Hello, What's the difference between an optimist and a pessimist?
Happy and content 60 year old retired male.
Returned to Sydney after 20 years living down the southcoast of NSW and am slightly bewildered at how much has changed here.While I miss the coastal life, Sydney has so much to offer and though I am fairly independent, it is nicer to have company.
Divorced, but with no residual baggage, I have probably made a few mistakes along the way, but at our age if you haven't made some mistakes, then you really haven't made anything.
Looking for someone to share some of the things this amazing city has to offer,
someone who is independent, has their own interests,but would like to find and share some new ones, as they say,pleasure shared is pleasure doubled. I also like to get into the country now and again either camping (definitely 2**) or staying in a cabin (5*****) bushwalking, fishing or exploring little out of the way places.
Almost forgot, an optimist is someone who believes we live in the "best of all possible worlds" and a pessimist is someone who thinks the optimist just might be right!
