I have no expectations other than expanding and enriching my life with someone that I have a lasting chemistry with. Friendship has always worked best initially for me. I tend to be selective with the people I bring into my life, and prefer being around happy and positive people who have substance. I'm generous with my affection and emotional availability, but appreciate the importance of giving and having a little space. Complex Cabernets are awesome, pale ales and lagers are just as awesome. I know my way around the kitchen and love to cook. I love ethnic foods I can't pronounce and try new recipes occasionally that make it on the new recipe go to or never try again recipe.
I lose my keys. I've all but given up on learning how to fold a fitted bedsheet; I “fold” it differently every time. Family is important to me, and I am very close to them. I'm up to date on all my shots. I'm outdoorsy, but not considered a tree-hugger, more like a tree high-fiver. I clean up nice and am equally comfortable in an evening gown or work suit as I am in jeans and a tee shirt. Though you're most likely to find me in the latter. I make eye contact and I listen. I'm not always as clever as I think I am. I smell good. I like saying "thank you".
I used to think I had a type in mind when looking for a match, but that has all gone out the window...my "type" hasn't panned out too well. I have also learned that yes, dating a younger guy is somewhat fun, but it makes me feel more old and I'm don't like that old feeling. Sorry younger fellas.
