OH... about that photo. Add a goatee. In the interest of full disclosure, I like cozy fireplaces, rainbows, waterfalls, candlelit dinners, sunsets & the beach, AS MUCH AS THE NEXT GUY. Having said that, I am looking for companionship, a partner who is a mature, non game-playing, intelligent woman. Someone to make new memories with. Character, integrity emotional stability are important to me; someone who is solid because life is hard. She should be educated [some college], professional in appearance / demeaner self-sufficient. Should be established in life career or profession. Not necessarily looking for marriage but I am open. Someone who has similar interests including sports, local national politics, business. She should be in good health. Previous serious relationships should be over. Please, no "down-on-your-luck" types. Not looking for a "project"or someone barely scraping by, but an equal in interests, lifestyle, education what they want for the rest of their lives. I am a good father provider to my kids. I'm also thoughtful, thorough, yet direct & action-oriented. I like to find ideas, solutions to problems which are effective & fair to all. I am analytical, sometimes to a fault, but I consider consequences before moving forward. I relate to people best, one-to-one. Am non-confrontational; but will stand-up for what I believe. Don't usually jump on the latest trends; believe that history tells us alot about how we should live.
