Hello! Thanks for visiting my profile! A little bit about me, well first and foremost, I love to travel. Everywhere. From cross country road trips to fun day trips around the area. I love getting out to the beach or up into the mountains whenever I can. I've been to Europe a few times and I loved Germany, I want to go back soon! There is nothing like exploring castles, dining on the shores of Alpine lakes, and speeding down the Autobahn! There are plenty of other countries I want to visit as well, I hope you'd be up for some traveling too!
I'm equally happy dressing up in a fine suit and going to the theater or throwing on the outdoor duds and hitting the trails. I love being outdoors as much as I can. I'm looking for a partner to go out hiking, biking, BBQing, swimming, playing tennis, camping, canoeing, and anything else that sparks our fancy! I'm always up for visiting museums and historic sites as well as concerts and festivals.
I'm driven by a strong sense of respect, honor, and traditional values and I hope to find someone with similar views. I was raised with those true Southern Gentlemanly skills. I will open doors for you, give you massages, I actually enjoy listening to people's stories, and I'll probably even let you have the remote most of the time since I'm not big on watching lots of TV, haha. As for interests and hobbies, I have many different ones. I love to draw, build things (from furniture to plastic models), collect items for the museum that I plan to one day open, watch movies, listen to all kinds of music, play with electric trains, play my saxophone, play boardgames, play the occassional video game (especially the classics on Atari and NES), cook new recipes, work on my old 1966 Ford truck (my non-daily driver), and just have fun doing whatever! I've even recently taken up fencing and love it. I love life and I want a girl who enjoys getting out there and living it to the fullest as well as spending evenings curled up together taking it easy. Does that sound like you? If so I would love to hear from you!
I should also note that I love the South - especially Louisiana. The live Oak trees, the cicadas, the Cajun food, the music, the heat, the alligators, I love it all! And the Carolinas and Florida are wonderful too! I also have a love of Europe, especially Germany, that is as equally strong! There is just something about those places!
Well, for a first date, it could be anything. I don't limit myself to one type of first date formula.
I would be up for anything from getting a few drinks or a quiet dinner at a cozy restaurant followed by a nice evening stroll through the town or park to visiting a museum in D.C. and getting lunch at a hole in the wall cafe. Other first date options could be visiting the State Fair or Ren Faire or some local Festival and taking in all the rides, shows, contests, concerts, and great food. Any event that gives us time to talk to each other and explore something together - to me that's a nice first date. Ultimately, the place isn't as important as the ability to get to know each other better is.
