I work to live, not live to work (though I do love my job).
I believe the only reasons for life, are love and happiness.
I believe that the soul is easily seen through the eyes, and that actions speak louder than words.
I'm very happy, slightly silly, a bit goofy at times, and a hopeless romantic. I believe in total openness and honesty, and will not tolerate lies or drama. I'm very optimistic, and can't stand pessimism. I'm a good person, with strong moral fiber. I was raised Lutheran, converted to Catholic for family reasons, but don't really feel committed to any one church. I believe in God, and have felt his presence in my life. Let’s just leave it at that for now.
The most important thing I am looking for in a woman?
Spark: That feeling you get when you meet someone, you know there's something special about them, something that draws you to them, and you just "have" to find out what it is. I crave passion, and will not settle for less. Also, you must be a genuinely happy person. I want my partner to be feminine, but not a Barbie doll. I want a partner who is smart, witty, and confidant in herself.
I'm brand new to internet dating; it’s hard getting out to meet new people, especially when I'm a full time dad (if you don't love kids, move on. I have three girls, 9, 6, & 4). So here I am, giving this a shot. I'm not here for a quick hook up or fling. But at the same time I'm not desperately searching for a new wife either. I'm not going to settle for just anyone, I really want to find true love. Someone who makes me smile every time I look at her. Someone who I can share my life with, completely. I'm a big fan of cuddling and affection in general. Though it will probably be some time before I feel comfortable enough to introduce you to my kids.
If you've read this far, shoot me an email. You never know if something will work until you try. ;)
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
If we make it to a first date, I'm sure that would include dinner and a walk along the river. Eventually though, I'm going to want to dance. Targis is also nice, or having a drink next to the fire at Roxy's wine bar. Generally we'd have a nice time getting to know one another.
