I consider myself a dynamic person that continues to change hopefully for the better so my profile is never really current. That being said, at the moment I'm pretty happy doing indoor activities or watching movies inside and going out once in a while. I think success is not measured by money or possessions, success is the way you leave the world a bit better. Happiness on the other hand is moment by moment and I'm pretty happy but it would nice to feel less busy. Seeing people happy makes me happy and I like to make people laugh once in a while and having a good laugh myself. I haven't had much chance to meet many new people in my busy life (I've always had more than one thing going on at once). I'm hoping to at least make some new friends and would love to meet someone who has a big heart and soul and some smarts. It's what's inside that counts. It seems most girls are looking to be entertained more than anything else nowadays. Although I can't promise that I'll be an entertainer I would try to have you enjoy activities with me and I do like to spoil someone who's special to me. Two random facts about my family is that my parents have been married over 40 years and my younger sister is more than a decade apart from me. I'm not sure about online dating but if I run into someone extraordinary that would be just perfect. :)
OK, Cupid, I'm counting on you. If this doesn't work I just might have to try going with plan B - a Russian mail order bride...haha?
I'm a low key, grounded and worldly kind of guy, with a vivid imagination and an empathetic nature who's done a lot of traveling in the past. I'm conservative in some respects and liberal in others and I care intensely about social and economic issues, equality over liberty, and liberty over justice. I'm a thinker and a ponderer, a philosopher; my mind can't stop. And I tend to dream big. But I like to solve small problems too.
My life so far has earned me a lot of success, through a decade of hard sacrifice. It has been a long struggle and I'm sure the struggle will never end but that's what makes it worthwhile in the end. I'm open-minded, understated, easy-going, chill, soft-spoken and laidback but ambitious. I think it more important to lead a life morally rather than religiously and sometimes I'm too nice that it comes back to bite me. I'm not perfect though and do have my faults. I try to make up for them in other ways. ;)
I strive to go beyond the ordinary and seek the same.
I like to have all kinds of fun, go on trips and adventures, I love movies, nights in with friends, nights out and about, traveling, long scenic drives, great food, good talks, long walks, stargazing and people watching, working with my hands and just having good times. But nothing beats a good conversation on a quiet night.
I work on my fitness several times a week but still make time for my friends. Energy drinks and tea are my beer and wine. I can be quirky and awkward but I'm a good listener and I love learning.
I've traveled the world but I wouldn't mind doing it again. I've lived all over the country in several states and been to several countries on 3 different continents and a few islands. San Diego still feels like my real home with it's perfect year round weather. It could be that I lived there for over 20 years also. But now I'm back in California and looking for a new place to settle into.
I've raised a pet turtle, fishees, puppy, a couple cockatiels, and a talking parrot, and there's a story with each of them. I wish I could start a rescue center, but not just for animals. I love animals and hate one word answers.
I'm on a spiritual journey. I hope to find someone to enjoy the ride with me.
