Thanks for the little about yourself, now its my turn. I am from Italy and I lost my wife 4 years ago, No Kids and my both parents are gone..I have been single and alone since then. I think this is my time to move on. I can cook, clean, make my own bed well when I feel like it, Though all offers are welcome LOL. I am 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 have got a soft spot for intelligent and cute woman with opinions of their own; good looks are a bonus. Above all you must have a good sense of humor, Whilst I have my serious side, I tend to see the lighter and funnier side of life I love the beach, sailing, Love to go out to nice restaurants; am easy going, I could go anywhere at anytime and make it fun. I enjoy dancing to country music especially if I find a good companion to dance with, please note that you must laugh at all my jokes!! I consider myself a sincere man, very easy going, kindhearted, intelligent, hard working, loyal, understanding, creative woman that places spirituality as an important part of my life...LOL, honest and open. I can also be funny and I have a quick wit as well, I am a happy person, responsible, honest, considerate, caring,sincere, serious and have a good sense of humor. I am looking for a woman to possibly develop a relationship with. I am a Marine Engineer, I work with a Shipping Line here in the UK, I do enjoy my job though risky because we are always on the high sea. Am 50 years old, My birthday is 25/11/1962. I think this is all for now! Can you tell me more about yourself; your like and dislike? What are your hobbies? What do you do for a living? How old are you? Have a wonderful day ahead...Look forward to hear from you soon.

I was so much excited to read your mail and thanks so much for taking your time to write me, I am confident you are in good health. Honestly there is so much I want to tell you and so many things I want to ask you, I don't know where to start, I am new at this on line relationship thing so please understand if I am a little awkward at it. I am writing this message to you not for the fun of it, but because I want you to take some time for yourself and read carefully. Let me start by saying that I thank God that we met, as you may have known, the fountain of any relationship must spring up in the mind. It is very important for me to express to you how much you really mean to me. I wish I could do this in person while gazing into your eyes, but since we are physically separated by miles of emptiness, this expression must come in the form of letters such as this. To me, you are first of all my friend and then...... something more greater in the near future.....God willing. To be honest with you, I am really short of words here, but one thing I do know is that I have the arms to give you a hug, ears to listen to whatever you want to talk about through chat, mail or phone, and I have a heart; a heart that is aching to see your smile. I would like to use this opportunity to say...I am delighted to have met you. To tell you more about me, I am an honest, kindhearted, hardworking man who does need the support of a loving woman. Ideally, I am someone who is confident in what he want and who he is, We all face tough situations in our lives and we sometimes tend to be mislead by it. A lot of times we often tend to give up. In this life, I have chosen to give up numerous times but I am proud to say that I have also chosen to stay strong and be patient all these years..... which has now led to my finding you. He who seek happiness; they say, by changing anything but his own disposition will waste his life in fruitless efforts and multiply the grief which he purposes to remove. Your living is determined not so much by what life brings you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens. This is the reason I have decided to move on in life in spite of my incalculable loss. Yes! Distance doesn't permit the action to be seen, rather words convey the feelings when distance hinders. No matter the distance that separates us now, I can assure you that this gap will be bridged as we really get to know each other, as the saying goes: "True Love and Friendship knows no boundaries and no distance; miles and obstacles means absolutely nothing in the face of love" Though miles may lie between us right now, we'll never be apart forever, for friendship doesn't count the miles, it's measured by the heart and I can relocate for that special someone! Now that dishonesty and disbelieve seems to be taking over our souls these days, to know there are people like you makes all the problems look smaller. It’s great to be your friend and to be able to look into the future and see a mix of serenity and hope. This fairly recent friendship is something I consider to be sacred already. It makes me have faith again in some simple but fundamental human values which sometimes; for the lack of practice we swipe under the carpets of our memories and of our hearts. For me this new friendship is precious and that’s why I intend to keep it till the end of my days. I believe we can achieve that, because I have faith in you and I have more and more faith in life and in the future. Those who have a friend like you fear nothing, Always bear in mind that my affection and true friendship will be yours forever. Here are some of my pics and I do hope you will like them and do send me yours too if possible...My job will be taking me to Australia by tomorrow (Sailing for a month....) and we can still communicate on FB as I sail so we can get to know each other better! Have a wonderful day ahead! Look forward to hear from you soon

Thanks for the note and the compliment regards my photo, you look cute and gorgeous in your photos too.. We are sailing very smoothly and now in South Atlantic Ocean. Kind of you to share your past relationship with me and I am glad that you are ready to move on, loneliness is not what we need at this stage in life. My wife was a beautiful, Intelligent, caring, humorous, romantic and my soul mate. She passed away much too young and my heart was broken for years, time does heal a broken heart but I will never forget her. I did have a relationship with a stylish cute woman a few years after my Wife's death, She was a good friend and companion to me but my heartstrings were not tugged as much as I may have wanted. That being said am new to this online relationship and am ready to meet a very special woman who can pull on my heartstrings and make my heart skip a beat every time I see her. I do think an individual can love more than once and feel all the emotions that love can bring. I feel that I am ready to move on with that special someone and hopefully we will meet sometime soon. There is nothing better than to share the joys and even sorrows of life with a partner who can love you and be loved in return. You like exploring new places, which other country have you been to ? I have been to Greece, Ireland and tour Italy many times. I attend church regularly on Sundays if am around. Do you go to church at all? How do you always spend your day and what do you do with your free time? Wish you a wonderful week end. Look forward to hear from you soon.
Hugs and Kisses

Its so wonderful to hear from you, hope you are having a good time. How is your daughter in-law and hope she deliver safely! If today a smile should appear on your face, it's because at this very minute, I am thinking of you and I am smiling too. I do not know how to express the conflicting emotions that have surged like a storm through my heart after reading your email. My heart has been illuminated by the radiance of your smile and constantly keeps beating as long as your mine. I can’t explain this feeling I must be dreaming or simply touched by an angel. Ever since I started communicating with you I do wake up every morning with a smile on my face hoping that one day you ll be right by my side and in my heart forever. You’ve changed my world in the blink of an eye. I am here with open arms where you will some day finally arrive..LOL....I like to be 100% well dressed and looked great as an Italian man. It has been so long since a woman has captured my attention so fully or made my heart beat the way it did. Anyway we will have to take it one day at a time. Have a wonderful day ahead, look forward to hear from you soon.
Hugs and Kisses

My Dearest, I have been trying to get across to you since and I am still trying to get access to internet since I sent my last message, our communication systems has a transmission problem, I want to thank you so much for your love and concern you have shown at this time. I thank God everyday for bringing us together as one family. My darling whatever situation I found myself I always give glory to God. The situation here is getting worse and we've done all we could to put the brain box of the ship in order but to no avail and beside we just received information from the Signal unit that there are some sea pirates blocking the sea. They are about 312 KM away from us and the nearest place for this Ship to anchor is an Island somewhere in South Asia. As it is now, we are no longer safe because we are all terrified and afraid of the Sea pirates attack because the ship is moving at a very slow pace now. Our captain has called for a rescue team to help convey the nu-insured goods in the ship but we are yet to get a response from our headquarters.

Our captain here in the Ship has equally announced that all crew members should offload their personal properties for any other means of transportation as the Ship will dock in a safe Island for someday until it's safe for us to continue sailing. Honey my problem now is my money (£450,000) British pounds (Four Hundred and Fifty thousand pounds) which I kept in my cabin safe box and my vital contract document, I do not want it stolen from me in the event of any attack. My plan was to use this money to buy Metal oil barrel from Australia and supply to the company in Mexico I already had contract agreement with. Honey, as the Director of Operation in this Ship, it’s not possible for me to leave the ship because I have to take care of this ship until all GOODS/PRODUCT is completely discharged
