I treat women with absolute respect, and if they deserve to be treated like a princess, then I am the man to do it. I am successful in my profession and have many friends and family. I have two dogs and my own house, but it still feels a bit empty. I enjoy sports and getting out in nature, traveling, being with friends and family and just curling up on the couch for a good movie. I write poetry, create music, cook (my father worked in restaurants) and love being creative. I am extraordinarily tender and sensual, yet there is no doubt that I am a man. I am looking for someone who understands a marriage is give-and-take, and that life is not always a fairy-tale (although I try to make it one as much as possible). Someone who stands up for herself and her ideas, yet is delicate enough to need a man's reassurance. Someone who can listen to others' ideas and compromise when necessary. Someone who loves animals and nature - who loves to travel by plane, train, car or boat, but also someone who can simply relax in the house for a private weekend. Someone who can be spontaneous and loves being surprised with gifts, tokens or simply a dinner out of the house every now and then. Someone who is naturally sensual and ready to indulge in life's pleasures.
