My self-summary
I am a hopeful romantic and I believe in opening doors and holding chairs for woman. Chivalry is really not dead. It is common to see that statement here but to me chivalry means defending and respecting weaknesses, never lying or going back on my word, and to always be generous to everyone.

I have two amazing children, 14 and 17, that are an integral part of my daily life even though we do not live together.

I love all types of food and trying new things. I enjoy traveling just as much as I enjoy cuddling on the couch. I am serious and successful at work; a martial artist; a musician; and occasionally a total goof. Renown for my sense of humor. I love animals, especially dogs. I admit when I'm wrong and I will never turn an argument into a personal attack. I am capable of learning from my mistakes. I believe in monogamous relationships and hope to find someone that can communicate and be completely honest with their thoughts and feelings.

I am totally committed to the happiness of those I care about. I am looking for a true partner who can support me as much as I support her. I am looking for someone that will bring a smile to my face when I think of her in the middle of a stressful day. I love looking into my partner's eyes and not having to say anything at all. I love long conversations that last all night.

I want my partner to fall asleep in my lap while we talk as I run my fingers through her hair. I want to be a better man every day. I have changed because of some of the people I have met here. I am a different person than I was just a few months ago. I love the man I am becoming. I want someone to teach me new things while I teach her new things. I want a partner that will join me as we learn new things together.

I own my fantasies, my dreams, my hopes, my fears. I own my triumphs and successes, all of my failures and mistakes. Don't try to change me, I am comfortable with who I am. I promise that I will not try to change you. I believe in forgiveness as no one is perfect. I can love myself and be comfortable with my surroundings.

I have been divorced 3 years. Divorce takes its toll on one's ego. It is a rebuilding process and honesty helps that process thrive. I have traveled the world a few times and look forward to seeing more of it. I work out but probably not as much as I should. I no longer feel the need to constantly be running around and I do enjoy the quiet times on the deck with a cocktail. I have to be honest, these online dating sites probably damage egos more than they strengthen them but I refuse to believe that my true soulmate is not out there somewhere. She enjoys quiet dinners and seeing live bands. She is comfortable in jeans and enjoys a cocktail or two. She has a great smile and can easily accept unconditional love. She is emotionally and physically comfortable with herself. She knows that nothing is impossible if you truly have the support of a loved one. She is also capable of giving herself completely to her man. In return she will experience true happiness that can only be achieved by walking hand in hand with someone that would willingly give up everything to protect her. The last year here has been an interesting learning experience. One great lesson is that it truly is better to be alone than with the wrong person.
