My self-summary
Awesome, awake, intelligent, caring, compassionate, handsome, generous, successful guy with eclectic interests seeks wise caring woman. I appreciate intelligent conversation, a good sense of humor, and politeness. I remember the dates of birthdays and anniversaries. I don’t have kids but like them so if you have them that is fine. If you haven’t had them and want them, that is fine, too. My interests are detailed below, but 2 important ones are spirituality and family.

I am traditional in that I want an LTR that might lead to marriage. Otherwise, though, I am a child of the 60s and the accompanying woman’s lib movement, meaning: we are both self-supporting and work for our money and my money is as important as yours, so we’ll go Dutch treat; I expect you to show as much interest in me—verbally—as I show in you; I like nice things done for me on occasion; if we don’t have something in common, you respect my position and want to understand it; you take part in planning and even initiate at least some of our activities. This list may not be inclusive. I put a tux on 4 times a year for special occasions, but otherwise dress up rarely outside of work, meaning my preferred ensemble is jeans and a t-shirt. The bottom line is that while we may have biological differences, most of those are superficial and just not that important in the big picture. It is much more likely that what we want and value in our journeys as human beings is the same. Of course, if I’ve stated an expectation of you here, I provide the same in return (that is my understanding of equality of the sexes).

I don’t drink because people in my family abused it, but I have plenty of friends who do and am fine if you do moderately. If you’ve been divorced less than a year after a long marriage or if you spend more than an hour in front of the mirror, sorry, but I am not the right boy for you. Serious inquiries only, please, and photo is required (fair is fair). Last but not least--I am not a paid member, so don't get any of those benefits, including "Likes.".

Looking forward to hearing from you! Thanks for reading my profile, and have a great day.
What I’m doing with my life
Living, learning, loving, having fun!
I’m really good at
Relationships, singing, and conversation.

Spending time outdoors and being active are both very high on my list of fun things to do.

My hobbies are healthy living and eating, hiking, fly fishing, camping, bicycling, walking by the Lake, movies, genealogy, ball room dancing (favorites are tango and waltz), cross country skiing, studying Italian, reading, watching movies, and singing spiritual music.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile and my friendly nature. I am very honest and loyal.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
TV: West Wing, Dog Whisperer, Seinfeld, Frasier, Cheers, Family Ties, Rachel Maddow

Movies: Phenomenon, Jerry Maguire, The Man in the Moon, It Could Happen to You, many others (mostly romantic comedy and drama)

Music: Enya, Shania Twain, sacred, classical. Pretty eclectic tastes in music, but metal, rap, and and classic country are not in the mix.

On a rainy day I like to curl up in bed with a good book.

Last books: John Grisham, Sue Grafton, and Harlan Coben mysteries; Italy Travel Guides (a dozen of them); lots of medical and nutritional stuff; Eat, Pray, Love, which was excellent!

Love Milwaukee's many ethnic restaurants. Hiking in the gorgeous forests of Kettle Moraine, Door County (Peninsula and Newport), or a walk by the Lake. Been to Italy 7 times and love it.

I'm 1/4 Italian, but like many people with Italian heritage, that 1/4 tends to dominate everything else! I've been to Italy 7 times, and love all things Italian--la bella lingua, the food, the culture--everything!
The six things I could never do without
Spirituality, my health, good food, friends, Italy, the outdoors, music (I guess that's 7!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The person i want to meet and type of relationship I want to have, my future, my friends, being in nature, doing fun things
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging with friends, reading a good book, ballroom dancing, or watching a good movie--at the theater or on TV
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'll tell you most anything if you ask. Let's get to know each other!

I consider myself very spiritual, and am more spiritual than religious. I believe in a loving, caring God, and know that there is more than one way to Him/Her. I am comfortable in most churches, but I'm not so much into dogma. While it would be nice if my partner and I had the same spiritual beliefs, I don't think it's necessary.

And, since it's not in the demographic section on this site, I'll put it here-- I am pretty liberal politically. Again, nice if we're similar, but not necessary.

Variety is the spice of life!
You should message me if
You like what you see here, and you match all of what's in "I'm looking for." If you're not interested in a monogamous LTR, sorry, but we would not be a good match. Marriage is a possibility if we are both interested. There is something special about that extra step and commitment.
