How are you doing today,Lori ? Wow was the first thing I said when I went through your picture / profile and I wonder why a woman like you is still single. Perhaps, all the men around you are blind (lol). I think we are probably looking for real stuff on here... We can hook up and hopefully, be wonderful soul mates... A little about myself. Hmmm, its no doubt I'm a very nice man and when people meet me, they sense it before long. I love epic movies cos I love adventure, stories of the ancient times and anything related to real life story. Family is what I cherish most in life cos family is it that holds the present, the future and generations to come; blood is certainly thicker than water.
Well, the only thing lacking in my life now is that lovely woman that will follow me to my dream land. I believe 'ONLY THOSE WHO SEEKER, FIND', and that is why I want to get to know you...
Well I hope you haven't lost interest, More of the reason why i writing this short email message
Hoping to get a response soon..Hoping you will get to receive this message
Thanks for the lovely response, Lori.. thanks for the clarification , i am also a widower, didn't know how to put that on my profile as i don't know how people would take that, i believe not all information are meant to be put out there...., Wow, I never believed I could hear from you. You just made my day. I was very intrigued with your profile hence why I had to send that message . I am honored to hear from you. I can't wait to see where this road leads us. I really do not know where to start from but I will try my best to be honest and an open book. Life is to short to be lived in loneliness. We have to appreciate love and we have to go give it all it takes to get to this great status. i have a whole lot to tell you , Actually my mom is actually in England.
Like you already know, my name is Collins R. Matteo , I would be 52 come June, 25 next year. I'm 6.6, average, blue eyes. I have a daughter aged 9 , currently staying with my aged mother. I have a degree in Construction. I'm a contractor/drilling consultant. I deal basically with oil platforms ranging from which has take me to almost all the whole continents in this world, also into interior decors and some art works. Trust me, I can add to your beauty (lol). This and more ..has made me see and explore a lot of culture and it has helped me to be a better man for myself and for people around. I really do enjoy every bit of my career but it can be stressful most times as it sometimes involved been away from my loved ones for a while But really i am hanging the hat this year, i think after getting all the wealth in pursuit
i have come to realize that we are nothing without a partner, someone who would stand by me no matter the situation. A woman who i can say, she alone has the right to be womanly irritating to me,lol. A witch who would protect me like a lioness would do her cub,lol and i can promise to protect her beyond all vices. I have seen faces of women , many of whom have been taken for granted, many of whom are not being reciprocated, but i have come with a good news and a bad news... the good news is i came here to pick my woman to make happy, my eight wonder, my best friend, my copilot, but the bad news is that i have only one woman to do this for.lol.
I saw something in your face, something that made my heart pause to read you, something that tickles in the heart, could that be love at first sight? Maybe we could find that out (lol). I hope we can now have a direct communication via email cos I do not want to go on a dating site ever again. I'm talking about faith here when feelings are so powerful it's as if some force beyond your control is guiding you to someone who can make you happy beyond your wildest dreams. Please do ensure you have a wonderful rest and write me whenever you can. I will be waiting for your email.
Attached is a pic to match this message, Hope it finds pleasure on your lovely face
The hardest thing ever I have noticed in the last few hours is how to tell a total complete stranger about yourself (well you no more a stranger to me). I do not know where to start from. I am comfortable in my own skin. I am not looking for the best woman out there but a woman with a good heart. A woman who is not searching for a perfect because I am not one. I am not the best man out there, but I am a man with a good heart and the ability to maintain a good standing relationship and I strive everyday to be a better person for myself.. I know how to treat a woman right that I am sure. First we can start out as normal acquaintances then see where it leads to. I must say that i feel i can share anything with you already so i am going to let the cat out of the bag.
The email would be an in depth to my whole life and how I have lived. If at my age i do not know what and when to say, then what would i be? When a wise man sees he has probably spent about half of his time in life already, he begins to assess his main goals in life. What could be more important than a happy ending? LOL,. A man needs to live his life full of joy and happiness. No matter his achievements, he is reduced to nothing if he has no crown to complete him and that is a woman to call his own. Wife and Best friend. A woman who knows that even while arguing they still need to hold hands. A woman whom i can call a partner in crime,lol A woman whom you can tell anything. How could you think anything can make you happier in life than finding a love that knows no bound. I am friendly and easy going. I believe in a lot of things and in fate as well. I am searching for a woman of believe and trust. A woman who will love me for who I am and not what I have. I am not seeking a perfect woman because I am not perfect myself but I can recreate things from scratch and the ability to love and be loved again is in me. I believe I can love again. I want to fall in love, but I know it takes time and I am ready!
Let me go ahead and tell you all you need to know about me,
verifying if you still want to continue our lovely conversation. more of which i will repeat. I just hope I will not bore you to sleep with this lengthy email of mine LOL. On the 25th of June, 1966 at exactly 1:15am on Sunday in Naples in the region of Campania in Southern Italy, about 2-hours south of Rome, a star was born(ME). That was the happiest day of my parents life. I am averagely built. and to also verify once again I have a blue eyes. They had been married for 10 years before they had their first and only child, me. Ok i feel like i am writing an autobiography but that's ok. Growing up was pretty fast and exciting, i was handled with so much care and was always made to feel so special and comfortable. We moved about to this countries due to the nature of my late father's work.I was raised with good christian morals which has helped me a whole lot. Mum couldn't have anymore children after me and i had to deal with that.. I couldn't deny i wanted someone to run around the blocks with so i did feel lonely on several occasions. My late father of blessed memory was a German/American from CO and my mother was a British, Italian native, My father was an international business man who met this British orphan whose only family were close friends.. She says there was something about the man that no woman could ever resist, sometimes she says she sees same in me,lol.
I was born into a Catholic family. We attended the second mass every Sunday and always sat on the first bench on the third row. At age 14 i became an alter boy and wanted to become a Priest. It took months before i was convinced to go into college. I didn't do bad in high school(Winston Churchill High School ((Potomac Maryland)) so i had no problems getting into a Uni.During my father's global movement, I went on to study Civil engineering at the University of Naples Federico II where i got the first degree in civil Eng and performed with a band to fund some of my living off campus expenses.I graduated from college at 25,and I felt it wasn't time to take up a job. Dad still earned quite enough to put food on the table for all.. 7 months later, the table is turned...dad got involved in a car accident that claimed his life. That was the saddest moment of my life, it was like my whole life was coming to an end. I felt Naples wasn't the place for me so i came into the UK in 1984. I had a lot of challenges though but i knew i was doing the right thing. Mum being in UK all by herself didn't give me a good feeling but she made sure i made that move..At that time, my English was kinda faulty, People often told me i had a nice accent but i wished i could change.
In 1985 i finally got a good paying job and things started to look good for me. I was well paid and drove a Mercedes...lol. I took care of mum to the best i could, i was a good son. I have very strong character and moral values and i know where my boundaries are. At least people always tell me that. Soon i had enough savings and then i decided to take up my Masters degree in Building engineering and i got a promotion at work...That was one of the happiest days of my life. I have been in several relationship then One day i went shopping and noticed a woman who had too much to carry so i offered a hand. Before i could explain we were madly in love with each other and she was from a good home, we dated for 3 years. In November 1988, we got married in Paris,Italy the marriage produced my best friend (Michelle 8) . About seven years ago She was diagnosed of Ovarian cancer and i stood by her side till her last day. This was a devastating experience for me and my daughter, all thanks to my mother.
I am an independent contractor. I do basically rig constructions and renovations or over water bridges and Buildings. We have worked at many countries across the globe. The present project here is my last on the field and i shall quit field works and continue my works from my home office while my men do the field ops. I think i really have gotten to this height cos i embraced work for so long trying to get over my deceased wife, that i worked this hard, but i think i now realize i can move on. I love the outdoors,I love running – especially on the beach. I like other outdoor sports too, and hitting the gym. I also enjoy going to shows and events – like jazz/ rock concerts, cooking, traveling,or museums and I love the fresh air in the mountains. I am total package and very adventurous. I am always up for anything. My favorite colors are Blue, Black, White and Yellow. I am not choosy when it comes to food but I love keeping it healthy.
I think I have done justice to telling you all you need to know about me.I am fun to be with and I enjoy what live has to offer but I just miss that significant other to share and explore life with. I just want a woman who would be my best friend and everything. You know someone whom we would still love each other more as the days pass by, even when we cant make love anymore and all we could do is play bingo,LOL. I only need someone who understands the value of a good smile. I hope you had a good night rest and i do hope your day will go on well and I await to hear from you soon again!
Hope to hear from you soon..
My mother is over 75 now and she cant wait to have a proper family, and i cant wait to have a happy home too. after my last project here in Istanbul, Turkey. i am quitting field works. Ops! Cant remember if i told you in my last mail, presently i am in Turkey for a contract work but due to be back home in about two weeks and some few days from now. I hope the distance at present doesn't bother you as it doesn't bother me an inch. If we are meant to be, even geography couldn't keep us apart.
