How can you really describe yourself?
As I have aged a little I have gone from wanting to be the life of the party to not minding the side lines. I love romance so much you might think I was French.
I just spent most of my life working as an executive chef, general manager or owner (actually doing what I love which some people call work) of various fine dining restaurants throughout the southeast. So that kept me from meeting new friends and finding that lady that I want to wake up next to for the next fifty years. I have started two new small businesses that will allow me to live the way I like and scale back my working hours to a very manageable few so that I can start my quest to find her. I love kids. I would love to have at least one of my own but realize that is not always possible. I do think it would be incredible if I was able to have one of each.
I am rather simple even though I may not seem to be. I love that moment when magic happens, be it through a glass of wine, eating a strawberry or a kiss that truly produces that leg weakening, lip quivering, shortness of breathe and near blindness. The simple things I have found are some of the best things in life. First I am looking for friend, not a lover. Sounds weird perhaps coming from a man I know but I do not like to dine alone. I also would much rather have a good conversation over Osso Bucco or sushi or something else then have wings with some guy. I would even prefer a pizza dinner with kids over the guy thing. I am looking for that lady that will be on my mind every minute of the day. I am also looking for that perfect kiss that will make me forget everything else around me, and let me know that this person is the one. I am at ease everywhere and always enjoy myself whether it is at a small little beach bar all the way up to going to the Royal Ballet in London.
The lady I will find may or may not have been to college but she will be successful in life, either through raising her kids(!?) or being the holy tear on the Board of Directors that makes everyone cringe when she walks into the room. She will like adventure but also love to curl up on the couch and snuggle. She may or may not have kids. She needs to have some life experience. We may have some ups and downs through life but the important part will be looking back from the other side. I am not a quitter and the grass is never greener on the other side.
