I'm a war veteran and a survivor of 9/11 in lower Manhattan. As such, I'm an empathetic, down-to-earth, sincere, masculine type of guy with a good sense of humor. Most sarcasm goes over my head, and I won't be subjecting you to a lot of banter. I hope that works for you.
I should add though that I enjoy standup comedy, which thrives on sarcastic, self-deprecating humor. I just don't enjoy sarcasm as a form of passive agression. I note this because so many women on this site mention that they love sarcasm in a partner...can't get my head around that.
For the past six years, I've been involved with a woman in Ireland. It's been a successful, fun-filled and pro-growth relationship for us both. We have decided to allow each other to have other intimate partners in a poly framework--so far it hasn't happened.
