I am patient, kind, empathetic and a good listener. I have a healthy relationship with my family and appreciate that in others. I can be lighthearted and partake of the silly side of life. I also know when to be serious. I love dogs and I’m allergic to most cats.
I am an avid animal lover and environmentalist. I have a penchant for scenic drives and out of the way restaurants. I love a variety of music and, while I am not much of a dancer I do love listening to live music. I enjoy seeing movie premieres and am game for most anything. I like cooking when motivated and am pretty good at it. At least I haven't had to call an ambulance yet due to my cooking. I’m grateful to my grandmother for teaching me how to prepare tasty dishes. My mom raised a very contemporary man and I know my way around the house, cleaning, loading the dishwasher, laundry, etc. However, those things are much more fun done together. I've been called a true renaissance man.
Most of my friends are women and I learn a lot from them. I’m tall and I prefer to date someone between 5’6” and 5’11”. I still have all my hair. I’m not overweight and am in great shape. I would prefer someone who is of average weight +/- 20 lbs in height. I find "curvy" very attractive and also prefer a woman with longish hair A feminine look with an intelligent, warm personality is appealing to me. A good sense of humor is always a pleasure. I’m not looking for perfection, just the right person to share my life.
Deal breakers: Smoking, Radicals of any persuasion, Liberals (no offense but we won’t get along), Anti-Hunter or Anti-Gun (you don’t have to enjoy it, just understand I do), too far outside the physical parameters listed above (I’m sorry but I know what fits). If you have issues with my friends or my dog, it’s a definite deal breaker, just as I’d expect myself to get along with your friends, family and pets.
