I like to find humor in every situation, as appropriate, of course. A sense of humor is a necessity in life, especially in the face of adversity.
I like to have fun, regardless of what I'm doing, going to movies, dining out, hiking, day trips, the beach, exercise, playing sports or enjoying the outdoors.
I am looking for a woman who holds similar values, morals, ethics and interests as I.
Values: I don't approve of dishonesty, theft, cheating, disobeying laws. I'm not promiscuous, and once a commitment is made, I keep it. Not a miser, but am careful with my money. I appreciate the need to plan for when I am no longer in the workforce.
Ethics: I believe in being fair with everyone I deal with, in giving the other person the benefit of the doubt. I believe in trying to find a win/win when differing with another. I believe in doing unto others as I would have done unto myself. I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days (okay that's from "Bull Durham" but it just seemed to flow really well).
Religion: Raised Jewish, but don't practice or observe, although I was Bar Mitzvah'd and went to Hebrew school. I feel that organized religion has created more grief in the world than it has harmony.
Interests: I'm an avid baseball fan. My favorite team is the Phillies (I grew up near Philadelphia), but I also follow the D'backs. I like music, can appreciate most kinds of music, but primarily enjoy mainstream rock and roll, don't care much for country or rap. I play the guitar, although self taught, and very much an amateur. Not much of a book reader. I read newspapers and periodicals, more for gathering information, and learning about things. I like movies, electronics, computers and technology in general. I'm interested in what's going on politically, and enjoy discussing the philosophy involved with decisions being made in the community and nation. Good wine, although since I moved from the California bay area, don't taste and collect like I used to.
I have a 15 year old son, who lives primarily with me. He is a special needs child, and requires a great deal of my time and patience. My relationship with him, and my role in his life as his Father is very important to me. Hence, my free time for dating is limited to weekends, or for the right woman, with enough pre-planning a weeknight. Eventually though, it would be nice to be in a relationship where we could plan getaways from time to time.
