I love my life. I make a living at my dream job, (I'm an actor and singer) and have for some 25 years. I have no desire for fame and fortune - OK, a little fortune wouldn't be so bad - I just enjoy doing what I do. I mostly do live theatre of all kinds, but between shows, I do all kinds of actor odd-jobs (commercials, voiceovers, trade shows, corporate training, etc.) I don't make a lot of money, but I live comfortably and am largely the master of my own schedule.
I do make sacrifices to live on an actor's wages: I drive a used Ferrari, fly coach in my private plane, and bathe in the Chateau Neuf du Pape '28 instead of the '27. Although I won't shower you in diamonds, (wouldn't that hurt anyway?;) I will shower you in praise, love, and positivity. And, hopefully, water. 'Cuz bathing's fairly important.
But I digress. My idea of how to treat a lady is this: like a partner. We are each other's advisor, protector, playmate and friend. And we find each other very attractive. I consider myself a gentleman and a feminist, and I see absolutely no conflict between those terms.
I come from a fairly small family, but we're spread out all over the map. However, we get along famously and visit one another whenever possible. (We also sometimes travel together, too.) If you and I spend any appreciable time together, be prepared to meet some of them. And, if you're even half the fan of your own family that I am of mine, I'd love to meet yours as well.
Contrary to what you might expect, though I am quite comfortable on stage or giving speech or something, I'm really not a party person. Let me rephrase that: I'm REALLY not a party person. I am SO much happier having a few friends over, or just being with "the one." I really don't seek to be the center of attention; I get more than enough of that in my work.
I own a tux (a few, oddly enough) but I'm much happier in jeans and my river sandals. I don't need you to wear makeup. If you like wearing it, great. I like it, too. (Be warned, though: I might have more makeup than you do - but for stage use only!;) I like reading, watching movies, sleeping, cuddling and other assorted horizontal activities. I'm not much of a cook, but I enjoy cooking together. I also love eating, probably more than I should. I'm not into watching sports, but extra points for you if you play a decent game of tennis. (I'm always looking for that kind of partner, too.) I'm also learning to appreciate a good tandem walk.
I guess all-in-all, I'm very passionate about my work, but otherwise a fairly laid-back person. I enjoy my life and I'd like to find someone who enjoys hers; we'd just be happier if we could enjoy them both together.
I hope I haven't written too much but said too little. But there it is. Now, I'd like to hear YOUR story.
