Do you follow the golden rule? Are you passionate with everything you do? Affectionate and fun to be with? Do you have confidence, a good sense of who you are and at times just want to play? Do you have the ability to make the mundane surreal? If so I would love to hear from you!
I am a professional white male. Recently drilled first oil well in N. Dakota in 2012 and went well so drilled and completed 5 more this summer, and permitted 3 more to drill in November. I also just went out to Bismark N. D. and argued a case before the Supreme Court in September so I have been busy! Update...I won a unanimous decision from the N. Dakota Supreme Court! The ruling was handed down in the last week of October.
Very athletic, I enjoy many sports including scuba diving, sailing, skiing, (water & snow), tennis, Para sailing, jet skiing, kayaking, and some rock climbing, to name a few and also enjoy watching some sports live and on TV as well, but NOT a sports nut or addict! I am a very outgoing person always looking for the next adventure, but also enjoy relaxing in front of a fireplace with a special woman. I have a charming personality and would be described to be the laid-back confident type. I have a quick wit and a great sense of humor. To me laughter is music for the soul, so I prefer someone with a great sense of humor, even self-depreciating humor like my own.
I am compassionate and passionate as well...To me life is all about passion...passion in your work, appreciation of the arts, making love, hobbies, travel, play, embracing nature, ...everything!......an understanding what life is really about! Life void of passion is not living, it is merely existing in the commonality of what is offered and considered the norm. I have had a passion for photography, and a darkroom as well as five cameras. Of course everything now is digital and Photoshop 8 so a lost art. I have been told that I am generous to a fault...is that possible?
Family and friends are important to me and they should be to you as well. My family is close as we are in sevral businesses together, although a brother and sister live out of state.
Many weekends I can be found at one of the two lake homes playing and/or relaxing and very much enjoy cooking/BBQ there as well as at home. Actually I am an accomplished cook, both homestyle and gourmet meals.....I have posted photos of the same not to brag, rather to impart to the reader of this profile that is my lifestyle. My ex didn't like leaving town for weekends, so if you are a homebody that needs to stay home every weekend....we are not a match!
I am monogamous by nature and am not looking for several women, just one special woman!! If you want casual hook-ups or to spend time togrther just drinking, I am not the guy for you, go to the next profile.
I have a proclivity to wait on my partner too much, as I have the caregiver personality. I have also been told that I have the patience of Job by my ex's shrink...lol.
I have a classical education with four degrees, the last a Juris Doctorate, and treat all women with respect.
It seems many people on these dating sites list what the want or what the don't want. I believe many people know what they don't want from past experiences, however until you know your TRUE SELF you will have difficulty finding what you think you want. You must have a clear idea what you are looking for that matches who you are, not who you think your are and an idea of what that is best suited for.
“Don't waste your love on somebody, who doesn't value it.”
? William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR IS MY IMPERFECT MATCH!!
You come to love not by finding the perfect person,
but by seeing an imperfect person perfectly.

WOMEN (this is a joke read to the end or u will think I am a jerk)
A real woman is a man's best friend.
She will never stand him up and never let him down.
She will reassure him when he feels insecure and comfort him after a bad day.
She will inspire him to do things he never thought he could do;
to live without fear and forget regret.
She will enable him to express his deepest emotions,
and give in to his most intimate desires.
She will make sure he always feels as though he's the most
handsome man in the room and will enable him to be the most confident,
sexy, seductive and invincible.
I'm thinking of VODKA. It's VODKA that does all that sh*t.
”This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.”
SIMPLY PUT: IF YOU TELL THE TRUTH, YOU DON'T HAVE TO REMBER ANYTHING!...By: think Mark Twain.
The measure of a man is not by the size of his bank account, but rather the size of his heart, integrity, honesty, character, as well as the ripple effect created by his goodness, trust and compassion toward others. "
You don't love a woman because she's beautiful,
She is beautiful because you love her.

If you are looking for a LTR read this:
I want you to get swept away... I want you to levitate...to sing with rapture... to dance like a dervish...be deliriously happy...or at least let yourself open to be. I know it's a cornball thing...but love is passion...obsession... something you can't live without. I say fall head over heels...find somebody you can love like crazy...and will love you the same way back. How do you find him/her? Well ...you forget your head and listen to your heart. The truth is there is no sense living your life without this...to make the journey and not fall deeply in love...well...you haven't lived a life at all. But you have to try...because if you haven't tried you haven't lived!!!! Therefore...stay open...who knows lightning could strike.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Somewhere fun!.... but quite so we can hear each other speak..... so no movie! Happy hour, java cafe, dinner whatever works for you, I am open.
In light of the following quotes...I am up for anything!
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by things you didn't do than by the ones you did. ~ Mark Twain
"The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.... "-Walter Bagehot
A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.....George Bernard Shaw
Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
Some people move our souls to dance. They awaken us to new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom.
Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon.
They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never ever the same.
Love is the law of our being.
~ Mohandas K. Gandhi ~
