A recent transplant to my new hometown - New Orleans. What a city! Great food, phenomenal music, beautiful architecture and wonderful people - a true American melting pot. Who says you can't find love and romance in middle age? Now I ask you, is that too much to hope for?
How to begin....well....I spent the better part of more years than I'd like to count, raising my 3 children on my own. What am I looking for? For starters, I'm looking for a woman who is comfortable with a blended family, married no more than one time, 40's to 50's, and seeks a committed monogamous relationship. Perfection is not in the description, as if any human is perfect. Every rose has its thorns. It's the imperfections that make people interesting. I appreciate: A woman with a positive and sunny disposition who likes to have fun; A woman who is physically fit and/or working on it; A woman who is strong and yet feminine; A woman who takes care of herself yet doesn't mind getting her hands dirty; A woman with a kind heart who can put the needs of others before her own; A woman with an adventuring spirit; A woman who wants to live and not simply let life pass her by as she counts the grandchildren; A woman who loves the Church, looks forward to her callings, and enjoys going to the Temple; A woman who is not tattooed, knee-deep in cats, or carries a little dog around in her purse. And finally.....eyebrows, eyebrows would be nice. For Heaven's sake ladies, put down the tweezers before you end up having to put eyebrows on with a Sharpie!
What about me....I'm the Managing Director/CEO of a manufacturing company that produces building components for residential/commercial construction and is involved in residential/commercial property development. I do a little acting as a hobby. So far 5 motion pictures and 3 TV shows but not heading to "The Red Carpet" anytime soon. I have an outgoing personality (have never met a stranger), been married once, a strong testimony of the Gospel, and disgustingly healthy. I'm a risk-taker, love Snicker Candy Bars and South Park (Lord help me), and I have an extremely positive outlook on life, not the least bit cynical. I am non-judgmental but will not compromise my own values. I enjoy being outdoors and being active but definitely enjoy quiet times at home as well. I believe in giving back to my community. I would love to go on a full-time mission at some point. I can cook, however, I am ready to pass that responsibility. So....if you are good in the kitchen or better yet a chef - What's for dinner?
I believe our lives are defined by events. "Drama" and "baggage" are part and parcel of our life experiences. Stuff happens! Everyone has a certain amount of both but it's the drama in life that gives you passion and makes you strong. Yesterday, life was heading in one direction. Today it's heading in another. When you meet someone, it's a brand new game and time to shake off the past. It's an opportunity to build something real and lasting. Someone once said: "In the end, we only regret the chances we did not take, relationships we were afraid to have, and the decisions we waited too long to make."
Another thing, my "bucket list" is quite long. I need a partner in crime to blend our lists and begin checking off each entry one by one.
P.S. All photos were taken in 2013, 2014, and 2015 except the promotional photo which was taken in 2011. Please have current photos as well. It would be nice to recognize you should we ever meet.
Also.....I am undecided about a long distance relationship. They can be frustrating. I have been there once before with disappointing results. But.....hope springs eternal, you never know where "The One" might be. Probably best to be open minded and keep one's options open. Sometimes finding "The Right Person" requires a little effort. Good luck in your search.
