My self-summary
A little about me from me:

There is a deep well of sexy that traverses through the mountains of classicism, intelligence, and creative wonder in me. Maybe you'll get it upon our first meeting. I am a passionate person. I'm comfortable in my skin and my soul is intact.

Loving, loyal, generous, and thoughtful. I love working with my hands (cooking, painting, building, gardening, etc. – why, what were you thinking!?!?)

Italian-American. Born and raised in Chicago (with the attitude and wit to show for it!) Zero drama. Low maintenance. Clear on what I want and after meeting me, you should be too.

On Love:

My favorite thing in this world is to be lost forever and a day in a kiss with the right person. You know the one where you are all of sudden connected with that feeling you haven't had in a long time and are so grateful to have found it again. How could I have gone without this? Was I not truly alive? Chemistry. The one that touches every cell in your body, and theirs, and you know this because every breath within that kiss is an exchange between you two. Yes, you know what I'm talking about.

I will always tell you what I need because as amazing as you are, I know that you are not a mind reader. Yes, I said it. ;) When you are upset or angry, unless otherwise expressed, I will give you space so you can come back to me. I don't like playing games. Not how long I should wait or when I should call crap because it feels "too real - too fast." It's like being upset for getting what you want. Knock it off. If it feels right - then let's go for it! Relationships should be easy. Life is challenging - not love. Love is not something earned - it just IS.

In a lover, I really appreciate passion, intelligence & humor. There is nothing sexier to me than wit; a man who is quietly confident; a man who looks at me with discovering eyes and pulls me up into a kiss. A man who gets me and doesn't waste my time or his. But chemistry is the essential & first ingredient.

Mangiare Vita!

I'm a pretty good cook so I hope you enjoy eating or having fun in the kitchen! I love and appreciate food - how it feeds our bodies, minds, heals us and brings people together.

The little things:

Less is more and I definitely have learned to cherish the little things in life. Feeling random moments like they could be your last and I am in this space of feeling "temporary."

I appreciate nature particularly the ocean and the mountains and respect how they are ever changing. I do have a special affinity for trees and rocks. I've done my fair share of traveling and I am definitely not done.

I choose to surround myself with people who love life too - who are positive, and despite repetitive challenges & obstacles, still can laugh, smile, get up and keep moving forward. Don't sweat the small stuff, right? With more experience, more and more things become small ;)


As for children. I'm open to them as a result of the love I share with my partner. BUT - having a partner is first and foremost to me with or without kids.

My request:

Be who you say you are, especially your age.
Have integrity. Keep your side of the street clean... Seriously, say what you mean & mean what you say and know that they are profoundly connected.

Live in the truth of reality or in the heart of your dreams - keep movin'.

I know there is a lot written here and I don't expect it all to be read. Your eyes will seek out the words you want to see and give you what you need. I just gave you more options! lol

Oh and one more thing.

You can keep your shirt on in photos and if no photo posted, es no bueno, no reply.
What I’m doing with my life
Reevaluating. Taking stock. Building something new. Venturing On! Thinking about moving. Change is in the air. Working on my hot sauce company which is fun and challenging. I'm also working on bringing my hot sauce to market. Yes, hot sauce - people seem to love it which is encouraging. I'm busy but available and I will always make time for the right person.
I’m really good at
Being a partner and a few other things, you'll have to find out for yourself.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Devil In The White City by Erik Larson, Confessions of An Economic Hitman by John Perkin was an excellent read. Both I recommend. Love, Life & Elephants by Dame Daphne Sheldrick. I have a lot of favorite movies and my music is incredibly broad. Food? Tough one because I love so many things, I adore oysters on the half shell, a perfectly ripe home grown tomato pulled warm from the vine, and an aged cheese that makes your heart sing.
Six things I could never do without
Nature! Especially Trees, Sunshine & The Ocean
Music & Creative Expression
The perfect bite
My Passport - freedom
Family & Friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I want to travel next, how fast time is flying, and how the heck am I 49 already? I'm just getting started!
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing what I want ;) I never feel like I'm missing anything because I am where I want to be.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a secret love affair with maps ;)
You should message me if would like to meet and see if there is chemistry. Please know that if I get a message that says, "How are you?" or "Sup!" or "You're sexy," etc...I probably won't respond because I'm hoping to meet a man who has a firmer grasp on being a conversationalist and, well... the English language.

Thank you for reading and happy hunting gentlemen!
The two of us
