ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

I'm a lover of life who gets the greatest joy out of the smallest things. Simple pleasures and everyday wonders delight as much as special occasions and once in a lifetime experiences. I am comfortable spending time alone, but I also enjoy sharing experiences great and small with someone special. And I believe that the foundation of a great relationship is a good friendship, mutual respect, and genuine appreciation for the honest parts of each other.

Honestly, I am just recently getting back to being single after the end of my marriage the beginning of this year (currently legally separated pending the waiting period for divorce). I'm a bit out of practice in the dating arena, but I am truly a nice guy (or so friends and family keep telling me). I really believe the best foundation for a great relationship is a true friendship. I'm not looking for everything in common, in fact I like learning about things and sharing experiences I normally wouldn't seek out on my own. That's all part of the fun of a relationship. The best part about living in the DC area is all of the great museums, culture, food and drink, parks, historic sites, music and theatre (live and movies), and even sporting events (not much of a sports fan, but I enjoy watching and going to games now and then) that this area has to offer. I've lived here more than half my life (and visited family here before that) and enjoy sharing this town and surrounding area with others, especially with someone special.

I also really enjoy travelling outside the area and would love a companion to join me exploring further afield. I've been to 48 out of 50 states (and two Canadian provinces) through a previous job with Borders Books or on personal road trips and vacations, but not too much travel overseas (Scotland, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Israel so far). I like travelling alone sometimes, but it's great to be able to share the experience with someone who appreciates it, too.

I have a lot of good, long-term friends and some close family in the area, but I'm looking to meet someone outside my current social circles to share all that life has to offer. If you're interested, say hi. As they say, nothing ventured, nothing gained...
