I can get dressed up and go somewhere nice or just put on blue jeans and kick back - both suit me well. I play nice in the sandbox with everyone. I am nurturing yet competitive, silly yet serious. An intelligent debate over dinner can be just as exciting as going to a party with friends.
When I go to the movies, a comedy almost always wins out since I am always looking for an opporunity to laugh or just smile. I love to joke around with people and can take it as well as I can dish it out.
While I enjoy being silly, there is always time for love and romance. I believe the only way to reap the benefits of true, deep love is to open yourself up to receive it. I try to be completely open and honest in relationships. A good relationship is one that affords you the opportunity to be completely open and yet feel safe. I try to avoid passing judgement on others as I have found that it rarely does any good. I am continually evolving as a person both personally and professionally. I enjoy learning new things and trying new activities. Working in a maintance position has given me a wide variety of life skills that I often call upon.
I am the father of one wonderful daughter (23) who doesnt with me.
I am happiest when I can be myself. I value honesty and appreciate relationships that allow me to be completely open and still feel safe. I don't believe in a single soul mate yet to be found. I think that finding love is a little luck, faith, work and a lot of determination.
People seem to come to me for advice which baffles me since I am as "human" as the next person. I think my ability to communicate rationally and effectively is what they really appreciate. I try to live by the belief of personal accountability - if I said it or did it, I own it. I'm not too proud to admit I've made mistakes but try really hard to avoid having to do so.
A great match for me would be someone that is successful yet humble, mature yet playful, hardworking yet affectionate. My match should be open to the possiblity of a long-term relationship or love developing. I would love to be able to go have fun together or just home watching a movie but also want to feel strong enough in a relationship to have time to do our own things away from each other. My partner has to feel comfortable hearing and saying affectionate things. I am not looking for a super sappy woman, just one that likes the way it feels to express affection.
If I sound like a good match for you, email me and I will be happy to share more about myself. I may not be the first choice but im the right choice.
