I am a person who values being responsible, dependable, respectful, thoughtful, honest, reliable, open-minded, perceptive, neat, hardworking, intelligent, compassionate, and caring. I was brought up to be gentlemen, respect in a relationship is vital. I have a good sense of humor and love to laugh and have fun. I enjoy the theatre, dining, and dancing. I'm looking for someone special. That person must be happy. Happiness is loving yourself and life. Love yourself first and everything else falls into place. Friendship is fundamental in a relationship. The best kind of friend is the one you could sit on a porch, and swing with, never say a word, and then walk away feeling like that was the best conversation you've had. Partnering is a choice. The choice to be in a relationship is up to you. You have the ability to attract your beloved and cause the relationship you desire to happen. Partnering is the process of sharing your life together. Building up trust is essential. It takes a lifetime to build trust and a second to destroy it. Being passionate is essential. Kissing cuddling and caressing convey feelings. Love starts with a smile, develops with a kiss, and ends with a tear.
