First, know that I travel several times a year (see my private photos). I'm not going to tell you how handsome I am, or wonderful, or that I'm a genius - that is for you to decide, not me. But what I will tell you is that I'm a happy, easy-going person with a good sense of humor. I enjoy life, especially with someone special. I am a physical person - I like to hold hands when I walk with you and kiss you no matter where we are. I tend to be spontaneous - if you dislike public displays of affection, I'm probably not the guy you are looking for. Family is a priority with me. I know how to treat and take care of a woman and a family. I have a modest house with a large yard. As far as my career - I've been moving upwards in it for years. Let me tell you about a dream I have. In it, I with the woman I love in front of a fireplace on a cold night. I keep her warm and to let her know that that she is the center of my universe. Maybe someday....
I can stand to lose a few pounds, but I'm in excellent health. For hobbies, I like photography, fly-fishing, canoeing, camping, backpacking, SCUBA diving - almost anything outdoors. I can hunt if I need to, but I don't enjoy it. I enjoy backpacking to a remote area and camping for a few days. In other words I like adventure and exploring new places. I like pets and have had dogs, cats, fish and other pets around me for most of my life.
Part of my job entails photography - I've had work-related photos published internationally and in several publications here in the US. I'm university educated. I like to read and as for music, I like to listen to many different types, except rap (I detest rap). I have traveled quite a bit. I have a 30 year old son. My 25 year old daughter is still at home. I have brown hair (with a lot of gray), green eyes, I'm just over 5' 11" tall, have a moustache and a goatee that I keep trimmed and short - I'll shave it off every once in a while when I get tired of it. I have a deep voice, but I'm not a very good singer. I'm even tempered, very romantic and passionate.
Most importantly - I'm looking for an equal, a friend, a partner and a lover. I will value your thoughts and opinions. Please be at least 30 years old. If you are a smoker or have large or lots of tattoos, good luck with your search elsewhere.
Ideal match description:
First off, you're over 30 years old. I've been looking for you all my life - I know you are out there somewhere, I just have to find you. Also, I have children - it is fine with me if you have children.
You have a sense of adventure. You have an intense curiousity and would like to see more of the world and it's wonders. You like the outdoors - you like to hike, camp, backpack, kayak or/and canoe, and are not afraid to try something new. You are smart, but not arrogant or vain.
I am not looking for a servant or a housekeeper, but a partner, someone who has dreams they would like to try to achieve.
I see on this site that there are many beautiful women - but there are beautiful women in my country. What interests me is what is in your heart and what you think and feel. Not to say that I do not enjoy the touch of a woman, but to me, a relationship based purely on physical attraction, while enjoyable, will not last. I want something more. I want something permanent - a family. I want you - no I need you to be the first thing I think of when I wake in the morning, the last thing thought in my mind when I fall asleep at night. And I want you to be in my dreams...
