Hi and thankyou for taking the time to read my profile,I am an oldfashoned guy..,single never married,,but would like to meet my best friend and partner,,I really believe there is ,,I am told by my friends, always smiling,and make others too.I am a great listener,and love to talk.. I have been in athletics all my life ,,but not a fanatic, was an All American in swimming,,and still do it as well as teach,, love to cook from scratch,,,(yes i watch cooking shows).,and being outdoors. ( Also pretty good at the BBQ). I work for a telecomminucations co., firedept, and volunteer at times for different causes. At times , personal training now and then. I have always believed in chivalry, from opening doors, to walking on the side of the street..,, I enjoy music from the 70's and modern also and , love Barry White . I try to follow a saying once read long ago,," If at the end of your rope,,tie a knot and hang on". I'm still looking for that fairy tale romance. I believe there is someone out there for everyone . "A dream will always be a dream if it stays in your head, don't give up." I wish all of you on this site to find that best friend and life long partner!The lady i am looking to meet is friendly,enjoys outdoors, athletics , enjoys the time being with her friends , and liking to know mine as well. And you like being around, and with, a protective ,, not possesive guy. I like spontaneous,,as well as a planned event,, A girl who enjoys just being with me for no reason other than that . Someone that i can lite up her smile as she will mine ,, all those butterflies and tummy tingles,,and who loves a guy that is romantic and original..loves to give "hugs",,and hold hands!! Oh!! and I'm a great cuddler! I wish we all find that everlasting partner and best friend forever!
