I'm very outgoing and really enjoy the company people and great conversation. I have a wide variety of interests and love to learn. I have a good sense of humor and like the same in a partner. I like to laugh, have fun and make others laugh too. I think I'm intelligent but don't take myself too seriously that way. I like meaningful, two way conversation and think I am a good listner. I'm pretty affectionate with the right person and not afraid to reveal my feelings both positive and negative in an appropriate manner.
My perfect match would have some of the same qualities I have. I think similar interests are very important in a relationship. Not exactly the same but some shared passion. I am a "One girl at a time" type guy and would want the same in anyone I am dating on a regular basis. I can't deal with the "Moody" type where emotions change constantly. Needy women are out of the question. Been there and done that.
I think mature love grows over time but I do like the excitment of a new romance. I am looking for long term relationship, but I know that takes time and some effort. I like spending a lot of quality time with a special female, but I think it is a mistake to expect another person to be your entire life. I think most healthy people need their space and time to enjoy activities with friends and family outside the relationship.
I realize that family and old friends are important to all of us and I would never stand in the way of or try to inhibit those relationships. I would want the same from my partner. Friends, children and grandchildren are extremely important. I would be more than willing to participate in those relationships if desired.
I'm not looking for "Ms. Perfect" because I think that is an unrealistic expectation. Nice if it happens, but if I held that standard I might very well be alone the rest of my life.
