I am 48, divorced, and live on Lake Norman in a condo overlooking the lake. My boat, the lake, my job and my lab are my life. Moved to Charlotte fourteen years ago after ending my marriage of fifteen years. I have no children from the marriage, but I do love kids. Not looking to fall in love, but if it happens I am more than ready for it. Looking to get out and meet some people for friendship or maybe more. My buddies are fun, but it is nice to have a friend with "perks." Love good wine, good food, cooking, and dining out. Cooking is one of my passions (worked my way through school by cooking). Nothing better than a great meal. Looking to meet some women and take it as it goes. Love to be on the lake skiing, tubing, and just being with friends enjoying the weather. I am an average guy who likes to do guy things. Live a rather low key lifestyle and prefer it that way. Looking for a woman who has her own life going on yet can find time for me and us. I do not want to be the 8 hours in your day between work and sleep. I like my private time, but I do get lonely sometimes. I have a lot to offer the right lady if she is out there. Once I cook for you, you're mine! I am easy going, enjoy a variety of activities, and am adaptable. A woman who loves water skiing, dogs, the lake, a weekend getaway, or a fun day in bed :) is a good candidate. She should know how to have fun, is outspoken, has a sense of humor, and knows how to smile. She should be responsible, loving, not into drama, stress, or games. I have met MANY women but still have not found THE one. I am happy person who loves a good joke, and she should be the same.
