I'm funny, gentle, passionate, affectionate, patient, easy going, down to earth, a good listener, great with kids, and a very loyal and caring person. I tend to see and laugh about the absurdities of life. Music is very important to me my tastes are pretty diverse swing to neo-punk, with some folk and alt country. I occasionally enjoy sporting events, but I'm not a huge sports fan. I am very handy, having owned and fixed up 2 houses. Though I've traveled quite a bit in the US and the Caribbean, I haven't made it to Europe yet. I'm happy taking long walks exploring the city, or hiking in the woods. I'm easy, either going out to dinner and a movie, or a concert, or staying home and cooking dinner. I like mysteries, but not surprises. Letterman over Leno.
