Enjoys a night out or...a quiet night by the fire. Passionate about life and the world.
A wide array of interests including: golf, cycling, tennis, various other fitness activities, movies, the symphony or other types of concert (music, in general – both listening and playing....not a bad sax player), a night out, good food, dancing (definitely enjoy salsa dancing, though open to many forms shared with a special someone), cooking, a glass of wine, reading, travel, life-long learning and assisting companies with improving their businesses. I actually get paid to turn problems, issues and complexity into simplicity and/or elegance. Successfully doing what I get paid to do is a lot of fun and I enjoy it.
I love my two children dearly and they are wonderful. I made a commitment as a father, I like it and it's well worth it. My direct time with the children is part-time, though I still view my responsibility as a full-time commitment.
LOOKING FOR... Someone that has grown up, yet can still have fun. Sense of humor. Can laugh at herself, a situation (or me) while maintaining a sense of class and style. Intelligent. Confident. Articulate. Honest. Sincere. Kind. Responsible. Athletically inclined. Appearance matters to a degree, though the inner person is the key. Enjoys a night out or some time for just the two of us in. She appreciates her ability to be independent and appreciates the independent part of herself. Knows herself and is true to herself. Capable of being a great friend and has some friends. Can communicate and be open (great 2-way communication is one of the key attributes to a successful long-term relationship, in my opinion).
Does not sleepwalk through life. Passionate (in the typical sense and a more holistic sense regarding the world around us). Likes the concept of romance. She appreciates the "arts" in a broad sense, yet can also appreciate the "sciences". Takes time to "smell the roses" and truly appreciates that time with all five senses.
OTHER THOUGHTS: It’s pretty easy to enjoy nice things, a great bottle of wine, the symphony, dancing, quiet jazz, live alternative music that you FEEL in your chest and head, resorts, beautiful artwork, the theater, etc... I like these things too...most people do.
The question I have for you is...can you have a great time with that special person in your life after you’ve been caught in the rain near a truck-stop (or something similar)? Maybe that special person in your life is helping someone fix a tire at that truck-stop. How do you feel now? It’s not a fancy dinner... it’s the rest of the world, he's a real guy and he’s not dressed in formal attire (though he still looks pretty darn cute changing that tire!).
In my mind, it’s not about how things are going when you’re in the best of places experiencing the best of things...that’s easy. Instead, it’s about the person and the connection that the two of you have...in the real world...in a real relationship. By the way, that truck stop serves a great piece of chocolate cake.
