HERE'S MORE INFORMATION THAN YOU'LL EVER WANT TO KNOW ABOUT ME! <LOL>
I'm from Boston (Brookline), currently living in San Diego. I have lived in Boston, Ft. Lauderdale and San Diego, but San Diego formost of the last 25 years.
Yes, I am offering a$1,000 CASH REWARD* -a finder's fee (or recompensa en Espanol) for the person who is responsible for me meeting the woman that I marry. We are talking about a normal relationship leading to marriage (not a 1 day courtship, but not years,either!) Contrary to what you may think, this is not a joke! :))) PLEASE SEE THE SIMPLE DISCLAIMERs BELOW! I am seriously interested finding and falling in love with Ms. Right and getting married and living happily ever after. :>)
Of all the things that could be "wrong" with a guy....of all the reasons why a woman would not want a guy - he could be a druggie, a heavy drinker, been in jail, a cheat or liar, been bankrupt a few times, didn't pay his child support, is a woman abuser, or in general - a bum. WELL, NONE OF THESE THINGS IS ME! I AM ONE OF "THE GOOD GUYS"!
One of the most common reasons that women are not interested in me is because I don't fly (yes, in planes...although it is possible for a short hop from florida to the Bahamas!). She could fly - with her sister, mother, aunt....anyone but her ex-boyfriend! ha,ha! I will travel the U.S. & Canada, and a little Mexico by car or RV. Have taken a train cross country, and cruises. Driving cross country is great fun with the right person and great music blasting!
About my finances: I am self sufficient, have no debts, excellent credit, some small assets, plus a wonderful, little 1 bedroom condo on a sparkling canal a few minutes from the beach in Florida, but I'm not loaded with money and I can't support her too (on a permanent basis). She would have to either work or have a pension or social security, or something, and then we could combine forces! Please note - I am not looking for rich lady, nor do I want her money. If I happen to connect with a woman who has much more than I do, I would have no problem signing a pre-nup.
REASONS WHY A WOMAN MIGHT WANT TO MARRY ME:
I am, by my own admission, a wonderful father of 2 great kids (by their admission), both living on the East coast, that I don't see often enough. I'm very proud of them, and have a great relationship with both of them and all of my family, for that matter.
A GOOD GUY - I am honest, responsible, reliable, full of integrity, and totally faithful in a relationship. Character is important to me: If I tell you something - it's the truth; If I say that I'll do something - I will do it! I'm not a player, but I like to play! I sleep well at night because I have a clear conscience!
I am in pretty good shape... physically, I'm 5'7" and 190 lbs...over 69 years old, workout some, but could lose 10 -15 pounds which would melt away pretty quickly if I had a "playmate"! My primary cook book is, "A man, a can, a microwave"! LOL! I hate anything to do with the kitchen except eating, but I will help with the clean up!. I do eat fairly healthy, however at night I fall into the junk food trap. (Google the song "Junk food Junkie" - that's almost me!). So, I don't really cook but I can nuke a piece of chicken or salmon, and recently discovered instant (microwave) mashed potatoes! Yummy! Note: I can be clean shaven or some facial hair - which ever she prefers.
I Am romantic: I'm full of passion, and like holding hands, cuddling, spooning, kissing & PDA, and just all of it, and making her feel special!
I love kids, animals, nature, most music, museums and the arts in general, movies, plays, older musical groups in concert, Football on tv, and other sports to a lesser extent I love the beautiful California weather, scenery and beaches and proximity to San Francisco, LA, Palm Springs, and Las Vegas, Hollywood,etc
I was a florist for more than 30 years so I love flowers! I have also organized hundreds of social events utilizing a band or DJ, so I love music!
I'm just your average, blue collar type of Jeep driving guy. Played a little softball, tennis, bowled, did some down hill skiing, and jet skiing, but haven't done many of these lately, just mostly apres`skiing! ha,ha!! Ping pong would be great! I can HIT a tennis ball, but not run after it very well.
I would be open to trying other forms of entertainment that she might like such as an opera or ballet providing that she wouldn't get angry if happened to nod off. LOL!
I'm not intellectual but am informed on current events; I'm not sophisticated but own 2 tux's! I clean up well, if needed, and play well with others! :>)
Politically, I'm somewhat in the middle - socially liberal and fiscally conservative, and I can be very politically incorrect and irreverent, and a bit edgy!
I am open to all ethnic groups, races, and all ages up or down, if the chemistry is there! I'm open to most main stream religions, if she is not really practicing.
I've been married twice. (totally faithful both times) The first time we just weren't right for each other, but we got two great kids out of the marriage..The second time 15 + years ago, it was my fault - I was stupid! Don't plan on making the same mistakes again.
I would like to be spending some months in Winter at my condo in Florida. Could want to move there in future years.
THE WOMAN THAT I'M LOOKING FOR:
...is ok with what I have and what I don't have. She should be attractive, in half way decent shape as I am, and not "high maintenance" ($wise), or "high style" ...the less jewelry & make-up, the better for me - closer to natural. Not against a little makeup and jewelry, just not tons of it. Not a work-aholic, over achiever. Financially - low debt, has a job of any kind and or social security and pension, so that we can combine incomes.
She should want to make our relationship the top priority in her life, as I would. I am looking for a fun woman who is active but not one who rides a motorcycle, climbs mountains, wants to sky dive, hot air balloon, bungee jump, does quads or swims with sharks, etc, but still she is fun, playful, frisky, and not prudish. She is a non-smoker. It's ok if she is not a great cook - I don't have a sense of smell and I will eat everything that she puts in front of me & like it! ha,ha! I want a woman who's more interested in the the "little things" that I would do for her, rather than the BIG things that a guy could BUY for her!! She doesn't have to be perfect - just perfect for me! :)))
I am looking for a woman probably around 60-68, but she could be of ANY age, up or down, if the chemistry is there!
"I've been searchin' for the daughter of the devil himself and an angel in white, a woman who's a little of both, but she's been no where in sight" The Eagles, "One of these nights... (...I'm gonna find her)".
I'm looking for a woman who is easy...
"I don't want clever conversation - I never want to work that hard...just want someone I can talk to.... " Billy Joel "Just the way you are".
I am not looking for a Barbie, but no heavy weight women, either. If she's taller, that's ok with me. Chemistry is what matters!
If you know of an attractive (cute, pretty, drop dead) lady who might be interested in a good guy like me, please send some recent pictures to me along with some info about her. If I think that we might be a match, then you can send her my pictures and some info about me. If she is interested we can start with emails online. thenon the phone, and if there's a connection we can meet for coffee and see what happens. If she's not local....well, we'll see what happens online & phone ; Maybe would could split ($) a trip for her to come here for us to meet. (I have many character references - just ask!)

Please ask any questions that you like...
A Final note - if a woman is really serious and would like to do a background check on me, that would be just fine with me!
I'm Hoping to hear from that special woman - maybe you or someone that you know?!?
RECENT PHOTOS of her would be a requirement for us to start a conversation.
The reward does not apply for a woman that I already know, or a woman that I meet at an event that I host.
The "finder" who refers, or introduces me to the woman, must make him or herself known to me by email within one week of me meeting or being introduced to her. (so that if <and AFTER> I marry the woman, a person can not THEN claim that they were the one who introduced us, in order to collect the reward! Fair is Fair! So, if you refer a woman to me, let me know in Email, ASAP!)
The reward remains valid while it is posted on this website.
Thank you and best wishes to all who took the time to look and or respond!
