Good quote that I believe in:
Being MALE is a matter of birth,
Being a MAN is a matter of age,
Being a GENTLEMAN is a matter of choice.
Hi, I'm a divorced father of a wonderful girl, thirteen years old, who lives with me. I'm open to dating a woman that already has children, her own or adopted and lives within the northern VA or nearby MD/DC area. You should be comfortable in your own skin as I am in mine and be looking for a relationship with a guy who A) is at ease with himself and how he treats others and B) want to do things that are fun to do together, whether at home or the other side of the world . You should be plus or minus my age by ten years as it's important that we both like and enjoy the same things and at the same stage in life.
I like being outside more than in my own home. I'm usually taking day trips on the weekends and I'm out with friends or on a date at night if not staying in and making it a quiet night. Spring's here and last year at this time it was a trip up to PA to the Amish area and then over to NYC to see the sights and Mary Poppins on Broadway.
I like eating healthy, don't smoke, not a beer drinker unless you put one in my hand, and enjoy a good wine with a great dinner. Different ethnic restaurants are great and going to see a show or an event is always fun -- comedy clubs, dinner theaters, wine tastings, or just enjoying a fire pit and talking or staying in and watching a DVD or TV.
I have a career with the government and currently with the Department of Justice. Originally from the DC area. I'm not political and I accept people as they are and enjoy other cultures as I've experienced a lot over the years.
Traveling is one of my loves -- as I've been the following places over the years -- Japan (lived and worked there for five years), Peru (Lima, Cuzco, Macchu Picchu), Bolivia (La Paz), Mexico (Guadalajara, Mexico City, Ciudad Juarez), Honduras (Tegucigalpa), Costa Rica (San Jose), Colombia (Bogota), Philippines (Manila, Cebu, Bohol, Cagayan de Oro, and Iligan City), Trinidad/Tobago (Port-of-Spain), Thailand (Bangkok), Haiti(Port-au-Prince), Spain (Madrid), Germany (Frankfurt, Saarbrucken), England (London), Indonesia (Jakarta), and Egypt (Cairo). And there are still a lot of places I want to go. Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Italy, Switzerland, and Denmark top the list.
Finally, I do have the OKCupid app on my phone, so it looks like I'm on a lot but I'm not. Just the phone is on and I didn't exit the app.
