More About MeI am the nice guy some women claim doesn't exist! I am gentle, kind, considerate, affectionate, engaging, fun, a good listener, relaxed, an animal lover, love to talk and listen, give back and shoulder rubs, travel, hike, go to the beach, eat out, etc. Values are very important to me: honesty, integrity, etc. I am loyal, faithful -I never cheated on my late wife in 25 years- non violent, never smoked or did drugs. My relationship would be 1st in my life. I am a big family man, I am open to having children, I care about others, about life, thinking and discussing life's mysteries. I am open to talking about any and all relationship problems.
Hobbies / Interests / ActivitiesBaseball, World of Warcraft, Animals, listening to music, talking to friends/family/people, learning things, Cruises, Traveling, attending church, going to concerts
Who I Would Like to MeetI am very open to various kinds of personalities; most important, though, is she likes to be with me, to talk, be affectionate, fun, and not be hung up on what people think. Caring and compassionate a must; you can be quiet and still be that way. I go crazy over cute, though it isn't necessary. She must be very affectionate and willing to receive it ; not (too) intense. Open minded in the bedroom (how much a matter of discussion), be willing to let me help meet her needs. Embracing or at least not hostile to things Christian and Conservative. Animal lover a plus. Personality trumps looks every time.
