Romantic, honest, loyal & successful semi-retired investment company owner, all around pretty humble guy with a sometimes offbeat sense of humor...or so I'm told. (Laughing Is soooo important) In addition to my life in the crazy world of commodities...precio us metals & yes, there is such a thing as pork bellies. I am spiritual in that there has to be some depth in a romantic relationship or it will crash. I am also a licensed clinical hypnotherapist. Go figure! You could say that I live comfortably. Loyalty is very important to me. Most people use the word way too loosely. Loyalty has no boundaries. I am crazy about animals and children, although not necessarily in that order. With only so many hours in a day, I have to admit that I can be selfish with whom I spend my time. I am looking for a mutually meaningful and committed relationship where quality and frivolous time are boundless. I enjoy concerts, theatre, movies, quaint places to explore, fine & simple food, Bold Starbucks, Northern California, Napa, spontaneous get-away weekends, and yes... exceptional wine!!! Life's too short to drink cheap wine!!! I'm thinking about taking another trip to Florence/Tuscany sometime very soon, but can't justify going there alone or with just anybody. It's too romantic a place to not go with someone significant. Also... I'd like to visit the Canadian Rockies! Just love nature and the Tundra. Did I say that? Tundra? Geez, I don't think I ever used that word in a sentence before.
