Letter 1

I always thought that I would meet that special someone the "old fashion" way…drunk in a bar. But, I guess Jim Beam, Jack Daniels, and Jose Quervo have snatched up all those ladies. So here I am. Where do I start on this ego-centric exercise of describing one's self? let's see. I find myself more aware of the smaller things in life. I believe that deeds supersede words in ANY situation, but the words are still important. I find that travel and exploration have assumed a large role in my world and I would really like to share those adventures with someone with similar interests. I am honest, sometimes to a fault. My loyalty is unquestioned, once you have earned it. I believe that everyone has within themselves the ability to achieve anything, if they are provided with the tools and environment to succeed (don't hand a person a fish, hand them a fishing rod). I deeply admire average people who rise up and do exceptional things (ex. CAPT Sulley, our service men and women, etc). I also deeply admire those who put in an honest day's work for an honest day's pay and go about making this country what it is. I am profoundly patriotic, but aware that we are not alone. Lastly, I try to live by a creed that I memorized many years ago… "The True Gentleman is the man whose conduct proceeds from good will and an acute sense of propriety, and whose self-control is equal to all emergencies; who does not make the poor man conscious of his poverty, the obscure man of his obscurity, or any man of his inferiority or deformity; who is himself humbled if necessity compels him to humble another; who does not flatter wealth, cringe before power, or boast of his own possessions or achievements; who speaks with frankness but always with sincerity and sympathy; whose deed follows his word; who thinks of the rights and feelings of others, rather than his own; and who appears well in any company, a man with whom honor is sacred and virtue safe."
What am I looking for??? I am not searching for someone who is perfect...just perfect for me. Some characteristics I look for: drama-free, honest, faithful, sense of humor, family oriented, drug & disease free, humility, confidence, and a sense of independence. If you like sports and going golfing, BIG bonus points. I am looking for the woman to make my world complete.

Good Morning LM_RN66 and how are you today? After going through your profile, I thought to myself, "wow", a WINK just isn't going to do it! And since I believe you miss 100% of the shots you don't take, I thought I'd just go ahead and take the shot. I am pretty new to this and trying to figure out how the online dating site works. I have a clue, Its about selecting someone that interests you and getting to know the person better and setting up a date. It just reminds me of the good old days. Writing love letters and looking at the mail box every day for a response. I am glad I am part of the internet generation. You can connect the world at a click. What is your email address? Mine is daveraymond54@aol.com and I can be the gentle man and write you. I believe that life is an adventure, you never know where it will take you, and it's always full of opportunities, so I figure the worst thing that could happen is I scare you away with my note and that's that...or, on the other hand, you're intrigued, we find we have a lot in common, you write me and go from there. Hope you have a great day, take care and I hope to hear from you soon. Regards, Dave

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner as i have been very busy with work. I am very happy you wrote to me on the match site. How is your day going and i hope this email meets you in the best of health.

Here is a little more about me:

My full name is David P. Raymond, born of mixed blood, English Mother and American father, I am an only child of what was described as a good union, there was the man from Denver Colorado who fell in love with a British orphan from London,England and they lived like each other's engine {smiles}. He was renowned in his business of oil filtering back in the days , i grew up hoping to continue my fathers path, but then the world changed right before my eyes, no more filtering but treatments, but then i still chose to do something in that field since OIL RUNS THE WORLD in this day. My mother moved back to Chelsea later and still stays there, I did get to stay in Chelsea while i was married, She was also British, she was into fashion and also dedicated her life to philanthropically works ,she was my best friend and confidant. she made me realize a man needs more than a wife, but also a best friend and confidant, not one to follow or lead, but to walk by your side at all times. I was Married to a wonderful and beautiful woman, I lost her 14 years ago to cancer, It was the most devastating period of my life but I have learned that time heals all wounds.

I am a self-employed oil and gas Contractor and Civil Engineer, I specialize in negotiation of oil purchases and resale to prospective clients, drilling and excavations, geological tests, crude imports and exports and general maintenance and servicing of oil wells. I am also an advocate for a fume free Eco system so I work on projects aimed at controlling spillages. We need to protect our natural habitat. My clients range from governmental to private conglomerates worldwide. I just don't love what I do I have a passion for it.

I just want to spend the rest of my life enjoying the fruit of my labor. 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.

I am a total package, i only need someone who understands the value of a good smile.

I cant wait to hear back from you. please write me soon i will wait to read from you.

I hope i have not bored you with my life in summary.

Your turn
David Raymond

Good morning my exciting stranger Lori,

It is heart calming to see your response, I really appreciate this communication and I will say it is a sign of will, and I tell you where there is a will there is success ahead. I read your note with a big smile on my face. Knowing more about you and you knowing more about me may be a good start to something wonderful who knows? we have talked about, family and work, what else could i share now?I am sorry about the loss of your husband, i know what it feels like to loose someone close to you. I have been made to know I do write and speak well in a way that gets to the mind, well, I think I simply try my best to express what I feel and I don't edit what I say or hide my feelings no matter what the recipient feels as I believe nothing supersedes the truth. I must emphasize that I am not one of those who seek instant chemistry. That is where most people go astray, seeing someone in an instant and luring yourself to really believe there is something in you that immediately that which you can't explain in someone, then I wonder how people defines infatuation or childish crush otherwise.

The essence of online dating was never intended for people because they lack the courage to interact with opposite sex physically, but because research shows many of the soldiers back in the days who met women via letter writing actually live the life there after in good ways, and then it is now manifest that when people meet on the net, they should at least explore each other's mind for a while, share ideas and compare views, finding a common ground is a very great achievement, isn't it said that loving is the soul's recognition of its counterpart in another person. In fact in the medium, it makes you know a person so well to a point you feel they are no more strangers, you would have escaped the possibilities of sentimental attractions in instant meetings , due to beauty, boldness and so on, where you won't be able to really be who you are.
It might be thought of in the past, a once lonely man opened an email message from a stranger. It was a nice message but it was brief and at first glance, nothing led him to believe it was significant to this level, But soon, he might learn this message was very special indeed. Maybe it would be my story; we can't know (smiles). Maybe on the other end, the other story would be, She sat at her computer and typed with frantic haste, There was so much she needed to say and so little time, Her heart poured out so easily through her fingers As the words appeared on the screen before her She filled her screen with her words of affection Then waited anxiously for him to type his reply, Her heart skipped as his reply appeared before her and She read and reread his words of endearment Then hurried to reply as her heart beat quickly With her emotions building higher with every word Telling how she yearned to be able to touch him ,Longed to be able to see him, to gaze into his eyes (smiles) oh if that becomes your story , then we may be a good match. Please forgive my humor; I am just like that, always playful.

Over time I have always called UK home being that my mom lives there so when I am not working which doesn't happen so often, I always go and stay with her unfortunately I wasn't blessed with any kids before my late wife passed away. I am currently in the country for a few days before traveling again for a job completion in Dubai. Ben, Troy and I have always stayed at Troy's in his Denver home before his wife moved to Australia to be close to her aged mom. I did not buy a house in the States until now, because I would love to find my woman first, then building a home would start from there, that being so because I traveled a lot to many countries for work but now I have gotten to the stage in my life when it's time to stop the traveling and focus on being happy with my partner while I work from my home office. I love sea food, I eat mostly intercontinental foods, don't blame me, character I picked up along on my traveling adventures for work. My best color is black; I dress clean, exercise regularly. I don't drink except for parties, no smoking. When I am not working I do try my best to give myself the best treat, you will agree that all work and no play makes David a dull boy. I would usually take off to Europe, or Asia. I love sailing, surfing, I do ski,I play the Piano and Sax very well , I do golf and play tennis also.

This is a journey we are trying to make here and I know it's probably not, the best thing, but I'll try it anyway, because I know it could be the best thing, it could be the best! But we would never know unless we try would we? Seriously they say Find arms that will hold you at your weakest, eyes that will see you at your ugliest, lips that will kiss you in both instances, and a heart that will love you at your worst. Only then will you have found your true love. I have always said I would want my woman, someone I would love at all stages of life, I mean even after we stop making love but play bingo. What is love all about? It's all about giving, taking, sharing and keeping. If you are willing to do all this, then you are ready to love that someone special. I would give all I have for the one thing that cannot be bought. (Smiles)

I really hope to hear from you soon.

An exciting stranger,

David Raymond
