I live to laugh and I smile at the simplest things in life. I would rather be single then be in a relationship that is boring, meaningless and not fun. I would do anything for the people I love within my limits. I am very simple, I try to live a simple materialistic life, don't own too much but what is needed for every day living. I love the outdoors and traveling and exploring is who I am. Discovering the unknown and getting lost in my environment excites me.
I know what I want out of life and I will not settle so for me a relationship with a woman does not have to be perfect but it has to be with a woman who will be my best friend. I believe in monogamy even in dating because when I am dating a woman I want to focus all of my time, energy and effort on one woman. At my age and experience I know what I like in a woman and the values that is important to me in a woman. I may pursue a woman fast but that is only in the interest of getting to know her as a friend first. I am a very caring person but I will be honest that developing a committed relationship for me is a slow and long process. I am not afraid of committment but to me it is important that I get it right. If this means we are friends dating for awhile to get to know one another so be it because a relationship to me is something that needs to evolve slowly. Love to me is not at first sight, love to me is at the end of my life where I am old and gray and looking at the woman who has been my best friend in all my life.
