I think its time for the real thing!
I work hard in this economy to pay my bills and still hope to retire someday! Retire from worrying about money to beginning a new life spending time doing what I enjoy, with a woman I enjoy as much as she does me! Isn't that what everyone wants? The hard part is making it come true. Onto the more mundane, but important: I have all the things necessary to take full advantage of both seasons (summer and not summer) in this beautiful desert oasis and they are all paid for. I own a home in a nice part of town with necessary desert ameneties. I love to cook, enjoy educational tv, Cub games, thought-provoking conversation over a bottle of wine and slap-stick humor! Fitness is important as well as a healthy diet, with occasional cheating. ;) Cannot be around smokers or pet dander...sorry, both make me asthmatic.
In closing, I neglected to mention something that means a lot to me: making a child smile / laugh is among the finest things in life. That applies to the person I'm dating too.
