My passions are God, people, music and art. I love spending time with friends and family, as well as meeting new people. I LOVE music! I sing, am a musician, play piano and other instruments. I just recently moved to CA from AZ, to be closer to my immediate family.
Born in the United Kingdom, the son of missionaries, I grew up mostly in Europe and East Africa and moved to the US about 14 years ago. I really love to travel, and have experienced other cultures in Scandinavia, Britain, Western and Eastern Europe, North and East Africa and Asia. It has broadened my world view tremendously and now I have friends all over the world! I love and want children. I don't consider myself to be an extrovert but enjoy talking with people and can hold my own in social gatherings. I can be a bit of a comedian, consider myself to be a romantic at heart and genuine (what you see is what you get), a loyal friend, kind, encouraging, affectionate and caring person. I am passionate and not afraid to show emotion and speak out regarding things that are important to me.
I definitely enjoy sports! Growing up I was pretty athletic and played rugby, table tennis, soccer, cricket, volleyball, field hockey, badminton and ran track competitively. I enjoy watching all of these sports, as well as college basketball and football, but have to confess I'm not a huge baseball fan. :( That does not mean that I can't get excited about it with you however! :) I am not into the party and night club scene, but wouldn't mind giving ballroom or salsa dancing a try. I enjoy going to museums, art galleries, symphony orchestra, plays, live music venues, historical landmarks, dining out, hanging out at the beach or walking along the sea front and spending quality time. :) I'm easily entertained and pretty 'low maintenance'. If you're looking for a guy who is super 'flash' and into every fashion, glitz and glamor, living the high life, then I'm probably not your man. While I have dreams I'm actively pursuing, I have learned to be content with both little and much, thankful for what I have, and realized that true joy in life for ME is not obtained through status and material wealth (though both are valid and useful) but in meaningful relationships, doing good on behalf of others and fulfilling my God given purpose in this life. If these are values you share, and you're looking for something a bit deeper, perhaps more stable, then I could be your man. :)
I am looking for the woman that I will become 'right' for and vice versa, a friendship that will become a romantic relationship that will hopefully lead to marriage. At this stage in life I am not interested in a short, hot and passionate fling. Chemistry IS important to me, I do have Latin blood in me :), but there must be more than 'passion' to sustain a relationship. My ideal woman loves God and loves people and is outgoing, is someone I can share my beliefs and life with and whose life I can share in and be a support to also. She is intelligent and can think for herself, and has a thoughtful/inquisitive, even adventurous approach to life. A woman who I can laugh with! I can be too serious at times. A woman who loves and wants children, is feminine, compassionate, not afraid of affection, honest, a woman who takes care of herself, is attractive but not obsessed with image (vanity is a huge turn off for me) and a woman whose dreams and aspirations I can support and encourage. A woman I can sit and have a cup of coffee and intelligent conversation with...about anything and everything. These are my 'likes', but at the end of the day I am not looking for the 'perfect woman' who meets a list of criteria 'perfectly', as I know I come up short myself, but a woman who is willing to grow with me and together ultimately help one another reach our full potential.
p.s. A small but rather important detail...I am allergic to cats!!! Sorry!
