March 2013 Update - I just moved into downtown Miami...across from Bayfront Park. I would really enjoy meeting friends in this area.
People would generally describe me as a genuine, down to earth, romantic, giving, passionate, funny, masculine, guy. I was in a long term relationship for 8 years, but that was 15 years ago. I've been single for a while, and having experienced both, would prefer a loving/caring relationship.
There is very little stress in my life..no drama, no baggage...just good times. I'm pretty mellow - not a lot upsets me. I've been lucky my entire life, experiencing things that many never get to experience, and somehow, I feel like my life is just beginning..and I can't wait for tomorrow...
I'm pretty social..I enjoy having friends over for dinner, playing board games, doing bar b ques, day trips etc... I'm an optimist, and enjoy being around other like minded people. I've moved up in corporations, I've owned my own businesses, and now..I'm quite content to slow down a bit and travel and enjoy the world. I'm not so much into the bar scene. I don't mind the occasional night out clubbing, but would rather spend evenings with friends, dinners, curling up watching a good movie... I generally spend weekends outdoors - snorkeling, kayaking, going to the Everglades, enjoying the beach...
I would describe myself as spiritual, but I'm not religious at all. I believe in treating others with dignity and respect...always. I am optimistic, open minded, and always willing to listen to others opinions and perspectives. Often, random conversations have changed my paradigms as I continuously assimilate new information..that's one of the great things I love about life - being flexible and open minded...not set in my ways. Just when I think I've got life figured out - things change - and I find myself back at square one...and I like that!
I'm attracted to guys that are funny, smart, masculine, who have integrity, who love to laugh, love to travel, respectful, realistic, romantic, passionate. Guys from other countries seem to easily catch my attention, guys with hairy legs excite me, and I'm definitely attracted to men with facial hair.
I'm not interested in chatting for weeks on end without meeting - if our profiles indicate that we have common interests and we're both attracted physically based on the pictures we've posted - my preference is to meet for a beer/coffee...as we can both generally tell after a good conversation if we're there's a mutual attraction or not.
I'm not looking for perfection - I'm looking for real. It's been a while since I've been in love with someone...it's been a while since someone has been in love with me. I miss that..and my goal is to find the relationship that is mentally, physically, sexually, emotionally, and spiritually satisfying to both of us on all levels. I sometimes think that romance is a lost art...and would love to be proven wrong. Remember being so madly in love that you couldn't stop thinking about your mate? How you couldn't wait to get home and hang out with him? Remember how awesome it feels knowing that someone loves you unreservedly?
Could I be the guy you've been holding out for? Are you tired of working a long day, coming home to no one? Are you ready to start the next chapter in your life? Do you want to meet someone that is not afraid to take the next step? Imagine having someone who's excited to see you every day, who enjoys every moment that you share with them...being together...making exotic travel plans together...fixing a leaking faucet...an impromptu day trip to St. Augustine...kayaking in the Everglades...If this is the life that you want to lead...I certainly hope to hear from you....and thank you for reading this entire profile...that tells me a lot about your character...and your endurance. ;-P
