Hello Sweetheart,

I am happy reading from you, how are you and how is life with you? I am Mark by name and I am a Military Personnel . I am 52yrs old of age, I am back to a Single loving man, I lost my Wife 5yrs back, she died of Cancer.

I work for the United Nations Military (UN), I am in the Defense Department. I am presently in Afghanistan, Victory Camp. Life here is a risk, but I always tell people that there is no extent that I can’t go to, in serving and protecting my world from violence. And the Almighty God that is been protecting me for the past 24years now in the Military, surely he will guide me through the little time I got more in the Military.

I am at my retirement Age now, and I can at any time process my retirement, which won’t take me more than few months to process. I only have some few more Special assignments to carry out, after which I will be finally due for my retirement, Actually, I am not totally filled with the joy of me been getting closer to my retirement stage in the Military, because, I don’t have a loving Woman to be with when I am off from this place, which was what brought me to the dating site, trying my luck to see if I’ll be so lucky to meet a True Loving Hearted Woman whom I can spend the rest of my life with. I hope and pray that with you I won’t have to search anymore.

I don’t really have much photos here that I can send to you at the Moment, but I hope my profile picture on the Site will make you have a little idea of whom I am, and I also have one or two photos on the computer here that I will send to you in attachment to this mail, so you can have some more idea on how I look like. There are not many chances for us to be taking photos here and also there are protocols here which are strictly followed, much of cautiousness to be followed so as not to get fined over violation of the Military Law. I do hope you can understand me better.

I will really love to start a good communication with you, and also see what life got to offer us both. The fact that I am busy with work here does not mean that I am not ready to start a new life with a happy loving woman, more so that I am now approaching my retirement level. So I am really interested in meeting a woman that I can start communication with, love sincerely, adore, appreciate, care for, and then meet in person as soon as I get done with Job here.

Here in the Military, We do get access to the internet at the Radar room and central control room.

I will be hoping to hear back from you soon, and I’ll love to see more of your photos.

With all heart filled with true Love and Kisses for you
Lots of Love

I think it’s great to have you as friend....really I am short of words cos I don't really know how to express my feelings to you,don't get me wrong...I am just trying to pour out my mind that I appreciate,and value you so much,here is my hand, you have the other, put them together and we have each other thou Closeness isn't always measured in distance; friends can live many miles away, but the bond of love formed long ago always keeps them close at heart but It takes a lot of understanding, time and trust to gain a close friendship with someone. As I approach a time of my life of complete uncertainty, my friends are my most precious assets
Really I understand that appearance is an image we all see each other as. To really care for, like, or have love for another is to know who they are in the inside. You can't care, like or love someone just by their outside appearance; it's what's inside that really matters. Will you permit me to explore my hearts unto you.

I am really a sincere and honest person. am caring,kind,friendly very easy to get along with am,social,romantic,,intelligent,cool headed,adaptive,have a big heart and I do believe in the truth and honesty..Cause honesty is the only key to human success and with honesty..Our dreams will just be the greatest and the best of all..I know it’s hard to be completely honest...but I try to be who I am and do what I know how to do best. no one really can change who i am or my personality cause I believe in myself and my life is based on truth and it’s all about who I really am..Cause I know the kind of person I am and they way I treat others really do care a lot about others who care for me..Cause I am a very caring person and my heart is so blessed and lovely..

As a matter of fact will really like to know more about you and your motives and intentions getting to know my kind of person...Cause my intentions is to get to know you, and really do know ur kind of person and build up a relationship with you and hopeful meet in person..cause its one of my policy that every one i do meet i try to make them completely honest and happy cause i hate to make people feel bad..Cause i really do believe that everyone should at least be given a great chance to smile and share their feelings to each other.

I am really looking for a woman who's completely honest and sincere about her words and feelings that’s ready for a long term relationship. Who’s ready to build up a family with someone real...I want a woman whom I know I can have faith and completely trust with all my heart..Cause to make a standard relationship it must really be based on trust. Love and trust are one big family and with both...a relationship will be the greatest u ever imagine....well..i believe in devoting my time to my loved once and making them real happy..cause they are my own families.

This is bit about my personality which i would like to tell you..i like to listen to music and i like to swim, camp, shop and read and even dance too..Music is really part of my life and I cant do without listening to music in a day..And my kind of music is R n B and a bit of jazz and oldies. I also love walking on the beach holding hands with my love one...this are the things I do whenever I'm free and they really keep me on.

I am 5'11 tall average body. Well..i will really love to hear more from you and hopefully get to know your motives and intentions towards me, cause i really would want to work towards getting to meet you in person so as to know what's next. I'm a very straight forward person and I always set my priorities right. My arms and objective of coming to the dating site is to get a loving woman that we can both build a lovely relationship and live the rest of ourselves together in peace.

I will be waiting to read back from you and I'm sure you really understand my intentions towards you. Do have a lovely day and take good care of yourself and say hi to everyone over there and tell them a loving man is coming to your life soon lol..maybe/maybe not it depends on your faith and the truth of your heart towards me I will look for your next email and hopeful you will be able to tell me more about you and let’s get to get to know each other in a honest and sincere way.

Kisses and hugs,

Mark .
