I'm a down to earth, educated gentleman giving the online dating thing a try. I'm extremely outgoing and enjoy life by the minute. I tend to hold the simple things in life near and dear to my heart. Despite being a traditionalist at heart, I really enjoy living life outside the box. I am always up for being spontaneous, seeking new adventures and pretty much anything that fuels adrenaline. I really enjoy traveling and need to do more of it. Europe and the far east are definitely next on my hit list. I enjoy staying home and cooking (and have gotten quite good) just as much as enjoying a 7 course meal at the trendy Restaurant in town. Overall I live a pretty healthy lifestyle and really enjoy fitness activities. I come from a large loving family on my mothers side which always makes for great holiday parties and dinners. I'm into music of all sorts depending on the environment and activity and I still listen to records. Chilling on my porch, listen to records with a bottle of Vino is my idea of a pretty nice night. I consider myself pretty handy around the house, being the son of a carpenter and sometimes like to take on little projects and build something.
What I am looking for in a woman first and foremost is someone that is compatible with me. This doesn't necessarily mean we must have many things in common, but rather that we are willing to grow, challenge, educate and share life with one another. She must be honest and trustworthy. Open minded and intelligent. She must be beautiful and humble with her beauty. She should be down to earth and independent. Low maintenance when needs be, but enjoys the finer things in life and likes to get dressed up for a night on the town with her date. Someone who enjoys camping in the mountains just as much as a 5 star resort in Ibiza. A rodeo or a wine tasting event. Finally, a woman that puts family first... would be my ideal date. And who knows, maybe much more.
I am relatively new to the online dating world and am trying this out because I have moved alot in the past few years. If I interest you, don't be shy. Get in touch. I still prefer old fashioned social interaction over endless emails, but im giving this a shot. If we think we might like one another. Let's talk.
P.S. Yes I am aware that I have a pic on my profile without my shirt on and its pretty tacky. Ive seen plenty of women in bathing suits on the beach here as well...same thing.
P.P.S Yes, I also do smile! Alot. Im just not a fan of pics.
