Honest and direct, whole-hearted, big joie d'vivre, quick to laugh, passionate about living consciously and well. Come from a family where academics trumped athletics - expressive, visually attuned folks, readers, creators, and 'do-ers' who take pride in what they've accomplished on any given day, who naturally gravitate to studios, libraries, and workshops. Clueless re: pop culture - don't own a tv, malls/franchises depress me. News comes from NPR and the NYT, valuing progressive thinking over conventional wisdom. Don't ski, play golf or tennis (a 30-year marriage taught me the best relationships leave room for non-shared pursuits) but thrive outdoors - kayaking, swimming, planting, biking/walking/hiking anywhere, city or country. A 'toucher' when conversing, a spontaneous smoocher, quick to show appreciation for kindness and emotional generosity, my partner will never lack for attention, affection, engaging conversation, goofy observations to laugh about. Financially set - the career's been good to me. Have two adult daughters who are critical thinkers, ethical, kind people, my primary focus at the moment.
Guys I find attractive live their values, are warm, compassionate men who laugh throughout the day, seeing the world and all of us humans therein both nuts AND amusing. Looking for someone who's naturally curious and quick witted, who's bumped around a bit, done some living and honest introspection, who can admit to his personal foibles, and keep moving.
Respectfully, have strong preferences for men 5'10 +, my same age (58-64). Winks/profiles without photos give me the jeebies. I draw the line at guys whose divorces are not yet final. If your religion and politics don't promote diversity, inclusion, a level playing field for all colors, genders, and sexual orientations, we're not suited. If you write a couple of thoughtful paragraphs, I will respond. Thanks!
