I'm a father to two incredible little (and growing!) ones. I cherish my relationship with them, with my family, and with my friends. I'm down to earth, honest, responsible, fun-loving, and easy-going. I can speak openly about uncomfortable subjects. I enjoy spur-of-the-moment weekend road trips as much as the elaborate vacations planned months in advance. I love dogs. Cats, well, not so much. The same usually holds true for dog lovers vs. cat lovers. If you also own a bird, the deal's off. I have trust issues, and I don't trust that you won't sprinkle some magic love potion on me at any time that will make me do everything you want on my hands and knees. That'll happen anyway, but really, it's much better without the smell of kitty litter and all that squawking. I seek someone who is thoughtful but not calculated. She has an awareness and concern for what's going on in the world. Someone who is spiritually growing but not the religious type. Somebody who values and enjoys family, is sensitive, but is a free-spirited kid at heart. Emotionally mature and intelligent, yet slightly crazy. In a word, somebody who is balanced. When did wanting it all become too much to ask? Politically and economically, I'm a feminist who champions equality. When it comes to relationships and matters of the heart however, I believe a man should be a man and a woman should be a woman. Oh did I mention I'm a handful? The right woman knows how to handle me in a way that brings joy to life.
