I am having a GREAT life! I've taken the "other path" and it's led me to experiences most people just dream of. And, I'm not done yet. I am the joker at the party (to hide my shyness) and the intellectual, too. I love the outdoors; mountains, beach , desert, or watching the birds in my backyard. I am creative and enjoy making things with my hands. I have an adopted son; family is extremely important to me. All that's missing is someone to share with. I'm looking for a friend to join me on my travels through life; someone who will enjoy my company on her journeys. I believe in old fashion values like honesty and respect. I'm the guy who will always pick up the check, open your door, and find creative ways to let you know I appreciate you. I am also an incurable romantic who knows there is a princess out there looking for me.
