I love music of all kinds. I love dancing of all kinds. I read mostly non-fiction. When I do read fiction it is typically love stories (not "romance" novels) and or stories around traveling.
I love Jazz, R&B, the blues, songs and standards and almost all current music. What is more I love to see it Live!
I am a well rounded person. I have lived a lot of life and I don't plan to stop. That said, there is not enough space here for nearly a percentage of my story. Sometimes I wonder if it would fit in one book. I am a story teller so, probably not. I have a diversity of interest-likes and dislikes. If there is something you don't see or want to know just ask me. If you don't ask the answer will always be- No.
And romance… I am really good at romance- I don't quite know how to explain that except to say I know how to make a lady feel special-like she is the only woman in the world.
I am a retired US Marine so, I imagine it is possible that I may come off as a little intimidating.
I am also an opera fan. I generally make the Dallas opera at least twice a season but I have had season tickets in the past.
I would have to say Hockey and Baseball are my favorite sports and my favorite sports to watch live with one exception MMA fighting. I've never seen boxing live. I imagine that would be pretty awesome!

Oh and why with all the women's liberation movements- why women still don't make the first move? Don't hesitate to message me. For me it indicates that you have a shared interest and further that I am not contacting you with ill intent. I am not here for a booty call or some kind of friends with benefits. But instead to meet real women that are open to life and relationship and what those have to offer two mutually respecting people.
You are looking for a great guy, that has his life together, and you are looking to be complimented and compliment someone else's life. And if anything I've written peeks your interest and you want to make a good friend.
I am going to expound on this a bit… I am a grown man. I know how to cook and clean for myself and I pay my own bills. I do not need someone to tell me what to wear or what to eat and/or how to live my life. So, please don't message me if you need to control or dictate someone else's life. As well please don't contact me if you are looking for an immature punk. I don't play video games for hours on end. I do not eat fast food and rarely junk food. I take care of myself and appreciate someone that does the same.
All that said, if you are just looking for a good friend- I hear I'm pretty good at it. :-)
