I have lived in several cities and countries and recently moved to NW Florida. I have a few advanced degrees covering a gamut of technical and non-technical areas.
I am 6’ 3” and going to a gym and kayaking regularly to look even better. I am self-sufficient, self-confident, stable and successful. I am not the life of the party unless I know everyone at the party. I am kind, courteous, helpful, affectionate and loving to those that have earned it. I enjoy concerts and dancing to pre 90’s rock and post 80’s country. I like to work, I like to accomplish, and I like to laugh.

The first date is really just a coffee date or coffee and a cupcake. Let’s see if there is still mutual interest. We are looking for the good in each other to see if we should go on a DATE date. I don’t approach dating like buying a house with all the “must haves”, “MUST have 4 bedrooms, MUST have 3.5 bathrooms, MUST have 3 car garage, MUST be located within 7 blocks of a good elementary school.” To me, dating is about exploring the good parts of each other to see if there is something to build a relationship on – platonic or romantic.
The first DATE date will be some goofy activity that fits the current weather. A place where we can walk and talk, laugh, have some fun and a glass of wine and get to know each other even better. Let's explore each other’s good qualities, share about our childhoods, what we are doing now and where we want to be in the future. Let’s learn about our likes, dislikes, shared interests, commonalities and our differences and decide if those would mesh into a fun, exciting second date or more.
Educated, happy, adventurous, confident, secure man that enjoys people and life. I like to laugh and to have deep philosophical discussions and I can do both at the same time. I am a romantic at heart but a realist as well; relationships take work, commitment, flexibility and fun.
There is good in almost everybody if you take the time to find it. Seek to understand and empathize before seeking to be understood.
My kids, freedom, sunshine, water (fog, mist, rain, creeks, bayous, lakes, bays and oceans), intelligent friends, passionate friendships.
Up before sunrise, drink coffee in the fog on my dock, kayak for an hour, clean up, lunch with friends, dinner and dancing with my date for the evening ...
