Hello out there ...What do I write here? Who am I and what words describe me best. That's hard to do...I am a chef, a baseball player, good with numbers, a huge Chicago Bears fan. I am loyal and honest to the end. I am spontaneous and impulsive, I wear my heart on my sleeve. I was raised with traditional values, my parents are still together and my Dad is my idol. I think you must earn respect every day, i believe that you must pay your dues and start at the bottom. I love Chicago, its sports, geography, people and food. I believe a true friend is someone who when you talk to them it seems you pick up just where you left off, like no time has passed. I believe in showing affection, its like water, a person needs it to survive. I am romantic....gestures feel good to both parties. I believe in myself first, I have faith I will rise to any challenge. I regret nothing....I am happy the with the man in the mirror each morning and all my mistakes and failures played a part, why take them back. I believe passion comes from the soul and there is no way to fake it.
I want from this site a way to meet someone I can marry someday....my free time was chafed by my career and exhaustion usually made the "get up and go meet someone" mindset seem miles away and impossible. Finally I am in a place where I have the time to be selfish. I am a good provider, selfless and generous. I want someone who wants to BE loved, it seems many don't care or have forgotten the importance of having that one person who is always on your team, by your side, who'll fight for you as I would for her. True companionship seems lost in text messenging, iphones, tweeting and so forth. I want someone who wants to put the work INTO a relationship as well, they are never easy. I want someone I can trust, who is honest with me and themselves, openminded to new things and not chained to past routines or notions.
I am a chef, I am italian, I have a huge heart and a dry sense of humor. Friends always called me the witty one. I don't look for salaries, savings, possessions or stature. I need someone who is real and comfortable in their own skin.
Skeptic as I am about this site but I haven't found any other options at this point. I am a keeper, so judge if you like from the few pictures I posted....I would expect nothing less. But if there is even an inkling of a connection then lets meet for coffee, what can that hurt. Meeting new people is fun and if it leads no where but a new acquaintance then that's still a win. D-
