Treating all animals with respect and kindness
Temper: Yes, I have one or so I've been told ;) but to me there is no place in a relationship for physical violence of any kind. Disagreements are inevitable and should end softly and respectfully.
Dining Out: I'm a very good cook and am usually disappointed at most restaurants, so don't eat out much.
Shopping: I'm like most men. I make a list and either buy it online or go directly to where it is and buy it.
I am looking for a non-smoking woman 50 and older, somebody kind of like me :D It could just be for an activity/travel friend, someone just to confide in, trust and share ideas with or even a serious long term (permanent) romantic relationship. As I said, I am open-minded. Just because we are dissimilar in someways does not mean that we are totally incompatible even though there are deal breakers. I do offer a Lifetime Warranty :)
If you know someone or you are that someone, please email me ... firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for reading, Ted
News: I decided a couple of weeks ago to stop all daily news after reading an article asking the question … “What does news do for you?” It's been kinda' strange not knowing what's going on in the world, but it's also been quite rewarding and liberating. I have had more time to focus on other, more positive things; No more bad news to stress about. Only thing that worries me is possibly not knowing about a national emergency ahead of time. I figure a friend or neighbor would alert me.
