I don't any longer want to put ideal expectations on a woman. I'd like to relax. Enjoy what is here now. Longing for what is not present is not the way I'd like to live. Let's enjoy some time together. Watching my children become adults, my parents fading, it dawns on me that it is the perfect time to stop. Stop the patterns, the chronic dissatisfaction, the grass is greener thinking, it is all good, right now. I have been happy and enjoyed life alone. I have also been happy and enjoyed life with a woman. With a woman is BETTER!
PS: I am a relationship guy. I am not in a hurry. I will ask for one special quality--honesty. If, in a relationship, you've lied, cheated, or lacked the ability to let go of ex's, and/or found yourself disappearing on a partner, please have the grace to pass me by!
