I really enjoy treating a woman like a lady and making her feel special. I am a romantic at heart and love to do the little things that make a big difference, whether it be a short note, sending flowers just because or making a special candlelit dinner. I believe that it's the simple things that matter most and want to share myself with a woman who truly appreciates a nice guy.
I really would love to meet someone and start out getting to know each other as friends. I believe this forms a solid foundation, helps develop trust and allows us to get to know each other as we are, without trying to be something that we are not. I value being comfortable in a relationship above all else, because being yourself is extremely important. If there does happen to be a connection there, that is great and it will be based on trust, loyalty and above all on who we really are rather than on who we are not. This just leads to unrealistic expectations and ultimately disappointment. When you can just spend time with someone and share yourself with that person, to listen and unequivocally enjoy the company of that person no matter what's going on around you, well, that's what it's all about. Nothing can beat that absolute feeling of contentment & emotional well-being. It starts with a endearing look, a thoughtful glance, a gentle caress, a soft kiss.....or a wet passionate one.
My ideal first date would be a nice walk in a park or possibly on the beach, where we can talk and get to know each other in a somewhat quiet environment, possible near some shops or outdoor cafes to help break the ice and allow us just enough distraction to take the pressure off the awkwardness of a first date. Of course, if the weather doesn’t allow us to be outside, a nice relaxing cup of coffee in a quiet café would be a nice way to begin to get to know each other.
I enjoy watching some television, including The Good Wife, CSI, Law and Order, Parenthood and a few good sitcoms as well, such as Two and Half Men, The Office, How I Met your Mother as well as old episodes of Seinfeld.
I also enjoy reading James Patterson, John Grisham and lately have enjoyed some non-fiction and autobiographies, which is a little out of the norm for me from my usual fiction genre.
A Beautiful Sunny Day
Quiet moments to reflect and relax
At the same time, I try NOT to think TOO much as this can be overwhelming and counterproductive sometimes. I try to live in the moment and enjoy what's happening in my life right now.
