I've learned that " life for me is easy and more beneficial to just allow other people to be as they choose to be." I'm an easygoing gentleman, educated, employed, and single. I'm also laid back in temperament. I have a job and some hobbies. Right now, dating is a recreational pastime for me and will remain so until I am convinced in my heart that she is the one. I'm a young man although I'm in my early fifties so anything great can happen if the attitude and the spirit are good. I seek a lady first and foremost. I prefer the old fashioned woman from a firm old fashioned family. Yes, I want an old fashioned, conservative woman for myself. Of course, there is need for prudery. I am not a prude nor afraid of emotional intimacy. I don't want her to be a prude either. I guess that all I want is a conventional, healthy, slow-paced relationship with a middle aged lady.
