I'm on here to meet someone I can have a connection with and actually focus on getting to know more. If the right person comes along, over time, I may be even persuaded to move. Growing up, I was surrounded by different cultures, languages, and ethnic foods. That has helped me to be more open-minded about life and the way people do things. I have a passion in learning different languages, trying different foods, and learning how to cook them. My family and close friends are very important to me.
I stay pretty active and enjoy working out. I love to shoot pool and play ping-pong. I like being out on the water and like fishing (inshore/offshore), boating, shrimping, flounder gigging, scuba diving, etc. I’m looking for someone who enjoys staying in shape and being healthy. After all, that helps me stay in shape and be healthy. Hygiene is very important to me, so I expect that of the person I’m looking for.
I have a lot of hobbies I enjoy, but I’m always open to new ones. I love drawing, jigsaw puzzles, cooking, eating (my favorite hobby), fine dining, trying new restaurants, traveling, taking dancing lessons, wine tasting, cooking classes, going to games (basketball, baseball, football, ice hockey), cornhole, live bands, etc. I like to plan, but I can be spontaneous at times. I love to travel, so I’m looking for a travel partner. I don’t ever want to hold someone back from his dreams or what he wants to do, so I want the same, for someone to be supportive or want to do things with me. I've worked hard to get to where I am and am financially stable and responsible. I'm not looking for someone who barely makes ends meet or doesn't have a direction in life.

If I’m not interested, please don't get offended. Attraction or interest is the result of different factors. Everyone has his/her own preferences, and as open-minded as I try to be, I don’t want to waste your time or mine if I don’t think we’re a good fit. By the way, if you smoke, do drugs, and/or drink excessively, or lack communication skills, please don't waste your time or mine.
If you’re interested, don't wink. Just send me an e-mail and see what happens.
