My primary photo was taken Nov 2012. I don't look much different but if requested will out up a more current one.
As my intro line indicates I'm a bit of a loner who feels it is important to be true to oneself and go without some of the benefits that come with being a member of the pack. I try to maintain an open mind and am accepting of other beliefs but I do have strong feelings on how one should ethically conduct their lives.
I believe that non-traditional rolls in male/female relationships are viable. I'm an idealist and a romantic. The best things in life are made so much more rewarding when shared. If I found the right woman she would be my best friend and of course would enjoy in sharing our mutual joys and pursuits. However we both would be accepting in accommodating the other in activities in which one of us might have little if any previous interest. Who knows - she could turn me onto something that is new and wonderful! With the right woman I would much rather stay home with her or go out and do something just by ourselves then go out to a party.
Although over the years I've had my favorite television programs I'm not a television watcher per se but watching TV on a comfortable couch with a curvaceous, like-minded woman is a great prelude to cuddling. I'm a touchy/feely type of person.
I have an artistic nature and enjoy creating art including abstract sculptures as well as flat art work. Other interests include woodworking and gardening, both flowers and vegetables.
Enjoy hiking which I try to do on a daily basis with my great dog in Duke Forest and also canoeing, bicycling and camping and would like to get back into photography, a pursuit I once enjoyed. Although there is nothing like the beach and I love playing in the surf then basking in the warmth of the sun on the sand I find myself drawn to the mountains, any mountains.
Sunsets are one of my favorite things. I'm a liberal tree hugger. And also an animal lover - therefore I don't eat them.
I love going to the local independent theaters, art galleries and thrift shops/recycling centers finding discarded/broken items and repairing or finding new uses for them. I'm an environmentalist who tries to reduce his footprint on our incredibly beautiful yet not without limits planet. I'm a fierce backgammon player who loves playing someone my equal, or even better, of superior caliber! Regarding my comments on backgammon they pretty much describe my feelings towards partners in many matters. Foreplay can take place on more then just the physical plane. The mind can be a very sexy organ!
I love taking the road less traveled, the two lane blacktops through the countryside, seeing things that time has left behind. I do not like flying unless it is in a small 4-passenger plane and would much rather drive when going on a trip. For me the actual journey is at the very least as important as the destination. Travel by train is a great alternative! I have traveled up to NYC and then on to Port Jervis, NY by train and thoroughly enjoyed it. Would love to go on multi-day train trips through mountainous areas.
I am unpretentious, nontradtional, and individualistic.
