Passionate man seeking passionate woman with good head on her shoulders who appreciates the parallel between a long slow romantic build up to (as great chef's know) making a great sauce. Are you a tactile person- someone with passion about life who enjoys hugging, kissing or holding hands. I am close to my family, am great with kids (have a niece and three nephews) and value good friendships. I am happy, healthy (work out 5x a week) with a good disposition in a career that I enjoy and living life! Generally pretty balanced but could always make the time to smell a few more roses, travel a bit more for pleasure, and see a few more sunsets! And don't worry, I have room for you! Have diverse interests to share ranging from scuba diving, boating on Long Island Sound (come share a sunset during a full moon on a starry clear summer night!), and beyond (watching sunsets, star gazing, cruising, swimming, exploring, dock n dine), tennis, golf, sailing, hiking, biking, skiing, museums, theatre, movies, collecting autographs, gourmet cooking, avid Chelsea (English Premiership soccer) fan, blogging, travel, particularly adventure travel and labradors (don't have one but would like one-or if you already have one or two-great!) . I'd love to know what you are interested in and share your interests. I'd like to continue to grow with a soul mate, am willing to try new things and love to explore life to its fullest. Would prefer if you were within an hour's drive.
