I grew up in the Midwest. I am half Italian and half French Canadian. My career is in Project Control Management of major construction projects. I am stable in my life and have many hobbies and social activities I enjoy. I am affectionate and loving and I want a woman in my life for intimacy and companionship. I am not looking for a relationship to get a life because I already have one. I am looking for a relationship that would enhance my life. I want to be with someone who shares some interests and goals with me but also has her own interests and goals to help her grow as a person and contribute to us as a couple. A good relationship will take work. You can't get from another person what you don't have within. I want to preserve what is started and add to it. Past relationships have taught me how to be a better listener and how to compromise a little more. I am looking for unconditional love, where both persons are willing to see another way of doing things or another point of view. Each person should bring out the best in the other. We should be able to depend on each other and be able to forgive the imperfections of being human. The ideal relationship has trust, open communication and willingness to process conflict. By learning to resolve issues, not running from or ignoring them, we would continue to build upon a loving relationship.
