I'm a very inquisitive person, have a wide spectrum of interests. I can dress up if the occasion merits, but I'm much more comfortable in jeans and sneakers. I also believe in treating someone the way you like to be treated. I enjoy the romance of little actions (opening doors for someone, making surprises for someone, and more) and definitely don't think that "romance" needs to be a major (and rare) production -- though something big now and then is nice, too. As for appearance, I think it is important to notice that I am a bigger guy so if you want a slim, athletic man, then I am not the one for you. But I am secure in myself and very comfortable to embrace. It's fine if you are tall, too -- it does not bother me at all.
How would you describe your ideal partner?
Someone who is open and very warm and caring, who can trust and knows that relationships take work and is willing to do it. Someone who does not think life is perfect like a movie, but understands that there are good times and bad times in every couple. Someone who is open-minded and has a good sense of humor and is a very affectionate and loving person. Someone who wants to have a family. I know I am older, but I still very much would like to have children, even a big family.
