Dating StatusHelpless romantic and outgoing
More About MeI am a helpless romantic and if someone can show me the same passion and romance that I also like to show, it would be dynamite. I long to have someone look me in the eye and tell me they love me and I know they mean it. I am also very social and like to meet new people and have a fun time. I always let the woman choose what she would like to do but if they defer to me I would make a decision. I feel like I am kind and considerate and just want the woman I am with to be completely at ease. I've been told several times that I am very easy to talk to probably because I do listen and can empathize with anyone. I've also been told I am a very good kisser but I don't know if that's true or not but if we are a good match maybe you can give me an opinion. :)
Hobbies / Interests / ActivitiesI love to visit different sights anywhere betgween WV and DC. I like to vacation to places around the world. I've been to Italy, the UK and Hawaii in my lifetime.
Political AffiliationI am a conservative but I do listen to what others have to say. I don't get upset just because someone has a different view than I do.
Who I Would Like to MeetAs long as someone cares about me and SHOWS it, not just give it lip service, that is all I ask for in a woman. In return you will get that affection back in spades. I also would like to find someone that likes to have fun but at the same time can also have a deep discussion about things such as relationships and life in general. I think you need to know about the person's inner most feelings as well as just having fun. I want someone who is willing to date first as friends and see where it takes us.

Subjects You Think AboutRelationships
Friday or Saturday Nights IWithout someone to go out with and enjoy places to go you will usually find me at home cleaning the house, cooking, laundry, etc. The typical things one does when he has no date.
Life GoalsMy career goals are already being fulfilled. I am retired military but currently work as an Operations Manager for a major corporation in northern VA. My goal right that I am focused on now is to find someone with as much passion as I have to put into a relationship. I've been burned a lot in my lifetime and have been deeply hurt but I am willing to open up my heart to anyone and take that chance again as long as they are honest and truthful.
SecretIf I told you it wouldn't be a secret anymore now would it? ;)
