How to describe myself? Well, the first thing I should mention is my sense of humour, which can be rather dry or quirky. I feel that a good sense of humour is important, that the ability to laugh at life (or oneself) is an important survival skill and coping strategy.
The next thing I would share is my love of music. It sounds like a cliche, but music is the soundtrack to our lives. When it comes to listening to music I have very eclectic tastes: classic rock, metal, folk, classical, CW, and more, as long as it is good music. I'm equally happy listening to Jimmy Buffet or Van Halen, Johnny Cash or Queen, etc. This is the music with which I entertain myself. Beyond this, my real love of music is for the music I play; Celtic music. I am a piper and also have been known to play a tune or three on the Irish Whistle or beat time on a bodhran. (I also enjoy singing; however my singing ability is best described as enthusiastic) I still have all of my teeth, some of my hair, and most of my marbles. Oh, and I give good foot rubs.
I've known love, known the joy of sharing life's journey with my best friend and soul mate, and known the pain and heartache when she was taken from me by fate. I don't know if we're entitled to more than one great love in life. Can lightning strike the same place twice? Same heart?
Enough about me; what about you? You are a lady who appreciates being treated as such, not a princess who demands it. You have a ready sense of humour and get a glint of mischief in your eye. You are tender, affectionate at home and comfortable with displays of affection in public. You appreciate going out with friends or just us two, but you are equally happy snuggling together by the fire. Neither of us is a kid anymore, but you remain young at heart. You are comfortable in jeans but also like dressing up on occasion. You challenge me to be more, to do things I might not think of myself, just as I will bring experiences you may not have though of (the bagpipes, for example). In a great relationship the whole should be more than the sum of its parts.
I'm looking for someone with whom I can share the next part of life's journey, someone to whom I can point out the funny bits along the way, watch a few sunsets, and enjoy the music of life. Be warned, bagpipes will be played.
