I'm shy and therefore very uncomfortable talking about myself, but here goes:
I am a widower. My wife died in the summer of 2009 after more than 40 years of marriage and a three year battle with cancer. I know what a good relationship is, and how wonderful life can be if you find one. So, knowing that no one can ever “replace” my wife, I’m hoping to find the right woman and another different, but nevertheless special relationship.
I'm an attorney by profession and I litigate complex medical malpractice cases--though I'm trying to slow down and enjoy life without work. I live in Maui, Hawaii for the winter currrently, and in Albany, New York for rest of the time when I'm working . But where I live is definitely subject to change if I meet the right person.
I'm an enthusiastic, but not very proficient surfer by surfing standards. I try to surf almost every day and I have a lot of fun doing it. I'm in shape and most people tell me that I look a lot younger than I am, and I certainly think I act that way. I think that I'm funny. My five year old grandson thinks so too, but my kids just think I’m just stupid.
I'm in the process of writing a legal thriller and I recently wrote a technical book for lawyers. If you have trouble sleeping it's worth reading it--the technical book, not the novel. Hopefully that one's worth reading for non insomniac related reasons. I have two adult kids and one five year old grandson whom I absolutely adore. He lives with my son and his wife in Chicago. My daughter lives in Seattle.
Until my wife died I was phasing out of working and I have plenty of time to do what I want, anyplace I want, but no one to do it with. So, I'm back to working for something to occupy my time–and to help my clients, which in fact is quite fulfilling. I'm giving this site a shot in order to try to get on with my life, and see what happens. Like everyone I have my quirks--well maybe I have more than most--but I’m hoping that I can be lucky enough find the right person for the second time in my life.
I'm the kind of person who, when I saw the question would you consider relocating for the right person, my first thought was, "what a stupid question. Who wouldn't consider relocating for the right person?" Of course I understand that there are family, professional and other reasons that might preclude relocating, but who wouldn't at least consider consider relocating for the right person--or doing almost almost anything else for the right person. To me, that's what people who care for each other do. It's as simple as that.
I know that I can make someone happy, and I’m also sure that the right woman can make me happy too. I'm ready to shower the right woman with love, affection and respect, and live happily ever after with her.
