Just a single middle-aged guy who enjoys the outdoors, road-trips, music and fine wine. I am financially-stable, and I have my act together.
They say that dating becomes more difficult the older you get. Nothing could be further from the truth for me. At 41 I have more confidence, more knowledge about what I want in a partner, and I’m in better shape than I was at 20. I am just enjoying life right now. I love all the romance I am able to explore.
I disagree with traditional dating values that insist that it’s wrong for a woman to ask a man out first, and that the man should pay for dates the majority of the time. I think that we’ve moved beyond the 1950’s and women are just as capable as men of showing chivalry. It’s common sense to hold the door open for somebody behind you; it doesn’t matter if your a woman or a man.
In addition, I’m not interested in dating a woman who wants me just because I have a job, a car, and a place of my own. I’m looking for a woman who is attracted to my personality and looks, not what I have or can give her materialisticly. Some people may face more barriers than other people in achieving financial stability, and I think it’s unfair to describe all those who haven’t as “lazy.” We cannot judge without knowing everybody’s situation.
I am aspiring to continue to keep up my fitness regime and healthy lifestyle. I love to laugh and have a good time when I get together with my friends. I appreciate most types of music, and I especially enjoy the sound of an acoustic guitar.
If you’re going to contact me first please write something more than “hey there;.” Women are always demanding that men be original in first messages, so please don’t be hypocritical.
