Thank you very much for viewing my profile. I hope you are a wonderful woman who is full of loveliness both inside and out. If you enjoy a gentleman who exercises his mind as well as his body, then perhaps we are a match. You will be treated with dignity and respect and hopefully you will treat me the same. Moreover, you are a woman who keeps her word and similar to me, you think of the other person not just yourself. I'm part very cultural and part very Tarzan. And, I am a very affectionate man and Mediterranean without the temper. Do you like that? Hopefully, you don't mind all the hiking I do, not only in the area but out west. Many interesting wildlife adventures including several close encounters with animals you don't keep for pets.:-) (No one here has a profile that says must love 800 lb elk, do they?). And please forgive me for being a lifelong Yankee fan--yes, I love baseball...and I'm a guy. You can always get me to go to a museum, art gallery, movies, ballgame, or anything outdoors and/or interesting. I'll go to a chick flick with you, if it makes you happy.:-) And even, though I am a college prof, I promise to do my best to listen. After all I'm not the font of all wisdom.:-) One thing is that I always try to do the right thing even when it is unpopular. Thus at work or in life, I'm not a follower--but am a leader or an independent. But it is important for both people in a relationship to recognize that they have to sacrifice some independence to make a relationship work. If any of what I have written resonates with you, then please feel free to write me.
