A little about me...
I am a romantic at heart..... I love to do those "little things" for those I am involved with and appreciate it when it's reciprocated back. Up until recently I did not have a good "work / life" balance, poured way too much of myself into work and have learned that (yes I'll say one of the biggest cliches known to mankind) "Life is too short" and here's #2 - "Don';t sweat the small stuff". So, now although I enjoy my job, it's just that "a job". I much prefer to spend time w/ family and friends and expereience things that I've never done before. Once you win me over, there is nothing I won't do for you (OK, maybe one or two things) but we can cover that later...
About the one I'm looking for...
I am looking for someone who is sincere, honest and has the highest standard of ethics. I tend to be a bit sarcastic in my humor (in a light-hearted way) so if you can appreciate that and join in, we will get along just fine. I like to try new things, travel to new places and balance that with just staying home, cooking a good meal, enjoying a good glass of wine (or a beer, especially if it's really hot outside!) and cuddling on the couch w/ a favorite movie and a favorite person. I also like to go to sporting events, plays, concerts, festivals, hike/bike and go for long walks with my Boston Terrier - I hope that I can find a person to share at least some of these things with and that they can in return share their passions with me.
I'd just like to add...
I feel that one of the keys to a great relationship is "compromise". I think we all know that no relationship is perfect (nor is any one person) but being able to take the good with the bad and looking at life as if the glass is 1/2 full, not 1/2 empty is what I think makes relationships stronger in the end.

My Top Interests:
Nature and Outdoors
I like to bike, go hiking, explore new places - Of special interest is to go on "beach" vacations where I hope to find the deepest turquoise waters and the whitest sand beaches. Still searching, but it's fun trying.
Wine Tasting and Spirits
I love to try new wines and visit vineyards to see how wine is made, expereience the wine tasting, and try out new B&B's during the process..... I think I missed my calling in life - to own a vineyard / winery would be unbelievable!
Family and Friends
I am blessed that my parents are still here, live close by and are relatively healthy. I also have 2 beautiful girls who were adopted from China when they were babies (now 10 & 14), they are with me 50% of the time and are amazing kids in every sense of the word. I enjoy cooking for friends, going out and trying new restaurants from fancy to the great "hole in the wall" that can have the best food around...
