Coffee in the morning is a must-have. I like wine-tasting, strolling through art galleries, picnicking in parks...well...I like lots of things...just ask. I am an open book. Communication is so important...you need to be able to talk about anything...open, honest and sincere. Its OK to disagree, but be respectful. Constructive criticism is fine also. I do what I say, and say what I do.
I know what the important things in life are. I am looking for a best friend and a lover. I enjoy smiling and laughing. I have a big heart. Unconditional love, loyalty and support. Loads of integrity. I am a provider and protector. I enjoy being affectionate. I enjoy giving and receiving...no one-way relationships please. No drama either...none given out, not looking for any.
I go to the gym 3x/week, but I am not addicted. It doesn't rule my life, it just makes my life outside the gym so much better. I enjoy lifting weights and try to keep in shape (I hope you do too). Young at heart...physically and mentally. I eat mostly healthy. Yes...I do enjoy a piece of chocolate cake occasionally...and I don't feel guilty. I like playing sports more than watching them on TV...but need to watch the Super Bowl, World Series, etc. I did play football in college...but that was a while ago. :-)
I am not a guru, cowboy, a hunter, a biker or a park ranger. I have no tattoos. My idea of roughing it is a Motel 6.
I am an optimist. When I run into a difficult situation, I can handle it and try to fix it. I've been told this is a very male trait. I am also a little bit stubborn...especially when I think I am right...but not afraid to admit when I am not. Feel free to argue your point...I am a good listener.
Musical tastes are mostly rock...classic, soft, hard, 70's, 80's and 90's, indie, alternative. I like listening to jazz and blues in clubs. Hip Hop, Rap and Country...well...depends. Disclaimer: cranking Motown while cooking dinner, with a glass of wine, is awesome!
Movie tastes include comedies, action/adventure (including SciFi), dramas and suspense. Lately watching a lot of Disney though. LOL
I enjoy watching the news on TV. Not too into reality. I like cooking and BBQing...but no baking. I think I'm a pretty good cook.
I like live theater and when I lived in NYC...I went to Broadway shows often. Been a while since I went to a show in Seattle...but enjoy it when I do.
I hate being cold...so most vacations are to warmer places. I grew up on beaches and enjoy relaxing on beaches...or walking along the shoreline. I love both 3-day weekend get-aways and longer vacations. I am ok with spontaneous trips and excursions. Sight-seeing in places "locals" go to is my fav. I am easy-going, laid-back and flexible. I like to cook...Italian is my fav! I will spoil the right woman. All I ask is for her to appreciate it. I enjoy my partner's company over any place we end up...but do prefer those places to be "nicer." Did I mention chocolate? 70% dark is my fav.
I am usually playful but serious when I need to be. I am middle-of-the-road politically and do most things in moderation. As I mentioned above...passionate about a lot - fanatical about nothing (except finding a fantastic woman!)...oh yeah...and bad restaurant service!! I tend to be picky there.
PS...I don't want to see pictures of generic scenery, your dog, your kids, your motorcycle or you from 20 years ago. I want to see YOU. After I get to know you, then I will be happy to see those other pix.
