Hello Sweet Angel,
How are you doing today, hope all is well? I hope this e-mail finds
you in a place of warmth and comfort. Seeing your profile was a
pleasant surprise…and honestly…the first word that came to my mind
was...Wow!!! You are such an angel. Your profile caught my fancy and I
wanted to learn more.
Before I proceed further, I think it will be polite for me to
introduce myself to you. I am 45 years old, living in Alden in
Illinois. As for my ethnicity, Mom's Scottish and English, Dad is
Greek. I am a mix of several beautiful cultures. Born in the US, I was
raised internationally, so I value and celebrate all people and all
backgrounds...I'm a world citizen. I have never been married and have
no kids. I see the world through blue eyes that are caring and
compassionate, I have a black hair, my height is 5'10" (178cms) and my
weight is 185lbs {84kg}, I am a Catholic and was raised in a Catholic
way; I have been a Catholic all my life. I believe Jesus walks in ways
we can not see. I certainly do believe in God, His Son, and the Holy
Spirit. I just believe in His word. I believe in His awesomeness, and
I believe that I am here today because of His love, which is the
greatest love ever; and because He loved the world so much that
instead of letting the people perish, He sent His son, Jesus, to pay a
hefty ransom to save our lives. God is awesome and because of His
unfathomable love Jesus Himself left the splendor of heaven to put on
flesh to feel what we feel and to save us. I was born and raised to
love God and share this love with others in divers ways but I respect
other people's world views. I have been a born again Christian for
more than 20 years now and I am very proud and happy to serve the Lord
genuinely my dear.
First let me share that I’m not looking for a casual fling, I am not
into games and I am hoping to find a meaningful relationship. I'm a
Building and road contractor, the nature of my job takes me around the
globe. I think people have to get to a certain level of maturity, and
also to a certain level of understanding of what they want out of
life, before they are ready to seek out the life partner or helpmate
who is really best for them, I know I am very very ready for that now,
do you think you are ready for that sweetone?
Let me start by saying... I am not a player! I repeat... I am not a
player... It is as if hard working well rounded men like myself take
the blunt end of the hammer because of low life loser guys who crush
woman's hearts before a nice guy can give a woman what she really
wants like true Companionship. I honestly wish to find a woman, to be
my soul mate and my partner for life. Ultimately... I would love to
marry and settle down for the longterm.
I am intelligent, passionate, and optimistic about life in general. I
have a good education (Masters in Business Administration), a good job
(Building and road construction), a wonderful passion for writing (A
little good in poems), and am very ambitious. My friends will tell you
that I am honest, have a sense of humor and care deeply for family. I
also believe in God, fate, and real love. I’m not into smoking or
drugs…but will drink a little on rare occasions. I enjoy movies,
music, festivals, concerts, the beach, visiting parks , working out,
eating at nice restaurants, barbecues, boating, and any experience
that creates great memories. I’m also into nature, animals, and
traveling. Speaking of traveling…I have travelled to many countries
for work such as (Tunisia, Mozambique and South Africa all that in
Africa, I have been to England, Germany, Italy, Scotland, Spain all
that in Europe, I have as well been to Iran and China in Asia) and not
in many states within the United States anyway.
I am a fun loving person and I have a very big heart. I give
unconditionally without wanting anything in return and once I give it,
it is gone and committed as seed. I believe in helping the less
fortunate when possible. I like to laugh and play, but I also have a
very serious side when I need to have one.. I am very goal oriented,
and I try to stay organized. I am an extremely chivalrous man aswell.
Being that I don't make much of a habit to speak a lot in the first
person, I asked a few friends to describe some of my characteristics
and attributes; this was what they came up with:
"...big heart, well-rounded, generous, intelligent, compassionate,
selfless, hard-working, creative, great listener and communicator,
engaging, supportive, understanding, balanced, warm, kind, funny and
many times 'hilarious', polite, down-to-earth, fun to be with." Am
very active, always positive and upbeat, am a glass 7/8th's full kind
of person (which beats a glass half-full, btw). My friends will tell
you that I am honest, have a sense of humor and care deeply for
family. I also believe in God, His Son and the work of the Holy Spirit
that guides and helps me. I would have to say I am very funny and fun
to be around. I am very kind and have a huge heart. I need to be
around people with a great sense of humor. I am very independent, but
enjoy spending quality time with those I love. I enjoy going out to
dinner and having drinks but I have not done that for years now. I
look forward to seeing the sun rise and set. I enjoy staying home with
a good book, soccer magazines or mostly my bible on a rainy Sunday.
I am someone who can make you laugh, who is considerate and kind,
Someone you can easily talk to or not talk to---every minute doesn't
have to be filled with conversation, just being with one another is
important. I am a hopeless romantic-I love to give cards and flowers
for no special reason. I love to massage, touch and be touched, I love
to cuddle and I am a true gentleman that believes that women are a
true gift from God to be worshipped and admired.
I have never been married but I believe that marriage can be an oasis
where God's love is shared between two people despite whatever else
might be going on in life--job problems, financial issues, caring for
one's elderly parents or losing friends to disease. I believe two
people can be a shelter for one another from these storms of life,
supporting one another in the bad times as well as rejoicing and
celebrating the good times, reminding one another of just how much
they are each loved by God.
I would describe myself as first a very understanding, patient, and
kind man. Yet, I would also describe myself as assertive, intelligent,
and a loyal mate. I love the warm weather, sports, the mountains and
the water. My hobbies are reading, swimming, gardening, working out
and video games. I keep very busy in my life and enjoy being alone. I
enjoy traveling, and camping. A good bottle of wine is something I
look forward to on Friday night as I kick back and relax and be
grateful for the so many blessings I have in my life. I am a Godly
man, chivalrous, fun loving person and I have a very big heart. I give
unconditionally without wanting anything in return and once I give it,
it is gone and committed as seed. I have a wonderful passion for
writing, am good in poetry and am very ambitious. My friends and
people around will tell you that I am honest, have a sense of humor
and care deeply for family. I also believe in God, fate, and real
love. Am not into smoking or drugs…but will drink a little on rare
occasions. I am a man who knows how to broaden, build upon, protect
and secure with wisdom the boarders of me and my partner’s life and
all that God has entrusted me--with great responsibility and bold
responsiveness to that responsibility.
I am creative and love to have fun; I love the snow and quiet evenings
at home watching movies on rainy days. I love rainy days, most people
complain about them, but I love them and besides I am not most people,
I am a different and unique kind of man. Rain brings rainbows and it
waters the flowers, I love walking in the rain and shopping for trees
and flowers in the rain; I think they look their best when it is
raining. I also love scooping up the earth in my hands and planting a
seed or a plant and then watching God's magic throughout it's life.
Such a simple thing that isn't really simple at all.
I enjoy going to the mountains, walks on the beach, scrabble,
swimming, reading the Bible, inspirational, romantic books and soccer
magazines, movies, and cooking.
I have a very close and personal relationship with God. Everything
that I have, I have because of Him. However, I do not go around
talking constantly about God and Jesus, I would rather be a living
example and let people see Jesus in me and manifested by the fruits of
the spirit, love, joy, and peace..........
I enjoy movies, music, festivals, concerts, the beach, visiting parks
, working out, eating at nice restaurants, barbecues, boating, and any
experience that creates great memories. I like to help the less
privilege whenever possible, it gives me great joy doing so. I love
weekend getaways, long talks, walks in the park, the beach, candle lit
and romantic dinners, and snuggling by the fire of a cold winter night
mostly with that special someone{do you think that can be you?}
I think people have to get to a certain level of maturity, and also to
a certain level of understanding of what they want out of life, before
they are ready to seek out the life partner or helpmate who is really
best for them, I know I am very very ready for that now, do you think
you are ready for that my dear friend? I honestly wish to find a woman
to be my soul mate and my partner for life. Ultimately, I would love
to marry and settle down for the long term. Do you think that I can
have that woman in you?
I always tell the truth and expect the same in return no matter what.
I treat people the way I would want to be treated. I also believe in
full disclosure - you can ask me anything and I will answer. I am
ready to be in love and get married to a woman who will love me for
me. I will like to wake up happy next to the woman I love.
By nature I am a giver and generous. I live life as if time is on
fire. Beingness is a dance of breathing, at once action & listening. I
am a visionary, loving, orthogonal, focused, driven, intentioned,
romantic, creative, handsome, attractive, powerful, interventionist,
energetic, abundant, sensuous, vulnerable, intimate, trusting,
forgiving, competitive, honest, passionate, poet, courageous, leader,
nurturing, open, ambitious man.
Passionate, devoted, articulate, kind and loving with an open heart,
active, good looking and far younger looking than my years--these are
some of the things friends would tell you about me--a zest for humor
in life, a love of fun in all forms, sexy, intelligent and confident,
attractive and I stay healthy and in shape. But I think you should
check me out for yourself to be sure!
I'm in search of the woman of my dreams! And because I haven’t found
her yet, I believe that the best part of my life is yet to come :)
I want to create; take a loving relationship to places of the heart we
haven't discovered yet. I believe we have a range of emotions that we
have not yet accessed but will soon. I want to be part of the first
couple- voyagers that passes through these straits. Seek lover who can
also navigate what we don't know we don't know. A Woman with the
confidence & self assurance to know we can pull it off and lead,
create a path of love as yet untraveled, unlocked, following the
saxophone, sextants, signs in the dark. Staring into each others eyes
changing our shadows to light, golden joy. I hold my breathe for you.
Sail away with my heart, my heart is in your hands. Metamorphosis,
change, animal traits, heart trails, genes of a million years, all
that is will mixed with fate and the divine. The whole world is at our
feet. Music is important as a source of inspiration and heart, so are
rainbows, flowers, the laughing of children, a warm hand in mine,
seeking, reaching, finding, being. I am looking for an intelligent,
voluptuous, articulate, passionate, sensuous, sexy, tall, leader,
spiritual, exotic, intentioned, focused, creative, spontaneous,
interesting, giving, risk taker, authoring her own life, open,
powerful, classy, comfortable, confident, enthusiastic, sparkling,
successful, aggressive, vulnerable.
To describe the woman of my dreams--well, I don't know, I haven't
found her yet. But until I do, life's beautiful but not nearly as
beautiful as it can be, would be, with her. With her I'm a better
person, that's what I do know. And that’s where you come in, as I'm
hoping you'll read and relate and write back saying: "Hey, where have
you been all my life?" Well, I'm here! Waiting for you!
My ideal mate would be a woman who is strong both physically and
personally, but not selfish. A woman who respects herself enough so
she in turn respects others. A woman who has a high self esteem, but
is not arrogant. A woman who enjoys a family and being a part of a
family. A woman who has or does put her family needs above those of
her own. My ideal mate would be successful in her chosen profession,
and is at a comfortable place in her life, both financially and
emotionally. My ideal mate would enjoy sports, and stays active in her
life. My ideal mate has no secrets and tells no lies, she is honest,
kind, and enjoys romance as well as intimacy.
Well, I'm looking for a partner who doesn't mind sharing everything:
The good times and the bad, someone to watch a good movie with, for
great conversation and see the world with. Good company and
conversation essential. I'm looking for an intelligent, kind, caring,
loving, honest, loyal and family oriented woman with opinions of their
own, someone who has inner beauty because that is where the true
beauty lies. Above all you must be Godly and have a good sense of
humor. I will like my partner to be my friend first because friendship
is the foundation to any relationship and key to that friendship is
emotional intimacy -- a safe place that you build together where
there's free flow of thoughts and feelings without fear of being
judged. Love isn't finding someone you can live with... Love is
finding someone you can't live without!
I hope you like all that you have read, I am hoping to hearing from
you again pretty soon my dear. Please do take very good care of
yourself and may the peace of the Lord be with you always. May God
take you in His arms and guide you in all that you do and keep you
safe, amen.


NB..: No one falls in love by choice, it is by CHANCE. No one stays in
love by chance, it is by WORK. And no one falls out of love by chance,
it is by CHOICE.


Smiles..
Michael.

My name is Michael, I am 45 years old, single and never been married with no kids. I am a Contractor who is into building and road construction and I live in Alden, Illinois. The nature of my job takes me around the globe and my main interests in life include my work, and my faith because I was born and raised to love God and share this love with others in divers way, in any case I respect other people's world views. I have a very good sense of humor, I am caring, loving, affectionate, understanding, and very respectful and I am as well a chivalrous man..

I am not into games, just someone new in online dating and searching for a caring woman for a good, committed and serious long term relationship with marriage at heart.

Profile;

Where is the best place to go on a date?

Anywhere nice to talk and get acquainted. Maybe a beach, a restaurant, a park, a museum, movies, music, festivals, concerts, the beach, visiting parks, working out, eating at nice restaurants, boating.

What are you looking for in a partner?

I am looking for a serious long term relationship with marriage in mind.
As for me I want a serious relationship. Relationships must for me start with friendship. With friendship comes trust. My perfect match would be someone that knows that God and our Savior Jesus Christ is the one who makes all things possible and has a real relationship with Him. My perfect match would also be someone that values family, commitment, honesty, openness and intimacy. She should be an active, intelligent, confident, and realistic lady who likes to keep it positive, stay upbeat, and have a good time. Plus, she should understand where she wants to go in life. To take time in getting to know each other. To learn what each other needs out of a relationship.

I'm in search of the woman of my dreams! And because I haven’t found her yet, I believe that the best part of my life is yet to come
I want to create; take a loving relationship to places of the heart we haven't discovered yet. I believe we have a range of emotions that we have not yet accessed but will soon. I want to be part of the first couple- voyagers that passes through these straits. Seek lover who can also navigate what we don't know we don't know.

I'd just like to add...

I love to go to the beach, camping, and so on.

Put in your e-mail whenever you are writing me so that I can write you directly to your e-mail address when replying.

Thank you for taking your time to read my profile, God bless you.
