Because, when it comes down to it, NOTHING trumps confidence...everything that we want to do, and everything that we want to be, is possible, if we believe in ourselves...and no one...I mean NO ONE, can ever take self-confidence away from you, unless you let them. Intelligence, integrity, and open-mindedness are VERY IMPORTANT to me. I enjoy spending time with people who are up for trying just about anything. My children will always come first. My closest friends are equally comfortable in business attire or shorts w/ flip-flops. My ideal woman is successful, optimistic, spontaneous, adventurous, loving, and she is someone who potentially could end up being my best friend.
I love to spoil someone that I care about, and I also want/need to be treated very well by my partner. I value my "alone time" and "guy time", and partner should be comfortable having time to herself and time with her girlfriends as well. Beautiful women are pretty easy to find in southern California, but smart and giving and open/adventurous girls are RARE. I want RARE and UNIQUE. I love my job...it is very demanding at times, but it also allows me the freedom to travel anywhere in the world (or to some dive bar at the beach on a Tuesday morning...LOL). Do I have a bit of an ego? Sure. But, if you get me to fall in love with you, you will have the sweetest guy in the world...a guy who expects a lot from you, but will make you feel like the woman the Taj Mahal was built for (LOL...wait a minute...I think he built that for her posthumously...that came out wrong...ha ha).
Oh, and I can do the moonlit walk on the beach with the fire pit and the glass of wine as we gaze longingly into each other's eyes as we read each other's thoughts because we are soulmates who were meant for each other as we embrace and kiss tenderly...but, can we do it in Brazil or Mauritius or Sri Lanka or somewhere really really cool? Maybe after skydiving? Thanks. =)
