I'm a friendly Texan from Austin who enjoys meeting friendly and sincere people. I've a deep Southern voice and have been told many times I should have been a radio DJ. I'm very straight-forward, mean what I say and back it up. And prefer the same in others..
I enjoy the company of others who aren't always so serious or focused "all" the time that they can't see the humor in almost everything around them. I enjoy a woman who's playful, light hearted and who is real.
I like to hike (a passion), snow ski, kayak, lift weights, etc. to stay active.
Adventurous (sky dived twice and took a flying lesson recently just for the fun of it), outgoing, not afraid to try new things and I have a little bit of a wild side in me. I don't cook but would enjoy learning how with a fun and interesting woman who does.
I do occasional volunteer work (Habitat For Humanity, etc.) and it would be great if you did as well but it's not absolute. To me, a woman who does is very attractive and sensual. It's a reflection of her soul and spirit.
Arts lover in general. I enjoy most types of live music and the Greek Theater is a favorite place. "Les Miserables" is a favorite musical (very inspiring), like movies, comedy clubs, dramatic plays, etc.
You must enjoy nature, hiking and live music at the very least. Your other likes don't have to be exactly what I like but common goals, activities, etc. should be similar. Just common sense isn't it?
I prefer a woman who's very feminine yet likes some sports, isn't afraid to try new things, is down-to-earth and friendly. You've got to generally be a passionate person. About life and love. I am looking for a serious relationship.
If you're from the South then all the better! I enjoy Southern charm (have it myself I'm told) in a woman.
And above all else, we have fun just hanging out with each other. No matter what we do.
I'm fine with someone who's kids are older or grown as are mine. My diaper days are over. But I am very family oriented and kids like me.
My hair is as thick and dark as it is in my photo (never dyed - I've actually been asked). I enjoy a woman running her fingers through it.
So that's part of what I'm about.
Just have fun and let's enjoy the journey.
