As for my religious beliefs ... I was a baptized and confirmed Catholic in my youth and attended Catholic elementary school for a few years. I turned my back on the Catholic church while in high school and never looked back. My ex wife is Lutheran and we did attend a Lutheran church while we were married, but I never became a believer. I was introduced to Buddhist philosophy in 2012. I have found that mediation and talks by Buddhist monastics are able to fill my spiritual needs better than any Judeo-Christian teachings. If you think I am godless heathen who will burn in hell, well you have a nice day, too. You can stop reading right here.
I've done some domestic and international traveling with a previous employer. It has satisfied my needs to explore the world and I have no longings to do any more traveling. Some day or weekend getaways to nearby areas with the right person are a possibility. If you're looking for someone to share an adventure of checking out the shops in small villages in Spain, I am not your guy.
As for the type of woman I am looking for ... In the words of Fritz Perls, "I do my thing and you do your thing. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I. And if by chance we find each other, it's beautiful. If not, it can't be helped." I am not here to find a wife, but am open to the possibility that a friendship I find here or somewhere else could turn into a long term partnership.
