I have come to Match.com hoping to find a man who is funny, self sufficient, intelligent and can handle the ups and downs that come along at this stage in life. A man that can ask for what he wants in a relationship and actually listens when a woman speaks. I love conversation and think being able to talk about anything and everything is important. I have a sharp wit and wicked sense of humor and making people laugh makes me happy. I am an avid nature photographer and can be just as satisfied watching a moose and baby in Yellowstone as I am curled up with someone watching tv. I prefer cold weather, unless I have an opportunity to snorkel or work with stranded pilot whales in the Keys. I would enjoy the time with my partner, but also appreciate the value of time apart. Keeping and maintaining individual interests are as important as building on common interests I'm very affectionate and like when my partner holds my hand and isn't embarrassed by touching in public.
I hate prejudice, mean people, apathy, poor hygiene and palmetto bugs (not necessarily in that order). Ideally, I am looking for the same, except for the bug part (someone has to get rid of it!). I'm a sucker for 80's music, having grown up in that era and if you went to any of the Fort Lauderdale hotspots, we may have bumped into each other.
Are you just a guy looking for an independent woman that still wants you to hold the door for her? Life is too short to play games and I am looking for a true partner, a man that loves himself enough that he can truly love a woman.
