Reading is also a great passion. I keep myself fit and enjoy the gym again.

To my surprise came to meet her in a sex act with her own BOSS in our matrimonial bed .. It was like a shock to me and didn't know what to do .. I then appealed for a divorcement the second day because i couldn't bear the pain she had putting me into, she died two years after our divorce ..... Now i'm willing to meet someone lovely,nice,kind,caring,honest and sincere as my life time companion,I am a romantic, caring woman and would like nothing better than to fall madly and hopelessly in love with me, Looking forward to meeting some serious and ready to start a relationship.....Which could be you...I am currently on Based in Afghanistan and am waiting for my retirement papers so that i can leave here and it can be any moment from now...I have been here for 3years. and that is one main reason why i joined the dating website even though its not safe out here to be using the internet and everything i still had a thought about dating since for a long time now i never went on a date and am about to go on retirement and want to have that special woman in my life so that when i come back on retirement i can be with till the end of the world.

Hi..Good evening my new friend ,
Hope all is well with you ..thanks for your lovely and interesting email can you send me your lovely and beautiful photos shot of words and don't know what to say are a very beautiful and lovely woman and i can't imagine why you are still single..Wow wow i can't wait to meet you in person to look at your lovely and most beautifullest face..good reading from you once again, thank you for your mail which did not say much about you but i do understand and know more about you.. will be glad if you can send me some of your recent pictures and let me have your cell number for easy communication. I will advise you have take out your profile from the dating site, so we can concentrate on each other now, I feel real good checking my mail to read from you again, I am happy you are interested in learning more about me. I am glad to receive a nice letter from you, giving me more of a look into your life, it actually made my day..You sound like all I want, you are my perfect match. I am really going to put a lot of effort into writing this letter to you in hopes it will provide you with a good understanding of who I am, what I am all about, and what has made me the person I am today. The reason I am going to write a letter rather than just send a message is because I am serious about wanting to establish a quality friendship with you and also to the fact that I rarely contact anyone on here, so when I do you can be rest assured I am serious about my intentions.. I have been unable to meet the right woman yet because of my taste. I believe that our faith is the very foundation of our lives, and also of a great relationship that will endure the test of time, I am looking for a woman that will be able to listen to me , communicate her feelings to me , make me laugh, hold and comfort me in need, stand by my side, respect me, passionate lover in every way, support me in every way, love me and only me, protect me when needed, that will be romantic time to time, constantly reactive, and treat me right, I hate cheating/ double dating for that I am a one lady man..I want you to know that the special reason i came on to the internet is to find the special person who deserves all the love and passion that makes up my heart and soul due to the fact that I don't have the time to meet others out in a public setting. I feel you can learn so much about someone through letters because when someone want to read a letter the person has to take his/ her time, think about the words they want to express, so it allows you to gain a better understanding of someone than you would probably do otherwise.. Dear the very reason I am interested in establishing a friendship with you is because I feel I have a lot to offer you in the way of a friendship and I know I have a lot to share with you that will be of interest to you and even some things that will surprise you. I am very unique in today's society because I live my life through my spirituality and through the word of God because I have such a strong understanding of what I feel my role in life is suppose to be. I am a man of integrity and my word is my honor.. I have very high standards for myself and my life is all about providing love, peace and happiness to others. For you to get a better understanding of me picture a waterfall in your mind and instead of all the water overflowing it is all the love and passion I have in my heart to give to the one who deserves it, as the love and passion has an endless flow coming out of my heart. Where others write many people and keep their messages short because they are all about how many they can write, I am the opposite and very selective in whom I choose to write and I like to give them my very best even if it is in a long letter such as this. I know the type of person who I want to build a relationship with so I am willing to put the time and effort in my messages to show that to you...Can you try all your best and create skype account so that we can always chat there because am not allowed to be on facebook as am here am going to be in a serious problem if they find out that am using it ...Take very good care of yourself and also many kisses and hugs to you..hoping to hear from you soon..

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jer 29:11 (NIV). Warmest thoughts my new friend ,

Letter 3

Good Morning Dear ,
how are you doing and how was your night….Well i just wake up and decided to send you email to know how you are doing …..Well i want you to know that my desire is to meet a respectful, sensitive, sensuous, warm, assertive single woman who wants a friend. My interpretation of a friend is one to whom you can pour out all the contents of your heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that the punctuality of hands will take it all, sift it, keep that which is worth keeping and, with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away. I thank you in advance for allowing me to be that kind of friend to you.
I am looking for a special, loving relationship with a unique woman who is affectionate,humble, with a shapely figure, sincere, easygoing, with interests and characteristics similar to mine...someone who wants a meaningful, serious, long-term relationship...not just a few dates. Are you that special woman?
I am looking for someone who has a great sense of humor and big heart, is curious about new things that would like to share new experiences or old habits.
I am looking for someone who believes that a true intimate partner looks out for the other and vice avers. While navigating life together, we are caring and concerned for each others well-being because we make each other so happy and we love each other very much.
Looking for a serious long term relationship with someone who possesses strong character and is goal-oriented…She must love the Lord with all of his heart,then I know he will love me with all his heart.
love to laugh, and be a hopeless romantic.So that would make her a God-loving romantic lady......and God will approve..... if you enjoy a good book, walks , watch what you put into your "temple"....just love praising God, can dance even a little.....
But I also want to be in a relationship where I can totally trust the other person and not dwell on how the relationship is NOT working...
As far as an ideal partner, i don't have a type....charisma, humor and charm come in many packages.....I care about honesty, integrity & sincerity you know the basics....Those who know its impossible to walk a righteous path and do right by everybody,.....
but at least still try(emphasis on strong effort)....i am attracted to overtly passionate mature people who are totally comfortable in their own skin,..who know who they are(the good and the bad)and recognize their flaws, yet are unashamed (and not afraid to show) of the quirky, sometimes contradictory, eccentric aspects of their personality that define their individuality.....
When you are genuine and sincere, people may not always love you.....but they usually respect you (at least that's been my experience).....I am interested in forming a positive, healthy and enjoyable friendship with a quality person(s).With regards to a relationships, i now want more from life than family and friends can offer. Meaning i would like to meet the type of WOMAN that really would enjoy sensually charged chemistry, laughter and uncomplicated real time meet and greets....
Someone who is highly affectionate, passionate, loving, considerate and is happy with himself just the way he is today right now. While i too am highly passionate i am not interested in just mere sex alone, Additionally, I believe in and would like to continue learning to create and savor the simple pleasures in life, such as womanhood and learning more about myself as an individual...appreciating those often brief and fleeting moments of beauty & perfection (and not so perfect) for what they are.......nothing more nothing less.
Lets communicate, I promise i will be a man and warm(with a bit of excitability at times as i am very high spirited and a bit humorous).I will approach you with hope, and an open dialogue to include a positive and productive goal with a genuine concern for the future of a healthy relationship(friend or otherwise).I will now end here and wish to hear from you soon ,
Kisses and hugs from me to you

Good Evening Dear Anneli ,
Thanks for your email ,I am really happy that i have you now in my life ….I would really like to get to know you more and see what will happen next between us but please can you try and get Skype account so that we can always talk over there because it’s the easiest and safe okay …..Well there’s little i would love you to know about me …..You look nice and thanks for the pictures ....I am very pleased!!!
I love poetry, books, walks on the beach and cozy candlelight dinners. I enjoy movies, television, music, traveling, the desert, the quietness of the mountains, the ocean, sunrises and sunsets.
I am comfortable in jeans or a nice English suit. A nonsmoker/drinker, not into drugs (don't need them; I live in a natural high). I believe in enjoying the good life and am high on it. I have a healthy attitude about God and the Bible.
I'm a very outgoing person, who loves to dine out travel and enjoy the simple life. I'm a hopeless romantic and very affectionate. I have a good sense of humor and I like to make you laugh.
I like to chill out with a good book or watch and movie and its even more fun when you have a special someone to do this with. I'm very easy to get a long with and a very good listener......
I am an honest heart that's looking for a stable relationship. I understand it is important to lay down lasting foundations for a lasting relationship. I am an active person who enjoys cycling and running best. I believe keeping fit is important. I am not interested in games or dramaI enjoy fine dining and am always looking for someone to share the appreciation of good food and fine wine. I am just as comfortable with old jeans as and swimming as well…
I like getting out and checking out local talent and live concerts, here or anywhere. I enjoy movies and music for relaxation. A quiet night at home is also enjoyed and welcomed. I am open to try different activities and up for the challenge.I love spontaneity and being a bit impulsive. I am continually attempting to function from the inside out and to go with my intuitive impulses, because sometimes the spontaneous actions are the most fun, not expected and purely delightful.
I generally try to live a some what healthy lifestyle, exercising and some sort of jogging, 3-4 days a week and eating healthy, (trust me, I love sweets and pastries, but try not to over do it).
I would also like to find a like-minded female where we can participate in activities together and encourage each other to pursue their interests as well.I have several hobbies (and wish I could find more time to pursue those) such as swimming, playing computer, dancing, and reading, and more,and would like someone to share that with, as well as their sharing their interests with me...
I do not expect a woman to be a servant to me, spending all his time working and and cleaning; I believe there is give and take in a relationship, and I realize that at times it's more convenient for me to do laundry, cook, clean, and I have no problem doing that.I consider myself to be a fairly honest and truthful person and expect the same in return; I'm not wealthy and don't expect someone to attempt to deceive me or "play" me.I believe that time spent apart helps keep things fresh in a relationship and makes the time we do spend together even better. I'm not one who cheats in a relationship; one woman is enough trouble ; I don't have the time or energy to juggle 2, 3, or 4 at the same time - haha.
I am generally an optimistic person with a sense of humor, fairly easy-going, and I don't think that I'm too critical about things, but I also believe that it takes two people contributing to a relationship to make it work.As I mentioned earlier, I like to do things with the other significant person in my life, but I also encourage her to go out and spend time with friends and pursue her own interests and hobbies as well.
As you can tell, I am not a buster and believe in total communication....
Not that we can do that all the time, but ultimately we can get the feelings out without too much delay, I hope. I believe in getting to know my partner and communication seems to be the best way to do this. I am adventurous. love to see new places and experience new things.I will always have the little kid in me ,even though I am very responsible !! love to play,I am on the computer getting into it more and more!!! dancing is important to me I want soo badly to get better at it !!! Please try and get Skype account so that we can talk okay …
I will now end here and wish to hear from you soon ,Kisses and hugs

I awoke to see you laying there and just then, you smiled and said hi and that just melted me. I wish with all of my heart that I could wake to your beautiful eyes for the rest of my life. I hated to leave but as I have told you, I left a big part of me with you. It is yours now so, take care and tread lightly. I wish that I could be with you now as you face so many struggles, but know that I am there in spirit and am praying for everything to work out for you. No matter where this life takes us, together or not, know that you and your girls will always be in my heart and "my favorite." Thinking of You always, Richard

Letter 10

Hello my Dear,
I hope you are doing well and also have slept well for me as i did...I am in the office now working on some files and documents and i thank you so much for your emails once again for letting me know more about you and your past too.....I am missing and thinking of you my dear and you have been on my mind and thoughts all this while my dear and my feelings for seems to be stronger as i just cannot stop thinking of you and being together with you..I think we have told each other more about ourselves and its been such a great pleasure to share a lot with you this way , I really appreciate it. It seems like we have a lot in common and looking for the same in a relationship...LOL You're such a great and a nice woman and I really admire that.
Although we've never met, I feel as if I know you well. I knew from the start that there was something special about you; you've touched my heart and wouldn't let go.I'm pretty much a trusting person, for the most part, however, I have found myself to have people abuse that and make a fool of me... However, I believe each person deserves their own chance and don't judge anyone... In fact, I try to keep an open mind with everyone... At least as much as a human being can... I believe in ROMANCE! I love romance and being romantic, I’m a “true romantic,” I love to hold my woman’s face and her hands when kisses her (just like in the movies), holding hands, snuggling on a rainy day, writing a message on the bathroom mirror when it’s all steamed up from a hot shower, or a text message just to say “hello, I was thinking about you”, and candlelight bubble baths with Nora Jones playing on the radio. I enjoy pampering my woman (when I have one that is)... I tend to be silly, but when needed, I do have a serious side.I do have one son,which i have told you earlier ,who mean the world to me and have been my focus since I lost his mom... I do not seek a replacement mother for my son... Rather, I seek one amazing woman who not only accepts my relationship with my son but won't feel threatened by nor jealous of this relationship and who can meld seamlessly into our family unit..
The reality is that I truly do seek a lasting relationship... For this to happen we should be compatible, emotionally, intellectually, socially, spiritually, physically (call me shallow but looks do matter) and, yes, sexually... Even with all this, love must exist and there must be that ever-elusive "spark...” In essence, I seek the proverbial "Total Package...” Rather than "settling" for someone I could be happy with, I seek someone I cannot imagine living without (a subtle yet important distinction) for a lifetime together filled with passion (both in and outside the bedroom), intensity and bliss..I guess I'm looking for a woman who can love me as I am (good, bad or ugly)... Someone who can relate about life and its ups and downs and will want to share them... I want my partner to be able to work together to obtain goals that we've both set... I'd like us to be able to grow as individuals as well as a couple... I'd want our relationship to be secure so that we could feel comfortable and trust each other completely without question!
I would want to be her everything and she mine... I want the WHOLE package... A friendship that grows into the ultimate loving/caring/passionate relationship that one only dreams of... I don't want to just live with someone; I want someone I can't imagine living without... I hope that makes sense... I guess I'm searching for my missing piece to my puzzle....I am at a great place in my life now and want to share it with a partner on all levels.. I agree there must be a physical attraction as well... I always say that it's what on the inside that counts and that always makes a person attractive on the outside as well... I want to be with someone that I miss when we are not together and I can feel the electricity running through body when we touch... Someone who likes to cuddle (I know this probably sounds corny), hold hands, hug, kiss for no reason, I want to be the couple when were 80 walking down the street and holding hands... I just love that when I see it... Like you I just won't settle...
I do not have a particular physical "type" that appeals to me... Rather, I tend to look at the entire package, especially personality... I am not the jealous type by any means... I believe that in a relationship you have to be a family regardless if the children are not biologically yours a family is a family no matter what! I would never try to be a replacement father it just can't be done, but to be there for that child and support them and be a part of their life is an important thing!...I hope that I haven't bore you with all this information... I do know what I want... I did not date for some years after my wife's death all because I wanted to make sure that I knew what I want and that I was in a good place in my life and ready to share it with a partner.. I am at that place! ... LOL... on a more serious side, I am not about having sex with just anyone... I must have feelings for the person and she for me... There must be that deep seeded trust before it would move to the sexual phase... There are just too many diseases out there and to be honest, I've seen what they can do to a life if you're careless sexually... I wouldn't want that for anyone I know or care about... Don't get me wrong though, if the relationship were to get to that phase, I am completely into pleasing my woman.... COMPLETELY!.....
Kindly take care for me as i end here and continue with my work and hope we pleasurably chat later, .smile..Kisses and sweet hugs..
