Fit and active, even allowing for a strong lazy streak. Some baggage but it fits under the seat, doesn't need the overhead bin - and if we didn't have some baggage we would have been standing still all of our lives, wouldn't we? Financially stable. Clever enough to pass for mature most of the time. Honest. Monogamous. Loyal. Devoted. Smart but not always wise. More trusting than might be wise.
Getting to a partnership is the goal. Touch and the journey rather than the ending are the reward. Very easy to talk with and I will be your biggest fan and supporter, without question or reserve. Talk is the best aphrodisiac. Candles and massage and exploration, devotion and always the quiet reassurance of absolute, unquestioned, and unquestioning love.
I am a gentleman. If you don't understand that a gentleman opens doors for ladies out of respect we might not get along as well as we could. Give me a topic that I know at least a little about, a microphone, and a room of 500 people but, better, let me share time with one special person doing absolutely nothing that somehow feels like everything.
Yes, I like to hold hands, walk in the moonlight, ride a bike in the daylight, play golf, tennis, billiards, even bowl, or watch a black-and-white movie just to sit side-by-side and toss popcorn at each other's mouth, take hot showers alone or better together, just because it's fun. I have a low sense of modesty and touch is very, very important along with everything it leads to.
I get dirty with yard work, but don't like it - the yard work; I don't mind the dirt. I don't hunt and never learned to fish but love the water in my pool or at the beach. And, really, the key isn't what it is that you are doing with your special person, your partner, it is that you are still making and protecting the time to be together even in the face of the numbing crush of just everyday life. I lean toward traditional family roles and have no trouble taking charge in a relationship and follow through like a gentleman.
A real partnership should be interdependent, not dependent nor independent. Traditional partner roles are a starting point. A woman to treasure and protect should be modestly proud of feeling that she is attractive, in all ways, should speak her mind without being cruelly honest, and know when nurturing and compassion are the only medicine necessary. She must believe, and act, that love is forever and strengthened in understanding and forgiving the little things. She understands that "the finer things" in life don't require an American Express card. She is smart, with her own life, and yet has a gap that I can fill, just as she will fill mine.
And, we should agree that golf is the greatest game ever invented, Les Miserables is the greatest novel ever written, and kissing is the most INTIMATE thing that two people can do! :-)
And, I am four years older than my public-facing age - at least chronologically if certainly not behaviorally. The brief introductions we have here are all about marketing so I hope you will forgive the nudge to you to stop by and read a bit. I am disgustingly healthy without being a 'nut' about it; and, I have fantastic 'age genes' in the family to rely on.
