Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Introduction / Housekeeping:
-I'm really 59 and changed my age to get included in searches up to
-I have solutions to conquer distance. Both short and long term
-I'll be in Red Hook NY in early August and Napa California after
-I've talked a lot about how I feel and think when describing
myself and my relationship goals. This may sound serious but is
intended to give you, gentle reader an accurate idea of who I am in
a way that I think is revealing and accurate. I believe that our
feelings and thoughts are the best way to determine a potential
relationship match - that and chemistry of course. The only
downside to this approach is that you might think I'm overly
serious all the time. This isn't true: I'm often silly and playful
and am writing this to put the rest of my profile in context!
I'm on this web site to see if I can find someone that has a mutual
connection with me leading to my goal of a meaningful relationship.
I'm not here to use this site for chatting. I see it only as a
tool. If you are serious about meeting up in person after only a
very few emails/phone calls then please message me. I'd love to
hear from you!
I am engaging, energetic and enthusiastic about life, most of the
I approach life from a position of wonderment and adventure. I
yearn for greater experiences that allow me to connect with people,
places, feelings, and ideas. What I'm missing is the presence of a
partner to share this with.
I'm driven to get to the heart/truth of the matter, to fully
understand it and my part in it even when it’s painful. I find
pretence and subtext tiresome. I'm energized and love it when
someone is open minded and emotionally brave and I strive to
continue advancing in these areas. I work at being aware of my own
issues so that I can chose to let them go and be fully present.
Sometimes I’m excellent at it and sometimes I need some help.
Either way I'm ready to hear respectful feedback and have developed
the ability to laugh at my imperfections.
I am one of the bravest people I know. Not bungie jumping brave but
the kind of brave that is willing to look at how and why I resist.
The kind of brave that is about making connection. All of this is
based on the fact that life is short and if I'm to embrace my
creative expression of self, grow, and contribute to my community
then I'll need to move past these limitation.
I am an eternal seeker, looking for the deeper meaning within each
I need someone who is emotionally open and willing and able to meet
me. If you are emotionally guarded or defended please pass me
My two most favorite quotes:
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
If not, it can't be helped.
Fritz Perls, 1969
There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why...
I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?
I am present, available, and thoughtful
What I’m doing with my life

How I can stop thinking and just be.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There is really no such thing as a typical night for me. Besides
I'd rather be cuddling on the couch with you than doing what I'm
doing these days!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My biggest turn on is emotional intimacy. If you can let your guard
down and meet me, I'm sure I'll want to hold you and then make love
to you. Oh...also, not as private, but I want to live somewhere
warm and by the water in the winter.
Also, I fantasize about selling everything and going on a massive
adventure touring the world with someone that I am really connected
with while writing about it.

feelings, your concerns, your thoughts, and your self.
You have a picture posted. As a man it not easy to get interested
in just the written word.
Also after an email or two I look forward to meeting you in person
so sorry, no long email correspondence.
Also if you live in Europe or somewhere warm I'm definitely
interested, France, the UK, Italy, Florida, California, or the
Southwest are on my list as I'm on the verge of being much more
available time wise.
