My self-summary
I am patient but forthright.
I am thoughtful and expressive.
I am a talker, but less so with age (that may not be completely true).
I believe in good communication along with an open mind and heart.
I have a great capacity to love.
I consider myself to be emotionally mature.
I value education, trying new things and building relationships.
I am a movie buff.
I am an animal person.
I appreciate family and history.
I am a good-natured and well-meaning person.
I act with my heart but am analytical and articulate.
I read a lot, typically when I am running or while listening to live music.
I enjoy getting people together to socialize, but have no problem heading out on my own, whether to Europe, hear some bluegrass or take a hike.
I enjoy running, ping-pong, chess, euchre, CatchPhrase, playing softball, tennis, soccer, volleyball and biking.
I will watch baseball or local football and basketball, but will not put the event or any television above going out and experiencing life or time shared with friends and family.
It is difficult to wake in the morning because I am a night person but I am readjusting.
I enjoy cooking as much as eating, and always prefer a healthy diet, though a buffet is never out of the question.

I really would appreciate someone willing to put forth the time and effort to communicate and make a new friend, but am looking for something serious, given the right circumstance.
I would think that a lady for me would mirror some of these characteristics, but am moreso looking for a complement in a partner, someone who is their own person.
Passion and chemistry are incredibly important, but you have to be willing to give someone a chance.
I think 5 word responses, judgment by picture and saying that ‘never in a million years did I think I would be on a dating site’ are silly, especially in light of the practicality the latter offers, an opportunity to meet someone you would not otherwise have.

Say what you mean, mean what you say, do what you say. The Golden Rule, savor each day, adhere to your priorities, satisfy your responsibilities, relax, embrace opportunity and smile.

I get this world and how demanding it is and how time flies but there are so many selfies in front of mirrors. It makes me so sad. Because well you guys are just too good.
