Am purposely leaving out the stuff like walks on the beach, come on we all like that, right?
I profess and practice being a gentleman. Was raised to be one and am passing this on. Lead by example and teach in the teachable moment. I try my best (am not perfect by any stretch) to think of how I would want to be treated given the other persons scenario. Respecting others opinions and LISTENING fully is part of that.
We all know that men and women are different. We speak differently, we hear differently--through different filters. I have and will continue to listen more than I speak.
Fortunately I feel that loving others (having a heart that is open to love), albeit a risk, is well worth the gamble. I adore my loved ones and am a giver. This for the time being is about my children. They are my highest priority. They are young--I had them later in life and have a heightened sense of appreciation for them. No, I didn’t marry a young trophy wife--no thank you. Remember, science is a wonderful thing. They are the greatest, most-beautiful, smart, sometimes obnoxious, partially annoying, loud at times-- LOVES OF MY LIFE. Being their Dad has enhanced my life more than I can express.
I also have a bit of a romantic naughty side--it's a good thing. It's not something that can be explained here. This is part of a romantic nature.
Forgiveness is a gift and a process. It is important to me to have those in my life who can and have forgiven and moved on. Harboring ill will only hurts you not the person who has hurt you.
Who am I looking for? This is one of those things that I'll know when I see/meet her. Guess I am waiting to get hit by lightening.....
Finally, it's not hard for me to be open and honest. In fact I've been a little too open at times. I can't help that, its the way I was built. My photos are current, and my profile is accurate. If yours is not, please pass me by. Thanks for understanding.
I am fortunate to have a a great non-denominational church I attend almost weekly. I am doing my best to live by the things I learn there. Still working on me :-)
Am an american mutt with a predominantly Italian background.
I love to ski in Colorado/Utah, hit a concert at Chastain, the beach, mountains--it's more what you make of the time than the place.
Enough about me, what about you?
