I am what you make me. I am I hope, kind, thoughtful and considerate but I do not tolerate fools or shallow minded people. What you see is real. I have no mask behind which I hide although I have much to protect. I crave romance in my life and think that without it no man can be whole as indeed no man is whole without his other half. Romance make's the man. Life without romance is like a black and white photograph, detailed and in focus but without warmth or meaning. With romance life is full of color vibrant and alive. I consider that two people who respect each other live long and happy lives together and can make romance each and single every day. I have friends I consider to be honest kind and gentle people. I would hope one day someone will see those qualities in my eyes because I value them above all others.
