Introducing: The Gentleman

My persona has a boring name: The Gentleman. On the surface, I'm a dull archetype: I'm the guy women actually want to introduce to their parents. I'm responsible, considerate, and have my shit together. I've lead a relatively unique life, and engage in interesting activities. I'm a stable, soothing presence. I pay attention. Friends and former flames alike give me glowing reviews. Babies love me, and notoriously fickle pets show me affection within minutes of meeting me. I'm not even making this up.

But underneath my principled and personable exterior lurks an approach to dating that's racier than you might expect. I freely confess that my OKC profile description describes me to the letter. I've been around the block a few times. What's that?  Okay, fine: several times. Over the last half-decade or so, I've finally lived long enough in one place to buckle down and get serious about meeting a special someone.  It's true -- I'm looking for a companion to help smooth out the rough edges of life, etc etc. You probably already figured as much.

As I seek her out, I'll have as much fun as I can...in an honest and safe manner, of course. Whether these dates lead to lasting relationships or not, there are two important rules: 1) No regrets; and 2) No hard feelings (on either side). A true gentleman always holds his conduct to this standard.
