First, I listed European for my ethnicity earlier because "Caucasian" is a goofy, nonsensical description. I'm an all-American white guy, but I guess if you need a label you could say I'm an "Anglo-Celtic-American."
I'm an honest, fun-loving, good guy with lots of interests and a positive outlook on life. Faith, family and country are important to me. I'm a pretty laid back kind of guy, I'm easily entertained and can find the joy in simple pleasures and the wonders of life. I've been blessed that I've had opportunities to travel and see some neat things around the world, and it has helped broaden my perspectives. I love to go new places, see new sights, gain new perspectives, and try new activities. I will try just about any food from anywhere in the world as long as I'm reasonably sure it's safe to eat and it doesn't repulse me in some obvious way. I have a pretty goofy sense of humor and I like to laugh and make people laugh, but I'm kind of reserved until I get to know you. I don't like rushing into relationships and I'm a bit guarded with my feelings until I establish some friendship and trust with someone. I really don't like the idea of dating someone who I can't consider to be a friend first, since my long-term goal is to be with someone who is my best friend in the world. I think it's a mistake to put romance ahead of compatibility, because the more compatible I feel I am with a woman, then the more romantic I want to be.
Having said that, I'm definitely open to making new friends even if the romance part isn't there.
A little bit about who I'm looking for. I like a woman with an independent spirit, a curious mind, a feminine grace, a caring heart, a gentle nature, a sense of adventure, a positive outlook, a goofy sense of humor, a contagious laugh, an easy smile, and a twinkle in her eye. I'd prefer someone who doesn't smoke and who isn't a party-girl, although enjoying a little social drinking is alright. I enjoy that myself occasionally. I'd prefer to meet a Christian woman or someone who holds to Judeo-Christian values. She should have a nurturing and responsible attitude towards children, whether she has any yet or not.
I don't like selfish, manipulative, irresponsible, lying, racist, materialistic women. If you are married or separated or in some other way legally or morally bound to another man, I'm not interested unless all you truly want is to make friends. I'm also not a big fan of profanity. I try to avoid it and I find conversations more productive with other people who try to avoid it. Besides, there are so many other great words to use...a good vocabulary is kind of sexy ;-)
I only listed Talk/e-mail as my level of interest here, that is what I consider my starting point. I am open to deeper relationships or making new friends in person, but would want to start out getting to know someone via e-mail or phone calls first, but if we click on the phone, then by all means let's get together. You really have to see a person face to face to understand and appreciate them completely and spending time together is obviously the goal.
Dinner will usually fall somewhere into a date, because it's a good time to talk and hunger will put a damper on the best laid plans for a nice date. Otherwise I'm open to any number of ideas. I like creative dates, but have found women won't always commit to a date if it requires too much planning ahead or requires a large chunk of time. I think being in good company is more important than where you go or what you do.
