***** UPDATE 1/7/2014 - I have met someone very special to me and I am not interested in meeting anyone else. Best of luck in your searches, that special someone is out there. *****
I am respectful, hard working, 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 7 years and my main focus has been on my daughters who live with me full time. 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 also love music and might be listening to just about anything depending on my mood. I might be listening to driving rock while running, 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 or the Grateful Dead? 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 love the free spirit of a hippie chick, the thoughts and ideas of an intelligent woman, the confidence of a modern independant 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. A kind and tender woman with whom I could spend hours talking about nothing and not getting bored. I would love to look at her eyes and understand her without words.
I want to build a future to offer the best for each other. We would complement each other physically, emotionally and intellectually. Appreciate the best in each other, accept our shortcomings and encourage each other to grow. We share a lot of time and a lot of things. In the same time we respect each other’s differences, privacy, careers, friends, hobbies and interests, free time and personal space. We are together to build a place of comfort, happiness and harmony. Nobody is perfect and I am not looking for perfection, only for my soul mate. Different backgrounds bring more excitement, passion and romance in the relationship; we may learn a lot from one another and enrich our personalities.
