48, Thunder Bay, CA
I am looking for someone that will complement each other well. Looks and personality, lifestyle and habits all matter. Income, usually matters, practically, because it is linked to personal culture and values. I think a certain amount of time spent each day is vital for a relationship. Also, a couple should share some strong elements in common. Race is usually very important, and also ideas and beliefs. I have found that practically there is a strong connection here. Io sono italiano e io parlo, scrivo e capisco italiano. Io piace italiano cinema e musica.
I would say I am looking for a woman who enjoys cooking and if she works, then the only other time we would spend together as quality time would be leisure. Ideally and practically, a husband and wife would own a business together where they interact together for a time throughout the day; or, that they're directed goals are linked by their work life and way-of-life somehow, through the same business initiative. But the hands-on approach is best.
I hold the view that 'a family that prays together, stays together.' There have been various Protestant 'plays' on this theme as a rebel variation such as 'a family that works together, stays together', and I hold that true as well, regardless of its original etymology. They both, really, are rooted in conservative mainstream Roman Catholic doctrine and truth.
Again, I believe that a couple should share something in common. I'm Italian. And the only thing I would really object to the most would be sharing the same body parts. I love to cook, and who I eat with at my table is almost a personally sacred time. I hold the very same instinct with whom I share a drink with, which, is rare. I don't like getting drunk but cook with alcohol all the time. I play chitarra flamenco e italiano. I draw, love poetry in my private world, and love camping, canoeing, baseball, hockey and the outdoors. As far as my appearance is, I would say I look NW Sicilian, Caucasian and noticeably European and what I choose to wear often immediately makes me suspect of Italian ancestry. I have conservative views of women, but my ideals in their beauty can intoxicate my judgments for them.
