I’m a California native, practicing Christian gentleman and by description I would consider myself very much as an impassioned person. Be it teaching, motivating others, personal development and even towards a more eclectic side for art, music and architecture. At the same (so I have been told), I’m pretty charismatic, comedic and spontaneous so there tends to be lots of laughter in my social circles. I also love running half marathons. It's a hobby of mine and there is nothing better than traveling state to state or out of the county to run a new 13 mile course.
As for qualities I am looking for in a woman, I would say that the most important is integrity. I truly desire a woman who is grounded with principles that she steadily lives by. She loves the Lord deeply; an excellent communicator; able to disagree/argue fairly, be transparent (verbally intimate), emotionally healthy; takes pride in her own health - physical fitness along with an ambition for achieving the goals that are important to her. Ideally, I am interested in a woman who is enthusiastic about partnering with a man of equal caliber, shared core values and aspirations as she. Ultimately, I'm looking for a lifelong partner who I can equally care for, love and create a legacy with. My parents have been married for 43 years and I would love to duplicate that and beyond.
