Maybe i start this way .. ..I am a 55yrs old Man ..Those that dwell in the past are not around me very long, I spot them from miles and run fast.I am very educated, as I am street wise and in tune with my surroundings, making me more often comfortable than anxious. I have spent a lot of time alone for being single for years now..well it so sad coming back home from work and there is nobody home to say welcome ...I think confidence is the greatest asset a person can have, both in themselves and in the environment around them. I like a woman who has achieved self actualization, that is not dwelling on what happened way back when but what could happen today or tomorrow, a respectable woman who is willing to commit to a relationship after we spend time getting to know each other to see if we share enough in common. I don't have any major preference towards race, age or body type....It would be nice to meet someone who is faithful and is looking to meet someone who is faithful.I believe in treating a woman with respect and dignity. I expect the same in return..
