Do you want the history? I moved out of my Mom's house when I was 14 (life on the mean streets! Maybe not, I was at a state school). I grew up in a factory town, turned into a city kid; moving between London, New York, and San Francisco, with stopovers in LA and Chicago. I live in San Mateo now; in some ways that is better, in some ways worse, but it is an adjustment.
Of course, all that stuff is interesting, but it does not define who I am.
I love and stay close to my family. And my favorite part of the family is my daughter - don't tell the rest of them, they still think they are special. If I meet someone through this site, or anywhere else, I hope that woman (girl? whatever word keeps me out of trouble) sees this as a positive. If not, thanks for stopping by, I hope you find what you are looking for.
I am funny. I swear. Really funny. OK, my friends disagree sometimes, but what do they know?
What am I looking for. . . I want the real thing. I want an amazing person to share fantastic moments: travel, adventure, whatever! But let's face it, if I am repelling down a waterfall in the Golan Heights, I would have fun even if my date was a lump of coal. The person I want loves the adventure, but is also happy walking to the movie theater, making dinner together, even sitting companionably in the same room while one of us pays the bills. Extra points for talking through an argument instead of storming off. Most of life is made up of these simple things, and they are the heart of a good relationship.
It seems a lot of people write about what they want in a partner. For me it is pretty simple. I do not need little Miss Einstein, but the right girl for me will have a brain and be willing to use it. I want to be with someone who has compassion. Lastly, I do not care if anyone else is attracted to her, but I need to be. So please give me something, no matter how small, on which I can build.
Best regards. . .
