More specifically about me...
Most people who really know me would tell you I'm a balance of sophistication and professionalism mixed with just the right mischief, adventure and humor. I can be a genuine gentleman, a true romantic, and very confident in myself' but I'm totally down to earth. I'm not conceited or self centered and I try to succeed in everything I do. I'm a very positive person; straightforward and open minded and I'm usually in a great mood, I'm old fashioned in that I'll still open a door for you, and love to hold hands. I'm very affectionate, and I believe that it's important to make my girlfriend feel special and that she's the number 1 priority in my life. I'm also a dad to a beautiful 23 year old daughter who I adore.
I run my own business, and I take certain things in life seriously, but at the end of the day I'm still a kid at heart. I can debate world issues at a black tie event or discuss sports at the local pub. You can feed me prime rib or seafood or hamburger or hot dog, I'm good with any of them. You might find me doing muddy mountainbike ride, a 40 mile road ride or enjoying an ice cold beer and hand carved roast beef sandwich at the local pub.
LOVE Music: All types...from Classical (Beethoven, Rachmaninoff, Wagner) to Classic Rock (Queen was my favorite growing up) to alternative...I really like Arctic Monkeys, Coldplay, The White Stripes, Biffy Clyro, Manic Street Preachers, Keane, Kings of Leon and Queens of the Stone Age to name a few new bands.
Books: My favorite author at the moment is Ken Follett....great historical novel writer, among other things. I also like Grisham, Michael Connelly, Michael Prescott, Lee Child and a few others.
Quote: "The heart has its reasons of which reason knows nothing"
Miscellaneous other things: Other, miscellaneous things I like: good European lager beer, traveling to new places, London (been there 24 times.I actually have a side business where I give travel advice to people going to London for the first time ), electronic gadgets, bike shops, winter storm warnings, my Keurig coffee maker, my Kindle, Primos Hoagies, the PHILLIES, Pat's OR Genos, cool crisp autumn nights, Le Tour de France in July and women in baseball caps!
You: intelligent, honest, athletic, naturally attractive girl with a great sense of humor.
My 4 Must Haves: Someone who is 1) A good communicator. You'll always know where I stand. No games and I expect the same from you. 2) Affectionate, sensual and sexual. If you don't like a guy who will put his hands on your shoulders and kisses the top of your head when he returns to the dinner table at a restaurant, or if you only think love making should happen once a week, then we probably won't be a good match. 3) Good with conflict resolution. Arguments happen in relationships from time to time. Take a few hours to cool off and think about things, but don't let it drag on for days. If it must go over night, each of us should be have the wherewithal to put our pride aside, and text the other before bed saying 'I know we're fighting but I still love you' 4) A sense of humor and banter. Banter is flirting, and flirting is healthy foreplay; and if you scan still have banter after being together for months, then that's the sign of a healthy relationship!
Oh and girls...A bit of unsolicited advice: Guys don't want to hear how BUSY you are. We're all busy, Telling a guy how busy you are is not something that's going to make you more desirable trust me on that. If you like us, make time to talk to us. We appreciate it and it goes further than you may know :)
Lastly, I'm a bit old fashioned, and would much rather connect with you over the phone than email or texting.
