I am a professional man that thrives on adventure and passion. I consider myself down-to-earth and normal. I'm into music, photography, reading, writing, walks, conversation and sometimes more social pursuits. I'm shy at first, but that doesn't stop me from being opinionated and sure of who I am. I'm confident and happy with my life. I'd like to find a long-term relationship with someone a bit older, but I prefer to start out as friends. Older men that are confident and intelligent make me excited. So, if you like your man equally intelligent and a little on the witty side, then we might be a good match. Friends tell me I'm thoughtful, affectionate, intelligent and a little crazy. I fully understand that any person of value will have past baggage that he brings to a new relationship. Carry-ons are acceptable...steamer trunks are not. I want to meet someone who is worth the effort--where ever he may live. I may or may not be the man of your dreams. If you are serious in sharing a good life, then why not meet me and judge for yourself.
