The person I meet would have to be my friend, be able to tell me anything, not be judgemental, be compassionate, have a great sense of humor, make my heart race and make me smile when I see her. I would best describe my lifestyle as fairly simple. I don't hang out in bars or require to go out every weekend. I like to visit with friends and family, but also am comfortable just being home relaxing or doing things around the house. Although the finer things in life are nice, I don't feel I need to have them in order to be happy. To me, the most important thing in life for me right now is finding happiness for myself, having stability for my family, and knowing that I have done everything to achieve that. In our free time, my ideal match and I would relax in the back yard, work on projects, go for long walks, visit friends or family, go to movies, baseball or football games, sleep in, watch tv together, travel. To me, romance means candle lit dinners, soft music, soft lights, quiet time by the fireplace, a moonlit walk, a stroll on the beach, a picnic lunch with wine and cheese in the park, slow, close dancing, a night-time horse and buggy ride, a surprise trip to nowhere in particular, a babysitter for the kids at least one night a week, a favorite book, lots of hugs and kisses, love notes left in both strange and obvious places, an original poem or a love letter, a phone call at work for no reason, a single flower, waking up together to watch the sun rise.
