My self-summary
At this stage of my life there isn't much I haven't done, it's now the time to go back to the places I've enjoyed with someone I want to enjoy them with all over again. Between business, athletics and personally related trips, I've traveled pretty extensively through every state in the US except 4 or 5, Mexico and the Caribbean frequently and once to Europe. My greatest love is anything ocean related based on the fact that I grew up sailing, surfing and anything thing else you can think of on it up in New England. As an ex jock I still love working out and try to get in at least 5 workouts a week. I've played level A ALTA, but haven't played in 5 years, my golf handicap was a low as 12 at one time, but I don't get out nearly as much as I once did, so it's a whole lot more then that now, lol. I have a small marketing company and I'm a partner in a business consulting firm, both have struggled in this economy, but I've worked hard at keeping things alive. This hasn't stopped me though from spending time traveling and doing a variety of other things with my friends. I will always find the time to do things away from work! I think most of my friends would tell you I have a pretty good sense of humor and will keep you entertained in some form or another. I love animals, I now have a cat, it was a stray kitten so i took her in, had a great dog when I was married.

Things I look for in a woman is her ability to hold her own in whatever setting we happen to be in. I don't want someone in my life that needs me, I want someone in my life who wants me, there is a big difference in want and need and if you don't realize that we wouldn't be a match. As we get to this age we all have some kind of baggage in our lives, be it ex's, etc., I'm looking for someone whose baggage is more of the carry on size, not a steamer trunk. I love to dance, if it just so happens the mood might strike me while hanging out in the kitchen, I just might grab you for a twirl right there (I'm sort of an incurable romantic) I'll even go to a chick flick, as long as it's got a decent plot.

I was on the board of directors of a local symphony and have a diverse taste in music, but I love my 70's and 80's. Not big on the opera, but will go to the ballet. My views are on the conservative side when it comes to fiscal responsibility and people being responsible for their own actions, in other words, no more taxes, so if you're an Obama fan we're not going to match! I work hard for what I've achieved in this world and I don't mind giving to worthy causes but, I do not believe in just handing people money who aren't willing to do something for it! I think kissing is the most under rated act two people can perform. I think it's sexy to sit over a cup of coffee and just talk looking at each other. I know the minute I meet someone whether I'm attracted to them or not, after that, there has to be some substance behind the outer shell to make what we both hope to have, work.

OK, here's a p.s. to all this, DO NOT contact me if you just got out of a relationship, don't know if you're ready to date or are playing games on this site trying to see how many people will respond to you! I'm one of the few people on here it seems who actually would like to meet someone to have a future with. If I'm interested I will message you, I will respond to any message I get although it may not be the answer you're looking for. I believe everyone deserves a response.

I can't believe as adults I have to put this last paragraph in here, but I'm tired of the sophomoric attitudes people take to on line dating!

It's not about the journey, it's who your taking the journey with!

The first things people usually notice about me
They usually say I look bigger in person.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
i'm a big James Patterson and Vince Flynn fan, movies, everything from Dumb and Dummer to a chick flick as long as it has a decent plot, i don't know what category bridesmaids falls in but i laughed my ass off, love old Bogart and Cagney movies, you have to love Casablanca(A kiss is just a kiss).
Six things I could never do without
Family, My Son(although there was a time he probably thought he could have done without me, lol), Friends, The Ocean, The Affection of a Great Woman(that's a want, not a need), UGA Football and My Faith
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What can of soup I'm going to open for lunch, what do you want me to say, I'm thinking about all kinds of crap all day long, lol

Lately hanging with friends, enjoying their company.
You should message me if
If you understand what you want in life, but realize the future also brings changes and compromise, you desire love and realize it brings it's own challenges, you've grown to understand what it means to make a relationship work!
