The one thing I am most passionate about: taking care of others, I'm a full time dad to a wonderful 13 yr old daughter, and I also have a foster daughter, helping people, and making people smile, that's how I chose my profile name. Yes – I know that sounds cheesy – but I try really hard to brighten the day of everyone I meet, even if that’s just by asking a cashier how they are, commenting on her hair or holding the door open for someone. I try to always think of that quote by the Dalai Lama: “Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.”
The most influential person in my life has been: My grandfather. He lived until his 90s and was beloved by everyone he met. He gave me my curious nature and taught me to always think of others first. He and my grandmother were married for over 60 years until he died, and he always said she was the most precious and important part of his life. The way he treated her – with respect, kindness and gratitude – has really shaped the way I conduct myself in all my relationships – particularly with women.
My friends describe me as: warm, generous, thoughtful and caring.
The one thing I wish people would notice more about me: I can be forthright and direct when I need to be. Not in a bar-fight kind of way… but I do know how to get what I want.
I am looking for: I love intimacy and getting swept up in a new relationship – that whirlwind when you meet someone and fall for them instantly. I think true romance is about getting to know someone and connecting on a deep level – it’s more than just chemistry and attraction.

Something easy, maybe go hiking at furnwood botanical gardens, it's a public place and great place to chat.
