I'm a man of substance, faith and character with safe imperfections. I'm a people person and place a high value on friends and family. I'm kind and gentle yet strong, decisive and masculine. I enjoy the mushy aspects of a relationship, yet manly enough to fix things, protect a woman from bugs and rescue her from immediate peril. I treat women well. I'm both deep and playful. I must admit I'm a bit of a ham and enjoy the spotlight. Professionally motivated, yet live a balanced life. Physically I take great care of myself, eat right, exercise regularly and am in excellent shape. Not into ball sports, please don't ask me to throw or catch anything breakable, but a great dancer. I'm quite intelligent, a Mensa member, and at times enjoy academic things and the chance to let loose my suppressed inner nerd. Culturally I'm sophisticated, yet down to earth. I prefer wine, theatre, and the Hollywood Bowl to beer, TV and rock concerts. I love the arts, cooking, architecture and interior design – I'm a straight guy with a good eye, very straight. I'm passionate, romantic, a great kisser, communicate well with touch but I respect boundaries – a wild gentleman.
Ideally, I’m looking for someone long-term with marriage potential. I’m also open to meeting someone where we mutually don’t see it as a long-term fit, but for a significant season or role in each other’s lives. What I want to avoid is mismatched interests or expectations. There is a lot of life to live and I want something real, whether for a season or the long haul. Either way you will be treated well in the ways that really matter.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
First date is coffee. Second date (the real first date) is dinner at someplace interesting and creative with a walk afterwards. It’s time for relaxed conversation and exploring the city.
