Looking for something more serious, but not in a rush. I'm not terribly comfortable talking about myself. If the list of hobbies/interests above match your own, send me a note.
A lot of folks have crazy expectations of romance and sex and whatnot...it's nuts. Just because it happens in movies and on TV doesn't mean that's the way relationships unfold in real life! Let go of your expectations! I want a more serious relationship, with commitment and all.
Being 40 allows me to look back a bit and simply know who and what situations to avoid in life. I definitely don't want to be involved in anyone's baby drama, financial problems, etc. So I'm careful about adding people in my life. It's not to say that these people aren't "good" or don't have value in society, simply that we see the world in a much different manner. I need someone whose world view is broad, someone who understands the true meaning of life and isn't caught up in materialism, a lame job, and so forth.
Please be passionate about something... anything. Be beyond "survival mode" in life and have the ability to stand on your own feet. You understand that the future is not something that happens, it's something you create.
I love sweethearts and the girl next door... seriously, I will melt for you.
