OK. This is new to me. I have become considerably more thoughtful, sensitive, and willing to show my emotions the older I get. I'm a pretty basic, down to earth kind of guy. I've faced a lot of adversity in my life, but, have managed to overcome all of it one way or another. I've always been considered very resilient. Whenever I get knocked down, I pick myself up, brush myself off, and, hit it again.
Although I'm retired, I still keep pretty busy sitting on the Board of Directors of two non-profit humanitarian foundations. I work with people from all over the world and will begin some extensive traveling around the world this year.
I'm a huge MN Vikings fan. That's about the only thing I'm fanatic about. Otherwise, I enjoy simply hanging out, going to movies, the occasional concert, checking out new stuff on the weekends, weekend trips, and open to just about anything else. I do not sit around reading too much. I do watch some TV, but if you have something better to do, I'm game.
Most of all, I would just like to meet someone with like interests and someone to share some of life's moments. This is a little scary for me--meeting someone new. I have basically only had two serious relationships in my life--one for 22 years and another for 13 years. I gave each one of them everything I had until I had nothing more to give--literally and figuratively. I'm monogamous, so I need someone who will be patient with me and be willing to allow a relationship to grow and evolve, but not at the speed of light. I would like to have someone I can talk to about anything, and, share their trials and tribulations and offer them support, too.
Is there really anybody out there like that? I'm financially independent. I am a gentleman, considerate, generous, kind, humorous, polite, and probably some other stuff, too. But, this is hard telling someone you absolutely do not know how wonderful you are (LOL!). Feels weird.
OK. How about you? Tell me a lot about you and what you like doing and what it is you're looking for.
