I am well traveled, speak four languages, enjoy music, art and cuisine from around the world.
I am a good dancer, very good at hiking, love the beach and trying new places to eat. In relationships I am loving, caring and passionate. I don't have a fear of commitment and am very loyal when there is a commitment.
I am close to my family, have a strong group of friends that have been around for years and enjoy socializing.
I have a witty sense of humor, a keen sense of observation, very good long distance eye sight and sense of smell and sound.
I stay fit, eat well, and find ways to minimize stress in my life. I am easy going as a person but still disciplined in my professional life to achieve my goals. I am an effective public speaker and enjoy sharing stories with friends and family in social settings.
If you are wondering why a guy with my qualities is still unattached let me just say that it is hard to find my match in my workplace or social circles. Quite often when I think I have met one they talk the talk but are incapable of walking the walk because of relationship baggage from the past that even Southwest Airlines refuses to fly free :-)
My hope is that by placing this honest and direct profile here on Ok Cupid an intelligent, caring, passionate woman with self pride and a desire to meet a special guy in her vicinity will write to me and explore a wonderful journey with me as a friend, a lover and eventually a long term commitment.
I am open to having one or more kids if my partner can. If not, I am willing to mentor her kids in a long term relationship. At 49 you have to be open minded about such things to find a true life companion. :-)
