I am of average appearance, and I know I could dress better, but my job can be hard on good clothing
I think it is great; others think I'm amusing 2/3 of the time I believe
I have wide and varied interests, from medieval armour to building computer networks. I like to read, would like to do more hiking and camping. I love traveling and learning about other cultures firsthand rather than just watching a movie or television show. I enjoy trying to learn new languages, or at least a few words to communicate with someone in their native language. Particularly if they have learned English, I think this is only fair and hopefully courteous.
I have been to Costa Rica, Mexico, Greece, United States, England (and technically Germany and France, though only the Frankfurt and Charles de Gaulle airports--do they count?)
I would hope that I am quite adaptive. I enjoy other cultures, and appreciate the unique differences exist as they keep life exciting.
there would be a quiet, starry night, somewhere away from the world for us to sit, a warm jacuzzi or natural hot springs nearby, strawberries, pineapple, slightly exotic (to Canada, anyway) fruits; we would need a cabin somewhere with a cozy bed to lie in together either napping or being intimate; no electricity, candles are much better, and a fireplace, with olive-wood (it smells wonderful and burns without sparks and loud pops).
In my youth I was too shy; now I'm much less so. I am still a bit shy about meeting women, though; just not about much else. I have a strong sense of fair-play, and loathe hypocrisy. I try not to lie to people, even to avoid hurting their feelings. I am not perfect, have never believed myself to be so, and never expect to be so either. I don't expect perfection of others, either. I believe in courtesy and good manners, that etiquette is what separates us from animals. Having said that, however, I don't take this to an extreme.
A confident, intelligent woman who has traditional values, realistic expectations, and does not fear speaking her mind. A woman who recognizes that we don't always have to agree about everything, but also recognizes that we have to come to some sort of compromise (both of us, not just one or the other) A woman who can be my friend, who can be silly, who doesn't always take herself too seriously. A woman who can be both practical and fun, who can save money as well as spend it, who can do housework as well as make me do some of it too. A woman who will let me cook sometimes, but not make me cook all the time. To summarize, a woman who recognizes that a relationship is an equal partnership of sharing, caring, cherishing, appreciating and loving one another.
