Perhaps it's my Texas heritage, but I still believe in chivalry and honor. Pulling out chairs and opening doors is like breathing. A romantic at heart, I appreciate the nicer things in life but don’t have to have them to be content, or to enjoy life. I am passionate and fiercely loyal to those I love. Once you have gained my trust, all I am is yours. I love being active physically and socially, but appreciate my personal space and down time.
I love the excitement of adventure and need challenges to keep me motivated and interested. I am well rounded in my education, life experience, and accomplishments and appreciate witty humor and the right touch of playful sarcasm.. My sense of humor is a little dry so you will have to stay on your toes to keep up.
Of course, I find most women need no explanation concerning the characteristics of men, but for those naive ones out there here are some fair warnings: real men get dirty and sweat. They don't get manicures, facials or wax their eye brows. They aren't found in skinny jeans, and they know how to kill something, cook it and eat it.
My ideal woman is intelligent, beautiful and committed to family. She is comfortable in her own skin and confident in my affections. Laid back, the less make up the better, natural beauty is her strength. Her ability to carefully choose her battles demonstrates her wisdom, and senseless drama is not in her tool belt.
