It would be stellar, and appreciated, if you are very intelligent, love the great outdoors (more in practice then theory), are quite attractive (sorry I'm not deep enough to overcome biology), and KIND. Also traits I have learned to appreciate in women are; competent in how you run your life, fun, sexy, and emotionally healthy. If you are SO darn cool my female friends like you, that scores you all kinds of points.
To clarify. I prefer cross-country skiing over snowmobiling (sp.?). Reading a book over TV. Costa Rica over Cancun. I am more type B then type A. Value quality free time over career stature. Eating in (I'm a good cook, though rusty) to save up for an exotic vacation. Beers at a dive bar with a good friend over a cocktail at a hipster bar with pleasant acquaintances. A woman in a ponytail who smells good vs. plucked eyebrows & makeup. I'm really trying to stay away from "being everything to everyone (woman)" on this profile. I'd rather try my best to portray who I really am, in my quest to find a great life partner, and avoid those pleasant but mediocre 1st dates we have all had.
I can be a bit too formal in these "typed" settings, but can really be relaxed and put you at ease in person. On our hot date. I figured out a LONG time ago, that I am not the center of the world , so I will not be a typical dude and spend the whole time talking about myself. And yes, it's fair for me to state that I am a confident, masculine man who also is emotionally available & developed.
My son is a big part of my life. I have all kinds of space & time in my life for a good woman. If you view my son as baggage, switch to the next profile. Really.
I'm really enjoying my life right now, and grateful for the world I have built around me. Still, there are so many fun things to do in Colorado. And great places to visit in the world. And some things to figure out. I would love a special women to share them with. I am in no rush, a cool girlfriend is a start. I do have serious intentions though.
US= a relationship that is based in reality, not Hollywood. Whip smart conversations that draw in our friends, and overwhelm mere mortals. A healthy dose of passion. Space where we do our own things. We will NOT try to control each other. But communicate really well. Be drawn to each other. 2 of our favorite things are me putting my hands on you, and you wanting my hands on you. Someone that knows my story, who I respect, and who I can really, really care for. At 46 (how did that happen so quickly?) finding a REALLY good woman who I can make laugh, think, tingle, and be her granite boulder in life is what I want. Wow, I got on a roll there.
Thanks for taking the time to look at my profile, and take care.
