Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello and thank you for taking the time to view my profile.
After a three year partner type relationship has ended, I am
seeking a new relationship with a woman. When a person comes along
that I find interesting and I want to spend time with, I am
energized to explore the possibilities.
Am 63 years old, considered attractive by those who know me, have a
good sense of humor that often runs dry. Would love to cultivate a
friendship and companionship. Beyond this will wait.
I am a spiritual person with a good set of moral principles as well
as boundaries. My life experiences have taught me compassion,
empathy, acceptance and understanding of people and situations
entirely different than my own. I am left of the bubble so to speak
in the way I live as well as in the politics I believe in.
My ideal match could be tall or small, have long or short hair. If
she were to have red hair that would be a plus, however it
certainly is not required. She is confident, projects a positive
and accepting attitude towards others. She believes in the goodness
of mankind, animals, and the earth and shows respect for all by her
actions and words. She is liberal, unconventional, and does not
settle for the status quo or buckle under to the expectations of
"those people". She may still display some defiance and be a bit of
a rebel. As a result of all of this, she will no doubt have
sparkling inviting eyes, with an engaging and friendly smile.
The thing that I appreciate most in a partner is her ability to
listen - without trying to change, fix or judge. Unconditional
love. Respect. Trust. Intimacy. Kind Heart. Kind Person. Good
Values. Good Morals. Reliable. Nurturing. Passionate.
I am grateful for the many lessons learned from so many people I
have met, know and loved in my life journey so far. Am thankful,
grateful for enlightenment shared with me by my Mysterious Creator,
dear friends, precious earth creatures, water, trees, wild flowers,
meadows, valleys, rolling hills, mountains; sunsets, sunrises,
thunderstorms; Gracie the Cat's touch on my face in the morning;
scent of citrus blossoms; Bora Bora; Paris.
I think chemistry is an important component of a healthy
relationship. Have experienced an immediate attraction to a woman
through eye contact and conversation before, however I know there
is so much more to a healthy, happy and mutually satisfying
relationship. Real intimacy (mind-body-soul) takes time to mature
and blossom fully. I believe in melding of mind and soul intimacy
before exploring the ultimate physical bond between man and woman.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In my free time, I enjoy going out to dinner, the movies, concerts
, and taking in theater performances. Enjoy visiting wineries and
wine tasting, art galleries, museums, antique stores, and flea
markets. I work out at the gym a couple of times a week, play golf
and ride bikes occasionally, downhill or cross-county ski (just in
the winter when there is snow), and fish. I like walking the dog or
taking with and going for a Sunday drive or to the Farmers Market.
At home I cook, enjoy a glass of wine, garden, enjoy the warmth of
a crackling fire with a movie, book. Vacation and weekend get-aways
to Oregon Coast, Sedona, Wine-tasting Events, Mountain Cabin, Cabo
San Lucas, Paris . . .
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking and Creating in the Kitchen. Intimate Conversation, leaving
"surface conversation" for others to enjoy. Massage - I like to use
my hands for full body, foot and leg - I actually have a massage
table. Listening. I like to use hand tools for all the project
possibilities a 30's house has to offer. Desktop publishing,
photography and photo shop like software. Drafting, design for
landscape, and irrigation design for residential and commercial,
golf, and agriculture. Marketing, sales, management and

Hmmm . . . don't really think about that much. I guess that I may
still be somewhat attractive, though my hair is very thin on top.
Perhaps after talking with me for bit, they might notice that I
will often see something that I find funny in just normal, ordinary
things that people do and say, or something that I read. I find
that words and the way people use them are often quite funny. If I
have a chance to make an ordinary exchange of words with a stranger
something out of the ordinary and perhaps make their day a little
bit more fun and interesting, I like to "stir the pot" a little and
engage them. If I can lighten up someone's day - I do it!

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Touch, Intimacy, Wine, Coffee, Good Book, Art
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Hmmm . . . I will have to think about that!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I am probably more likely home than out, though my reasoning may
make me sound a bit old . . . as it seems to me that most of the
high schooler's are out in mommy's or daddy's car and doing things
on the roads, and I just do not care to be there at the same time!
So it would be more quiet at home with a book, TV, movie, or
something else. Saturday I am much more responsive toward going out
for dinner, drinks, attending a movie or an event, socializing with
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I have made more mistakes and bad decisions in my life than most
people that I know. There were many, many turns that were painful
truths that I learned through the death of my first wife, death of
my son, divorce of my second wife. Life lessons, a significant
amount of work to understand myself, as well as what is "right", or
"a fact", and that most times in life it really is about life
experience, perception and "opinion". There are very few things
that I have encountered that are either "right" (is white) or
"wrong" (is black), though there is a great spectrum of color in
between. Life is just not that simple, and I normally see a
multitude of possibilities in most situations. Makes my decision
making difficult at times ;-)!
