I am a pretty even-keel kind of person - understanding, honest and compassionate. I like order in my life, am principled and dependable. I love witty exchanges and new words. I do not dance much, but do admire a skillful dancer without inhibitions.
I enjoy people who speak their mind, as long as it is thoughtful, truthful and on-point. Not big on makeup, prefer the natural look. I am generally not very romantic, but enjoy playfulness and making people smile and laugh.
My family is extremely important to me. I've got three beautiful girls under 11 - they keep me very busy. I have them every other weekend and a couple times a week. I have hopes to introduce them to the woman I am dating, but only after I am reasonably sure that person is a compliment to our lives.
When I have free time (this is a relatively new thing for me) I spend time with friends, at home, rehearsal or at local music events in the area. Would love to venture out more...just need a partner in crime ;). I really enjoy weekend trips and camping. I love to travel when time and money allow.
I am looking for that special somebody to spend my free-time weekends with. However, after 13 years of marriage, I am not overly eager to devote myself to one person just yet. As you know, the search takes time and I am not one to jump blindly...so I am patient, tentative and keeping my options open.
I will know the right person for me when I meet them - however, we've got to meet first - I cannot tell that you are a fantastic woman by your profile alone. Chemistry is discovered not stated. So...let's go have a drink and get to know each other!
In my travels, I've found it is best not to have pre-conceived notions or expectations on most things in life. I like to talk about real things in the here and now (because we know not what the future holds) and find a direct (...not bossy) woman refreshing (no guessing means no games, right?) but I have interests and intentions going forward as well, so fairness and respect for each other is paramount.
I am not a salesman, needy, clingy or rude. Be bold. Take a calculated risk and drop me a line or two and hopefully, we'll soon be chatting and laughing together. I look forward to hearing from you!
