Please note: the chat feature on here does not always work for me. As I try always to reply to everyone, if you send me a chat request and I do not answer, that is the reason. Regarding halos - while it is nice to get mail, they don't say much of anything. I'd much prefer to get a concise note rather than a halo. That is, unless they are all you can send. Man who believes in traditional values, manners, and morals seeks similar-thinking woman. Primarily interested in making new friendships, or occasional dating/activity partner for company and companionship. However, I am open to God possibly leading a relationship beyond those areas. Seeking the companionship of a considerate, honest, moral lady. I am a committed evangelical Christian, a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ. The character traits I have are honesty, integrity, reliability, sincerity, and faithfulness; I have sort of a dry sense of humor. I generally enjoy my work and have a commitment to excellence in my profession. My word is my bond - if I give it, you can count on it. As God's Word says, I let "my yes be yes, and my no, be no. " I believe chivalry is very much alive, and enjoy treating a lady well, not in the temporal material sense, but in the higher spiritual sense that the Bible ordains, as a wonderful creation of God. Although I accept that physical appearances have some relevance, I'm not obsessed about a woman's looks, or her material goods. Nor do I want a woman who values those things in a man out of their proportion. All that matters is that the two people involved find each other attractive. Looks will fade away eventually, and what remains is the real person. And material things come and go. Anyway, as the saying goes about looks, they are in the eye of the beholder. I consider myself above average as a person, and I say this humbly. Developing oneself as a person is more important than the physical appearance. Enjoy deep conversations about various topics, especially Christian ones, classic cars, museums, coin/currency collecting, tennis to play & watch, sports in general, travel, movies, (especially from the 1930's-1950's, love TCM), and music from the 30's-60's. Another of my major interests are the poor, especially particular poor children. I have interest in microlending/financing, and I sponsored a girl from Honduras for 10 years through Compassion International. I will be sponsoring more children in the future. I hope to find a woman who has a heart for these kids, as opposed to animals. It has been disturbing to see many Christian women who express such passion for animals, but very few who indicate such intensity for deprived people in the world, particularly children. Children are far more important than animal life, they have eternal value, as Jesus died for them. If animals hold a high priority in your life, I'm not the man for you. That has no value in my economy, as those are temporal things. I'm basically a homebody type, from a small family, and go out about once a week or so. I like frequenting the fine local diners in our area, enjoying Italian, Mexican, American, and Chinese cuisines among others. As a believer, I feel every person is a precious creation of God. As such, I try my best to reply to everyone who takes time to write to me. I believe that is a basic courtesy that the Lord would expect us to give each other. So, I am contacting some of you ladies, and I hope you will feel free to contact me as well!
