I'm a retired electronics engineer, who is friendly, reliable, and mild mannered. I'm into hiking, canoeing, birding, and wildlife photography. I enjoy listening to classical music, and reading. I'll read almost anything, but lately, it's been historical novels. I write some poetry, but generally only for my own entertainment, and I'll never claim to write good poetry (see below). When I'm tense, I fire up my forge, and do some blacksmithing. Hammering on red hot steel is almost as good a stress reliever as is cuddling. I live on 4-1/2 acres of woods that I'm restoring to a natural condition. The work is brutal, but it keeps me young.
The reason that I (as a married man) am here, is that sadly, my wife suffers from Alzheimer's Disease, and completely rejects all physical affection. I could ask for her approval to cuddle, but even if she understood and gave her approval, she wouldn't remember it ten minutes later. In the mean time, I find myself totally starved for human touch.
I like to cuddle because it is very relaxing, relieves stress, it makes me feel good. Hopefully, it will do the same for the woman I'm cuddling with.
Whoever you are reading this, it's highly likely that you are very much younger than I am. I assure you that I can cuddle every bit as well as a man half my age. I am far less likely to attempt to violate your boundaries than he is, and I am in need of cuddling just as much as he is.
Just as I hope that you won't use my age as the critical factor in deciding my suitability as a cuddle partner, I will never use your physical appearance as a factor. Be you beautiful or ugly, slim or fat, young or old, I don't care in the slightest. What I do care about, is the quality of what's between your ears. I want to cuddle with a woman who can carry on a reasonably intelligent conversation.
I understand that there are those on CC who will only cuddle with those share their political views, so I'll make it easy for you. I've read that people tend to get more conservative as they grow older, but I guess that I'm not typical. In my younger days, I was a fiscal conservative, and a social liberal. Today, I would call myself a fiscal liberal, and a social progressive.
I consider myself to be more than just open minded. Meeting with a woman who shares my race, views on religion and politics, social background, education, etc. would be nice. Meeting with a woman who does not share those things will broaden my horizons, and might be even nicer.
From reading the forums, I understand that there more than just a few men on the site who are looking for something more than just a platonic cuddle. I assure you, that I am not one of them. Before any cuddle session, I will be certain that I understand your boundaries, and I will respect them
I am fully Covid vaccinated and and boosted.
I decided to write a poem to express my feelings about cuddling. I did say that I write poetry. but I never claimed that I write good poetry ;)
To cuddle, to touch is to be alive.
Without touch we lose a bit of life.
In touching another, we can thrive.
That touch mitigates all our strife.
To hold another person in my arms.
Or be firmly nestled into theirs.
To be enchanted by their charms,
Shall surely melt away our cares.
Loneliness will most surely vanish.
Our fright and fears will be no more.
All our worries we now can banish.
We can purge the feelings we abhor.
We may be permitted a gentle caress.
But the urge to kiss, we will suppress.*
*I assure you that any kissing that I might actually do, will be limited to a single, very polite peck on the back of your hand ;)
