A little about me...
I am an intelligent gentleman with conservative values. You might say I'm from the "old school". I build houses and develop land. I have a degree in civil engineering and an MBA. I've done 1400 home inspections and have even taught school (7th grade science until I couldn't take the daily headaches anymore). I enjoy eating out, spending time at the beach, walks, drives to nowhere in particular, reading, solving sudoku puzzles, riding my bike (the type without an engine), playing casino blackjack (but only if I can count!). I love to design and build one-of-a-kind houses. I enjoy quiet nights at home, stimulating conversation, outdoor concerts, museums, travel, day trips, architecture, Friendly's Swiss Chocolate Almond sundaes (2 scoops vanilla, 1 chocolate!), garlic, good Italian food, better Italian food!, chocolate, and good home-cooked meals. (did I mention ice cream?)I am looking forward to partial retirement so I can have more time to travel, see more of this country, take some cruises, do some exploring, and enjoy life! I have been told that I look younger than my age and that I am honest, dependable, affable, romantic, and "the salt of the earth". I have perseverance and integrity. I like a little adventure!
About the one I'm looking for...
I am attracted to intelligent, compassionate, affectionate, well-groomed women with high values, good taste, a good outlook on life, and a little "spunk". The more she smiles the better. Someone who appreciates the little things a man might do for her to show her that he cares and is content to be with her. Someone whose whole life is not tied up in her career (She wouldn't have time or energy for me!) Someone who takes the time to stop and smell the roses. Someone who enjoys spontaneity - is willing to go someplace on short notice. It makes life more interesting and fun. Someone whose main goal in life is not to visit every European country but rather to find love and develop it and nurture it and enjoy it.
I'd just like to add...
Ideally our first meeting would be at a casual restaurant so I could check you out, err no, I mean so we could talk and get to know each other, while enjoying coffee and dessert, or an adult beverage and an appetizer, or maybe a sundae. If the weather is warm a trip to a park and maybe a picnic (we could each bring some things). If we click.....
