I have a daughter who recently started school (yes, I cried on the first day). Had her on my own at time when I was in between relationships. I've always been nuts about kids and animals.
Like everyone on this site, I love international travel. Try to get out of the country once a year. The further, the better.
I'm convinced it is the simple things in life that are the greatest pleasures. Taking Max for a walk and watching him sniff the flowers; watching my daughter come up with some silly new antic; listening to music; and big bellly laughs make my day.
Pertinents for the guy I seek: uses fewer hair care products than I do; is stable, smart, secure, and truly comfortable with the person he has become. I'm less impressed by sky diving, flying a plane, or crossing the finish line in record time than I am by quiet confidence, a sincere smile, excellent computer skills, and chivalry.
