I'm usually (not always) a chronic optimist and believe that most people are good. That belief has gotten me burned a few times, but that is how I choose to be. I have strong feelings and opinions, but enjoy hearing and learning from different views and perspectives. I do have a strong environmental ethic, believe in giving those who are down a hand up and am somewhat uncompromising about respect for all kinds of people and animals.
I enjoy jazz, fusion, rock, punk, blues, classical and even a little country & rap - any kind of music with energy, passion & honesty and love live performances. I like to try new experiences and enjoy exploring. My favorite things to do are kayaking, bike riding or hiking someplace I haven't been before. I also enjoy gardening, and dancing.
I love exotic food including Thai, Caribbean, Asian, Mexican, African, Middle Eastern and enjoy trying to cook them - sometimes successfully! Especially if I have good partner assisting me with music playing while drinking red wine. Dining out at a unique hole in the wall is fun too. Watching a movie at home occasionally is good too, although I don't watch tv & stay current by reading internet news.
I also enjoy and crave adventure - I dream of zip lining in a tropical rainforest, sailing in the Caribbean, and diving the Great Barrier Reef and learning from different cultures.
I am looking for a good, affectionate man who loves to be active outside - with me and often! Someone who enjoys taking care of me and letting me take care of him. An intelligent, compassionate & communicative man who is also relaxed and playful. You're not in search of perfection, are an overall positive person and don't sweat the small stuff - and almost everything is small stuff! You value people, experiences and quality of life. A warped sense of humor is probably a must, along with an appreciation of smart ass humor and light banter mixed with genuine affection.
There are some things I would like us to share, but would also appreciate some points of difference, and would appreciate a man to introduce me to new sources of fun and horizon widening. I have my faults, and so do you but we would still like and enjoy each other,
I have a great life, but would like a good man to be active outdoors with, share laughs, adventures, friendship and hopefully more,
