I enjoy a variety of quality experiences, travel very well and make friends wherever I go. I've traveled the world for 30 years, see myself as an international citizen - tend to look at the bigger picture.
Quality of life is important to me - close relationships, education, the arts, a healthy lifestyle, like to be challenged and love communicating with intelligent people. My daughter has me 'leaning' vegetarian... I have been known to cook for myself and I love experiencing new tastes. I was married for 24 years to a (good) woman who could not cook, so I absolutely appreciate/love home cooked meals. I even watch cooking shows!? I joined a gym and will be getting my 'sexy' back... 6 pack target date: June, 2015. I want my V shape back!
Am well educated (two Engineering Degrees), have a good personality, emotionally healthy, have many tools and know how to use them. There are VERY few things I do not understand or cannot 'fix'. My 'job' was to invent/make machines used in the production of electronics.
I have a sense of humor (even if it's laughing at myself).
I have two fantastic children who are the light of my life and raised my son as a single parent.
I understand the five languages of love. MY language is: acts of service closely followed by touch. I'm clean and mostly thoughtful (smile) and even put the toilet seat down and pick up after myself and focus on self improvement. I simply cannot just 'exist'. I find it difficult to be around people without a sense of direction or purpose in life. My EX (wife, 24 yrs) said: "You are a tough act to follow."
I enlisted the help of a past girlfriend (9yrs) wrote this about me:
"Good listener, skilled lover, sexy body, compassionate heart, devoted father, attentive lover, goes out of his way to help others, wonderful sense of humor, appreciates my femininity, appreciates my talents, playful teaser, soooo cute, seductively handsome, never shows rage in anger, deeply sensitive, finds pleasure in sunsets, willing to talk things out, appreciative of my intelligence, complex intelligent mind, curiosity for learning new things, creative thinker, accepts me for who I am, tender lover, admits if he's been wrong, seeks to understand me"
I have made a great lifelong effort to learn how to have all aspects of a great relationship. I am empathetic, considerate, confident and well past feeling like I have to prove myself to anyone. I have been characterized as an Alpha Male and am not intimidated by strong women. I have the "disease to please" but am working on a recovery.
I get endorphins flowing when learning new things. I love history, technology, science, psychology, travel and other similar topics. I stay current with world events. Not much of a sports fan.
I know that foreplay is 24/7 and have been trained in Tantra and been practicing it for decades. I realize that the brain is the MOST important sexual organ we have.
I have made a great lifelong effort to learn how to have all aspects of a great relationship. I am empathetic and considerate. I am also confident and well past feeling like I have to prove myself to anyone.
I tend to be a brainiac type, love all things technological and find most everything interesting in one way or another. Always have an audio book in play, exercise fairly regularly.
I'm semi-retired and I spend most days trading stock futures (ES).
Currently taking swing dance lessons. Belong to a few meetup groups (sailing, etc.) Continue to practice and learn the finer aspects of cooking. Can feed myself and one or two others.
We 'are' who we surround ourselves with.
A friend is a gift we give ourselves, what kind of gift will you give yourself?
We always move in the direction of our most dominate thoughts.
Not compatible with extremists of any persuasion.
Socially liberal, fiscally conservative. Centrist
