Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The woman I am looking for is curious about the world around her.
She can joke around with someone and not easily be offended. Works
hard to better herself in life. She is very active and feels young
at heart. She can SPELL! Or can joke about her spelling. She is
generally happy and she loves family and friends. The rest is all
UPDATE: 03/03/15 I was offline for several months...two things has
happened 1) Had some serious medical issues which I am now very
much on the mend from surgery and in great health now 2) thought
had found someone who I was interested in...and she was interested
in me...please don't be someone your not...let's just leave it at
A few things you should know about me before going out on a first
date – I cried like a baby twice when I watched “The Notebook” for
the tenth time, I enjoy meeting the most unusual people, I think
cowboy boots and black button up Levi’s could be a fashion
statement, I usually judge people in the first twenty minutes after
meeting them, I like to play in the snow but when I get cold I'm
ready to go, wear my heart high on my sleeve some days, fish too
much, work on my vehicles in the driveway, MPA from Evergreen
(TESC), yes I'm a greener, I was raised on a ranch/farm in Oklahoma
(I'm still an older rodeo cowboy in heart), I write too much in my
profile because I have nothing to hide… and finally the BIG one…I
wish I didn't spend so much time looking for a date with a simple
girl who wants to share some quality time with a nice intelligent
guy like me.
One quote from "Rainer Maria Rilke" best sums it up for me..."For
one human being to love another that is perhaps the most difficult
of our tasks; the ultimate, the last test and proof; the work for
which all other work is but preparation."
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work, I am having fun, have a home, have two small businesses and
living fairly comfy at this stage of my life...I can always drive
to Portland or Seattle for excitement and/or dating activities.
Lived and worked in Olympia for 18 years and recently worked in
Vancouver for four years and I still visit a multitude of close
friends quite often. My work is in the health education field,
mostly contract work for different state and tribal agencies
throughout the Pacific Northwest. I continue to volunteer with a
youth organization teaching some craft classes with foster care
youth when I find time. I support any organization that works with
kids. Our children are our future. I am a very humble person who is
lucky to have such a wonderful and an even fuller life with
wonderful friends and a large local native and spiritual family
with a multitude of things to do over the course of the year.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I make and play indigenous instruments out of local scrap pieces of
Red Cedar, salvaged or recycled wood. I do record indigenous music
and if you’re lucky I will entice you playing one of my many

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I do have very long hair and some women are very prejudice about my
longer hair. The length of the hair doesn't make or break me as a
man. Anyway physical attraction is part of who we are on the
outside, sad that some people don't take the time to find out who I
really am on the inside...I do participate in Native American
Ceremonies where I am not allowed to cut my hair...Creator and my
spirituality is extremely important to me. So if long hair is a
deal breaker then I am not for you

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favorite "Day Tripper" by Fabio Moon, which I highly recommend,
I can't get enough of it. It is in Comic form which is different
but I really like how everything comes together...I think it is an
awesome book about life and everyone can relate to many of the
different chapters of life...I really love the deep meaning and can
relate to many different spiritual aspects of the book. At this
time I am reading "thirteen moons" by Charles Frazier, it is a book
about the Cherokee. I just bought the book "Manopause: Guide to
Surviving His Changing Life" by Lisa Friedman Bloch, Kathy Kirtland
Silverman...it was highly recommended by a woman friend of
mine...looking forward to reading it.
Movies I liked...City of Angels, Meet Joe Black, Legends of the
Fall, The Matrix Trilogy, Godfather Trilogy, Lord of the Rings
Trilogy...Recently saw the Hobbit, Lincoln and Skyfall...
I do like to attend theater ("Phantom of the Opera" is my
I like most music, my exception is Hard Core RAP that degrades
women in the lyrics, or speaks of crime and killing. I've been a Dj
playing for a wide age and diverse crowd for special events and
conventions for the past 25 years up and down the West Coast...but
I am retiring from the business this year. Being from the classic
rock era I love most classic rock...While growing up in Oklahoma
and my family listened to country music.
Love to cook southern food, I do know how to grill and BBQ but what

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Love for Life
My old beat up 4x4 Truck (love wondering off the path)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
At this time in life...HAPPINESS and wondering if I will ever find
TRUE LOVE again. Life's losses always reminds me, you better hold
tightly or speak often to the ones you love the most, you never
know what will happen or if this will be the last time you embrace
them...tomorrow is never a given, it's a gift.
The importance of my family, especially being an example for my 3
children and now 3 grandchildren... Always thinking about my part
on earth and how to make the world a better place for my
grandchildren. If I am really lucky, put a smile on someone's face
that is struggling with life or a lot worse off today than
"To laugh often and love much... to appreciate beauty, to find the
best in others, to give one's self...this is to have

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hoping someone on Friday has a better idea then I do...spending
time with someone special, dancing is cool. Did I mention I am
spontaneous at times, I have an open schedule a majority of the
week, (except Tues,Wed and Thurs), so it is easy to find time to do
things in a minutes notice.
I truly miss watching a movie with someone special; sitting close,
holding hands, cuddle...more if applicably agreed too, what a start
to a great week-end...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Here goes...I have a family nickname I am embarrassed for others to
find out about.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You know what you want in life and not afraid to express what you
need. You like what you read in my profile, as crazy as it seems.
You're not afraid of a sexy, taller mature part Native American man
with longer hair. You know how to laugh with me, not at me. You
want a man in your life who doesn't know everything but
intelligent, educated and still wanting to learn more about
IMPORTANT, If your older then me and not very physically active in
your life or you make me feel old while were together...I'm not an
old man just because I'm over 50 and a grandfather...I work hard
and play even harder.
