The police, and your girlfriend" . ~
Kidding! Those are jack Nicholson's words...not mine. :)
YOU:Love life, love your family, and most of all...yourself. Just not TOO much. ;) Take good care of body and mind. Think of others before yourself. Light up the room with your smile and positive attitude. Be up for a road trip to wine country, an exotic vacation, a hike in the mountains, a night on the town, a couch cuddle, and a romantic evening at home with a bottle of wine ;-)
Be sexy, clever, classy, with a touch of goofy... and just be yourself. Laugh often, be cute, and be silly...but be a grown up. Baggage? I understand...we all have a little. Just please do your best to leave yours at the door.
I'm an old fashioned guy in a lot of ways. I think men should be men...and women should be women. I believe that a man should take care of his woman...and the woman of her man. I think GOOD relationships are awesome. But, people often get into relationships too quickly, and for the wrong reasons. MY relationship needs to have some key ingredients: PASSION, FUN, TRUST and some independence for each person.
I believe in integrity and doing the right thing. So should you. I believe life is about constantly improving yourself and helping others to do the same. I have a pretty sarcastic sense of humor and will often tell an inappropriate joke when you least expect it. Work? That's a boring question. But let's just say I'm great at what I do and do it with passion and excellence. Travel? My bags are packed. You coming?
Some other favs: BBQ's with friends/family, laughing with the people I love, a mountain bike or back packing adventure, my bed, a good book and some Jazz or Van Morrison, people watching- and making fun of those people, a craft beer or wine tasting session, lending a helping hand, home improvement, and pretty much anything outdoorsy.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Let's just call it a first "meeting", have a quick drink and a few laughs. No pressure. If we feel that...chemistry, then maybe a first "date" will follow and a good time will be had. ;-)
