Karen is the woman of my dreams. I met her via the on-line dating agency - Dateline. I well recall our first date at "Old Orleans" pub in Plymouth.

When she smiled her whole face lights up.

How I have survived these past 20 odd years on my own I do not know, if only I could have met her years ago, things would have been so different.

I am content just to be beside here and breathe the same air as she does. For the first time in my life I know the meaning of passion.

I  miss her even if she has gone for 5 mins and I keep looking out of the window for when she returns.

If I have had to wait until I am nearly 50 to find true passionate love then it`s certainly worth the wait.
