I am a single guy just into his forties who is looking to date, and possibly fall in love. I am one of those people with a big heart, an easygoing personality, and can also be funny at times. I know who I'm looking for. When I find her, I know she will see me and will also know that whoever she's looking for is standing right in front of her.
I am easygoing, sweet, and fun-loving
In my spare time, I try to find time to sing with one or two choirs I usually sing with. When the money allows for it, I also try to travel while on vacation.

For the initial encounter: I'm not one for the "phone dates". I only want to be on the phone to set up a face-to-face meet up. I really believe in meeting someone face-to-face for a simple cup of coffee for at the most an hour. If things go well, fine. If not, oh well. At least both parties got to see each other in the flesh. No one can ever really gauge how things will go over the phone. All that tells me is that you're not interested, and just want to be polite. If that's you, just be straight up with me on how you feel.
Just another thing: Even though I really like kids (I have two nephews whom I love with all my heart), I'd rather not be involved with anyone who already has them; even if they are nieces and/or nephews in the middle of any family turmoil. For those who do, I'm pretty sure you will meet a guy who will be happy to date someone with kids already. I just think I'm not one of those guys. A) Too much chance of dealing with extra drama involving the woman and the kid(s) father (I really don't do well in that kind of environment); B) would rather not have the relationship take a backseat for kids who aren't mine (may sound selfish, but I have to be completely honest); and C) If I ever decided to have kids someday (and at this point I'm not completely sure I want any, but things could always change), I want my future wife and I go through our first time together.
