Fountains on the Promenade
I really love dogs, but I'm not too thrilled about weasels. So, I guess I'd never date a politician. That being said, I'm opening the door to everyone else tired of the usual rodents who would really like to establish a sane, refreshing rapport which would lead to something meaningful. I think you and I can do better, and it's high time to change the formula.
I never realized when I was much younger how extremely difficult the whole relationship process would become when I acquired a few gray hairs. The good thing about all this is that although all my plumbing still works (and quite admirably, I might add), I have also attained a certain wisdom through experience. What I find most essential and important now more than ever is how valuable is a devoted heart, an affectionate character and a loving, romantic nature. Now, I have always been one for all the above, but finding these remarkable qualities in a potential partner have become, unfortunately, more and more elusive as the years go on. The bars just don't cut it, and it's amazing how cliquish social clubs can be. So, here is my option on ChicagoPride.
I'm a GWM, 46, 5'11, 180,drug/disease free and a near northside Chicagoan. I enjoy the arts, exploring new and exotic restaurants and am musically diverse. I like shopping down Michigan Avenue, so I'll be happy to pick up any shirts for you if you're not of a like mind.
Drama does not exist in my vocabulary. There's far too much of it in our daily lives. I'd like to find someone who likes to think that being in a relationship, although having it's occasional up and downs, can essentially be an oasis from the craziness of the world -- a place where my partner and I can be ourselves, relax and enjoy each other. We would be each other's best friend, confidant, lover, and, on occasion, Mother Theresa. Well, maybe not that far, but you get the idea.
If you like to kiss and cuddle, I'm your teddy bear. If you enjoy a goofy, fun sense of humor, I'll keep you roaring. If you crave serenity and gentleness, I'm your safe haven. If you seek stability, sanity and substance in your life, I'll bring comfort and contentment. If you like challenges and reaching for goals, I'll be your cheerleader. If you desire to be loved, appreciated and celebrated for who you are, you will never find a more compassionate, sincere heart more willing and able to do so.
Now, that's not to say I am without my faults! Lord knows, I have been known to eat one too many bags of potato chips, but I think you know where I'm coming from. And anyone who is touched even remotely by my words is invited to at least respond and reach out. It doesn't matter whether you are located here in Chicago or the suburbs or clear across the globe. If two people are meant to be together, they will find a way.
One of the greatest joys in life is to know one is loved and appreciated for who he is. So often in the search to find a companion we become frustrated because, more often than not, we realize that what we are really trying to find is, indeed, a rare yet wonderful thing. It's kinda like winning the lottery. Hopefully one really great guy out there, and myself, can end the relentless search once and for all and find something priceless. It can happen anywhere.
I'm a GWM, average build and height, drug/disease free, Bucktown resident. I consider myself fun-loving, deeply romantic in a very traditional sense, nurturing, affectionate and possess a rather warped sense of humor. There is a true compassionate side to me, and I genuinely care about others.
I enjoy film, theatre, exploring new and exotic restaurants, travel, cultural events, museums and art galleries.
I desire to be my man's oasis when the world becomes maddening; his best friend when he needs a shoulder and his lover when passion needs to be expressed and celebrated.
Please accept this sincere invitation to love.
Very much attracted to masculine men who possess great sensitivity, warmth and depth of character. A wonderful sense of humor along with a romantic, protective nature are ideal.
Ego trips; loud and obnoxious behavior; feminine affectations; rudeness and inconsideration.
