I'm educated, a global citizen, interesting, and a bunch of fun to be with. I'm intellectual but a little gritty. I still have some street sense. I don't call myself a writer but I write a good bit. My mother would like that. I was her knucklehead kid. I like who I am. I'm a good man. I come from a good family. I workout regularly, ride my bike quite a lot, and enjoy a steppers or Latin set sometimes. My friends think I'm really funny. I just think I'm imperfect and a little quirky. I want to add value to everything I do and every life I touch. I want the woman in my life to feel safe, special, cared for, and respected. My eyebrows will never look better than yours. I'll open doors, walk on the outside, and hold your hand when we cross the street because that's what I do. I will never mistreat you. That's a promise. I want her to feel good about herself when she's with me. Be careful with my heart. I only have one. I got your back.
I love the Lord. I pray every day. God smiles on me. I'm grateful.
She's smart, pretty, playful, and marvels at little things. She loves the Lord. She's loyal no matter what. She's a sweetheart. I like nice girls (maybe a little naughty). I always have. The mere thought of her smile can bring a man home. She has a kind and giving nature. She feels like it's an honor to please her man. I will gladly return it without hesitation. She's not high maintenance or pretentious. She is non-judgmental so I can take her anywhere, high or low, and she's okay with it. She's not easily offended so we can talk honestly about anything. She's a girly girl but doesn't mind breaking a sweat or a nail.
I'm not in a rush. I want my sweetheart.

You should message me if
You're happy with your life. You love to laugh. You have good
manners. You would rather talk and meet than message. You're
considerate of other people. You prefer real life to electronic
life. You're ready to be a great woman for a really fantastic man.
