Extremely young at heart and in my mind. I rarely tire out and love
to stay up late. I do not smoke and I only drink a glass of wine,
cocktail or beer now and then with dinner or while I cook. Nothing
replaces being close to a wonderful woman who loves to hold hands,
watch romantic movies, eat great food together and occasionally do
a little country dancing. I am a serious cook and a Jack of many
trades, retired professional photographer, instructor, author,
musician, chef and handyman.
What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying each day and grateful for it, I do what I need to do and
also work to help others who are less fortunate or in poor health.
I’m really good at
Cooking, fixing things, photography, being romantic.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably that you get what you see. There is no false front. I am not materialistic. I dress respectable and treat others with respect. I seem to be on a perpetual quest to prove to the world that there is still a man who treats a woman like a lady and who is not a user. I am oriented toward making others happy first and am not all about me. I think its terrible that so many women have endless bad stories about the men they have had relationships with. Shouldn't be that way.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't read much but have an extensive collection of movies, music
and as I mentioned, do a lot of serious cooking. Movies in my
collection cover just about every kind you can think of from
romantic, drama, comedy to sci fi, action and westerns. Cooking is
creative fun for me. I enjoy many different types of food but work
hard to keep it healthy. I enjoy making Baby Back Ribs, Italian
food, Greek, Mexican and Chinese food. Deserts... Can you say
Mexican Chocolate Creme Brulee?
The six things I could never do without
Love, music, fun, food, movies and great friends.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Ways to be romantic with the woman of my dreams.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually dancing but it depends. If there is a lady in my life then I want to be with her. While Friday is indeed the end of the week and a time to enjoy the weekend, I am equally happy going out dancing or staying in with my lady.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I am good at things that most men are not but women wish they
You should message me if
If you are single, want a man who is a real man but doesn't constantly need to prove it to himself and everyone else, that's me. If you want a man who is confident, stable and comfortable in who he is, that is also me. If you are looking for a crude bad boy, that's not me. If you are looking for a rich guy to take you to Europe and buy the most expensive wines, that is not me. If you want a man who knows how to dedicate himself to the happiness of the woman he loves, that is very much me. If you are sincere, humble, kind and the girl next door, that is what I am looking for. If you are young at heart, energetic, romantic, enjoy the simple pleasures of life when shared, that is what I am hoping for. If you desire a macho, badass kind of guy who won't even open a door for you, then that's not me. I always treat women with care and respect. Not just when things are new, but always.
