Jane, Here is little about me I was born in Rome Italy, grew up and attended college in Shanghai China due to my Dad's job, He used to work as a book-keeper and dispatcher for a big Chinese trucking company so we had all lived there until we returned to Rome Italy after his retirement until his death in 2001. I lost my two brothers to an auto crash way back in Napoli city 2 years later, (2003) precisely. And mom is a certified massage therapist now living in Rome Italy, which is her hometown.
I had moved from there to this area with my family after the loss. Dad was very a caring father to me, He had always made me to be happy and also let me realize that the only thing we gain most in life is how much happy we are when we are living in the world, And also he made me understand that every single day we live either happy or not happy is a day we can never get back in life. The world makes for a cold place without family around. I'm a very happy and honest person, when asked or when the situation calls for it, I tell people how I feel and share my opinion. Not forcefully, but with love and helpful intentions. I am a passionate, sensuous person. I love deeply and widely. A people's please, always have been and probably always will be. I tend to give more than I get and give away more than I keep.
Bottom line here is through friendship. I am eventually looking for someone to love and who will love me. I want to make someone happy and hopefully in return will be made happy. Make someone feel special and be made to feel the same. Take care of and be taken care of. I think I'm good at what I do, because as I said I live my life to love, and to please. I'm not even talking about anything too grand, but when I rub someone's back for hours on end (and love doing so) would hope to occasionally get a back rub myself. I'm using this as an example because as much as I love giving back rubs really don't care if I get one in return, but hoping this will help you to understand what I mean.
I have a grandson name Tom, his 22 months old very soon he will be 2 years old I really love him so much not because he is my grandson, I love all young age cause I believe they are the futures of our tomorrow hope you understand what am trying to say about the young ages. I put a lot of energy into parenting in hopes to create a stable, respectable, loving adult someday. Love and laughter is what life is all about to me, and am trying to instill this into my grandson I was married for 34 years with so much LOVE and Harmony before God decide to take my wife and daughter. I can't help but cry have accept my faith I really love them so much but God love them more than I do, I enjoyed being married and want that again. I need a woman who is considerate, kind, respectful, loyal, honest, and passionate. One who is slow to anger and is willing to communicate her feelings, ideas, and opinions. A partner to share my day and life with, through the good and the bad. Someone to snuggle with, eat pizza with, work in the yard with, go shopping, the movies, out to dinner, vacation you name it.
I am not a worrier or a dweller. I realize what I can and cannot change and if it is important enough to me, I change it. As for my goals I’ve pretty much succeeded at most things in life. Yet I yearn for someone special to share it with. I'm easygoing, good tempered, I'm not a bar type. I don't smoke and I drink a glass of red wine or mead (honey wine) in the evening sometimes. Career-wise, I'm a self employed general sub-mini contractor working from home, and my job involves sales and marketing, imports and exports of goods and services for individuals and firms all over the world, ranging from Air conditioners to Refrigerators and other electrical appliances, and I deal under contracts. I have been lucky to have traveled to many countries due to my job. It's something I enjoy doing because I'm very active in the advancement of my career and myself as a person.
Right now, I have been processing a job opportunity over a year now with The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and after this am going to retire and settle down. Hopefully, with my partner. I don't know if you have heard of the group (UNDP) before but they are a part of the UN and are all about poverty alleviation. Also, they are advocating for change and connect countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. So I am in connection with them for distribution proposal.
I dislike having to resort to these dating sites, but feel right now in this day and age it's probably the only way to go. I can't seem to get into the bar scene anymore unless of course it's WITH a date. I hate sharing all about me, myself and I to the world, which is why I am not sharing everything online but only with a specific few. Ideally I would like to get to know someone through emails and phone conversations, so I could feel comfortable and as if I know them before I actually meet them. In all honesty, I am frightened to be with a stranger. I am a good person, who tends to live with what I like to think are decent morals and high standards and almost always by the rules. I give respect in hopes to receive respect.
Am 5ft: 7inch light brown hairs and blue eyes...I am extraordinarily unique but with some average facets. I am a hopeless romantic. Not sure about "love at first sight", but I believe in instinctive reactions to first meetings, I would enjoy watching while cuddled up on a couch with someone (especially if a cracking fire could be included). I am sensitive, sentimental, compassionate, and caring, and can be moved to tears by something highly emotional. Life has thought me some hard lesson. Take the knowledge and wisdom I've gained and combine them with my personal qualities, and you have somebody who will someday be the best thing that ever happened to someone. The one who gains my affection will find me loyal, sincere and honest.
Honesty is something I value highly, and when I have met people this way before, things have not gone beyond the first meeting if they turn out to have misrepresented them self in any way. I am here to broaden my opportunities to meet someone, but at the same time I am very content with where my life is now. I am not troubled by my past life. I hope to be in a good relationship would be icing on the cake.... I love easy-going, pacific and quiet people who are not full of themselves. I even like people who Are a bit clumsy and unsure... it reveals a genuine human side. I believe that perfection does not exist and I am not expecting it.
Life has toughen me a little and made me realize the importance of the essential and simple things in this life. I am a bit on the marginal side with my own different idealistic and romantic views and beliefs about this life, this world. My soul sees the world the way it could be, the way it should be (equal & fair) so it makes it hard to keep faith in better days...I am not a pessimist, just an idealist who is being misunderstood. I believe in love, peace, harmony, tolerance, kindness, humility, understanding, fairness, justice, equality for all mankind but I am afraid I won't witness that in my lifetime. My eyes are open and they don't always like what they see. I am an observer, philosopher, dreamer, lover whose heart is broken on a daily basis by all the worries, struggle, violence, corruption, greed, hostility, hate, injustices, destruction, indifference...
I get along fine in any social settings but since I am shy and tend to be uncomfortable around most people, I tend to prefer the comfort of my own little space where I evolve freely and don't have to prove myself to people who are usually judgmental and who don't really care. I am getting tired of trying to "fit in". What I like: * Nature (explore National Parks, Beaches, Conservation areas, Lakes, etc..) * Walking, biking, hiking, swimming, camping, canoeing, etc. * Country drives *Photography (amateur) * Movies * Music *Browsing the World Wide Web (searching interesting and educational information) * Flea Markets. I have the following interests.... playing cards, going for walks, spending quiet time at home and also fishing and camping. I am an honest, trustworthy and kindhearted person and looking for someone that has the same values. I believe to build a relationship it takes a lot of work and I believe you cannot do that seeing someone just once or twice a week and I like to spend a lot of time with the special person in my life I do not play games and I am looking for someone with the same values and goals as myself. I have a saying and that is....
Life Is What You Make Of It. I will give it a shot! I am genius, passionate person, who tends to wear his heart on his sleeve .I am romantic at heart, I believe that it is possible to have strong believes, and stay to true to yourself and still have fun and live life. I try to live my life being the best "me" I can be, improving as I go. I thing one of the biggest gifts we are giving besides life itself is the gift of love and laughter and the biggest blessing we can find is someone who we can share our dreams with as friends, lovers, and partner in life together, Here are some of me and my grandson pictures let me know what you think about it. I will be looking forward to hear from you soonest. Peace Steven
