I was a world class chef for a good portion of my life, and although not cooking professionally anymore, I do still love to cook for friends and family. Friends are very important to me and I do like to spend time with them, but my preference is to spend most of the time with you, my new best friend. I have an easy smile and have been told that I am very cute to handsome. If you are or at least know what a Golden Unicorn is, you get tons of bonus points, but if not, no big deal. I just want someone who is comfortable being them self. Intelligence is something that I tend to find attractive. You do not need to be Mensa smart (I have an IQ of 136) but please have some smarts, not necessarily a college degree, just smarts... I am not arrogant about intelligence or really anything. I am a gentleman through and through, my momma brought me up right.
I love to take walks and ride bikes as well as skateboarding at skateparks wherever my travels might take me. And traveling I have done. From school in Austria, cruises in Greece to a month in New Zealand, I love to travel. Snowboarding all over the west coast is also something that I look forward to every winter as well.
My wild and crazy days are far behind, although I am always up for a good time. I do have fairly high morals and do not cheat, lie or steal. These are traits that I can not stand. I have also come to the conclusion that these lipsticks that claim they will last all day are phooey. They will not last five minutes with me kissing you, there will not be a remnant left. And I can kiss all day long.

Hmmm, really depends on the person and the situation. I assume by the time we meet, we would already know a bit about each other. I would have to say coffee, sushi, or something else to eat, and get to know each other face to face. Followed by either a movie or dancing. We could also go to a sporting event, or listen to some music, a picnic maybe. Museums are nice, as well as an afternoon lunch people watching. It really depends on the person. I have many interests and love to learn about new things all of the time.
