I am looking for someone who is down to earth, intelligent, emotionally self aware, confident, and has a spark for life. You should also have a slight non-conformist streak and share a few of my interests. I would love both chemistry and connection--together they offer us true intimacy and fulfillment. I am only interested in a local, long term relationship and have used online dating once before to successfully find a kindred spirit.
You should be athletic and interested in hiking, bicycling, or some other active outdoor sport. In addition (and more importantly), we can go for walks on the beach, share gourmet home cooked dinners, toodle around Carmel, and share in many of your favorite activities. I especially enjoy cooking (the more ethnicities and techniques, the better), bio-intensive gardening, hiking/trekking/backpacking/mountaineering, bicycling, watching movies (especially Kubrik, Kurosawa, Coen Brothers, and Tarantino), and doing any sort of building project. I enjoy nature and "active" traveling to the boondocks of the world, which gives me an excuse to visit whatever big cities happen to be along the way. Hopefully you have some pastimes that I have not yet experienced.
On the physical side, I am 6'2", 197 pounds, have brown eyes, and have a whole head of black hair, which is graying. I am an early riser as I work out at 6:00 AM on weekdays.
If I've piqued your interest, I'd love to get an email from you.
