Love is the master key that opens the gates of happiness. Love is everything its cracked up to be. That's why people are so cynical about it...It really is worth fighting for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don't risk everything, you risk even more. To be in love is merely to be in a state of perceptual anesthesia. I am a romantic, caring, understanding and loving man who is honest, kind and a very good listener. I love to play golf, basketball. I love traveling and making new friends but I do not allow the issue of race difference to stop me from making friends. To love someone is to understand each other, to laugh together, to smile with your heart and to trust one another. One important thing is to let each other go if you cant do this. Some say love is life, but love without hope and faith is an agonizing death. I am a Scotter and I also paint in my free time and I love my job a lot. I live with my daughter. The only thing missing in my life is a woman who truly is worthy of my love. True love demands sacrifice that can’t be found in being self-centered and I am willing to make that sacrifice.She must have what I call the 3 S's and the 2 I's. Am looking for someone who is Honest, Likes to have fun, Caring, likes surprises, someone who don't mind age, straight forward.. practical safe jokes, Doesn't mind holding hands or walking arm-in-arm in public, Be considerate of others, and knows when to hold and re-assure their mate. someone who doesn't think age could be a stop to a relationship as long as she is still agile and ready to give what a man would want.. got it? These are some of the traits that I have and would like to find someone with the same traits. I firmly believe that in order to a lasting relationship, two people must first become friends. There should not be a one way street between them. A relationship is always a two way agreement.And am looking for someone who enjoys similar things, but who can also introduce me to new things. I'm looking for someone who is honest, fun loving, determined, and romantic. Someone who will make me feel like I'm the only one for them. Good communicator, good listener, and someone willing to give 110% to a 50/50 relationship. I want someone who respects me, someone who likes me for who I am and isn't trying to make me into what they want.. I want someone who is secure with themselves but is willing to make changes as needed, life is a learning process that never stops. I want someone that aids my growth as a person, not someone that aids me in staying the way I am.
