I am Looking for new friends. That's always the first step and then we'll see what happens from there. I'm a very open and honest man that has done and gave so much this 1st half of my life. So many great experiences of the past, yet so many more wonderful things ahead with many new ventures to explore just needing you to join me. I have no idea what is ahead, but would love to share the adventures with someone special in my life. Maybe we can follow the road together for a while and help each other out with the directions we all need to take. Maybe if we're both very lucky it's forever with a special soul mate from the past! I know my core values love, hope, integrity and compassion being some of the highest, yet I'm quite open to ideas of others and many new adventures. I am a native Adirondack boy. I grew up an Army brat so I've lived in Alaska, Virginia, Germany, the Netherlands, New Orleans, and Tennessee but I spent most of my childhood summers in the Adirondacks. Also, i have a son(cody) who is currently living with my sister. I am a structural engineer and entrepreneur, vacillating between technology and food. I am, looking for someone ready to commit to exploring the potential for a long term relationship. I am an old fashioned guy in a new fangled world. I truly believe that one can not give to a relationship without understanding where they are in life. Energy, life, passion, romance and masculism are what I find to be important and very attractive. So, don't be shy... ultimately, the chemistry and biology between a man and another man is not a choice; it just happens. But writing, and a phone call, and perhaps a cup of coffee or a glass of wine to see if that chemistry sparks... is a choice.
