My ideal woman will have a sharp mind and a good sense of humor. She takes good care of herself, is honest, compassionate, and is financially responsible. Mutual physical attraction is important. I generally find myself most attracted to women who have a slender or athletic body type. Some free time and finances to travel would be nice!
I have great love and compassion for animals, and you must too. If you’ve never had an emotional bond with a pet, we will not fully understand each other. If hunting and fishing are among your interests, no need to read further.
I’ve been a vegetarian for a long time, primarily for humane reasons, though health benefits and environmental benefits have been a nice side-effect. You need not be a vegetarian, but must understand and respect it, and it would be nice if you were “close” or “open for trying it”.
My Grandpa used to say: “When you work, work hard. And when you play, play hard. And don’t get the two mixed up.” I try to follow that philosophy.
Most find me easy to talk with, though I am a bit reserved. I work hard to keep myself fit... physically, mentally, and emotionally. I am organized and neat, though not fanatical. I have a good sense of humor, am honest, financially responsible, and level-headed. Good manners and good grammar are important to me.
I don't drink, by choice. I have nothing ethical against it, but if you want to drink with someone or you find touring wineries interesting, I'm not your guy. I'm also not for you if you have a deep faith in God... I'm a free-thinker.
One more note... on a previous internet-dating site, I made a commitment to respond to all messages and inquiries, which I managed to keep for the year I was enrolled. Sadly, that could be difficult at times due to time constraints, so I'm going to be more practical this time around. I truly appreciate any contact I receive, but please don't take it personally if you don't hear back from me. I know you understand, and are dealing with the same issues in your own way. Best of luck!
