I'm a Renaissance-type of person with unlimited interests and curiosity, and multiple talents. I love intelligent conversation about world affairs, politics, books, social issues, movies, etc. I'm a classically-trained pianist, so I'd like to meet someone who appreciates and cares about music. However, I'm extremely jovial and love to get up and dance when the opportunity arises. I love to cook and experiment in the kitchen and entertain guests; I enjoy traveling and hope to find someone that shares that interest. Languages are a passion as well. French and Italian can be incredibly romantic and musical, and whispering a compliment into a woman's ear can inspire a smile.
I like sports, especially soccer. But don't get me wrong, I'd rather be reading a book or having a conversation than watching Monday night football. I enjoy tennis, skiing, ice-skating, and hiking. I practiced martial arts for many years and would love to get back into it, although, like everything else, if one wants to be good at something, it requires effort and focus.
I'm a pretty fit guy and I take care of myself, and I think that health and well-being are a life-long quest, and not an easy one for that matter. I like women who take care of themselves, even if they are stranded on an island without anyone watching them.
I'm on this site to meet someone who yearns for a sincere relationship based on trust, companionship, happiness and sharing of experiences. I think phone conversations are "cool", not texting. I want to know as much as possible about you, and you should about me; texting is not conducive to that end. Overall, I'm hoping to meet someone that's passionate about something - or many things -and that values intelligent conversation, has a contagious laughter and is kind to others. I know there are a lot of you out there who hope for the same.
