ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

I have a young daughter who's my number one priority but I also have room in my life for a loving relationship with the right woman. I’m very happy with my life as it is but I miss holding hands and sharing life’s adventures with someone (other than my daughter).
I’m not looking for a woman to be her mother but I’d welcome you into her life. My daughter has a great mom who I'm still friends with.

I have a genuine appreciation for obvious and subtle strengths in a woman. I’ll be your best friend, have your back and hope you’ll have mine. I’ve grown stronger from past failures but not cocky from my successes.

I'm a very loyal, rock solid man. No drama and no games. Family and friends are very important to me. I'm affectionate, caring and adventurous; willing to try almost anything (legal) once. I enjoy dining out in nice restaurants; who wouldn't want someone else to wait on them, but I'd love to cook for you. I love going to the movies (as apposed to just watching them on t-v) and I always have a book to read. I love being outdoors and enjoy street fairs and Ravinia. I'm into antiques, especially art deco, and I collect vintage movie posters. While I'm not a big sports fan, I still watch the games with friends and I am a huge Bears fan. Therapy for me is gardening in my back yard. I dress casually most of the time but do put on a suit and tie when the occasion calls for it. I love architecture.

I enjoy traveling, like to stay in nice hotels and I enjoy camping occasionally. I’ve ridden my motorcycle to California and Mexico.

So what am I looking for in a woman? Intelligence and good sense of humor is a good place to start. Outgoing and a little adventurous would be nice. I like creativity and, of course, any relationship should be built on mutual respect. I give people a wide berth to be who they are. Obviously there has to be chemistry between us. We value time together and respect our time apart. We can be playful together or just enjoy chilling out.

I’m a former health club manager and fitness trainer. I work out three to four times a week and appreciate a woman who keeps herself in shape. My profile says I'm athletic and toned but because my idea of an energy bar is a Snickers, and I know Guiness contains all the essential amino acids, I do have a little bit of a spare tire, or "love handles".

I could go on and on but I guess I have to leave some things for future conversations when we meet.
