What I can tell you about me is that I'm very down to earth, easy going with a wonderful and tasteful sense of humor. I'm very dedicated to my career for years that has helped mold me into the well traveled person that I am today.My career made me a better person with a much different outlook on life seeing and experiencing what it's like for others, or families living in third word countries. Enjoy dancing, biking, reading, traveling, the classical music, and the ballet. I am fit, healthy, and health-conscious; very active, optimistic and open-minded.I enjoy my profession and my job because I learn new things every day.I am very happy with my life but I'd like to have someone special to share it every day. Someone honest, happy, affectionate, with a good heart.My reason for being on here is because I believe we each make our own destiny and if one does not make their self available, chances are slim in finding the love we each so desire.I believe the aspect of love is viewed differently by each individual; it's a very personal feeling, mysterious and magical. I may not ever find "true love" the one and only, but I will have fun searching!!!I am interested in a committed, monogamous, long-term relationship..I love life, thrive on positive energy and am truly grateful for my ability to maintain joy from within, not depending on outside circumstances or other people to make me happy. I have an open mind, am nonjudgmental, have many interest. Hardworking, honest, and direct - with a strong streak of generosity and sympathy. I have a creative mind, quick wit, and am secure in my knowledge and abilities. I am happiest when active and productive. I am a hopeless romantic, I open doors for my woman. I can proudly boast that I am consistent with my random acts of kindness. Unfortunately, I can also be a huge pain in the butt. Demanding, proud, you name it - I've been it. After that glowing review: I am actively looking for a partner, future friend and possible wife. You will enjoy me to eternity - I will make sure of that fact. My woman will be showered with compliments. I am the guy that says - sweetie, go take a long bath and I will take care of dinner. Too good to be true? Try me. The plan to find my partner is the "friends first" approach..At our age, we not only know who we are but what we are looking for...(but please allow room for surprises!)...We're looking for that last love, last companion, who can still knock our coldness off, but who is safe and warm, dependable, someone we find we can trust with our innermost thoughts/feelings. There are so many things we still want to do, but would so much prefer having that special someone to share those things with. We don't mind having our alone time...sometimes we even treasure it for awhile. We don't need to be glued to the hip....but we like it sometimes. I don't want you to stop living in your world, nor do you want me to stop living in mine,but there's probably a middle ground that we can.Physical appearance is not the most important thing for me in looking for a partner. Our compatibility and my partner's character are much more important to me.Just because something has failed before, doesn't mean it will fail again.I don't let past disappointments weigh too heavily in my expectations of future likelihood of success.When I meet someone and there are big complications(a long commuting distance, entanglements from a previous relationship, etc.)it doesn't deter me. I figure if this relationship is worth having we can work just about anything out.I believe you can "teach an old dog new tricks," that "tomorrow will be a brighter day," and that you can "forgive and forget." All the cliches aside, I believe people can change and you can repair a badly hurt relationship.I want a relationship based in trust, respect,communication, and lots of love and passion.I want someone who will love me for who i am but not for what i have.
