Not sure what you want or what you're looking for, but welcome. I would love to give a full impression here, but I feel like this is a cover letter for some type of a job, and at this point in my life I feel like that's not too far off.
Also, to be up-front, I have a son that I am deeply committed to being a presence for, but he is not local. Family has always been more important to me than anything else, and is something I am willing to go above and beyond for. I'll be honest, my dream had always been the "white picket fence, golden retriever, Subaru" family life, but I have learned the importance of the idea that we must be willing to let go of the lives we have planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us.
That being said, Dating should be fun, right? Ice skating and movies and dinners at new fusion restaurants?
I have been through enough to know I just want to feel comfortable with someone, and trust their intentions and trust their feelings about me. I won't settle for women who are emotionally abusive and/or manipulative to get their way. I believe there are too many good, kind-hearted, people in this world to be treated unfairly in this realm.
When I love someone, I would do anything for them. I'd like to be with a woman who does not need, or want, to be rescued, but who knows that I would do whatever it takes in an equal partnership. I believe a great relationship is centered around constantly choosing to build trust and establish greater togetherness.
I want someone who I can experience things with. Someone to talk to. Someone who sees who I am, likes who I am, and who wants to plan adventures together. Build something together. Make a movie or a YouTube show together, I don't know. I believe it's possible, and I won't give up hope!

Other than that, I prefer Coffee shops to bars, and bars to clubs. (bonus points for Irish Pubs, have never been disappointed by an Irish Pub)
Or if You would like to experience passion beyond your wildest dreams. (hey, who knows?)
