Who I am: A gentleman, art and music lover with some fine-tuned culinary skills. I can do things in the kitchen that will blow your mind. (mind out of the gutter...then again feel free to take it there). Above all I'm loyal, hard working and genuinely caring.
I have a daughter who lives out of the country; that has helped me master the art of skyping. She is my heart and the reason I get up every morning. With all this good stuff in my life and seemingly not being crazy or otherwise hindered, you may ask why am I single? (damn if I haven't been asking myself that same question lately) The BS answer: I haven't met the right person.
The real one: I have been putting in crazy hours getting an investment portfolio together and realize it takes a certain level of deep interest and commitment to pry me away from my all work and no play mantra. I meet people all the time but pitted against my work load, seminars and viewing properties I'm all but done.
I originally got on here because I wasn't enjoying the club scene or the hookup culture that seems to surround it. Truth be told I've arrived at the point in my life where I have absolutely no interest in purely physical intimacy. I have a depth of spirit, an intellectual curiosity and a strong set of values that guide me.
Who I want: A lady with strong morals who lives by them. A partner in fun; someone with a sense of adventure and a sense of humor. A hard worker, with a kind heart and an open nature. Now I don't expect to be share everything about ourselves in hour number one but it would be nice if our dates don't suck too much; that we get to share a story or two.
Aside from that... be available. No friends with benefits or f buddies that you just cant let go until you know for sure you're in love. (I don't think that's the way it works) No crazy exes that you're holding out hope of getting back with as soon as they get out of jail. No live in ex-boyfriends turned room mates that are increasingly jealous of your relationships. I'm joking but seriously I'm coming into this with the hope of meeting someone with good intentions who knows who they are and what they want.
