I'm looking for love because I believe it can make a good life- great. I've got high standards because I believe I deserve someone extraordinary (doesn't everyone?). I enjoy the experience of being with a woman that keeps me on my toes, can give as good as she gets, challenges me to be the best I can be, and is intellectually stimulating.
Being a very good/attentive lover is something I take seriously. I've always enjoyed romance and being able to do things for the woman in my life, whether that be surprising her with a special evening, helping her with a project around the house or just some flowers and showing her that she is important to me. I find the simple act of holding hands to be incredibly intimate. I believe kissing is a highly undervalued activity.
I'm also passionate about life and the things that are important to me. I think passion is very important in living life to its fullest. Politically and socially I'm quite liberal. If you don't believe climate change is real and/or that nothing we can do will make a difference, then we probably won't get along. If you're voting/voted for Donald Trump, no need to read any further, I'm sure we won't get along.
I'm a single dad and I'm not sure it is possible to love being a parent more. I am proud of the energy and effort I put into being a great parent and have always put my kids first. But, my daughter just this past August left for college (she's studying abroad in France) and my son is 15 and spends much of his time with friends, so it's time for me to get back out there and see what might happen and I'm excited about the possibilities.
I am looking for a partner who is intelligent, confident, kind, has a good sense of humor (a wicked one is even better), liberal, open minded, good communicator, doesn't expect me to read her mind, can be direct, likes to have fun, doesn't take herself too seriously, enjoys going to movies, concerts, good meals, snuggling by the fire, and can appreciate satire. And, if you were a big fan of the Daily Show with Jon Stewart then definitely write me a message, as there’s a high likelihood we will get along.
I love to read, Harlan Coben, Daniel Silva, Robert Crais, Greg Iles and Michael Connelly
Game of Thrones, House of Cards, Ray Donovan, Mozart in the Jungle, The Affair, Fargo
Music: Greenday, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Young the Giant, Tears for Fears, The Cure
Food: If it's good food, I'm there, I love all kinds, from gourmet food trucks (Off the Grid) to dining in the French Quarter in New Orleans (love cajun), or just about any place in Yountville.
A good shower to start the day
Cool/clean sheets to end the day
A good book to read
I know, that's not six, but more is better, right?
You are a great communicator
You are a fan of delicious flavor (if you get this reference, you may just be the one for me)
You are assertive
You are liberal
You have kids or you enjoy children
