Consider me a straightforward person. But do not mistake being straightforward with being simple. I am quietly confident with a tendency to understate.
I have a willing spirit, an honest heart, and an eagerness to explore and experience.
Travelling, on and off the beaten path, adventures and what various cultures have to offer, and to lands where we don't speak the language. Finding those fabulous little out of the way places, where ever in the world they may be. This doesn't include package tours to the Caribbean (unless it's just for a weekend). And I have a lifelong desire to learn.
Me, in a nutshell.
Personality: Have been told I am respectful, sensitive, romantic, and very loyal. Innovative and an unconventional thinker, and can often string a couple of words together.
Culture: Live theatre, galleries, museums, Toronto symphony, an occasional concert or cultural events. Finding a nice restaurant or pub with character, an outdoor concert or just roaming about the city.
Outdoors: Canoeing, kayaking, boating and boat trips, sailing, cross country skiing and occasionally camping. The camping has become a little more civilized, but a wilderness camping or canoe/kayak trip might be interesting. Past sports include SCUBA, and horseback riding, both to high levels.
Sensuality: Respectful, I like women. Enjoy sensuality and giving.
Handyman: Can fix almost everything, renovating houses, and builder of dreams. Fixing things mechanical that is, found fixing relationships a little tougher.
Edit: Jan 2013 and a new year. Re-reading my profile, and it seems my technical writing style is coming through a little strong.
But really, what do all descriptions of likes, dislikes, dreams and desires really mean? They aren't a checklist, just descriptions of what has come before. What really matters, is where we want to go, what we want to do together, and talking about it.
An observation about communications. Women sometimes assume when they communicate through words or gestures, the meaning or intent is obvious. It may be obvious to you...... Men, as members of the right brained fraternity (some may say, small brained), we often need communication that is a little less subtle. And occasionally delivered with a little more impact. A club swung with sufficient velocity is often appropriate to embed thoughts . ;) I can laugh at myself too.
