I'm just a normal, professional guy. I work hard to get the things I want and I treat myself and the people I care about well. I prefer beer or wine to cocktails, GAP to Gucci and small gatherings with friends to mobs of people in a club. I'm originally from Little Rock, AR. Though I've been in the Boston area for 10 years now and have lived and traveled around the world, I'm still a country boy at heart. I believe in good manners and kindness, and I love to be outdoors--though I totally admit I'm a wimp when it comes to the cold weather!
I've decided I'm too old for the bar scene and my circle of friends seems to consist mostly of straight married folks, so I'm hoping this will be a good way to meet people. I'm definitely an introvert; my idea of hell is walking into a room full of people I don't know or into a party where I only know one person and he disappears before I've warmed up. Look out once I do get comfortable, though--I get feisty and playful! I'm a wicked smart ass and love to tease and play and laugh.
I'm looking for someone like me who is more settled, who isn't into The Scene, doesn't have to be out and about every night and is comfortable enough in his own skin to just "be". I want someone who is as independent as I am, who can be comfortable being in the same room or house with me but not necessarily always doing the same thing as me. As cliche as it may sound, I do think you need separation (figuratively, at least) to truly enjoy togetherness. I'm fiercely loyal and loving but need someone who can be a grounding force in my life and the center of my world without trying to be my entire world.
