A little about me...
When I was 17, I enlisted for 4 years into the Marine Corps. I learned discipline, courage, honor, tenacity, etc. I believe that those lessons served me well through out my life. I succeeded at most every endeavor I attempted. Hard work, luck. intuition and instinct provided me and my family a storybook existence and we all lived very well, and travelled often. My marriage ended 11 years ago after a run of 30 years. I was given custody by the court of my turning 15 year old daughter. Her nearest sibling was 7 years her senior and all were away at colleges. I decided to become her "Mr. Mom." I did all all that a single parent knows too well, what that entails. I washed, cooked, cleaned, etc, spent rainy afternoons at the soccer fields, and became a very domestic male. My reward was that it was MY shoulder that she cried on, and MY confidence and guidance that she sought. I feel that I was the winner and benefited the most. I grew substantially as a person from this experience. She's now married and has a double Master's and points towards her Doctorate. I'm proud of us both for having survived the storm and managed to move on successfully.
I need a companion of intelligence, beauty with style and grace.
About the one I'm looking for...
I wish that my world would be blessed by the type of lady I just described.
I am by nature a man that will dote upon, please and pamper, not smother.
As I wind down my life and consider the life of the machismo alpha male that was played for so long, I would be perfectly at home with a sexually aggressive and assertive lady. I did it for so long that I have no desire to play that game any longer. If there is a good match out there, I would be happy to consider a long term relationship. I am, by nature a giver and truly enjoy bringing pleasure to those that are close. I can not deal with a person who is self absorbed, a taker or one that acts with an air of entitlement. I do the best with a fellow giver and one that cares to be reciprocal.
Having served 4 years in the Marine Corps, I've seen as many tattoos as I care to see! Please, no tattoos!
I'd just like to add...
I was a trumpet playing jazz musician in my younger days. I love music!
Primarily jazz and salsa, but classical as well. I enjoy live music and have been a regular at many Jazz clubs in Boston, NYC and San Francisco. I love to cook, also to eat and enjoy several restaurant outings a week.
Ah, my 2 boys! The loves of my life are really my "best friends" Poncho ( a 3 yr old Goldendoodle) and Ray ( my 5 yr old rescue King Charles Cavalier Tri-Color
