I enjoy the outdoors, good movies, conversation, hot tubing, and good friends. I like most music. I am a well adjusted easy going person. I kayak (not white water), canoe and enjoy four wheeling. I have a geeky side. I'm looking for a kind lady that may be interested in long term if things work out. She needs to be intelligent, funny, kind hearted, self sufficient, tolerant and no emotional baggage. I have achieved my professional goals and am looking to fulfill the rest of my life. I like chatting one on one and in person. Not into clubs or dancing. Looking for a lady with a positive perspective on life. I'm a cuddler. No drama. I am comfortable expressing my emotions and would prefer someone similar. I take things for face value. I'm not a mind reader. If you want me to know something tell me. If I think it, I will say it. Relationship-wise I move slow and let the lady make the first move. Do not send inappropriate pics. If my heart isn't there neither is anything else. Not into sports or TV. No high maintenance women. I'm not on-line every day so don't get upset if I don't immediately respond. A person has to have a good heart, good mind and a desire to communicate. If you hold grudges keep moving, true love allows one to see past imperfections and forgive. These are the foundations. I'm very accepting and expect the same. I like appropriate PDAs. Look around, too many couples/marriages have lost their fire. When I give my heart, it's them and only them. I love kids and good ones are a blessing. I don't need someone to wait on me. I may be old fashioned but I can take care of myself. No chameleons please. I don't have time for that, just be yourself. I am a handy person. If I don't know how to do something I'll find out how. Obstacles are just that days challenges. I usually don't take the easy path. I learn and see more taking the long way. I guess what I need is a true friend, someone to stand beside me. I'm looking for someone I can stand behind when they need support, beside when they need a friend, below when they need lifted up and in front of when they need protection from the bad in the world. Yea, I'm a hopeless romantic.
