    Love Should Be Unconditional

    I look for love, like everyone else. And like everyone else, I have my tastes, my likes and dislikes. I search for someone I can talk to, and be myself around. Someone who gives themselves without boundaries or limits, just as I do. I want someone who will be a true friend, as...

    Laughs As He Reads This

     Well, my first wife was the same age as my Mom and the next to last wife was the same age as my son so I've explored both extremes and it's more the person than the age.  Although, there are limits, legal limits.
