I'm an Australian who lives and works in Oakland, CA.
I have my own green card, job, live work loft, motor cycle, truck, kids. I completed a degree in Architecture from an Australian university back in the mid 1980's.
I love to travel and have, since 1988, visited 53 countries so far and lived in 4.
I do my best to minimize my commute and would prefer dating someone local. That being Oakland, and surrounding cities, without paying for toll bridges etc. But its not a deal breaker.
I do my best to meet my responsibilities and enjoy my life. I work hard and like to play in my off hours.
I'm divorced with kids on a mostly predictable schedule. I like kids, mine are great, if you have kids maybe we can get them all together. For me this is a "would like" and is not a deal breaker.
In Chinese astrology I'm a horse.
I am a straight shooter, I speak directly and honestly. What you see here is the real me.
I am seriously looking for a significant other. Having said that, at 45 I have life experiences and am fully aware that there is a process to finding, meeting, dating and entering a meaningful relationship that will hopefully last the rest of my life.
I am looking for a woman who will take the time to get to know me and celebrate me for who I am. I want to live with someone (marriage very optional); be a family. Belong to a woman and feel loved.
Relationships are a process that is both hard work and I feel extremely rewarding; I hope I’m learning as I go and am improving.
A web site that I have found useful in this regard is : http://www.marriagebuilders.com/graphic/mbi3000_intro.html
If you are interested.
Dinner, drinks, play pool, take a walk and chat.
Hot tub if you are game ;-)
