I'm looking for an open hearted and down-to-earth person that wants to be partners in life. I'm quite upbeat naturally and like to live life to the fullest. I believe in living healthy and making good choices. Love going out and being social.. Seeing the person I'm with light up because of something I did to make her happy, really makes me feel good. I believe in a really good connection with the person you're passionate about. A connection that makes you think, allows you to be creative and is uplifting. Things don't have to be perfect, but a relationship that you know is working and that we're building together. I'm not the arguing type but rather like to talk through things in a positive way. Family means a lot to me and I come from a larger family, on both my mom and dad's side. If we meet, remind me to tell you a story about a trip to Italy.. Lots of cousins and kids! My daughters are incredible and we have a blast together. I'm good with kids, which likely comes from my folks who are still married and very happy together. Parties are usually filled with music, lots of food, magic tricks for the kids and big hugs. I don't have to be going nonstop all the time by any means, but you don't have to convince me to try something. Cooking at home or barbecuing with friends is perfect also. I like to work out, hike and bike; and play some sports like golf and tennis. I'm pretty easy going and personable and find some fun in even the simplest of things. Getting outside to go for walks, keeping up with my house, landscaping or even just simple parties with friends is relaxing. Traveling is a good thing. I like getting away for long weekends or quick trips; love to unwind at our house in St. Joseph MI.
