So here goes... I've been divorced for 7 years.
I have a 19-year-old son who lives in Gulf Shores, AL and I disappear from time to time to visit with him. We play a lot of golf together.
Dukedog9 is a tribute to my border collie/black lab named Duke who passed away.
I like intelligent women, humor, theater in all forms, big cities, museums, quiet moments, Alfred Hitchcock movies, great books, playing golf and tennis, working out, sailing, romance, good friends, good bourbon, and good wine. For music I like classic rock, jazz, bluegrass, blues, country, show tunes, Gregorian Chants, and classical guitar and piano.
I've been cooking for over 40 years and I'm pretty good at it. I learned to cook Italian dishes in Naples, Italy.
I don't drink often or very much because there's just no upside to it anymore.
I am an "Officer and a Gentleman", but we may have to compromise a little if you want me to come into your work and carry you off in my Dress Whites. No matter how hard I try, its just not that romantic using a fireman's carry.
My Ideal Match will:
Be at least one year out from her last serious relationship.
Have clear goals and have focus in her life.
Be pretty, and witty, and bright! And feel pity, for any girl who isn't her tonight!
Be quietly, but firmly, spiritual.
Know her own mind, talents, emotions, and foibles - and loves herself anyway.
Be open to a healthier lifestyle that includes less junk food, packaged food, and fast food.
Be willing to share her kitchen and cook with me.
Be active and enjoy exercise.
Be willing to meet me in the middle.
