I’m obviously old school, and I’m proud of it. I also believe in chivalry. When it’s appropriate, I hold doors open for a woman and pull out her chair for her at the dinner table. In short I treat a lady like a lady. Without OVERdoing it.
More about me:
I believe in The Golden Rule. And try to live by it. Empathy goes a long way.
I have no patience for mendacity; I'm a straight-shooter, and I expect the same of you. I’d rather feel hurt by the truth than by a lie, anyday. No contest.
I am NOT into hip-hop, the lunatic fringe on any issue, motorcycles, body art, hunting or littering.
I AM into photography, casual bird watching, star gazing, playing the ukulele, casual art appreciation and conservation.
I like to be around polite, compassionate, soft-spoken, kind people.
I’m an outdoor enthusiast. All four seasons. Early spring and late fall are my least favorites; cold and wet are no fun. Otherwise, I want to be out there. Whether it’s feeling the sun warm my face, getting soaked to the bone during a summer shower or a blistery winter wind reddening my nose and cheeks; it’s all good. Here’s a motto I like: “There’s no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing.”
I love animals. But I’m not a big fan of domestic cats, although there can be exceptions. I’m a dog person at heart. All animals, especially pets, keep me humble about mankind's place in the world. I have an enduring respect for them all, even the lowly mosquito.
What else.... I prefer the Farmers' Market to the grocery store any day. I like traveling off the beaten path, not on a tourbus or staying at Holiday Inn. I like to take my time to soak it all in, never being in a hurry.
There's something else you should know. Right now I'm having mobility problems. When I go out I use a scooter.
I’d like to meet a woman who’s content with a quiet lifestyle and embraces Mother Nature as I do. She takes pride in her appearance and wears her warm heart on her sleeve. She also understands the enormous difference between someone "making" you happy and "being" happy with someone.
