Well a little about me, I'm ex-Navy and have been living here by the beach for over 20 years now. I love the beach and the ocean. I spend a lot of time outside, either working around the house or hitting the trails mountain biking. I'm into pretty much anything if it's outside, I also do a lot of surf kayaking during the summer, and touring kayaking all year around. Some people would say that I'm quiet, but that's only until I get to know someone, also I like to listen more then talk when meeting someone new. I'm not into playing games or any drama, I have had enough of that over the past year to last a life time. I'm also very honest and don't believe in lying to the person that I'm with. I also think that the person that you are with should also be your best friend. And there is nothing wrong with a man being a gentleman, getting the door or a chair, small things like that, to show respect. I would like to get to know someone first and then take things from there. If it turns into something more, that is great, if not, at least I made a new friend. I believe in working hard, but also taking the time off to enjoy life. I do have a job (which I'm sure is plus on this site for a guy), right now I'm working at a winery that an old friend of mine owns and I also have a couple of different small business that I'm in the process of growing. I'm more into a quiet evening either at home or out, then going out to a crowded bar and partying. Sorry that I don't have more photos, but I'm the one that is usually behind the camera then in front of it (one of the businesses). If you would like to know more about me, please feel free to ask me.
I would like a change to get the know the person a little bit first, that way you can have a better idea of the things that she likes, to try and make the first date that much more special. The first date doesn't have to be a movie or dinner, that why I think it isn't a bad idea to get to know them a little bit, before the first date.
