I value integrity. If I say I'm going to do something, I'm going to do it. I actually miss the days where a person's word meant something and people treated others with respect. I'm from the Midwest. I've been raised to treat women with respect and be chivalrous. Yes I will dote on you. Yes this still means we are equals in the relationship.While I may be a bit old fashion, I believe traditional gender roles are antiquated and seek an equal partner in every meaning of the word. I will give the relationship and you my all. I think it is the little things which mean a lot. Whether this takes the form of being an ear to listen, sending a text saying "I'm thinking of you," etc. What really matters is being the person my partner needs when she needs it. I'm an intellectual. Well this may have gotten me picked on when I was younger, I've embraced it. I enjoy learning for the sake of learning, trivia and much, much more.
I'm an extrovert with introverted tendencies. Myers-Briggs (a personality test) would call me the executive (ENTJ) though I have been known to be the scientist (INTJ) depending on my environment.
I have four degrees. Three undergraduate and a graduate. My father used to always joke that if he won the lotto he would send me to school for the rest of my life.
