Whisked away on adventures and generally experiencing life. I like winter trips to some beach location, weekend getaways on the motorcycle, making meals together, driving a little too fast in a sports car to find some obscure thing to do, exploring some new ma/pa restaurant out in who-knows-where, weekend ski trips, taking dance classes, random passionate kisses in elevators, signing a waiver to have some fun at something, witty humor that can be high or low brow, and watching movies when the weather turns to crap. We will be outside a lot whenever the weather permits. You won't ever open your own door or need to pull out your own chair. I am loyal like a labrador; looking for my best friend to enjoy life and not let grass grow under our feet!!! You up for it? I want you in my life! Doing these fun things alone is getting old...
I am a bit of a contradication in many ways. I am educated, well-traveled, and I have been published over 60 times. However, I don't like to read at all and my humor and most of my interests are more blue-collar type. I can blend in a lot of different social circles, but I really prefer the midwest "genuine" type of people to spend time with.
Note: Since getting divorced over 5 years ago, I've gone on enough dates now to know who is my type and who is not. Please see the "message me if" part down below!! I am really hoping to find a woman compatible with me so I can get myself off of these dating sites...Being alone is fine and dandy, but great companionship is soooo much better.
For indoor activities, I like food and movies a lot, and I want to start learning how to dance. Oh, I love Bears games and Bulls playoffs too...

I want to be upfront with you before we might even email each other: I am NOT interested in jumping into bed quickly. Don't get me wrong--I DO want a good long-term relationship and I do of course very much enjoy sex. But, I would really like to go about a relationship the old-fashioned way. I want to do things just as friends, go a little slow on the romantic side, and see where it goes from there. Worst case is that we just stay friends. Best case, we find we really enjoy each other's company in all sorts of ways and things take off from there (literally and figuratively!). I don't want a short-term fling. Ideally, my next long term relationship is with my best friend. Sounds archiac in this day and age, I know, but I feel that it is the best way to find someone special. I just want to make sure I'm giving/receiving that affection to someone I think is pretty special and she feels the same in return...
If you live within 30min or so of me, have a diverse sense of humor, are reasonably fit and like to "do" things and truly experience life, please do write me a note! I'd love to hear from you, and I find it very appealing if the woman is confident and assertive enough to contact me first.
