??? ARE YOU THE ONE TO GET ME OFF JDATE ??? I believe people who really know me would say I am a GREAT guy, a great friend and a GREAT CATCH! A man with an original mix of humor, sincerity, dedicated friendship, honesty and compassion. I am not a player or into games. I am a person who loves to laugh; I have a funny, dry, wry and somtimes sarcastic sense of humor. However, I also very much appreciate the intellectual aspects of life. I cherish good friendships and sharing quality moments with my friends and family. Family values are very important to me. I have two beautiful daughters (23 and 20), whom I love more than anything. I am an AVID TENNIS PLAYER. I enjoy: cooking and dining out, wines, martinis, tequilas, movies, theater, reading, and music such as: classic rock, jazz , Motown, R&B, and "road house" blues - pretty much all genres. I am a big Ravinia fan too. I also enjoy outdoor activities such as: biking, camping, fishing and boating. I think I'm unique in many ways, but I leave that for others to discover about me. I'm drawn to a person with depth, who is looking to appreciate and understand others; one who is intelligent and easy going, good at being a friend, romantic, self-assured, yet humble & open-minded, likes to laugh and have fun, yet also is willing and capable of being serious and vulnerable. I do know that chemistry is important, and someone who is looking to create a real partnership supported by mutual respect, TRUST, love and a healthy balance in life, is a person I would like to meet. I am a down-to-earth guy with a kind heart, a strong sense of commitment and loyalty to those important in my life. I'm very communicative, sincere, considerate and affectionate, and have been told I'm an excellent listener(among other things). I am complete as a person, just missing that "special someone." Could that someone be you?
