I believe in chivalry, respect, appreciation, trust, commitment, spontaneous romantic gestures, and that a sense of humor alleviates a lot of tension. I love family and friends and enjoy spending time with them. I also very much enjoy spending time with that one special person I am seeking a woman for a long term monogamous relationship who is truly happy in her current life, but recognizes that new individuals mean new opportunities for personal growth. It is my hope that she has a great sense of humor, is somewhat athletic, enjoys traveling, has a cadre of good friends that support and respect her, and that she loves and respects her family and friends.I'm a kid at heart with a great sense of humor. I love to laugh and have fun. I've been accused of being a pseudo intellectual, so be ready to have some great conversations. I'm pretty easy going & optimistic. I try to accentuate the positive and don't sweat the small stuff. I would rather discuss and agree to disagree than get angry. I'm a lover not a fighter (unless someone messes with my woman!).
