Are You The Woman That Knocks My Socks Off ??

Wanted !!

A woman to share my life with !!

separator

I visited Al’s blog last night who is having problems with dating agencies. I don’t do dating agencies. We have both decided to ask our blogging friends if there are any women amongst us who are looking for a serious relationship with either of us.

So I’ll put my cards on the table and will give you a link to my friend’s blog at the end of this post

Name: ย Ralph

About myself

What to say ?ย  My life story ? Just quickly. All my closest family, mother, father, sister are dead. I have been married twice. The first, for 14 years. I have two daughters who I am not in touch with ….. it’s complicated, but not an issue.ย  Divorced. Married again for one year, both of us married on the rebound, that didn’t work. I have been single for 24+ years living with a female companion who died of cancer 2 years ago. The release of caring for her made my hands vibrate, so I can’t do anything much with them. I am being treated for the problem and hopefully get cured.

I am okay financially, two pensions and savings. I have 3Mb wifi which we both can use.ย  Also English Sky TV,ย  Internet TVย  and Spanish TV.ย  I don’t watch much, Formula One, Sci-fi and the news occasionally.

I am house trained ie. sweep, wash dishes etc.

cats

I have two 10 year old cats who have been with me all their lives. Also many local friends who are very supportive and I think, deep down, they would like to see me in a relationship and in love. I don’t drive as the soles of my feet are very sensitive. I gave my car away. I smoke, never indoors (well, a man must have at least one vice). I love blogging, am taking up photography and video.

Maybe it’s an idea if you watch the three videos RV 1,2 &3 of me in previous posts.

separator

About you

Any nationality considered. Age ? I don’t know.ย  20+ ?ย  You would have to be willing to live in Spain.ย  I would prefer you not being too rowdy, messy, overpowering and argumentative. Easy going would be nice, who can gel with my local friends of many nationalities (which means, as a couple, there will be more party invitations ๐Ÿ˜€ ). I am not looking for a cook, caregiver or slave. If you like doing those things, great, but really just someone to share my life with. A driver would be nice. which means buying a car to go out and about, as there is a lot to do and see.

You would have to consider what you have now, as it would be a big step for you to take.

If you like country life, a new start, me (which helps) contact me. I won’t bite (nibble maybe ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

I am willing to compromise ie. if you want to change me or things around at home, share everything. Whatever !!

Can you “Knock my socks off !!” I bet you can !! โค

separator

To my blogging friends

Most of you are married or have partners. Although I love you all, please don’t uproot and come-a-running. I would love you to put your thinking caps on, as maybe you have a friend,ย a desperate friend, or a mad enough big sister who is alone and may be willing to take a big step with me. It’s a big step FOR me as well. Perhaps you are a single female blogger looking for love.ย  If by some miracle I do pair up with you, my dream gal, then I would of course have to tone down my blog (no more flirting behind the bike sheds of Bluefish Way). All say, “Oh no !!” ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

I live in the railway station village close by

So, Princess, are you going to contact me ??ย  โค

I need a cuddle !!

    • Hi Yvonne ๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you so much for your lovely comment, especially :-

      “Come on ladies, donโ€™t miss this golden opportunity!”

      Initially I did this to help Al, who I feel is really desperate for company. I was 50/50 at the time of engineering this post. I am happy with my own company and at the same time it would be nice to have a wife or partner around to do things together. As the draft grew the 50/50 changed to 100% in favour of female company.

      I am sure that WP is full of single women feeling the same way. Even the few I know in WP are great, but most blogging friends are married or have ties to family and friends where they live. I can’t and don’t want to move. The cats are a tie. The housing market is dead here. And I love the area and friends I have.

      It’s early days yet with this post. See what happens. No nibbles yet …… not even on my earlobe ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hugs my friend. Ralph xox โค

  32. Hi Ralph, I had a lot of laughs with this one. Not because I don’t think you deserve happiness, I really do and I think you portrayed your gentle/sensitive side a lot more, which was refreshing to hear. I laughed at argumentative – You wouldn’t want a woman to lie down and take it now, would you! I meant that in an innocent way. I really hope you find the one. I am happily single at the moment and if I was in a relationship, I am controversially a Cougar, I like guys who are about ten years younger that me, or less, so that would be no good. Al is a great guy and I am good friends with him, he is a very kind, sensitive and caring guy, one of the best in fact.

      “You wouldnโ€™t want a woman to lie down and take it now, would you! I meant that in an innocent way.” Of course you did !! Like heck ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Fantastic !! So you’re a Cougar ! I’ve had the pleasure of knowing (in the biblical sense) a few Cougars when I was young, single and in the Army. I hope you are having fun my friend ๐Ÿ˜€
      Thanks for making my day and bringing back a memory or thirteen. Hugs. Ralph xox โค

      • I meant that if a woman agreed with everything you said and did not stick up for what she believes, you would be bored with her. I think guys like a woman with a backbone.I did know you would take it that way though. I am having too much fun being single at the moment, but yes, I have no shame in being a cougar. I went out clubbing with my work colleagues the other day and the older ones, (really younger ones) had all left by around 1.30am, I stayed there dancing on my own until 3am when the music stopped playing. I love being young for my age. Age is a state of mind anyway. I am 28 again next week.

  35. Dear Ralph,
    You have absolutely NO idea of how much this post found me in the perfectest (I think I just invented this word ๐Ÿ™‚ ) of moments. I have been grumpy and sort of down the entire day, which is so not like me; I realized that I am simply in dire need of a man to share my life with. YES, right this moment I long for a hug and a cuddle!!!!!! So your post did two things: First, I realized that I am not alone with this feeling, and second, you made me laugh with remarks like “I am house trained ie. sweep, wash dishes etc.”. Do you also cook? I hate cooking but I love eating!
    A few months ago I met a 66-year-old (I generally would prefer someone younger, I’m 52, but if I fall in love with the personality, age becomes less important) wonderful person who fell in love with me. We began spending time together, going to the movies, to the beach, eating out… (no sex yet, although I wouldn’t have said no.). I loved every minute with him. Gradually, I realized and he told me, that he has lots of problems with himself and an immense fear of failure (mainly sexual). In the end, he retreated back into his shell. It had been obvious that he was struggling with himself. He said he hasn’t been in a relationship for over two years and that he has given up on the idea.

    My life is in Israel (although part of my family lives in Germany) and I don’t want to move away from here….
    See you soon.
    HUGS!!!!

    • Hello dear Heila,
      Wow. You really did pour you heart out. I am so glad that this post cheered you up a bit as there is nothing worse than being grumpy and down. Luckily I never get down. Having fun, especially here, helps. Are you seeing him again ? It’s impossible for a man to fake an erection, so I understand his concerns. Although I have not been with a woman for 20+ years I don’t have that problem. I just can’t wait to do it again. But I will not pay for it, if you know what I mean ๐Ÿ˜€
      Of course you must stay in the place you love. The same with me really as I own my apartment and I couldn’t sell it even if I wanted to as the housing market is dead here in Spain. Nothing selling. I also have my cats that need their dad.
      2 and 1/2 moths to go before I arrive in Israel. I can’t wait to see your country and you my friend.
      I hope your Easter weekend improves Heila.
      BTW I have joined a local online dating website yesterday. Had 6 views but no contact as yet. Have a look.
