STRONG BONDS. My family and friends rock my world. I’ll never forget the look on my father’s face when my sister and I flew in as a surprise for his 60th birthday. The lessons he taught me about seeing a task through, keeping calm under pressure, and treating my word as bond define who I am as a man.
EXPERIENCING THE WORLD. World-class adventures yield more stories than the latest gadgets do. I love the rush of Class V whitewater and a sultry summer breeze. the thrill of a last-minute roadtrip and a home cooked dinner with a bottle of pinot noir, a hike through the Scottish Borders (just did St. Cuthbert's Way!), the rush of practicing Brazilian jiu-jitsu and the calm of a nighttime stroll on the banks of the Charles, and the thrill up my spine when I touch down in a new corner of the world.
MOVIE MOMENTS. Naturally, you and I are the stars. That means that you can spend Saturday afternoon getting a manicure and trying on that sexy pair of Manolos while I hit the weights and the mat. When I see you in the evening, I’ll appreciate your new outfit and perfume, literally sweep you off your feet, kiss you properly and often, and guide you through a terrific evening. Whether we are enjoying five courses at a hot new restaurant, or I am holding you on the couch as we watch a snowstorm, we will lose ourselves in the moment.
MASCULINITY AND FEMININITY. You are a feminine woman, I recognize and appreciate it. I love that you're sensitive, caring, playful, soft, and overflowing with love. When a vortex of stress has consumed your day, I'm the man that will rub your shoulders, hold you and make you feel that all is right with the world.
CLEAR COMMUNICATION. I'm all about communication and accountability. I can look you in the eyes and apologize when I've done something wrong, but know how and when to stand my ground. After having seen enough doormats and meatheads, I am confident that you will appreciate it. I'm looking for the same.
HIGH EXPECTATIONS. I’m a busy man, and thus selective in the company I keep. You are beautiful in body and mind, intelligent, capable, striving for self-improvement, and have great positive energy. You are secure in your relationship to the world, are comfortable in your own skin and understand that “attractive” is an attitude, not just a set of physical specs. You're an all-world kisser and know how to please a man in every way. You have both poise and passions in life.
UTMOST CHARACTER. We value integrity, honesty, trust, and respect each others' time; we keep each other sharp; we limit “drama” to the theater and “games” to the Fenway/Gillette/Garden variety. You're confident, sharp, and self-actualized. The last thing I want is to wake up every morning next to a “hot” woman who is a flake or a downer. I don't chase.
NATURAL CONNECTION. In my dating life, I am looking for a scintillating conversationalist and overall exciting companion. I am emotionally literate and willing to take risks. I don't believe in timelines, "rules," ultimatums, or “falling in love with falling in love.” Just the real deal.
If you're reading this, I've probably e-mailed you already. If I haven't, don't be scared...drop me a line and I'll take it from there.
Either way, it's time we met.
