A little about me...
I'm the proverbial romantic in a love story or movie and believe in love, romance and sharing the wonderful things life has to offer with the right woman. Friendship & trust is the basis on which any strong, meaningful romantic relationship grows, so developing a friendship and getting to know someone over time is very important. I'm a Christian man and would like to meet someone who shares the same values.
I'm very active and like to stay fit and eat relatively healthy. I'm blessed with looking and feeling younger than my age, think young, and feel like I'm 30. Love to travel and I like to plan things but am also spontaneous, and enjoy exploring new places, jumping in the car and heading to parts unknown, or wherever might seem interesting.
Being involved in music has always been an important part of my life and I enjoy playing traditional Irish music with my friends at a weekly session. Love Celtic, classical, zydeco, bluegrass, jazz, folk, and basically anything other than rap or hip hop.
I am well-educated, a hard worker, dedicated, very optimistic, caring, easy-going, loving and affectionate with a good sense of humor (so my friends say). Not a game player, and I openly support those I love in their goals.
About the one I'm looking for...
My ideal mate is my best friend, a confident woman with a young-at-heart and playful outlook, a woman I'm attracted to on all levels who is kind with a true heart, considerate, passionate, intimate, adventurous, creative, spontaneous, caring, supportive, a good communicator and has her own interests. Having things in common we can share is important, but life is a learning process and I find it stimulating to be with someone who can introduce me to new things that can become something we can share. Sexy to me is a natural look and attitude. T-shirt and jeans. Not whips and chains, overdone caked-on make-up, painted-on eyebrows or perfume baths...Thank you! I love to hold hands, show affection, and always let my partner know we're together and she's the one. And one thing you can count on....when talking face-to-face or on the phone, you'll always have my undivided attention...not typing, checking e-mail, etc. I'm far from perfect but keep myself relatively fit, in good health and would expect the same from my partner. If you're overweight, out of shape, and don't take care of yourself, sorry but not interested.
I'd just like to add...
Sorry, but no photo or photos that aren't at least relatively current (within ~two or three years) = no reply.
If you're currently in a relationship or separated, legally or otherwise...don't want to go there.
NO SMOKERS...social or otherwise.
I'm looking for someone in the general age range of 52-62 who lives within 25-30 miles of Madison, so if that's you, I'd love to hear from you.
I don't respond to flirts or "Hey there", so if you're truly interested and would like to talk, please take the time to write and actually say something . I'm only interested in responding to a woman who takes the time to show a real interest and initiate a conversation.
