Some of things I am most passionate about: Traveling and learning, my favorite words are " Please proceed to your boarding gate for departure!" I’ve been bitten HARD by the travel bug and have been lucky enough to visit various countries. I love going out on my own, without a tour and meeting local people and generally immersing myself into the local culture. I try really hard to brighten the day of everyone I meet, even if that’s just by asking a cashier how they are or holding the door open for someone. I try to always think of that quote by the Dalai Lama: “Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.”
The most important thing I am looking for in a person is: Someone who is in love with life and open to exploring all its possibilities. Travel is a really big part of my life and I’d love to meet someone who wants to join me on my many adventures. I'm looking for companionship that is built on respect for one another, a solid friendship and a shared desire to fully experience life, whether we are at home together or out for an evening.
What I am looking for: I think true romance is about getting to know someone and connecting on a deep level – it’s more than just physical attraction. I'm looking for companionship that is built on respect for one another, a solid friendship and a shared desire to fully experience life, whether we are at home together or out for an evening. A woman that is balanced, who likes to socialize as well as spend time at home together cooking. I love a great kisser, hugger, lip gloss, perfume and wonderful shoes: all those things that somewhat define you as a woman to me! A woman who will appreciate me just as much as I will appreciate her and who possesses openness, honesty, unselfishness, fun, and passion. The match for me will cause me to think about her 20 times a day while I'm in the middle of work, on the phone, or having lunch...and I will smile.
The most influential person in my life: Definitely has been my father. He lived until his mid 80s and was beloved by everyone he met. He gave me my curious nature and taught me to care before I think and to think before I change my mind. My father treated everyone with respect, kindness and gratitude – which has really shaped the way I conduct myself in all my relationships – particularly with women.
My friends describe me as: warm, generous, thoughtful and caring. I can be forthright and direct when I need to be. Not in a bar-fight kind of way… but I do know how to get what I want! If this sounds good to you and you have read this far then please send me an email and say "hello", I look forward to hearing from you!
