More About MeI am stubborn,vain, prideful, and often moody. I am loyal, generous, good hearted, tolerant, respectful, well mannered, and erudite.Dictatorial and rude people would not like me but good and kind people would. I never made an enemy of a good person and I 've often helped those who needed badly a "hand up in life" .My parents were the world's best role models and their examples stayed with me forever. I admire beauty and charm in women and I honor their virtue and grace.I am sensuous and reserved, decorous and bawdy, impulsive and cautious, courtly and provincial.I have the mind of a professor of ancient history and the body of a butcher's boy. In order to keep sane in a crazy world, I pray and do good deeds.
Political AffiliationGOP ...but that is no longer carved in stone
Who I Would Like to MeetI want a woman who loves me deeply and values me as her mate/partner.She must be morally straight,spiritual,intelligent, sensible, charming, polished, and articulate.I prefer someone of northern European stock with good attractive facial features and a fit , healthy body.Humor and wit are absolutley essential and equally vital is a civilized appreciation of the arts and humanities.I would love an actress (someone whom I could partner onstage in plays). In short, a pretty, charming girlwith a stong body and sound morality who has intelligence and talent.
