  1. The truth is you will never know.


    The truth is, you'll always be taking a chance. But this is where commitment comes in. You simply find someone who has enough qualities that you're looking for, that you have a reasonable amount of chemistry with.


    Someone you genuinely like and who has the morals you have and a similar outlook in life.


    I honestly suspect some people will have extremely long dating careers not so much because they didn't find someone they could be highly compatible with and have a great marriage with, but because of their notion of what "the one" entails.

    Yup sounds about right to me. I recon that in this world there may be a number of people that you might be compatible with. And as said its all a matter of finding that someone who has "enough" of your desired qualities to make it ok for you. Its all to easy to go looking for perfection but that makes it a hard haul ?? And as you get older even harder.

    Happy Sunday. Col.

  2. Hmmmm.

    Travel the world. Love sailing I have the yacht although I only sail in lovely weather so no bumpy stuff ta.

    True love hell thats a funny one........ True love..... True love at my age is so complicated especially as I only grew up not to long ago ha ha ha ..... But contented with a partner has to be a major goal. Past mistakes are now thankfully a blur.

    Help others. Love sailing and next year I hope to sail around Great Britain for charity. That would be cool.

    Adore children and whatever I can do for any of them is a priority.

    Happy Saturday. Col xx

  3. Aw for a start.

    That lovely girl Brenda. Oooops did I add a bit ha ha. Ok similar age, worldly,nice,good faith and a bit of a naughty streak I suspect? And talks of the hills of north Carolina enough to want me to sail my old tub there.

    Josh. Well this guy should be a Brit he has the humour of a Brit. And I think your great mate.

    Cou, Like a white rose just about to burst into bloom but you are soooooo young I need to vet every chap that attempts to talk to you xx

    Ian. Soul mate as such who I wish I had the time to chat to more on a PM basis and hope that as life slows for me I can say hey Im on a plane lets have a beer.

    Starter for ten. Happy Saturday. Col xxx

  4. Hmm ok. Here we go.

    Father was my best mate until the day he died. We sat down in "his" room when I was a child and teen and he subtly explained to me many principles of WTM which I listened to until I grew to an age where I thought I knew better (idiot) glad I remember his wise words.

    Still feel that he guides me to this day.

    Mother is still alive (93) and is in an old peoples home and I visit here as much as I can. I think I'm one of the only people she remembers ( she has memory loss ). She is a sweety.

    Both proud that they only had each other !!!

  5. Well the only way for me also to comment here is to imagine that I was a 20 or so year old WTM and I had grown some common sense earlier than I actually did. Then yep I would be on a plane. Actually can I have my yacht that I bought at 40 and I will sail across the pond he he he .

    Great mind teaser chaps keep them coming.

  6. Hmmmm. Ok I am ok with it and im ok with some soft stuff before marriage. All but no actual intercourse. These are my ideals of course as in real life I grew up far too slowly. To change that would be high on my " if you could change one thing list". He he As already said everyone to their own opinions but for me im ok with people doing a little sexual selection before they commit to a permanent sexual relationship/marriage.

    Hey nearly the weekend. Have a good one, Col.

  7. Aw there is no age that you can say is right. Its just when its right for you. Im an old Daddy. Very old. He he. I get tired out when Henry wants to play ball and wants me to run from him when he is armed with his new Nerf gun !!! But at my age im better off and can spoil him. Swings and roundabouts. Love bears no age mind. Tonight we sat in the garden watching the moon rise. Same moon that you guys will see in a couple of hours and he watched the Geese migrating and said they are going South Daddy where it is warmer. Precious.

    Happy Saturday all. Col. Xx

  8. @rookiepilot1 and @markb4 >


    just a hint for the future...   learning to cook gives you 2 things...  1st...   it will be great bonding stuff (shared fun and teaching) with your kids :-)    I taught the kids a lot about cooking and in so doing, a lot about food and taste and places they can dream about going and the self-sufficiency of "I can make it for myself".  :-)


    2nd...  it's awesomely impressive stuff for a GF and WIFE!!   I'm just saying you might want to play with cooking a little bit :-).    i think my wife thinks there is nothing more romantic than when i get fussing in the kitchen to make just that one thing that is seduction on a plate :-)




    one final note...   I taught myself to cook...   so it wasn't really a case of "learning"...  it was a case of "trying"...  anyway - go have some fun sometime in the kitchen...   if you find it's your thing then you'll do more of it...   if you find it's not...   you can still find that  one or two meals you make that are just great date meals :-).

    FANTASTIC. Proper man of my own heart.............

  9. "Men lie because women like what they hear. Women wear makeup because men like what they see."






    What do you think of this statement? 

    Is makeup like lying?

    Wow you are very deep today. Ha ha

    Are you hinting that a man may lie to look good/big in front of a woman ? And a woman may wear make up to lure a chap ?

    If so I guess lies are worse as they contain un truths, showing off doing a Tarzan impersonation may be better but these days its hard to get the swim costume !!!

    Make up nar thats not the same. As said its a good ego booster, many women like to be admired and why not. Thats ok in my book. I guess if make up is worn just to attract and then once you have a partner you never wear it again then hmmmmmmm YES. Thats lying. Ha ha Joke.


  10. I'll help around the house. But I'll designate tasks. I'll clean the main room, I'll help with the homework, I will NEVER DEAL WITH BABY POO ever!!


    I will do all the outdoor "man" work!

    Aw and when they get off the loo all proud that they are off a potty and they shout "at the top of their voice". Please will you wipe my bottom Daddy.

    Bet you will not mind poo then. Ha ha .

  11. I breast fed, but for just a few months and we "pumped" regularly so my husband could share in the feeding. Feeding offers such a wonderful bonding time. I would encourage Dads to participate!


    Lucky Lady has a money fairy!! I'd sure love one of those ;)

    He he yes feeding time is amazing isn it and a couple of months breast feeding is amazng too blooming well done getting more and more rare over here. The more chaps get involved in the nitty gritty the better.

    All part of bonding as well. Im pretty close to my daughter 14. and son 6. Both get lots of cuddles and when that happens any relationship un compatabillities are insignificant

    Hmmm the money fairy has been usefull this Summer break ! I played on my sailing boat with Henry whilst the Females went to Rome....to help with the school project. Venice......... Hmmmmm another school project ! And the last two days London on our doorstep... Forget what that was for. But hey has to be some benefits to havn an older Daddy ha ha .

    Half blood prince. Ooooooooo if said wife is at home caring for the children, makin your meals, keeping the house clean, Dont always expect her to be at her best. Its a big job they have !! Depends of course if family help.

    Take care. Col ....

  12. I have shared my discovery of the site with a couple family members and ladies at church.


    @rookiepilot, I would totally hand out wristbands!!


    Now as far as sharing with my SO... I guess I'll cross that bridge when I get to it. In a crazy sort of way I view this site as MY support system and I share some honest, personal things here. With that being said, it would be a wonderful way for my SO to see another facet of me. So eventually, probably, yes.



    Hey interesting isn it. If someone read my posts and opinions on here then my beliefs wishes and wants are pretty much on the table so hey it could all be part of courtship. He he

    Happy Saturday all xx
