About me - I'm told I look young for my age and unless necessary (I do take my responsibilities seriously), rarely act it. I keep in pretty good shape, but would love to be in better shape (maybe not the same shape I was when I was in the Marine Corps lol). Most importantly, I am an honest one-woman man who has been faithful in every relationship I've been in, I strive for stability, fun, and adventure. I'm very positive and optimistic and believe there is always a solution to any problem. I'm not sure you'll find a more kind or level-headed person than me. As a self-taught engineer (robotics and automation), I consider myself to be reasonably intelligent with a "whatever it takes" attitude". I work hard, but I keep it balanced - nothing is more important than family. As I seem to always say, it's not all about me - I love to take care of that special person in my life and realize every relationship requires compromise. As far as my other attributes, I think I'm quick-witted, articulate, a critical thinker, caring, and non-judgmental. I do consider myself a moral person and live my life by the golden rule. I have no interest in drama, games, or being around liars or hypocrites. I try to surround myself with people who add value to my life.
I don't like to spend much time in bars anymore and am not much of a drinker. So if this is your thing, God bless you - but we would not be a good match. Although I enjoy going out to dinners, movies, maybe catching some live music, and maybe some dancing (spoiler alert - I'd love to be able to dance well, but like most middle aged white guys, I suck), I'm just as happy to sit home with a special person cuddling up on the couch and watching a movie (yes, I am totally cuddlerific!).
As far as what I am looking for, I think it's pretty simple - a woman who can make me laugh, is intelligent, faithful, and has a caring heart. All of us have some baggage and I'm completely cool with that. Everyday can't be unicorns and rainbows, but I don't feel like that should control our lives. I hope to meet someone I can stand beside and be my best friend. I probably want the same thing you - stability, fun, adventure, and a continually growing relationship.
Just a note (in case you made it this far) - I never have and never will mix my romantic life with my music life. I play music to escape day to day responsibilities and worries. I do not add drama to that by meeting women at shows. Local bar bands do not have "groupies". In fact, much of what you may think you know about musicians is generally not true. Most of us play for the love of music - not chase women. If I were looking for one night stands or booty calls, I wouldn't need to be here. I am very serious about meeting someone who will become my best friend and lover for life. Sorry to get a little serious here, but I can't hide the fact that music is a large part of who I am. However, as far as priorities go, music is pretty far down the list of things that are most important to me. Family, my life partner, and close friends are far more important.
It's kind of cool knowing our lives may change with the next mouse click. If I am not what you are looking for, thanks for taking the time to read my profile. If I sound like someone who might interest you, send me a message and ask anything you would like - I'm an open book with nothing to hide.
Thanks again for reading and good luck in your search - we're all in this together people! :)
