Genuine, FUN, well-balanced, honest, smart and a very young 54 year old professional male seeks similar woman. Even though I could be completely comfortable as a single man the rest of my life, I still believe that there is a unique woman out there that could be my best friend, lover, confidant, and partner in crime. That may be asking for a lot, but my attitude is why settle just for the sake of settling?
I have a wide variety of interests and friends. Consider myself to be a most un-average, average guy! I’m the proud dad of two smart, good looking young men. Both graduated from college now and gainfully employed in their respective fields!
The following provides an idea of some of things I enjoy doing and have done. Would be great to have somebody special with whom to share these activities. Hanging at home and cooking a good meal can be just as fun. I do really like to cook...and I haven’t even poisoned anyone...yet.

I’m not Beckham, but I do keep myself in good shape. I'm very athletic, easy on the eyes, a loyal friend, good communicator, intelligent, savvy and very straight forward. Physical chemistry is as important to a relationship as is the intellectual and emotional aspects. I’m not everyone’s cup of tea and you may not be mine. It’s not to be taken personally either way. I would prefer my partner be somebody that keeps themselves in shape, is active, GENUINE, smart, fun and easy going. If you have a million rules as to how a relationship should be, we probably won't be a match. Although there are some givens, there isn't a perfect relationship guide (sorry Dr Phil and Oprah). A relationship needs to be developed and shaped together, each one unique built from mutual respect, compromise and honesty. And, don't sweat the small stuff, but do those small things that make a difference!
Thank you for reading. If any of this strikes a chord with you, I'd like to hear from you.
