I am an old fashioned guy, which means that I still like to be respectful, polite, courteous, open doors, and let you hold the umbrella when it rains.
I expect the same from a woman (except you just have to walk through the door), and please try not to poke me with my own umbrella?
I'm athletic and I enjoy a lot of activities (biking, boating, and swimming most often), but the pleasures of life are better when you are sharing smiles along the way. I go to a lot of sports events and concerts, I enjoy live music, pool halls, and dives, and especially waterside bars, but I also attend movies and plays, and enjoy discussing the performance over a glass of wine.
I don't feel 56 but I don't deny it either, honesty is another characteristic that I honor. Staying fit is the best way to stay young.
I enjoy being with families and kids (I was a Little League coach for 16 years), and babies seem to love me (but sometimes they are smelly so please keep them at a visual distance). And if it helps, my neighbor's dog Twinkie seems to like me.
I'm looking for a girl who is fun, smart, fit, and cute, and I hope that she would discover the same qualities in me.
I have a charming home and a happy life, a beautiful woman would be icing on the cake.
Everything starts with friendship and I seek that as a strong foundation for courtship.
ps - I live in a small community about halfway between Annapolis and Baltimore.
