I have a multitude of activities and I’m a reasonable intelligent
guy. Anything except boring.Even though I am a mature person, I do
tend to act very child like at times. Especially when I'm having
Friends have told me that I'm a person that's really into what I
do, but very easy going at the same time. Study and train in
Aikido. Scuba Instructor on the side. Ride motorcycles, love
convertibles. I’m very well traveled, but still a lot of places to
explore. Take photographs and video both above and under water.
Occasionally make movies with a small degree of success! An
adventure streak a mile wide. A hopeless romantic. I go out of my
way for my family and friends. Give money when I can and try to be
generous with everything. Nutty, dry, witty British humor is what I
find really funny. Can cook to save my life. I like a woman like
myself who's not afraid to try new things. She engages in some type
of physical activity. Wears jeans, but cleans up nicely for a night
on the town. Mostly, I want her to be her own person. Not to take
life too seriously and understand life balance. I would love a
woman who has depth and intelligence. It would be lovely if she's
into culture in all it's forms. i'm also happy to have female
friends. I joke that i'm in touch with my gay side ;)
I am adventuresome, funny, and playful

meeting new people. I'm mainly interested in local friends. you
know driving distance! I know enough folks around the world. nobody
is perfect, but everybody has something they're good at and can
