Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
*After moving my boat to a wonderful marina on the Palmetto side of the Manatee River I am now (April, May, and likely part of June) motoring throughout the United States; May mostly CA, UT, CO, AZ!*

I have known great love, ill-timed great potential - and great loss. I am looking for my second, and last, great love.

Fit and active, even allowing for a strong lazy streak. Some baggage but it fits under the seat in front - and if we didn't have some baggage we would have been standing still all of our lives, wouldn't we? Financially stable. Clever enough to pass for mature most of the time. Honest. Monogamous. Loyal. Devoted. Smart but not always wise - more trusting than might be wise. Sometimes oblivious.

Getting to a partnership is the goal. Touch and the journey rather than the ending are the reward. Very easy to talk with and I will be your biggest fan and supporter, without question or reserve. Talk is the best aphrodisiac. Candles and massage and exploration, devotion and always the quiet reassurance of absolute, unquestioned, and unquestioning love.

Yes, I like to hold hands, walk in the moonlight, ride a bike in the daylight, play golf, tennis, billiards, even bowl, or watch a black-and-white movie just to sit side-by-side and toss popcorn at each other's mouth, take hot showers alone or better together, just because it's fun. I have a low sense of modesty and touch is very, very important along with everything it leads to.

I get dirty with yard work, but don't like it - the yard work; I don't mind the dirt. I don't hunt and never learned to fish. I love the magnitude and peace of the water. Really, the key isn't what it is that you are doing with your special person, your partner, it is that you are still making and protecting the time to be together even in the face of the numbing crush of just everyday life. I lean toward traditional family roles though I have no trouble taking a more dominant role to honor and protect if that fits the dynamics of the relationship.

A real partnership should be interdependent, not dependent nor independent. Traditional partner roles are a starting point. A woman to treasure and protect should be modestly proud of feeling that she is attractive, in all ways, should speak her mind without being cruelly honest, and know when nurturing and compassion are the only medicine necessary. She must believe, and act, that love is forever and strengthened in understanding and forgiving the little things. She understands that "the finer things" in life don't require an American Express card. She is smart, with her own life, and yet has a gap that I can fill, just as she will fill mine.

And, we should agree that golf is the greatest game ever invented, Les Miserables is the greatest book ever written, and kissing is the most INTIMATE thing that two people can do! :-)

And, I am four years older than my public-facing age - at least chronologically if certainly not behaviorally. The brief introductions we have here are all about marketing so I hope you will forgive the nudge to you to stop by and read a bit. I am disgustingly healthy without being a 'nut' about it; and, I have fantastic 'age genes' in the family to rely on.

Stay well.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
At the beginning and at the end of the day it's all about people and how we know and interact with and work with and enjoy them.

Right now (09/14) I am pretty well transitioned away from full time work (open to some part-time contract work in my field), jettisoning a house, and deciding not where I want to spend my next years but with whom; after that, the where will take care of itself. I list Tampa/St. Pete as my location as that is the first (and if fortunate the last) area I want to explore.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
People - and knowing myself.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The quiet smile and empathy in my eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Les Miserables - we should agree right now that Victor Hugo's novel is the greatest work of literature in recorded history! The Bourne series; the books are better than the movies. Casablanca. Phantom of the Opera. Good Night and Good Luck. The Notebook (I know.) The Tappet Brothers; Prairie Home Companion. NCIS. Most music forms. The Beatles; Dave Mathews; Simon and Garfunkel; Michael Buble; Beyoncé; Christina Aguilera; Keith Urban; Blake Shelton; Taylor Swift; Rascal Flats; I'm currently in a reggae mood. Pretty basic and boring American food; seafood - lobster and shrimp, always better are the places where the locals go to eat without fanfare or publicity.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
First of all - there aren't! Well, maybe there's one, but it's not a thing and so deeply a part of me that I couldn't be without "it" - my curiosity.

Adaption is what life is all about. Things I'd like to have around. Internet access (1) and a computer (2); for my solace, though I don't play more than once every couple of months, golf equipment and a demanding course - though I'd trade for the right partner (3) and (4) ; someone whose smiles neither of us wants to live without (5); the respect of my three grown sons (6); and, something else I'm not thinking of right now - I'm not that good with rules and I like to keep options open (7). :-)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Way, WAY too eclectic to list. I am either a raging concrete-random or marginally recovering ADD. And, I like it that way. I am currently trying to reason whether there is anything really (!) more intimate that two people can do...than kissing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
A computer; a book; a movie; a dinner; a swimmer; (I know, it's strange construction.).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
What I'll admit to here (which is all that the question really asks people) is that I usually - but not always! - straighten the corners on the bills in my wallet.

And, I wonder why SO many people need to say that they "love to laugh" and why so many more either can't read this question or are somehow terrified to reveal anything?
