I am respectful, hardworking, intelligent, well-traveled, laid back, loyal, honest, open-minded and believe communication is key in a relationship. I think I am a gentleman and I still believe in true love. That might sound old fashioned, but I think getting back to family values is important. I am not looking to have more children, but if you have kids and don't mind that I do read on.
I have been divorced for 8 years and my main focus had been on my daughter's who live with me full time. My ex is still a very important part in my daughters lives and is around quite a bit, as a co-parent and a friend. If this is something that you can't handle it is probably best to move along now. Still interested!
Besides my daughters, I am most passionate about food and music. I love everything about food and I am a sponge for everything I can learn about it. I love the Food Network, books, food blogs and would love to attend a culinary institute. Not to become a chef, but to improve my skills to make wonderful meals for myself and my family.
I love how music instantly transports you to a specific time or place. A memory or feeling. I might be listening to just about anything depending on my mood. I might be listening to punk to wake up, some jazz at work or jamband music heading home. Do you like Grace Potter, Govt Mule, moe., Yonder Mountain String Band, STS9, Ben Harper, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Matisyahu, Umphrey's McGee or the Grateful Dead, Widespread Panic, String Cheese Incident? Never heard of most of them you say! Are you interested in listening to something new? I would love to broaden your musical appreciation, so let's explore together. Come share your love of music with me, i'll share mine!
I spend a lot of time thinking about the tiny house movement and ways to simplify my life. It could be a tiny house on wheels or maybe a cabin in the woods. I really want to find a way to "live off grid" BUT still have internet I want to learn how to live smaller in order to live larger.
I love the free spirit of a hippie chick, the thoughts and ideas of an intelligent woman, the confidence of a modern independent woman and the softness of a sensitive/sensual woman. I'm looking for an honest, loving, caring, stable, responsible, and loyal woman. She is strong, yet gentle and knows exactly what she wants. An ideal relationship for me is mutual love, understanding, deep and honest communication, trust and passion.
First meetings are definitely for getting to know each other, so for coffee or a meal initially, in a place where you can talk and see how it goes from there.
