I'm the kind of guy that you would like to take home to mom, but you wouldn't necessarily want to tell her why you're smiling all the time. Love, laughter, and romance is what I believe it is all about. Whether between friends or lovers, good relationships are hard work. The effort you decide to put in, is what you get in return. I understand that we all have baggage, otherwise you are way too young. It's how we unpack at a destination that speaks volumes. Excitement, intrigue, adventure, and just having a great time enjoying the gifts that we are sharing every day...is that too much to ask? Someone who knows how to treat others with the same respect with which they would like to be treated. One who is as comfortable enjoying a picnic in front of the T.V. as they are sipping champagne on an opening night. Likes to get outside more so than just walking to the car. Must like exploration. Creative, caring, compassionate, generous, and loving are just a few words that I would use to describe my ideal match. Most importantly someone who actually possesses the characteristics that they put forth in their profile. C'mon ladies, this is hard enough without having to guess what portion of your profile is talking about you, and which part is some myth meant for a romance novel. (Not diss'n the romance novels) If I am asking for that, you can be sure that you will get the same in return. So whatcha' waitin' fer...time's a wastin'.
