My name is mark. I'm a divorced father of 1 son, and I'm a 47 year old person who is creating my kind of life now that I'm divorced. I have learned a little about happiness and how the future is an open journey for me when I finally took control of my life, and i've had both enriching and sad experiences since. I would prefer to have a partner in life to share whats left, enjoying the company of someone who knows laughter, and has a big heart & who appreciates the lives of others. If you are open to talking, I'd be interested in saying hi so if you find some interest, just follow the quote liderdo to me on 2003, and perhaps we'll get the chance one of these days. I hope your open to at least trying.I come from a poor family but am happy about what i am now, and was raised in a small town. You will find me to be a very simple and easy going person, not quick to fall in love (hopefully your not either), yet wanting a deep love that begins as a friendship. My folks owned a few businesses over the course of my life so socialization has been pretty easy all through my childhood. I'm outgoing and friendly, and it is not my intent to ever hurt anyone. I'd enjoy getting to know someone who fits the bill for being in my life. I value my family and my friendships and my time spent with them. My cup is generally full, and I've been told I brighten a room with my presenMy needs are not great when it comes to material things. However, at this point in time, my heart longs to have someone who is kind and gentle, patient, loving and not to judgemental with people in general. I'm a good natured man with "A goods heart", and I'd love to hear from you and live the rest of my life where love is always present. I would hope your strong, self assured, secure, full of life, your in good health, you have a taste for adventure, and just enjoy the simple pleasures of living and loving.
