My health and fitness.
Ever expanding knowledge.
I've had some rejection on dating sites from women I considered bright, engaging, and attractive lately and have come up with possibilities why that might be happening. Please spare my self-confidence the hit if anything below puts up a red flag to you.
I get engaged politically and often passionately in places like Facebook/blog sites. I will take on bullies. In today's climate I'm considered liberal or progressive but in a normal environment am rather centered. We haven't been in a normal environment for decades. You should not watch Fox News for your information or we'll have a problem. If you idolize Rush, Hannity, Sarah Palin, Donald Trump, etc. I'll have a very hard time taking anything you say politically seriously.
Even though I'm in very good shape for my age because of my athletic background, I'm showing signs of normal wear and tear. My hair is thinning. My dimples are accompanied by other lines that weren't there 5 years ago. I think plastic surgery, Botox, etc. a ridiculous notion so, if you are only sexually attracted to the Marlboro Man type, move on to the next profile. I'm not on here just to be your best friend/intellectual soul mate that you'd never dream of being intimate with. That's an insulting notion. Please convince me that the shallowness I'm seeing from some is an anomaly.
I've been divorced nearly three years and immediately after found solace in an unusual environment of the virtual world of Second Life where I entered into a long term, long distance relationship filled with classic bad judgment and drama and many life lessons on dishonesty and trust. I've been out of that relationship long enough now to find it simply a learning experience and laughable although I still go into that world as a performing musician to keep in touch with the international audience I created and keep my music skills honed. I am attracted to women that, if I mention that history, understand the appeal of fantasy, creativity, and imagination and don't raise their eyebrows wondering who this crazy man across the table is.
I am an atheist. Not an agnostic or someone that isn't sure but an absolute non-believer in any gods and the notion of an afterlife. That has nothing to do with my morals or ethics. I'm a firm believer in the notion of the Golden Rule and/or karma and have a very compassionate and empathic side. I am in wonder and awe of the universe around us and look for scientific answers to the why's of life. I tend to be very compatible with religious and spiritual people as long as they are not evangelical although I could offend from time to time during my outrage over fundamentalists and people trying to tie religion to government.
That's the warts and all picture. I'm human, imperfect, passionate, full of myself at times, highly sensual, deep, stupidly honest, keenly intellectual, impatient sometimes because life is getting shorter, loyal and giving. I'm hoping for the same but not a clone. Differences add spice. Serious red flags add guaranteed failure.
Also, I will not answer any of the questions on here that deal with anything to do with illegal activity such as smoking pot or doing drugs and nobody else should either. I would suspect there's a great deal of lying on those questions because of that very illegality since the answer is not only public but also in a criminal investigation your answers could be subpoenaed and used against you. I will state politically that I believe the "war on drugs" has been a waste of time and resources and many substances should be legalized and their usage controlled and taxed, their abuse and overuse handled by education and counseling.
Most of the potential matches I'd find on here grew up during the 60's and 70's and the environment was so different than the one today. I don't care how anyone who lived during those times answers those questions. I know what you were exposed to and how society and penalties have changed since then. Those topics should be reserved for private discussions.
