I can be totally fulfilled experiencing life's adventures alone, but I feel that happiness isn't truly real unless shared. This is a borrowed concept from literature (and film) but it's essentially what is driving my quest for a partner. I'm seeking a friend to share with and rely on - and be there dependably for them as well. Mutual motivation for us to be better people, infividulally and together... always while having a laugh!
No games. No deception. No stress. Let's finish the 3rd act with excitement and write the 4th together in tandem.
I doubt there are many guys who can climb Holiday Valley on their bike in the morning, use their Albright Knox membership, then dance to some live music - all on the same day. Especially at 49. So if you think that number means I'm an old guy - just try and keep up with me.
I work hard to play hard. Maintain my house and garden. And save up for traveling the world. I'm looking for a semi-off kilter partner to share it all with.
I also try to stay grounded with meditation and periods of peacefulness. I'm proud of my vegetarianism and the non-violence that encompasses it.

Of course, Fridays make for great "date nights" too. Dinner out, a movie, or walk in the park... It's all good when your with the one you can't wait to see at the end of a long work week.
