It would be great to find someone special to spend time with while discovering each of our needs and backgrounds. Finding mutual interests and sharing those is the best way to determine compatibility. It’s important that I am proud of who you are, not because of what you earn but rather because of your kind, loving, and gentle nature. You are intelligent, strong, and accomplished but not boastful or arrogant.
You have been in a long term relationship and understand the give and take that is requires. And, I hope that you have children, they are a great training ground, they teach us to move beyond ourselves and the what’s in it for me attitude, they allow us to learn to give without expectation.
While I enjoy spontaneity please understand that due to a busy life that involves my career and family, it is necessary to plan ahead, nothing crazy like months more like a week or two.
I am emotionally strong and not withholding, I am direct, passionate, determined, focused, and a full participate in life. You are all the above and patient!
If you are willing to share your life and time, I'm willing to do the same. If I enjoy a certain song or songs, my friends will receive the CD. Your birthday may be a bigger day to me than perhaps you, and I promise to always do my best to make it memorable!
My Italian mom and German grandmother have taught me that cooking is an expression of love perhaps that is why I am also a former restaurant owner.
You will find that I am honest and love people, that I will never play games or lie and will treat you with respect and kindness. I will allow you to take the lead and be the man, yep, old school! Your family and friends will like me and encourage you to make me a part of your life; I really want mine to say the same, as friends and family always seem to be a good litmus test.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
The first date should consist of a quick get together, no discomfort in case its not a perfect match. Perhaps coffee or a glass of wine??
