Is The Love Of My Life In My Future Or In My Past?

Oh dear – I do feel for these people who write in with their dating stories!

I am 56 years old and in the best shape of my life. You might find that hard to believe, but prior to last year, I was always working. Luckily, I was fortunate enough to run my own business and retire at a relatively young age. Younger than most, anyway. I now go to the gym four days per week, I go kayaking once per week, and I play in an Over 55 softball league, which is known as a senior league. I’m really into the softball league since softball has always been my passion. And now that it’s an even playing field, I’m really excelling again like I did in my 20s and 30s.

What I’m looking for is someone with similar interests. I would love to find a woman who is passionate about something active. It doesn’t need to be working out, kayaking, or softball. As long as it’s related to a healthy lifestyle, I would be interested. It’s also okay if she were married once before. If it’s twice before, I’ll have to pass, that’s too much drama for me.

Sounds like an easy request, doesn’t it? Yes, but it’s not as easy as it sounds. Based on my past experiences, all of the best women are still married. The men who are married to these women aren’t stupid. They know a good thing when they see it. However, I know there are a lot of other great women out there. And this doesn’t only pertain to staying healthy. I’m talking about women who have a good heart and are also caring and friendly.

It sounds like I want the world, doesn’t it? Of course I do, I’m human. And I’m 56! I might have plenty of time left, but it’s not like being 25 when you think you’re going to live forever. I want the best out of life. I don’t think that’s too much to ask. And as far as my past goes, I have never been married. I was engaged once in my early 20s, but I found out that my fiancée did some very bad things at her hen party.

Some guys might think this is okay, but I knew I wouldn’t be able to trust her and couldn’t live the rest of my life thinking about that. She was definitely the love of my life. On one hand, I think I should have talked her out of having that party. On the other hand, it was better to find out what she was like before we got married. Now I’m on the hunt for the next love of my life. I hope I can find her!
