My self-summary
Hello. I'm wondering how it would be possible to really impress upon you what my true nature is in word here, but I will try.
I can tell you that I have a love for art and that I am a hopeless romantic.
I believe that trust is the most important ingredient in a relationship followed by honesty and dedication. I hope you agree...
I dream of meeting a wonderful woman with the chance of finding something real, a commitment that will last. I know this is what you want too. A dream of...a given chance to know something true.
At first glance I'll have a difficult time getting past what I see in your eyes, wanting to take as much time as I can there...amazing....studying each breath, every heart beat, you're driving me crazy. ; )

A few things about me...
I am a gentleman first, always. You see that I am friendly, I'm easy to talk to, I have a good sense of humor and I am interested in what others have to say.. I know how important your words are and I'm listening.
I truly care about others, their feelings and it's my nature to act as confidant or lend an ear when needed.
I was very shy growing up, not so much shy now, have plenty to say and enjoy good conversation topics unlimited.
I can be feisty and opinionated but do not have to win anything and agree to disagree respectfully regardless one's political bent or personal beliefs.
I truly do believe in tolerance and forgiveness.
A thing that I am not is a player. I am loyal. These words do translate in reality.
As I said...I am a romantic. I am affectionate and dedicated to showing these to you..
I am also a highly skilled craftsman. I had a long career in Painting and Decorating with art, antiques, and restoration
2nd nature to me now.
What I’m doing with my life
I am enjoying what I love to do. My love for antiques and anything related to old houses has me in the antique and home restoration business and hunting for old treasure, art and antiques. I'm happy about myself and the prospect of good things to come. I intend on enjoying more of the important things life offers. Contentment is important. A romantic relationship bound by trust is what I am looking for. I know there is that special lady out there ..hiding. Don't be shy. Take a chance. Say hi.
I’m really good at
Challenge me....I'll let you win if the payoff is something special
like....... any gift from your heart. Hugs are fine. Are you in a romantic mood? Hmm.
On the physical skill side of things I was a pretty good all-around athlete; football, baseball, swimming. Loved shooting pool, threw tournament darts all over The City.
I'm a musician(drums). A craftsman by trade I was a high end Painting/Decorating Contractor for 35yrs. My real love is home restoration/preservation. I've been buying and selling antiques for many years and love restoring anything antique.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have never asked . This doesn't seem too modest of a person, but I've been told the friendly smile. I guess I get a few "looks"
but who knows? That's a tough one.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I feel fortunate to have been born and raised in the cultural infusion San Francisco is so blessed with.
I enjoy "Old House Journal" anything architectural, art and antique auction publications.
American Picker, Counting Cars, American Restoration, Pawn Stars are staples for this picker.
Yes food..really good food..not picky , love just about the entire menu.
Movies are less seen lately but I like 'em to thrill, excite and move my mind to new places.
Music is at my core as one influenced by a performing/teaching mother and audiophile father. #1 is the Blues, listening or playing. Rock, Jazz, Swing ..I love all music.
Romantic music can be influential.. ;)
Six things I could never do without
Family/children, air, water, music, freedom, the Challenge of Dreams/Fulfillment..through our gifts to each other.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to please you because I see that you really care.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either working on the computer(business and pleasure), out for a drive to hit some fave spots or visiting friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I might seem a bit shy at first, but I'll share if you share...
You should message me if
If I've left an impression on you and you can't resist....
The two of us
