Quick Question: Got "H"? I do... I'm looking for a woman who also has it. What's "H"? Please keep reading...
If you are here about the position I have open please have a seat, make yourself comfortable, grab a glass of wine if you like, and read this informative description on the position.
I am looking for my best friend and lover all wrapped up in a wonderfully attractive package. The woman I am looking for should be pretty to me... we all have our own definition of attractive, and I hope I don't come across rudely, but I have to be physically attracted to you or it simply will not work. Period. Same goes for you. If you don't find me physically attractive, you may as well move on.
I don't care for overweight women. Some guys like that... I happen to not be one of them. A little extra around the middle is okay.... you do not have to have a flat stomach... I have a little extra around the middle too... but I'm working on it.
I am attracted to a nice set of legs and a rear end to match...
I like tall women with long lean legs. I also like short proportionate women, and every one in-between. Say 5'-0" to 5'-10".
A nice figure is preferred, but I know we are getting older; I am not looking for a 25 year old woman. So please do not think I am looking for perfection. Lord knows I am not 30 any more.
Please be athletic... I want you to be able to hike with me if you are into that sort of thing. I do however think I am pretty much done with backpacking... I can see us climbing a mountain, then descending to a nice B&B or Inn with a great outdoor hot tub and a nice bottle of wine.
If the above has offended anyone, I do apologize. But this is what I am looking for, and hope someone who fits what I am looking for is looking for someone like me.
I am one of the good guys... just ask me. I think I have a great sense of humor, and joke around just about all of the time. I know how to be serious, and have done it a few times so I know I can be serious when needed.
I am most always happy; I do admit to being lonely at times, but thats life and one needs to accept it. I am often out deep in the woods on my own, so I am quite used to it. It would be nice to come home to someone some day. I have faith that day will come.
I left the semi-corporate world back about 5-6 years ago and am now in the process of starting a photography business. I would be happy to work for you if you would like photographs for your profile.
I don't like to do indoor set-piece shoots, rather I much prefer going outside, working with the natural light and get you doing something fun, giving you genuine smiles... eventually you forget there is a camera in my hand. However if you are comfortable in front of a camera and want to do an indoor shoot, then thats fine. I have some great lighting to work with.
-Photographing people in motion
-Woodworking; I am an artist and turn what I call "Hand Crafted Non-functional Artistic Wooden Bowls and Vessels"
Take a look at my photo albums... I made a short photo essay taking a Sugar Maple Vessel from the source log all the way thru to the finished product.
-The really big lens on my camera... people are always commenting. I try to tell them size does not matter... I know... be serious. I will try.
-I often look like I just walked out of the deep woods... because I usually have.
Tom Clancy's Fiction novels
Classic Rock, Classical (the real classics... not the new crap that is being written, which is just a bunch of disjointed noise without any harmonious continuation) THE BLUES!!!, New Country.
"Blazing Saddles", "Caddy Shack", "Blues Brothers", "The Princes Bride", "Finding Nemo", yes... a kids movie... "The Emperors New Groove" was pretty funny too. I could really list some hilarious kid movies... they really make these with humor on two levels... and hey, I have an 11 year old... the timing was just right that I think I saw "Finding Nemo" about 75 times in a very short span of time. I'm a fun dad... what can I say?
I am a carnivore... meat and potatoes... but believe it or not, Broccoli is my favorite food if cooked correctly... I make it a few different ways and like to use it in many of my more creative dishes. I love to cook... and I can't wait to make a beef stew... a very basic recipe, but oh so good with a loaf of French bread to dip... yum!
2) My Camera Gear
3) A sweet woman by my side (though am doing without at the present time; care to help me)?
4) My woodworking equipment and all of my tools.
5) My touring kayaks.
6) A good pair of hiking boots and poles... and a sturdy pack... okay... all of my hiking gear.

- When I am involved with a woman, I do tend to think about her a good deal. Don't you think about your partner???
***Please read all of this for your own information***
I have HSV2 (Genital Herpes) and HSV1 (Commonly referred to as a cold sore), though I have never had one of those.
A full 25% of the population have one or both of these! Please note that statistics show that of this 25%, 90% don't know they are infected!! Some of you reading this now and getting ready to click to the next profile have HSV, but you don't know it.
Everyone should get their blood tested for HSV1 & HSV2 Antibodies!!!
Having HSV is not really that big a deal... except when you are in my situation and have to tell others you have it. It seriously is just an occasional nuisance, until something happens to the relationship and you are single once again. Society as a whole shuns HSV and treats you as a leper. So unless you already have it, you probably want to say hello and good luck, or maybe you could use a friend. I'm a great guy, but I come with a price. But if you are interested in me... go get tested... You really should anyway.
***Please pay special attention to this section***
There is no way to protect yourself from contracting HSV. Contrary to many informational sites, CONDOMS DO NOT PROTECT YOU FROM CONTRACTING HSV, because they do not cover everything... and without getting too graphic, think about what parts of you women come into contact upon deep penetration... there is NO protection there.
I have heard from people that doctors do not test for Herpes when asked for a full STD panel check. Supposedly the reason, and I have no data to back this up, is that since so many people have HSV, the docs don't want to have to deal with the reactions when they tell people the "bad news". I do NOT wish to bad mouth doctors here... just relaying what I have been told from the HSV community. So please, if you are going to be tested, and you all should, ask specifically to be tested for HSV1 & HSV2. And be ready for the results... you may have a big surprise... remember 1 in 4 have it... of that 25%, a full 90% don't know!
There is no way to look at someone and be able to tell if they have HSV. There is no way to protect yourself short of going in together with a person you plan on having sex with and getting tested... then awaiting the results.
Note; there is a period, somewhere around 4-6 weeks that needs to pass before the antibodies are present.
Should you have any questions on this subject, please feel free to contact me; I would be honored to help.
I wish you luck in finding an awesome partner., and having safe sex!
Kissing and caressing are the biggest turn ons for me... and I love big long hugs. I love to give and receive sensual massages, however I can also work out those knots in your back or your thigh should that be needed. I like to give foot massages. I like to take my time and make sure I have not left out any area.
I am very honest and open. This profile should be proof enough of that. I have nothing to hide and I never will. You may ask me any question, on any subject, and I will give you the truthful answer, even if it is something I don't think you will want to hear.
I think the most important attribute for keeping a relationship going is open and flowing COMMUNICATION. In every aspect of a relationship, you need to communicate; from a minor issue of disagreement, to time together in the bedroom (or on the kitchen counter, or wherever you are when the moment strikes).
There should never be shouting in anger about some sort of disagreement... rather you need to sit down and talk like the adults we are supposed to be. Listen to each other and come to a compromise. It can not be both persons way... and it should not always be the same persons way... actually, I believe coming to a compromise, if at all possible is the best solution.
The second most important aspect of a relationship I believe is Passion. Passion in relatively equal amounts from you and your partner. If one is very passionate and the other is not, the relationship is doomed from the start.
I believe it is drastically important that we kiss in a similar fashion... you women know what I am talking about. When I kiss a woman who is a good kisser, I simply want to melt right into her. Then there are times when I feel like I am being gagged and she is trying to rip my face off... There may be times for things like that... maybe, but passionate, sweet and delicious melt in your mouth kisses that go on forever are where its at. I also believe it tells of the physical compatibility... but I'll leave that right there.
I have spoken a lot about the physical; please know that I believe we need to have the physical, mental and emotional attachments to make a relationship work. I believe it is the initial infatuation and strong physical attraction that holds two people together to allow the mental and emotional components to take hold. The moment they do... the three combine and skyrocket to unimaginable heights.
I am a nature photographer. I do other types of photography, but I specialize in birds and the natural world around us. This fall I am going to be directing my lenses at waterfalls. I hiked up the Falling Waters Trail on Little Haystack Mountain on 10-04-13 to shoot a few of the falls there. I have posted a couple in one of my galleries here. Never thought to go out into the stream for a shot. Oh well, maybe I will at one of this weeks shoots.

I am a father; my most important position. My son Aden is 10 years old. His mother and I share custody 50/50. He is a very nice, sweet kid, and one hell of an athlete. He is quite the soccer player, and also an awesome ski racer. He races for one of the local mountain teams.
His sporting events take up a lot of time, so hopefully you won't mind joining me on occasion. I do try to get to all of his competitions, but realize that there will be times we want to go away on my off weekends; Aden realizes this as well.
I hope you will continue to read on... would you like some more wine?
