First and foremost, I am a gentleman who is independent, strong in character with a deep sense of loyalty, integrity and confidence and secure with who I , I am a great listener, problem solver and have a sensitive soul; one who cries at movies and whose heart is being impacted daily by people and issues. Other words that would describe me would be: passionate, caring, empathetic, trustworthy, curious, honest, funny, adventurous, a teacher, mentor, romantic and open-minded with a bit of an edge. Fitness is important to me and I work out five or six times a week; weight training and cardio make up my routine. I take great care of myself and enjoy biking, power walking, rollerblading, golf, weekend getaways, travel abroad, bookstores, boating in the intracoastal and ocean, Scrabble, eclectic restaurants, sidewalk cafes, fine wines, the Arts, classical and jazz music, dancing, shopping, stimulating conversation and anything romantic! I also have a more spontaneous side that is shared intimately with the special woman in my life. I hope you consider this a plus!
