Well fairly new to Online and POF and still figuring out my way around....,.,,
Well established and secure gentleman, lives in west end of Toronto in old, quiet neighbourhood - seeking companionship with dynamic and fun-loving young lady, ideally in 39 to 49 age range. Confidence, attitude, and open-mindness are key. Social skills and grace are important.
Boring 'suit and tie' during the week likes to chill out and kickback on weekends ...... outdoors, getting away, going out (after reading the Saturday Globe with coffee) or seeing what's going on in the city or elsewhere. Enjoy cooking when not rushed, and trying new dishes. Love to BBQ. Keep busy doing yard work and some gardening and admiring my handiwork by enjoying a nice meal or drink on my patio!
Have lived and worked in New York and London, but born and raised here in my Toronto. Love to travel for weekend getaways across North America or more exotic destinations. Really enjoy visiting Club Med resorts. Enjoy most everything Italian (except the politics).....can carry a conversation in Italian.
Like to ski, play tennis, cycle or run - have run a few races including a couple of 1/2 Marathons. Played some soccer - professionally and do love the spot. Enjoy swimming and also open to snorkelling or scuba diving. Do enjoy trying new wines and new types of food and cultures. Nice scotch or armagnac by the fire in wintertime is great way to cap off an evening.
Other thoughts are a long walk, or doing something together in the form of an activity. Maybe catching a flick to see a foreign film or visiting an art exhibit or just grabbing a drink at a jazz club......all depends on the city, time of year and what's going on.
Have been fortunate in past year to have visited many exotic locales such as Goa, Bangalore, and Dubai, walked and hiked parts of Hawaii, skied in Val D’Iseres, and to have spent this past New Years Eve celebrating in Times Square and Halloween in Turks. Exploring new experiences and cultures is enticing to me and am booked for Brazil & Peru next summer!
Am at a great point in my life and would welcome exploring more with willing partner.
Hmmmm.........a first date..........well can be as simple as meeting for a coffee and chat or possibly some sushi and sake and getting to know one another, to learn about the other person and to help determine if there is interest and potential for a 2nd date.
