In a nutshell: Married for 15 years, divorced for 7. One LTR since that ended due to the economy and her having to take an out of town job. I'm available, open to anything, and well adjusted/sane (your mileage may vary). Physically: I'm fairly fit and bike when I can (downhill and cross country). I'm 5'10.75" and 187lbs, and am like hugging a slightly padded oak tree. And if you need a reason to write, here's 15 reasons to date a cyclist:
Though I've bred quarter horses and my mount was a stallion, I am equally at ease hosting a dinner party, or enjoying the arts. I don't speak Italian, but Pagliacci has moved me to tears. Much like dark beer, some like me immediately. To others, I'm an acquired taste (though life is short and some would say I tend to expedite that process). That being said, there's nothing metro about me. I'm a big fan of creature comforts over snobbery. I appreciate intelligent or confident woman, but happy, fun, or nice get equally high marks with me. Some say I have eclectic tastes in friends, but warmth and genuineness seems to be a common trait. A sense of humor and adventure isn't mandatory, but I sure think it's helpful.
What I'm Looking For:
Do you enjoy simple pleasures such as grilled steak (or tofu, seitan, veggies, vegan sausage, etc.) , dark beer, red wine, or kissing? Perhaps you have a passion for Asian, Mexican, or Italian cuisines? Enjoyment of home cooked meals, including but not limited to: gumbo, jambalaya, Vietnamese food, steaks, handmade pizzas? Do you like chocolate? Preference given to those that are sweet, genuine, and are willing to take their time with the things that matter. Ability to perform slightly demanding tasks outdoors or in preferred. Ability to laugh at life or oneself also preferred.
Care to join me for a run, bike or hike, or perhaps some fun indoor activities? Or maybe a glass of wine and some conversation would be more your speed? I am passionate about food and always enjoy sharing a meal and some conversation.
