I love to laugh and enjoy making others smile. There is nothing more wonderful to me than seeing a bright, shining smile on another's face. It is inviting and contagious! If you stop to think about it, life is short so why not smile while your at it?!
What I am looking for is someone emotionally and financially grounded, responsible, compassionate, caring, understanding and a woman who realizes that the seemingly long gone aspect of chivalry is NOT something you read in romance novels or part of fantasy in this world. The communication that a man and woman in a relationship is so very important, without it the relationship will die; its a proven fact. I believe in putting in my all into my relationships whether personal or professional, that's how it should be to earn respect among your peers, colleagues and even your special someone in life. My family is so very important to me in my life; they are number one and will always be there for me. I have learned in life to 'expect the unexpected'. I cherish every moment that I get to spend with each one, knowing it could be the very last.
I am searching for a woman who is independent, loves to laugh, ambitious & driven in her profession, passionate about her convictions, understanding, communicative, takes pride in her personal appearance, has the respect of her peers, loves the outdoors and one by spending as much time with her, she will make me the man that I want to be. A woman that I can confide anything and everything in and reciprocate that right back to her. I want someone that does not hold back and shares with me what is on her mind, no matter how small or big in her life, a woman that can challenge me to be better.She is compassionate about those are less fortunate in life with her loving heart and caring nature. A woman that versatile and adaptable in her fashion from either at laying in the couch watching television in a t-shirt and jeans to dressing elegantly for a formal event but be comfortable in her own skin at all times. I want a woman who compliments me in life. Quitessentially, I am looking for my best friend.
I enjoy doing many things when I am not working and the outdoors is one of my true passions in life when a needed solace of escape from the real world is needed. Fishing, camping, biking, horseback riding, working out, running/walking, sandvolleyball, boating, skiing, rollerblading and snow skiing. I will admit that one thing that I have NEVER done is snow boarding, it looks fun! I like watching live local bands and live music in general and concerts are always fun! I enjoy listening to an electic background of music artists and genres including; rock, alternative, soundtracks, country, blues, jazz, and R&B. I am not interested in rap or heavy metal.
I enjoy various ethnic foods including Italian, Mexican and Chinese. I would love to
diverisfy my tastes in sampling other cultural foods out there but I am wary of seafood for some odd reason that I just have never tried a good place for it.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I have always believed wholeheartedly that the PERSON you are with on a date and not the SCENERY around that is so very important.
