Someone Somewhere In Summertime...
Let me start off by telling you that I, at 45 years of age live at home with my Mum. I read a lot of 'family is important' on your profiles. My Dad got Alzheimer's Disease. I had to move back home. He would wander off and get lost. He died four years ago...I am still here for her. I enjoy keeping the house and garden looking good for her. Who else is going to do it? I don't particularly like certain aspects of it. It is very difficult to put this up here knowing so many of you will read this, groan,judge and move on. So be it. Move on and good luck.
I am mistakenly labelled as stuck up or a snob when I am not. It's just the way I look or appear to others who don't know me. I am intuitive,quiet,shy,introspective and was born that way. I am sensitive,gentle,perceptive,well mannered and know how to use a knife and fork with grace in public settings. I have vivid dreams. Lucid dreams where I am able to fly. When I awake from these dreams I ponder life,the universe and everything. One of my earliest memories I have is waking up at 3 years old and standing up on my bed with my chin on the window sill. I looked out the window to the East to see a perfect orange globe that had just rose above the horizon. I was 3 years old and asking....What is it all about?
I am affectionate,passionate and active. I am not a player or a guy who heads to bars looking for a 1 night stand. I love to laugh. I grew up watching Monty Python. I like Seinfeld too. I like to watch doc's,dramas and period pieces on PBS,TVOntario and old movies on TMN. My recent love is skiing. I have just learned. Last year I dislocated my shoulder doing it but that didn't stop me from going back. This past season was my first with all my own gear. I don't know how many runs I made at Blue Mountain where upon reaching the bottom of the hill I would be pumped with happiness only to look around wishing I had someone to share it with. I really love it. I am going to Whistler next year. In the future, Austria or Swiss Alps. I even enjoy shovelling the driveway. There is an art to it. The Arts! I like music that takes me somewhere..forward or backward in time...Listening to Last Temptation of Christ soundtrack while driving thru rainy Scottish Highlands or Eno while walking in London for example. I want to visit Chicago and New York one day. I want to see Frank Lloyd Wright's Falling Water.
I have been single since 2005. At first I was busy with work and getting used to the single life. In time I began to wonder when I would meet someone and where. I would be at the gas station,supermarket,library,golf course,pub,walking the dog,out for a rollerblade looking to catch your eye. It was never happening. There's no lack of unhappy married people and others who are spoken for. Not interested in that. It was easier meeting singles in my 30's that's for sure. I found myself considering a Internet dating site. I joined that other free dating site I was told about. I deleted my profile after about 3 days. So I patiently waited. 2, 3 more years go by....Waiting...for....fate. OK. Waiting is over. I joined 1 Month ago. (March '13) Since then I have had a few email exchanges that went on for a couple of weeks that abruptly stopped for whatever reason. Text exchanges that also stopped abruptly for whatever reason. I have asked to meet 'too soon'...Haven't asked soon enough...I'm not really interested in carrying on with long exchanges...So If I get a wink, I will wait a day before responding.
You? Calm,Kind,Active,Honest. Not afraid to get your hair wet. ; )
