May 12, 2014, my 65th birthday, I write:
I start by paraphrasing the expressions of others that have shaped my thinking.
‘The past is known, set in stone, every day is a gift and so it’s called the present, the future is but a guess without guaranty, and that is why it's called a mystery.'
'Live your life with hopes and aspiration high, be kind, fair and balanced, and you will come to appreciate that after you have given it your all, you are able to rise up after you fall, to be able to try again.’
My life was affected when I became a widower at 48, married at 21, inseparable for 3 years before, a total of 30 years with 'one' woman. I re-married at 51 thinking my 2nd wife should be different from my first love, but I was wrong. I need a woman who is kind, caring, considerate and above all sharing, not argumentative or combative, in other words a woman who appreciates the word 'we'. All this is why I do not believe in fate, rather believing that all things in this life are random and haphazard. And so this day, you have stumbled across ‘me’.
I am NOT seeking a carbon copy of 'a love lost'. I desire an original. Be intelligent and independent. Hold and express your true feelings and opinions, finances and politics included.
My preference is that you are younger then me, 5-10 years would be perfect. Please understand that I am attracted only to woman who are tall, slender, athletic, young at heart, a little bit sophisticated and a bit naughty.
Be ready to explore and share an exciting life, filled with endless possibilities, together.
So, as the song lyrics go ".....when you look at me across the crowded room, suddenly all I want to do is be alone with you, do you love me, do you love me that much?....."
I know you are out there.....
