I have been told by others that I am a kind-hearted and caring person. I am self-assured, but not afraid to show emotion. I get along well with others, and respectful of others ideas and thoughts. I enjoy great conversations on just about any issue, as my interests are varied. I have been told that I am good listener, which can be unusual...for a guy. :) I consider myself humble, but have to talk about myself here. Not very humble.
Just like everyone, I enjoy a good laugh and can be both witty (with a touch of sarcasm, but not in a hurtful way) and serious. I am affectionate, but not smothering. I consider myself flexible, and understand the need for my partner to have your own friends and interests, but if you prefer it was just us, I am certainly fine with that too.
I have two great kids. One off to college, and the other in junior high.
I am hoping to meet some great people here to spend some fun times together with the ultimate goal of a long term one person relationship. I look forward to sharing time together whether that is cooking a meal together with a glass of wine, going out to a community event, a day trip to nearby town or city, or an extended vacation to the lake, mountains, or oceans. I have relatives in Colorado, and always love going to the mountains there. I am not a big bar scene person, but I am willing to go to spend time with friends or someone special.
I am varied in my interests, because I enjoy learning new things. I enjoy learning about other cultures. I like to visit historical sites, state parks, the bluff country along the Mississippi River. (I spent part of my childhood there.) I also enjoy the Duluth area and the North Shore, and have a passion for visiting lighthouses. I enjoy experiencing new places, and especially going outdoors on hikes or walks and seeing the beauty and quiet of landscape, plants and animals. I enjoy trying new foods, especially ethnic foods. I would like to get back into golf but could use a coach.
I try to volunteer in the community to give back. I especially like to volunteer with organizations that make an impact on young people.
I listen to a wide variety of music, except maybe "rap." Everything from Rascal Flatts to Shinedown. I read many different genres of books and articles.
I wish you well in your search for that someone special.
