I was raised to respect others and to treat everyone the way you wanted to be treated. This lesson has done me well, I made good choices in th people I've surrounded myself over the years with. I'm a good man with a giving heart. Many times I've done for others before myself. I love being a family man the responsibly that comes with it. With the passing of time my children have grown, a widower and now I only need to take care of myself. I work a lot, but always make time for fun. I miss having someone by my side to enjoy lifes good times and that's why I'm here. It's my nature to give so getting to know me you'll see someone with compassion, sympathy, strong family ties, and old school virtue. I'm low maintance and pleased easily. The woman I would like in my life needs to have a good heart, be secure in her self, smart, good sense of humor, not afraid to get dirty sometimes,flexible when it comes to a change in plans, but most of all honest. I always try to be the best I can be and that's all I'll ask of a partner.
