Life is good and exciting but more enjoyable when shared with another. As a clinical social worker, compassion, good listening skills and empathy are important attributes I have and use. I am a fan of art (impressionistic art in particular) and most types of music. I enjoy traveling and have visited many countries outside of the United States, and hope to continue to explore this beautiful world. I am usually willing to try new things (although I'm not interested in bungie jumping!) I also enjoy reading, movies, walking, and exercise. I find concerts, music, live theater and cooking pleasurable (and I'm quite a whiz in the kitchen). Family is very important to me and I am close to my 2 daughters who live out of the area. I'm looking for a committed relationship based on love, mutual respect, and honesty. If you are looking for the same thing and want someone who knows how to romance, then I am your man!
