First and foremost, I am a gentleman (thanks to my father who is French) desiring to meet someone who has similar values and passions. I'm compassionate, affectionate, trustworthy, and definitely not a hopeless, but rather a hopeful romantic. I maintain balance, a level of respect, promote honesty and integrity in regards to the way I live my life, and it would be nice to meet someone who also possesses these qualities. I have been successfully self employed for the last 24 yrs. I consider myself to be relatively responsible, yet I do possess a goofy sense of humor...I have been known to generate a giggle or two in people. :)
In regards to activities, I enjoy boating, kayaking, walking, and cycling, (I road bike quite a bit...anyone interested going riding on Key Biscayne, AIA in Broward and Palm Beach Counties, participating in charity rides, or doing the MS 150 mile ride to Key Largo?) I have a tremendous passion for travel, (especially to the old continent) as well as weekend getaways, cultural events, gardening, cooking, and indulging in activities that evoke a feeling of serenity...such as viewing sunsets and admiring the infinite beauty of nature. I am open and willing to share in someone's passions and hopefully create and explore new ones. I am a good conversationalist as well as a keen listener, therefore, communication with me usually is not an issue. My personal belief for a relationship to be successful, there must be an affinity that move two people in unison, share similar values, and envision living in what I regard to be, "a shared peace".
I do not have a specific type that would be considered ideal, although, certain character traits are preferred. I am interested in meeting a sincere, confident, and passionate woman with a definite sense of humor who does not live a sedentary lifestyle. Affectionate, trusting, outgoing, kind, emotionally available, with a strong sense of family values are all qualities which are very much welcomed. In addition to this, optimism, balance in one's everyday life, genuinely loves to travel, and fluency in the English language are very important to me. Simply said, I am looking for someone who strives for true happiness in a relationship and is aware of what it entails. If you have read my profile and you find it to be of interest, feel free to e-mail me.
