If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun. I thrive on new experience and adventure. I believe in being a gentleman and I'm a little old-fashioned in that regard. I hate the pick-up game, I don't play it. I love to have some drinks watching a band, go see some art, hang with friends.. Listen to music maybe watch a movies but most imporant, I love to talk to the right person, what I mean I love conversation that you grow from. my ideal mate would have to inspire that. I live art and culture... I'm very curious and open-minded. I go to great lengths to absorb life. A honest person to a fault, I like when someone is open with ideas, creative things, changing the way you see the world. I want to be with someone that you just can not wait to tell them the things that happen good and bad. knowing they are there for you. Also, if you do not love kids then it would be a waste of time, my girls are number one. they are special and make my life better.
