I'm a rather easy going kind of guy who is looking for a nice girl that will allow me to be affectionate and caring toward her. I can be both shy and bold, talkative and quiet (great confidante), very relaxed and energetic, pragmatic and idealistic. I'm comfortable with myself although I'd love to be in better physical shape and lose some extra pounds (working on it!). I love humour and laughing aloud, deep and meaningful conversation into the wee hours. Occasionally, I'll wax philosophically and sometimes am analytical.
I can be playful, silly, goofy although I am a mature man who is responsible and practical. I like being thoughtful, caring, intimate, physically affectionate and accessible. One of the greatest joys in my life is to be able to make my girl smile and bring her happiness. I'm in touch with my emotions. I believe in being supportive, sensitive and very loyal. I know my limits and am not afraid to ask for help (or directions).
In some ways, I'm liberal and spiritual. I'm definitely not religious. I believe in existence on a higher plane. I have lots of thoughts, ideas and theories regarding life, the universe and everything in it (though we really know the answer to it all is 42). The strongest attributes of any relationship are sincerity, patience, open-mindedness and trust. I truly love, respect and appreciate women, discovering unique things about them that appear attractive to me.
Some of the things I enjoy are: music of all kinds, astronomy, driving trips/local travel, walks, shopping, movies, being a homebody, animals (I have cats), reading, doing yard work, housekeeping (or "house-mousing" as I've been told), outdoors stuff, bicycling, watching television and renting movies, doing pencil puzzles and playing games (especially Scrabble), camping, snuggling, cooking, watching sports (Go Ducks, Blazers and 49ers!), window shopping, photography, computers (I'm proud of my geekness), tapping away on my iPad and the internet, science fiction (love it all, particularly Star Trek, Doctor Who, Dune, Firefly, Stargate, etc.) and more.
My ideal girl is intelligent, affectionate, caring, open-minded, realistic, fun, conversive, sensible, adventurous and comfortable with herself. Preferably, she knows how to reciprocate, maybe likes sports, is self-sufficient and enjoys many of those geeky things I like.
Sorry to say, I don't have kids I'm leaning toward not having any although I will keep the option open.. My thing at this stage in life is focusing on my special girl and developing a relationship between the two of us (and our pets), exploring life together.
