In my perfect world I would like to find a partner that can be my best friend. I really don't like this whole dating game, but understand its a means to and end that I seek.
Being together, we'd have fun, enjoy being silly and laughing at each others jokes. I'm passionate and hopeful to meet a woman that would not object to public displays of affection, enjoys flowers for no particular reason, and can treat me with respect as I would her. She would also have a passport and love to travel far or ready for a weekend get away to go explore.
I'd like to find an easy going and confident woman, I'm not into drama. Someone that is positive, loves to laugh and have a good time. I do not have a particular list of 'perfect type' of woman I seek, I am open, but most important is someone that is happy from within, positive energy and sees the bright side in life.
I'm in very good shape, and enjoy being active. I play soccer (real futbol) just for fun rather then going to a gym, and can still run circles around guys 20 years younger; that's a real boost. After all, I was raised in Argentina, and played on teams while living in England, Germany and Spain.
I'm seeking a partner that's equally interested in an active and healthy lifestyle.
Note: Before you read all the way through, I am a father, and have an 18 year old daughter that lives with her mom, and I do have my baggage, but its the carry on size, my 7 year old son, (yes you read right) he stays with me half the time, and I love being his dad.
I'm not seeking a mother for him, he has one already... but please understand that my son is important, as is my time with him, however finding a life partner is now an essential part of my happiness, and my well being.
I would welcome being with someone that loves family, may already have kids, or enjoys and appreciates the magic a youth brings to our lives. My situation is flexible, and that makes it easy for adjusting schedules for travel and special occasions.
There are a few things I should point out that don't work well for me. Profiles with pictures that don't show your eyes, or without a full body shot (have been fooled by that one) I would say that I am not into women in search of being rescued from their life situation, or big tattoos on a woman turn me off as well. Never liked smokers or heavy drinkers, also if you are a religious zealot, or conservative, maybe get your political facts from FOX News (think Sara Palin would have made a swell vice President) then we may not be a good match either.
My pictures are all very recent (September 2014)
I'm not looking for a long distant pen pal, please be within a reasonable distance of Los angeles, so we can meet easily for dinner during the week, or a hike etc. I'm also not interested in a series of ongoing first dates, but someone interested in having fun getting to know each other with an eye on developing a comitted relationship. I'm not in a hurry, I'm not out here trying to carve notches in my bed post as they say, but looking to find someone genuine, special, to take time getting to know.
