**I will be unavailable due to travel during the next five weeks**
Welcome to my page. Getting to know someone through an online service is awkward enough, so I'm going to do my best to be plain about what I hope to get out of being a part of this community. Some months back I got out of a long-term relationship that allowed me to learn a lot about myself and what I want in a partner. That being said, I'm here because I'd see it as a missed opportunity if I weren't. Please note, I'm in no way looking to settle down. There's still so much to do and see in the world before I devote myself to a family. When dating, I prefer to take things slow; call me old fashion if you like, but there's a lot less heartache that way. In the end, what is a solid relationship but friendship with chemistry. Integrity, respect, and authenticity are absolutely necessary to attain that. So, if you like what you see here, e-mail me. Let's get to know each other like we would if we met in person. If not, I wish you luck. I hope you find what you're looking for.
