One last tweak to this before my profile goes dark in a couple of weeks...it was nice meeting the few people I did on match but I don't think I'm cut out for online dating, the randomness of it all throws me a bit...that said here's the rest...I'm terrible at making the first move so if I wink, favorite, or just send over a little blurb, don't write it off as lazy, I'm just usually at a loss for words at the beginning. I'm just not much of a conversation starter. Of all my faults and shortcomings, that is definitely the biggest. Shyness is not the easiest trait to overcome. I'm 43 and still shy. Funny because it's not that I lack confidence. I don't really know what it is. Needless to say, once the conversation is started I have no problem keeping it going.
I'm an easy going person for the most part. I have a very strong belief system but I am very tolerant of what other's believe. I teach my children to always give respect, to always strive for other people's respect, and to be gracious to those who have no idea what respect is. Life is far too short to let other people get you down.
Like I said, I'm 43 now, I'd say I feel much younger but that may be a little disingenuous as I have no idea what 43 should feel like. Maybe this is it? What I do know is I don't feel, physically, much different than I did at 30.
The fact is... life is good, I finally feel like everything's finally moving in the right direction. Kids are growing up into fantastic people, some are moving on, work and career is going well. What's missing? A wonderful woman to share it with.
Here's the bottom line... I'm looking for a relationship, not someone to date occasionally, not a pen pal. I'm not a serial dater and not polyamorous. I'm simple. One man for one woman...now it's just a matter of finding her...
I wish you good luck in your search. Best of luck in the coming year. Be well.
