I am a single parent of two grown children who are out on their own now.
The nest is now empty and I am free and unencumbered to explore another relationship. I would love to cook a meal here for some woman who might enjoy a man cooking dinner for her.
I am an easy going, sensitive, giving, kind, genuine, sincere, and grounded person trying to live my life in the fullest sense possible. I value integrity, honesty, and sincerity.
I'm looking to meet someone to spend some time with on weekends. Maybe even more time depending on where you live. Just want to go slowly and develop a friendship and see what develops from there.
Looking for someone to get under my skin in a good way and vice versa. :)
I laugh at myself. Often.
I am a hopeless/hopeful romantic that will bring flowers and croon to a woman I am enamored with. I love to sing.
I put the toilet seat down. :)
I was born back east but both parents emigrated here from Italy many years ago. I grew up in a traditional Italian family and strongly identify with that culture.
I have a good sense of humor and can laugh at myself, am very liberal and open minded, enjoy leisurely pursuits, and I am accepting of other peoples lifestyles and unique qualities.
I savor the simple pleasures and small things in life that are important.
Some hobbies and activities I enjoy include: reading, singing karaoke or at a piano bar, bowling, shooting pool, going to the gym, hiking.
I live a healthy lifestyle striving to be complete in body mind and spirit. This includes daily exercise and working out at the gym 6 mornings a week and 4 nights a week. Sunday I shut it down and relax.
I would like to cultivate a friendship with the hope that it may lead to something deeper and meaningful if that is where it is intended to be. All good relationships are grounded there where the strong foundation for a relationship based on trust and honesty is built. I always have to be mindful to maintain balance in this "search" for a potential partner. Part of me wants to be in a serous relationship very much and I just need to be mindful to keep things slow when I want it too quickly. I know that it has to unfold slowly over time.
If it matters at all, I do look much better than the photos posted here. Including the ones I cannot get to go vertical! I guess I am somewhere between a 54 year old Paul Newman and a 45 year old Fred Flintstone. A lot of latitude there. :)
I am down to earth, genuine, sensitive, sincere, grateful, humble, forgiving, accepting, open minded, tolerant, positive, and always hopeful. I am a glass 3/4 full person. My preference in that glass is red wine. :)
I have been told that I have a high emotional iq.
