Painter w/ reclaimed mojo seeking Male Muse for lifetime love and inspiration.
I want a friend-lover-playmate-partner--long-term monogamous relationship. I like grown-up people who live in today and for tomorrow ... and, most important of all.... are happy.
I won't respond to a wink...if you are interested, please send me an email. Thanks for viewing my profile.
What I’m doing with my life
Outgoing, smart. fun, attractive, playful, loving, very well educated and traveled, independent, warm, sensual, generous, imperfect, authentic, caring, passionate & gutsy (sometimes stupidly fearless). Love Northern Calif. life, San Francisco, ethnic food and adventures... ..entertaining and cooking for friends in my home with a view of the water....have traveled extensively throughout the world outside of the U. S..would like to travel U.S. more now...too many places I haven't seen. If I don't have a travel partner, I travel by myself. I make life happen. I am (and have been) totally financially independent
I volunteer teaching art to people afflicted with Alzheimer's , dementia and Parkinsons in Novato and adults with developmental disabilities in Napa. I am now a professional painter...and show throughout the Bay Area..... have a work-only studio in an artist community and I belong to the local yacht club (boatless).
I am financially secure. Most of my friends are creative people who live very simply but are enthusiastic about their life choices. Dogma-free.
I’m really good at
making new friends.... I have a positive attitude and am open to
adventure and new experiences
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm pretty upbeat but have a serious side.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Mad Men, Philip Roth, John Updike, Tom Wolff, John Irving,
Homeland, Breaking Bad, Leonard Cohen, I have a huge collection of
art history books, most music, okonomiyaki, cha ca la vong,
soufflés, lobster, sushi, lemon meringue pie, Kokkari's goat stew
and my own blueberry pie in graham cracker crust.
The six things I could never do without
My best friend
Art and books
My survivor instinct
Music, film, theater and adventure
Love. And passion
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how fortunate I am to have wonderful sons, love where I live, creative giving friends, my own studio and, most of all, my health. I want a partner to share life with. I don't want to change you or have you change me. Acceptance is vital to me, I want a man who is able to be a partner with a woman. Eclectic tastes no boredom...period.
Relationships.....(from Annie Hall) “It reminds me of that old joke- you know, a guy walks into a psychiatrist's office and says, hey doc, my brother's crazy! He thinks he's a chicken. Then the doc says, why don't you turn him in? Then the guy says, I would but I need the eggs. I guess that's how I feel about relationships. They're totally crazy, irrational, and absurd, but we keep going through it because we need the eggs.”
On a typical Friday night I am
Studying for my driver's test..... Lol
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i like my alone time which is necessary for a creative person. I do not want a 24/7 relationship.
You should message me if
You are a nice smart guy with a good sense of himself, honesty, financially secure (as I am), has assertiveness and can show affection. Happy, kind, good humor, evolved, nice appearance, not perfect, likes to make love, dance, travel, HAVE FUN, be serious, JOYFUL, ENERGY, to grow intellectually and unstuck. ROMANCE (part of the 3 food groups) and generosity of spirit are crucial. Not taking the relationship or each other for granted is paramount. A photo of you in biking shorts or in a yoga position is not necessary.. Someone to share a souffle. A man who is a risk-taker appeals to me. You may have made some mistakes along the way, but at least you tried... I'm willing to date someone younger or older than I am, are you? I'm more interested in what goes on in your head than what you look like on the outside.
