I value in my partner: honest conversation, a strong personality, a sense of adventure, fun, and a willingness to play both indoors and outside. They should be clear on their preferences but not stuck on any hang ups. At this point in life, it's learning to accept the past to be what it was but clearly living in the present.
Humor and laughter are a must as the banter between a man and a woman create some of life's best moments. With that said - it's done with admiration and respect for the person I share my life with.
I'd ask that Family, Friends, and Community be important to you - They all contribute to our individual growth as they are a part of life's circle. The profile picture is a good example of family time as I was a groomsman at my brother's wedding and was looking "stylish" for their celebration. I, like you, have a mixture of ways we present our self to the world. I would hope my partner finds my personality, manners, and "grace" just as appealing as anything I may be wearing.
I have a passion for music (particularly Contemporary Jazz) and relish the opportunity to experience the live performance - One World Theater in Austin is my place for live Jazz. I enjoy a wide range/genre of music that is based on talent and not just studio magic.
What's the next step? Send me an email, open a dialog, accept my open invitation for “a spot of tea” (said with an English accent - humor) or a cup of coffee to explore the friendship, the possibilities, and the journey into a new life that awaits for both of us.
