Cliff notes version of me ... I'm a down to earth individual who is a dad to two great girls that are honestly my two biggest accomplishments. I'm a confident man, but there is a fine line between confidence and arrogance. I know where that line is. I'm educated and while I personally don't use this as criteria for finding someone I know that many do. I'm very real and comfortable in my own skin. I don't claim to be something that I'm not. I'm just as comfortable in jeans and a t-shirt at a dive bar as I am with my power tie and best suit at an event. If you like to laugh then we have a great starting point. I've been told I'm pretty funny. I like to say I am serious ... but I don't take myself seriously. While I am busy with my profession I am definately balanced. I like to do stuff but at the same time it's nice to lay back and just appreciate the small things life is all about. I am a very good listener and usually have a different slant on things. I'm a romantic and I'm a gentleman. Chairs will be held, doors will be opened and pedestals will be conveniently placed right in front of your shoes should that intrigue you.
The girl I'm looking for should be affectionate, optimistic, caring, kind hearted and grounded. She should have a touch of class that makes her intriguing. Confidence is a sexy quality that I really like. I enjoy a woman with her own opinion that has no problem telling me about it yet understands the importance of being diplomatic. Intellegence is sexy too. Like me she should not only appreciate the time running away somewhere but also love to lay back and charge the batteries.
With relationships It all starts with friendship. I've learned that if you don't have that it will never last. No matter how hard you try. Respect is key as is genuinely caring for each other and treating each other the way you would want to be treated. Life is better with two.
