Come away with me. Mmmmmm, don't you just love that song by Nora Jones? I am loving life and would like to meet a woman that will come away with me someone to explore and enjoy life's adventures with; someone who has that "special ingredients" where the conversation flows and the chemistry makes for a lasting friendship. If you are looking for quality, class and oh, don't forget affection, look no further! For fun I love to travel and outdoor activities such as gardening, walking, hiking and anything near or on water. Ive also snow skied, kayaked, river rafted, golfed (very badly)and always have a camera with me to capture those special moments. I'm a pretty good cook; enjoy gatherings with family and friends, going to the movies and home improvement projects.
I value my family and friendships and have maintained some for over 40years. I also value honesty, respect, and the ability to laugh at myself. I have two wonderful kids, They live with me. No grand kids yet, just "grand-dog". I'm a big dog lover and have found great companionship and unconditional love with them
"In a nutshell", leaving modesty off to a side... I'm active, body, mind and soul. Intelligent , worldly, entrepreneurial, independent, and don't like to draw attention. I love my liberty (of expression, to choose, ...). I don't make a fuss over small issues. I just look for the solution and evaluate if it's really that important ;) Life isn't as complicated as some people make it. I don't like to dramatize situations.I'm a bit of a clown, and playful. I love to laugh. Even at myself. :) I'm also a bit of a sportsman: swim, Deep down I'm a bit shy but I cover that up fairly well. I'm secure about myself. Sincere and direct. Sometimes a bit too much. I don't like games nor lies.
Now for you. Are you the real deal - a person of integrity? Great! Are you generally a happy person and fun to be around, comfortable in your own skin, have hobbies and friends, can laugh at yourself, enjoy and feel comfortable initiating conversation? Well, that's what I'm looking for, someone who is not a party animal, but does like outdoor activities and doesn't mind initiating plans to do something every once and awhile. You also don't mind staying home sometimes, enjoying the quiet life a good movie, quiet conversation, a little romance (or maybe a lot if we really connect).
My ideal match would, respect, trust and enjoy who I am and once she really gets to know me, still accepts who I am and enjoys my company . She is financially stable (as am I), is happy and has a full life. She's not looking for someone to make her happy, but rather someone to share happiness and experience life's adventures and sometimes tribulations. Life isn't always a bowl of cherries. There is comfort in knowing you have a friend you can count on to be there for you for the long haul.
