My name is Matt McDermott. I’m 5’11” and I weigh about 212 pounds. I have brown hair and eyes. I live in Canton, a small city near Detroit Michigan, USA (but I have also lived in St. Louis Missouri and in Washington, D.C.). I have two boys (Andrew who is 18 1/2 and Ian who is 16) from a previous marriage (I was divorced in the Fall of 1999). The boys live with their mother in Washington, DC (about 550 miles from me) so I'm only able to see them over Christmas holiday, and for a few weeks in the summer. They are my best friends
I have a brother and a sister. I am in the middle My brother lives just a few miles from me. My sister, however, lives in New York City. I lost my mother about 14 years ago in an automobile accident. I lost my father in mid-January of 2008.
Michigan is a very special place. It is surrounded by the Great Lakes and within its borders are thousands of smaller yet beautiful lakes. Lakes that can be used for swimming, boating, or fishing. The family has a cabin about 300 miles North of Detroit on a small lake. It is a beautiful spot and there is so much to do within the immediate area. The little lake there is great for skinny dipping . Lake Michigan has, maybe, the best beach in the world. The beach is very sandy and is hundreds of miles long. Often times it is possible to have miles of sandy beach all to yourself.
I work as a computer scientist. I am open minded and consider myself to be a free spirit. I am an outgoing person who likes to try new things as often as possible. I am reliable and trustworthy and a tender soul. I am in good health. When I have the time I will go to the gym to work out (but mostly I like riding my bike). My friends say that I am respectful and understanding of others feelings and that I have a good since of humor. I enjoy the out-of-doors very much. On my vacations I like to take long bicycle rides, go camping or backpacking. Weekends are a little different. On weekends I enjoy watching TV, reading a book, or simply cuddling with my "Love."
In the fall, the leaves turn brilliant reds and yellows and walking in the many state parks is a special treat. Winter time is also special. Having a fire in the fireplace, listening to music, and drinking a little sweet wine can be like a dream.
I'm very romantic. I like leaving roses on my lover's pillow before bedtime, giving bubble baths, and every so often serving coffee or breakfast in bed.
I also like amusement parks. Especially roller coasters. Every year the boys and I go to Cedar Point amusement park which is in Ohio (about 2 1/2 hours from Detroit). It has 17 roller coasters! In the summer, walking to the ice cream store is always a treat. I like quiet mornings and an early cup of coffee Starbucks, a chain of coffee shops here in the US, makes delicious flavored coffees with whipped cream !
Ideal match description:
What merits do I appreciate most in the woman of my dreams? They are actually quite simple: First, she is my friend. She should have a good since of humor and be outgoing...willing to try new things. She must be adventuresome. She must be a communicator (I believe that the root of a successful relationship is communication). She will be my partner in life. Together we do the finances and take care of the home chores together . She supports me in good times and in bad - JUST AS I SUPPORT HER! She is the "rock" that I can lean against. She should have a very good sense of humor (even a good sexual sense of humor). Again, I support her in the exact same way. The two of us make 3 (the sum of us together is greater than they are apart). I take the time to listen to her thoughts and ideas. Her age is not important to me. MY ONLY REQUEST IS THAT SHE BE FULL OF LIFE!!! I will also add that she should be trustworthy and not a liar. Relationships are built upon trust. She should enjoy romance and intimacy and be as passionate as I am in bed. I seek a partner in marriage, an equal, a lover, someone that I can trust, and someone that needs me as much as I need her. All I want in life is to love and, in return, be loved...please write to me ))
