woman who is committed, faithful, generous, intelligent yet light-hearted, has a great sense of humour, and enjoys/values many of the same things in life as I. Of course, some differences are an absolute. I def do NOT want to marry myself! ;)
