I'm just a really nice, relationship oriented guy who is finding myself single again after a 20-year, monogamous relationship. I'm looking to date other relationship-oriented guys, with the ultimate goal of finding someone that I fall madly in love with, and he with me. I am not looking for hookups or quick sex.
My photos are current, and my ABSOLUTELY CORRECT stats are: 44 years old, 5'7, 138 pounds. (Little guy.) I have brown hair that is slightly graying, and hazel eyes. I am a nonsmoker, social drinker and don't use any illegal drugs.
Style wise, I fluctuate between jeans and sweatshirts when working around my property, to bow ties and argyle socks when I am heading into the office. I probably lean more towards "preppy" in style.
I don't consider myself "butch" or "fem", as I don't like labels. I am very comfortable being "me", whether I am wearing jeans and an old t-shirt while drinking a bottle of beer at a backyard barbecue, or wearing a tuxedo at a local charity event. I am totally out of the closet, and have been since I was 19, and prefer men who are out of the closet as well. Some words my friends have used to describe me are: caring, charming, honest to a fault, a big flirt, a sharp dresser, dependable, loyal, and a hopeless romantic. However, on the flip side of the coin, I do have a tendency to sometimes be moody, to wear my heart on my sleeve, and I usually "tell it like it is".
Some of my hobbies and interests consist of architecture and old homes, historic restoration and preservation, downtown revitalization and antiques. (I have a passion for Victorian and Edwardian antiques, but can also appreciate the stylings of Art Deco as well.) I love gardening, working around my property, renovating my home, and entertaining both intimately and on a large scale. Heading into NYC for dinner and a show, museums, nightlife or shopping is always fun. I enjoy all things relating to the outdoors. (Hiking, etc.) I am an animal person, and I have 4 dogs, (all Pekingese,) whom I spoil and treat like children. I have a fabulous group of friends whom I love dearly and am very devoted to.
I usually prefer guys in the age range of 40 to 60, and tend to gravitate more towards white collar, professional men. It just seems that I have more common interests with men in this age range than I do with the younger guys. That being said, age is just a number and I wouldn't automatically eliminate someone just based on their age. (Or even their occupation.) Truth be told, I don't really care if you are a CEO of a company or a garage mechanic. Just be passionate about something in your life, (anything,) have a positive outlook, be responsible, and just be a "nice guy." A nice, sweet guy will win me over every time!... Just please be emotionally and physically available, as I myself am.
