I'm looking for a lasting relationship in which we trust each other enough to completely share our deepest thoughts and feelings, and are loyal to each other through all of life's adventures. Someone to be my best friend... forever. That's the long term goal; over the short term, why don't we just spice up the social calendar by meeting for happy hour, maybe at a cozy wine or martini bar, and have an enjoyable visit !!
If you're attracted to brainy guys who might outwardly appear "establishment" but actually have a liberal/nonconformist/free thinking streak...who knows, I might have a shot at becoming your friend !!
More details: With me you don't have to worry about issues that are self-evident such as the fact that intimacy takes time, or that children come first. I'm levelheaded, dependable and place a high priority on treating people with kindness and respect. I have a lot of intellectual curiosity, love to read and talk about the news of the day, politics, health, economics, philosophy, history, current events. Am a very good communicator and very social, love to meet interesting new people who have far ranging interests. Make friends very easily. Love to engage in witty, humorous and entertaining banter...love to laugh!! Are you interesting to talk to? I will make good, fun conversation with you, listen to you, and treat you with respect . Appreciate art and beauty in all its forms, such as that found in nature, in architecture, in design.
Am reasonably active, like to go biking maybe 20 miles at a time, try to get to the gym several times a week... but in a balanced way, not really into intense marathons. I am tolerant of diverse viewpoints and like to listen carefully to both sides of an issue; not particularly drawn to rigid or dogmatic thinking, so if you're looking for someone extremely religious that might not be me. Turned off by any form of prejudice or bigotry. I'm physically very passionate and affectionate, and looking for the same in a partner. Am divorced (amicably, drama free) with two children, ages 14 and 13 who already have a good mother and are becoming ever more independent !!
Like big cities over small towns. Grilled salmon and veggies over meatloaf and mashed potatotes. Sports cars over pickup trucks. Alternative rock over country. Resort with swim up bar over tent in the woods. Italian bicycle over Harley motorcycle. Microbrew over Budweiser. NPR over Rush Limbaugh. WSJ over Field & Stream. Surfing the net over commercial TV.
In terms of who I'm looking for: I'd like to preface this section by noting that what's listed below are just suggestions, and that no one would be expected to fulfill ALL these qualities !! LOL !!
Looking for someone intelligent, thoughtful, verbal, educated. Sweet, loving, nurturing personality. I'm attracted to emotional intelligence. Tactful, polite, well mannered. Sensitive to the feelings of others. Hopefully mentally and emotionally stable, levelheaded, and financially self supporting. Open minded, accepting of diversity and tolerant of other religious, social and cultural viewpoints...an intellectual free thinker, adventurous with a daring/wild side !! The more education, the better. International background and/or interests in other cultures would be a plus.
I'm really attracted to women who are talented and accomplished in some way...whether it be evidenced by having achieved a good education, or a job with responsibility, or the ability to cook a creative meal, or creatively decorating their home, or putting together a great outfit that looks awesome (most definitely !!), or a hundred other possible ways. I'm also highly attracted to girls who are optimistic, enthusiastic, entertaining and flirtatious...ABOVE ALL, please don't be boring !! Preferably feminine both in behavior and in outward appearance; I really appreciate a woman with a fashionable sense of style, especially in heels !! Physically passionate and affectionate. I'm not drawn to large tattoos or piercings. Also not drawn to aggressive, negative, or domineering personalities; I'm looking for a kind, gentle, sweet feminine personality, pure heart. 100% non smoking, no exceptions.
100% HONESTY IS A MUST- the foundation of everything - and honesty starts with an accurate profile that shows your true age and exactly what you look like, BOTH head and body. Not because these details necessarily matter, but because full disclosure reflects strongly on a person's integrity. If there's anything dishonest in your profile right now, that's a deal breaker for me and we are NOT a match.
I'm in the Akron area and looking for a reasonable driving distance (30 min ?) so that we could make plans spontaneously at times; please be more specific about where you live than "Cleveland"...it's a huge metro area !!
Overall I think you would find me to be a sensitive, funny, witty, honest and levelheaded person who is very easy to talk to, interesting, won't bore you, and will treat you with kindness and respect. I think you would like meeting me, we would have FUN, and I bet I can find a way to make you laugh !!
