I like simplicity, I am a good listener, emotional, affectionate and romantic--in proportion to the situation. I have a big heart I am kind and compassionate and have no problem expressing myself, however, I reserve that for those who are of like-mindedness when it comes to honesty with themselves and being truthful in their dealings with others. I have a positive attitude, with a good sense of humor, and good taste for style. I enjoy good wine I play chess and I like sitting by the fireplace. I love skydiving, gardening, swimming and fencing. I am good at showing grace under pressure, taking the high road, and laughing (especially at myself). I am not easily discouraged, I readily visualize myself as overcoming obstacles, winning out over set backs, achieving 'impossible' objectives. I really like a great intellectual conversation, I am extremely romantic and polite. I like to hold the door open for other people, I pull out the chair for someone to sit and I believe in helping others by doing volunteering work. I believe that everyone should be helping to keep the planet clean and safe and protect the animals from certain humans who are the real animals. I believe in God, living responsibly, respectfully, appreciatively; taking nothing for granted, not even the little things; and seeing beauty in everything. I am very romantic and I like to hold my woman close to my heart, kiss her sweetly and softly for hours.
