My life has been a journey of adventure and learning and non-greedy ambition... involving variable degrees of workaholism and wanderlust... often at the same time. (Typical Sagittarius). I have been self-employed as a mad scientist (software dev) and as a creative genius (photo/film/music) for most of my career. Meaning both sides of my brain are firing at high volume day and night... yep... I'm a handful! I am also a great cook, a romantic and chivalrous gentleman, a terrible smartass and an absolute cuddle monster.
The 'jobs' I have had have included film production, advertising, corporate technology training... when I was a kid: home construction, waiting tables, working retail, making ice cream... like I said... making it up as I go. I grew up in PA and have lived everywhere else in the country since then.
I kindof missed my 30s because I was helping a family member who was ill... I wasn't married when that ordeal started, and barely dated since then. I guess I'm feeling whole again and on track and like I'm ready to fall in love and really start having a life that seemed rather out of my grasp before. It's been a long time... I've gotten used to being solo... so... it's going to take someone who can really knock my socks off with humor and intellect and also prove that she'll take as good a care of me as I will take care of her.
Anyway... nowadays my disposition is almost always upbeat and positive on the outside, and I always been considered a 'force of nature.' Those who know me well, know that I am always there when they need a friend. My best friends have been in my life for over twenty years. I've lived in Miami before... long time ago. Giving it another try. Thought I might need to go back to the West Coast for work. So... there's that to add to the challenge.
In my wallet (among other things) are my Rescue Diver card, my First Aid Certified card, my SAG card, my AAA card, my REI card, my National Parks Pass... and a few foreign bills to remind me not to let my passport collect dust.
Hoping to find someone who either gives me inspiration to keep slugging it out here in the real world or maybe who wants to run away with me and run a dive shop in the islands. I am a knight in shining armor. (maybe a bit dinged, but I polish it regularly with random acts of kindness, chivalry and generosity). BUT... I am NOT looking for a damsel in distress. I've helped many of those already and wound up still single. (My sister called it a broken wing syndrome... but I'm done with that). I am looking for a Lady Knight to ride beside me.
Yes... I am looking for a relationship and no I don't have any problem meeting women... just on here to see what's up and who is out there... not looking to leap into anything or have random hookups. I've had a few 'first dates' lately... with really great women who were just in completely different life-situations than me... so... maybe this site can help with some of the math involved in wanting a second date with someone. (and vice-versa, of course... hell, I already know what a handful I am, it's only fair to give you some warning. ha!)
