A guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who works like a man and plays like a kid... the boy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you're just as pretty without makeup on. One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky he is to have you... The one who turns to his friends and says, that’s HER.
This is the Man I strive to be in a Relationship. I'm not perfect, and sometimes I fail, but it is never for lack of trying. I refuse to go to bed angry, I admit when I'm wrong, I learn from my mistakes, and I don't repeat them.
You will not find me a Perfect Man. But you will find me always working to become a better communicator, a better listener, and a better Partner.
Who I'm looking for:
Everyone has a "short-list" of ideal qualities they would like in a mate. Below are some of mine.
Caucasian, between 35-46 years old, Petite/5'7" or under, and Slender. She would also have what I consider to be the top ten most important qualities in a woman:
2) Wit / Humor / Funny
3) Feminine / Passionate / Romantic / Sensual
4) Affectionate / Emotional / Nurturing / Giver
5) Committed / Faithful / Priority on Fidelity
6) Good Conversationalist / Communicator
7) Priority on Good Health / Fitness
8) Desire to Travel / Share Adventures
9) Maturity / Honesty / No Games
10) Loves animals
...And, of course, a Relationship ALWAYS needs that vital element of "Chemistry".
I'm also a firm believer that deep, honest communication is essential in a relationship. If you can't talk--you can't love. So if you're with me, expect to hear what I'm feeling. Know it will always be the TRUTH. And know I will never settle for less from you.
I tend to feel most like myself wearing a neat, well-trimmed beard (as in some of my photos), but I'm always happy to shave to accommodate the preferences of my partner. Dig a little beyond the external, and I think you'll find intelligence, kindness, awesome family and friends, super high values, a strong sense of self, compassion for others, a Romantic spirit, and a passionate knowledge of what I want out of life. Also, dig as you might, you will not find a single moment of cheating, substance abuse, verbal or emotional abuse, and honest to God...NO GAMES.
If you've read this far, I hope you'll consider taking the next step to learn more. If you do, I can promise you one other thing: If we're lucky enough to find Love together, you'll never have to worry about me looking at another woman. I've waited a LONG time to find the Right Gal, because I never intend to want, need, or have another...
#10. I'm a Rebel: I refuse to use those lame Italian words for the sizes at Starbucks.
#9. Everything I ever needed to know about romance I learned from Cary Grant, John Cusack, and Pepe Le Pew.
#8. Generally sweet and charming—but I take no prisoners during Scrabble and witty banter. Just sayin'.
#7. Not in any rush. I believe in Friends first. That means Seinfeld only if there's time...
#6. LOVE animals, and fully understand that your pet gets veto power. (Hence, the bacon in my pockets.)
#5. On great terms with Jesus, the Buddha, the Great Spirit, and Mother Nature...and strive to emulate them all genuinely and consistently.
#4. Adventurous and inquisitive--in fact, the only guy more curious than me is a monkey who hangs out with a man in a yellow hat.
#3. I'm one of the few guys I know who actually loves his parents, and doesn’t equate the word family with the Addams Family or the Manson Family.
#2. Integrity. Is. Everything. Enough said.
And the #1 thing you need to know about me is…
#1. You love to laugh? I’m clearly your guy…Women have been laughing at me my whole life!
Okay, so that last one didn’t come out quite right, but you get the picture.
International faves include Paris, Germany, and Scotland. I still need to see England, Wales, Italy, Greece; and EVERYWHERE tropical!
