I am the All-American guy your mother would love you to bring home, but I am a feisty, irreverent rebel who will please you as well. I am an attorney with a master's degree in business and a former reporter for a major metropolitan newspaper. I am ambitious and driven with a serious no-nonsense personality. At the same time, I can be surprisingly fun and spontaneous and come complete with a great sense of humor. I am a fierce competitor - both as an attorney and as one of the top 10 tennis players in the Southwest, regardless of age, and one of the top 50 players in my age group in the nation. My favorite sport growing up was soccer, and, at 5'8" and 155 lbs., I still have a soccer player's body. I do not mean to brag, but whenever I am at a formal event, my date invariably whispers in my ear, "You are the most handsome man here." Though that compliment may be an exaggeration, she, seeing me exuding authority in my business suit or tuxedo, believes it in her heart. Speaking of hearts, I am a romantic who loves to give my special someone gifts - not because I am supposed to but because I would like her to have symbols of my affection for her. With my special someone on the weekend, I like to spend at least one full day with her, depending on what is happening in the area, going to arts and crafts and culinary festivals, attending concerts and sporting events, seeing the latest worthwhile movies, window shopping, searching for new and exciting activities and dining at the best restaurants, whether they be gourmet or dives. While those activities are fun and fulfilling, the most important thing is that we are together enjoying each other's company, and, if we are right for each other, time will stand still. In a girlfriend and potential wife, I am looking for a passionate woman with spunk who spellbinds me with her beauty and leaves me in awe of her abilities. I need an intelligent woman for intellectual stimulation but value intellectual curiousity and depth of character more than raw intelligence. Perhaps most importantly, I desire a woman who, unlike most people over age 25, has not given up on her dreams. My ideal woman will have achieved certain goals she has set for herself, whatever those goals may be, but she still has a zest for life and her eye on reaching for the stars. In terms of beauty, I desire a classy woman whose impeccably groomed appearance makes me look twice every time she walks into the room, whether we are meeting for the first time or have been married for years. More specifically, I am looking for a fit and active woman, perhaps a current or former competitive athlete or maybe just a weekend warrior who loves hiking, yoga or another physical activity. My ideal woman could be 25 or 45, short or medium height, a blonde, brunette or redhead, but she must be slender with, pardon my bluntness, a flat stomach and tight ass. I am particularly attracted to a beautiful woman who makes herself even more captivating with her unique sense of style. Though this has become an overused expression, I am turned on by a sporty woman who is equally comfortable wearing a baseball cap or a formal gown. Or, in my own terminology, I picture my ideal woman at ease wearing a David Yurman bracelet and a $5 toe ring. Other necessary traits I value in a mate: integrity, honesty, loyalty, dependability, punctuality and a personality that is not overly moody. My ideal woman may sound like a tall order, but, when I find her, I will adore her with all my heart.
