I am an easy going guy with a great sense of humor looking for a friendship that could develop into something long term. I am a one woman man. I want to slowly develop a truly deep and long lasting friendship and relationship with a women. I want her to be my partner for life, but also my best friend. Fully open communication is very important to me, there should be no holding anything back, no subjects should be off the table. If something isn't working, you have to be willing to talk about it or hear about it so we can work it out.
I like hiking, road trips around the southwest, fine dining, cooking for family and friends (give me a recipe and I can cook anything, I am also a scratch baker), playing games (card, board, Words with Friends, Scramble with Friends, pool, ping pong) (not the emotional kind), and golf. I exercise at least an hour every day in some way, cycling, weight-lifting, golf, walking.
I was married for 30 years, and have an 18 year old son who is a freshman at a Texas college.
I am fiscally very secure, debt free, own my own home, and have been at the same job for 20 years. I love my job. I am the Chief Architect at a company that writes computer security software for mainframe computers. I work four days a week. I have started on my "Fridays off forever plan". I have enough vacation that I take a vacation day every Friday. Over time I will continue to work fewer days each week until I retire. I am thinking of retiring in four or five years.
I want you to be someone who does not mind getting dirty, hiking, digging for rocks and gems, working out, working around the house, playing sports, etc. However I do want you to be able to dress up when the occasion calls for it, or even to just surprise me at times in something sexy. I want you to have an independent side. While I want to be the one you turn to for most of your desires, wants, and needs, I do not want you to be totally dependent on me for what you want out of life. If there are activities that you want to do, that I do not, that is ok, we can have activities of our own.
I am affectionate and loving. I want to take care of you, and I want you to take care of me. I would love cuddling with you under a blanket on a rainy day watching TV, falling asleep and waking up in your arms.
So, if you think I could be the man you are looking for and you think you are the women for me drop me an email. We can either meet or just chat on email for awhile. Whichever way works best for you.
