I am a widowed professional living in the Helsinki metropolitan area. My children are adults and live on their own.
I am seeking a genuine and good-hearted woman who is willing to seek a happy, mutually satisfactory life with me.
First things almost first. If you are not fluent in English (= you speak it well) there is no point in writing to me. We cannot communicate and so I will not even try. We have no time to spend two years on intensive language studies.
I like classical music, I read a lot. I enjoy architecture, history and outdoor life. I do not hunt but I like to collect mushrooms and berries, I am into birdwatching and walks in the forest. Fishing is a good pastime. I can cook well in other peoples opinion, too.
I like to travel but do not want to do it excessively. Bicycle tours are a nice way to learn about new (and familiar) places.
I will try to give my heart to you and I hope you try it, too.
Probably I am not a really great catch but not a horrible one either Women looking for a hardbody Adonis should contact somebody else. The interesting things about me are mostly inside of my head.
Ideal match description:
I am looking for a serious but funny, good-hearted but not light-minded, independent but not cold and abusive woman who is ready to commit to a relationship and try to make it work. It is not always easy but good things do not come always just automatically.
Curiosity about life and our world in general, a sense of humor, commitment to the relationship, willingness and ability to compromise, and a positive attitude are big turn-ons.
I am not looking for a housewife. I am looking for a woman with a professional life of her own. I'm not looking for young girls but for an adult woman.
Similarly, communication is essential. In my case it means ability to communicate in English, German, Swedish or Finnish. And communication is more than short simple sentences, we really must be able to discuss about nearly everything - and at the beginning a lot about us. If you cannot read, write and - especially - speak well some of the 4 languages mentioned above please do not write to me. We would be only wasting the time of both of us. Please do not lie to me about your language skills. Trust is essential and betrayal of trust at the beginning of the relationship makes everything impossible.
I only can hope that I am not asking too much.
My languages skills:
English: I am advanced in every skill German: I am advanced in every skill Swedish: I am advanced in every skill
