I work as an Operation manager for a Cargo shipping company. I have been with the company for 12 years as the director of operations. I enjoy my job though risky because we are always at sea.
I lost my wife in a car wreck five years ago. I have one handsome boy, his name is Morris and he is 10 years old now. I'm 5`11" 190 lbs with an athletic build.

I am really interested in knowing more about you, your background, your life experiences, past relationships, your goals and dreams, your interests, and anything else you want to tell me.

This friendship I want to build with you will be filled with substance, quality, love and faithfulness. Hope I didn't write much of a novel.............lol.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Until then have a pleasant day
Glad to read your email and thanks for your sincerity. I want to let you know that we did not meet by accident, but rather the will of God and am very sure God has a purpose of bringing both of us together. I am confident you are in good health. Honestly, there is so much I want to tell you and so many things I want to ask you, I don't know where to start. I am new at this online relationship thing so please understand if I am a little awkward at it. I am writing this message to you not for the fun of it, but because I want you to take some time and read it carefully.
Let me start by saying that I thank God for meeting you. As you may have known, the fountain of any relationship must spring up in the heart. It is very important for me to express to you how much you really mean to me because we are both grown ups and we want and need the same thing. I wish I could do this in person while looking into your eyes, but since we are physically separated by miles of emptiness, this expression must come in the form of letters such as this.
To me, you are first of all my friend and then...... something more greater in the near future..... God willing. To be honest with you, I am really short of words here, but one thing I do know is that I have the arms to give you a hug, ears to listen to whatever you want to talk about through chat, mail or phone, and I have a heart; a heart that is aching to see your smile and see you not miss anything like physical companionship and the sort. I would like to use this opportunity to say...I am delighted to have met you.
I know you will be thinking about the distance between us, Distance doesn't permit the action to be seen, rather, words convey the feelings when distance hinders. No matter the distance that separates us now, I can assure you that this gap will be bridged as we really get to know each other. As the saying goes: "True Love and Friendship knows no boundaries and no distance; miles and obstacles mean absolutely nothing in the face of friendship and love" Though miles may lie between us right now, we'll never be apart forever, for friendship doesn't count the miles, it's measured by the heart.
I just want us to start as friends and see what we can come up with, I sure hope you understand that me not being with you does not take the thoughts of you from my heart. We all have to put food on the table. I am grateful and I wish us a happy and prosperous New beginning. Here are some of my pics and I do hope you will like them and do send yours if possible. As I write to you now, my job is taking me to Australia (Sailing for a month....)and I would really like us to chat and get to know each other better but if time cannot permit us, I am sure we'll continue to communicate with emails
I sure hope to hear from you again. Have a nice day Big hug
No i don't speak turkish but i understand the language
By the way how do you always spend your day and what do you do with your free time? what is your favorite color? If I were to visit you where do you think we would have our first conversation? where do you think you would be in ten years time? what are you holding on to? where is your favorite vacation spot? do you read books and what kind of books do you read? have you ever had a romantic moment on a boat having a glass of wine on a table for 2? can you tell me about your childhood while growing up? forgive my manners if I bored you with all this questions. I just want to know you the best way a man should know a woman.
My favorite color ? I am a 'Yellow' person. I don't know if you've ever read "The Color Code" by Dr Taylor Hartman. He talks about how everyone has a different personality, that being red, blue, white or yellow. It's very interesting reading if you every get a chance.
Let me tell you more about a Yellow personality and then you'll know exactly how I think.......
Yellow ? Yellow symbolizes wisdom. Yellow means joy and happiness. People of high intellect favor yellow. Yellow daffodils are a symbol of unrequited love. Sunday's color is yellow-gold.
The color yellow represents happiness and fun. The traditional yellow color meaning is that of inspiration. The meaning of yellow is also associated with vitality, energy and illumination.
Yellow is associated with the expression of thoughts and the intellectual side of the mind. It can therefore aid the powers of memory and clear thinking, decision-making and good judgment.
Yellow is such a joyous and happy color and can make you feel instantly cheerier. It is very uplifting and can stimulate the mind and intellect. Students would do well to include more of this color around them to help them study. Yellow is also good for anyone who suffers from low moods and depressive states because of its uplifting qualities.
Yellow can stimulate new ideas, creativity and clear thinking. However too much yellow can over stimulate the brain and lead to hyperactivity and anxiety. It is not a good idea to decorate a nursery or children's bedroom in yellow as the color is too active and will cause children restlessness. Older people do not like too much yellow either as the fast paced, active color is often too much for them..
If you were to visit me our first conversation would be having a nice dinner in a quiet secluded part of a restaurant would also be a good place. With nice romantic music playing in the background to set the ambiance... I'm a hopeless romantic. HOPELESS..........
In ten years time, I see myself happy. even happier than now, in love, traveling the world, giving back to less fortunate maybe start a non profit school
I'm holding on to my dream of finding my true soul mate. I believe there is definitely someone special out there for me. Someone who will make me feel like a prince. Someone who will love me for who I am and accept me as I am. Someone who will make me feel as if I mean everything to them and that they could not live without me. But most of all someone I can trust and know that She respects me for being a Son of God.
My favorite vacation spot; I love the coast, I think maybe even more I love being close to a lake, surrounded by mountains and beautiful forests...If I chose a country. My dream is to see Moscow, specifically the red square and Switzerland.
I read mainly self-help books. Anything that can help me become a stronger person and improve who I am. I also love reading sci-fi type books. I've just read the 'Twilight Saga" and love every minute of it.
Firstly I don't drink an alcohol or smoke. I never have. So we had our non-alcoholic champagne instead, but yes, had a spectacular sunset cruise and ended up doing more than what we should have done on the boat. But it was a great memory. Those were my wild days...
What are you fondest memories? How do you spend Christmas? How many members in your family? Do you have a close family? What are your dreams and goals for the future? What do you know of in your country ? Have you ever been to any other country ? If you could choose to have dinner with one person, living or someone that has passed on, famous or not so famous, who would it be and why? How do you like to sleep? Do you like personal contact? Do you enjoy being round people or rather to spend time on your own?
I will only talk about two of my fondest memories...I was on a vacation in Scotland precisely mall and Iona where I met Mr and Mr Clayton, it was the best vacation ever. we were having dinner on a cool Saturday evening and Mr Clayton noticed that somebody was looking at us for a very long time and he said Gregory do you know that beautiful lady staring at us? why don't you invite her over to join us? And I turned around,I couldn't get my eyes of her.it was like what happen in a movie. so beautiful and so real behold that was my wife, that is how we met. my second fondest memories was the day she had my boy, I was the happiest person in the world.
We were only two in the family I and my elder Sister but she gave to ghost last Dec. I thought I told you this before, most of my family are in distance but my closest amongst my Uncle was Uncle Alvisio who died 2 years ago. My dreams and goal; traveling the world, giving back to less fortunate maybe start a non profit school, have a sweet home and happy family....Have never been to your country and do not know much about the country but looking forward to visit you soon.
If I could choose to have dinner with one person, living or someone that has passed on, famous or not so famous, who would it be and why? That person would have be Martin Luther of Germany, He strongly disputed the claim that freedom from God's punishment for sin could be purchased with money. He further says "salvation is not earned by good deeds but received only as a free gift of God's grace through faith in Jesus Christ as redeemer from sin" His theology challenged the authority of the Pope of the Roman Catholic Church by teaching that the Bible is the only source of divinely revealed knowledge.
How do I like to sleep? I like to sleep on the right side of the bed and if am sleeping with my partner I do like her to be very close to me...Do I enjoy being round people? I am an introvert as well as extrovert.....well what do I prefer in a woman; It does matter how you look like, long hair or short hair, make up or no make up..it does it matter, all that matter is the love that bond us together, if I love you what ever you do will always look beautiful, however I just like my woman to look nice. am I enjoy being around people when I'm at a party or something like that, but I also love having alone time. I think I've learnt to be happy within myself and that has made the difference. also a long story, I'll share with you someday.
I love, love, love Christmas. I'm like a real kids when it comes to Christmas. I usually have the decorations up by November ending, just after my son's birthday and I play Christmas music where ever and when ever I can. it's just such a magical time of the year. I like to remember "Christ" in "CHRISTmas". I usually have a spring cleaning where my late wife, I go through all the unused toys, or clothes that we haven't worn in a while, and we get them together and take them to a children's home. It's also a great teaching experience and reminds us of the blessings we have in our lives.
Are you a loyal person? Do you have a temper? Are you possessive? How do you like to celebrate your birthday?
Why is it that people over complicate things which should be so simple? Like love and relationships. Why do men and women always seem to play "power" games with each other?..........What religion do you belong to? Are you an open minded person? What are your beliefs and view on marriage?
I am a very loyal person with no hang-ups. I think everybody has a temper in certain circumstances, but overall I am a placid person. In a certain manner I could be possessive but not in a bad way. I do not like people interfering in a friendship/relationship that I hold dearly that is when I could become possessive. I am also not a jealous person, because jealousy is hurtfull feeling. Power games are played by men and women who are not very comfortable in their friendships/relationships, that is when they start with things like "if you do that/or if you speak to that person then it is ........, I don't believe in that kind of behaviour it is very childish for grown-ups to behave that way. If I am in a committed relationship both parties must beable to trust one another in the meaning of commitment, that means to me if you have a long standing friendship with ,say a co-worker, you must beable to have the freedom to speak to the person without looking over your shoulder, even go for coffee without your partner, that is the true sence of a commitment, you want to be with the person you chose so trust the person whole heartedly. I see it in that manner, because at the end of the day you will be with the one you chose, cuddled up and having the time of your life. I belong to the Roman Catholic, and I am an active person there too. Love spending time with the young and old people. I was brought up open minded and very broad minded. All people do not have the same kind of thinking about everything, so to each his own, you have an opinion and I have an opinion which we all keep to ourselves, unless it starts to hurt and interfere a relationship then you have the right to say what you think about it, but I do not really get involved with things that could be harmfull to near and dear to me. On my birthday I love having an hour or 2 with the person very close to my heart all to myself first, I know that sounds selfish, but then I know it is my birthday. On the night of my birthday my nearset and dearest gather together for a dinner, could be at home or in a restaurant, or at a family members house, or even a day out sos that the closeness is felt by all. After that depending on what the number (age) is a big bash with all the friends for the time of you life dancing singing practical jokes laughter and fun. I do tend to make a big fuss on dearests for their birthday,spoil them rotten put them on high pedstal and love them even more. I had a very happy easy going marriage, beautiful time, and therefore I still believe in marriage. Would I get married again, yes I would if the person I was involved with really cared and loved me for who I am, not to make comparrissons. As no 2 marriages could be the same ,for the partners are different each one must be considered on their own merrits. If you had a loving relationship with your belated spouse you would know what to look for in a second marriage and be just as happy if not more the 2nd time round. Marriage to me is sacred. It does not mean you belong to a certain person, but you chose be the other persons safe landing, confidant, best friend, and best of all the love of your partners life, to be there in good times and in hard times. To be the best for each other and love each other as if there were no tomorrow.Love is the strongest feeling between 2 people and should not be complicated it must come from the heart, it must feel as if you are the breath and heartbeat to your partner and that the world can be conquered if you are together. Mutual trust, understanding, companionship and communication is what makes a relationship work. Accepting all that comes with a new relationship and not to push it away, as each partner does have a bag of goodies that must be accepted and treated properly and with wisdom and dignity. That is now my newspaper, hope you have an idea now of who I am. Wishing you peace of mind, a good rest with sweet dreams, and warm huggs. Enjoy the trip, you must tell me more about what you are doing and up to what mischief you get upto. Speak to you soon xxxxxxx
