That's what women always say in their break-up e-mails, anyway. I'm also trustworthy, loyal, clean and reverent. I get the funny and handsome thing pretty regularly. (One woman said that I look like a Polish ax murderer in one of my pictures, but most everyone tells me I look better in person. Absurd. I'm not Polish.) Was told recently that I have a great jaw crease. Imagine that. What IS a jaw crease? I used to spend a lot of time at the gym and the dojo, but recently it's been yoga, mostly. Also hike, backpack, bike. I smell good and taste good. I don't smoke, do drugs, drink to excess or beat people up. I have all my hair. You should, too. No, seriously. I'm pretty strong, but I’ve studied bonsai and brush painting. I was a Registered Nurse, but have changed careers to landscape design/construction after even more education. I’m a big guy—6', 195 lbs.—and I practice Aikido, the martial art of peace. I spend a lot of time outdoors even when I'm not at work. My music tastes go from classical Indian to classical European to jazz to electronica.
A recent acquaintance called me "all man." I've been told that this is in short supply these days and that many were heading down to "Man Jose" to find someone. I thought that was pretty funny. Another said that I was a geeky stud. Their words, not mine. I like to cook, especially with and/or for someone, but I'm not a steel-cut-oatmeal and 70%-cocoa chocolate kinda guy. (Check that. I'm sorta getting into the chocolate thing. )
An old friend said that I was a "sensate". He meant that I take in the world visually and tactilly.
What is this thing about long walks on the beach. Doesn't anybody like a short walk on the beach or a medium walk in the hills? I do like being out in the rain, even if I don't get caught there. But I hate Pina Coladas. Seriously, what red-blooded guy likes Pina Coladas frcryinoutloud
I'm pretty left-leaning, politically. As in: I think Big Pharma should be nationalized and Ann Coulter institutionalized.
[Clarifications to the Details: I share custody of Gabby; I don't have a child, I have a young man; I design and build landscapes.]
I don't know what to do about this age thing. People tell me I think and act like someone 20 years younger. Someone recently said they thought I was in my 40's. I'm open to all ages, but it seems that women here think anybody over 60 is dead. I'm only "over 60" because of my birthdate.
I'm looking for a companion and a lover. I've met a lot of women who are too busy for the former and too scared of the latter. I don't push the latter. In fact, I'm monk-like in my patience. But you need to have worked through your stuff (parental, previous relationships, fearful weltanschaung, whatever).
