I'm a nice guy. Emotionally stable. Financially stable. My ex- and I are friends because peace is always better than war; especially when you have a child. Good conservationist, not boring, witty and funny. Affectionate, romantic, likes holding hands, likes kissing, likes cuddling, and likes to give gentle caresses. Intelligent, smart, practical, respectful of others, treat others as I would like to be treated, problem solver, very curious, always wanting to learn more about things and people of interest (like yourself), compassionate, helpful, courteous, sympathetic, out-going, calmness (but still waters do run deep). Independent and strong, but I do not want to spend the rest of my life alone, I want someone with me for the rest of my life. I stand by the rule of "doing the right thing" even when that stance isn't popular and may cause issues.
Never thought that at this point in my life I'd be looking for my life partner. It seemed easier to do when I was younger.
The first date is actually the first time we meet face-to-face. I prefer to meet a lady at a place of her choosing so that she'll have a degree of comfort and safety. Usually I prefer a place with a great atmosphere and isn't too noisy so that we can easily talk to one another. I prefer to meet for a drink or two. If the locale, and the weather, is permitting it is nice to go for a walk and continue our discussion of getting to know each other.
