I think that I am an easy going & respectful guy (most people would agree) with a basic desire to have fun & enjoy life. I am a very active person who enjoys being involved in community, fund raisers and am a person that gets things done. I own and operate a medium size real estate brokerage.
Don't let my age fool you -- most people who know me would readily say that I have the energy, go-power and stamina coupled with the presentation and mentality of a much younger person.
My ideal lady must have confidence in herself. A lady that is financially stable & can stand on her own. A lady that wants to do fun things and live life to the fullest. A lady that enjoys doing things with her man but has her own interests and direction.. A lady with a mischievous 'twinkle' in both her eye and self is a must. A warm, fun and sexy minded lady with romance in her heart and ballroom dancing in her feet. (I think I covered the full body??). Am I in fantasy-land? Only YOU can answer that!!!
Also, I would hope to find that 'special' lady within 25/50 miles of the Lenox-Pittsfield area. Anything further tends to make being spontaneous or engaging in a more active relationship somewhat too challenging.
UPDATE: I have become very involved in ballroom dancing -- began taking lessons in Feb 2011. I am totally addicted!!!! My 'special' lady absolutely must be an active dancer. I am really not interested in just casual dating but rather in developing a fun to serious relationship from a foundation of dancing together both on and off the oak.
I'd just like to add...
That I enjoy family -- especially doing things with the grand kids. I am a social athlete which means I am not too serious or great at any sport but do socially enjoy golf, tennis, skiing, skeet shooting, hiking and other low impact sports plus ballroom & country dancing. I enjoy dining out but at the same time, enjoy cooking at home. Am a Harley owner & especially enjoy taking Harley trips. Enjoy re-living my Italian heritage on a daily basis and enjoy the language, music and especially the great food. And traveling back to Italy----
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
First meetings are always a bit challenging -- so I would likely suggest a nice lunch or dinner at some quiet and comfortable restaurant --somewhere you feel safe and comfortable. I would hope the conversation would be like "show and tell" with the emphasis on 'tell'. Or if both of us had a common interest, I might suggest our first meeting in that environment -- might ease the jitters -----.
