Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well I'm going to cut to the chase and list a deal breaker. I
really want a lady who lives within a 45 min. drive time. I want to
be able to spend quality time with my lady and if a nice hug is
needed I can be there for you.
I have owned a barber/beauty salon in Carmel for 45 years and
during that time I have learned so much from my clients. In the
last 10-15 years, as I started to have thoughts of retirement, I
started to take note of how my clients, both male and female, aged
both mentally and physically. I observed that it's important to
make a strong effort to stay fit, have something you are involved
in which gets you out of bed and going each morning, engaged in
activities that keep your mind open, inquisitive and still learning
something new, be sure to interact with all age groups, not just a
bunch of "old" thinking people.
To this end I'm at the gym three mornings a week, I go to GenTrain
classes at MPC, involved in an Olli World Affairs discussion group,
go to the World Affairs Council luncheon and talk monthly, and when
I retire I hope to give back to society by working as a docent at
the Big Sur Lighthouse. Also they are about to give me my own
personal stool at the Apple store classes My friends refer to me as
I try to led a healthy and fit life style and a lady who shares
that is important to me.
Still working on all this info input. How many questions are there
anyway??? I'll bet some geek, nurd in NSA has a smirk on their face
with this website!!!! Hopefully I'll complete everything in the
next few days. stayed tuned and recheck me out, I just may be the
man you would like to have in your life for fun and adventure.
Leave a note.
OK enough already, I'm stopping at 1000 questions!!!!!!!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Well after 45 years in a profession I've loved, and given me so
much, I'll be in full retirement at the end of June and ready to
have more adventures large and small and have the time to do longer
more extensive travel. I love car trips and have traveled many of
the back roads in the west and backpacked in many of the National
Parks. I love the back roads as you don't see America from an
interstate. Also you don't experience interesting food, people and
adventure if you always eat in chain food joints and stay in chain
hotels. I enjoy eating at funky ethnic restaurant, a nice picnic
spot and the occasional dress up dinner for special
I love small, unpretentious B&Bs and funky local non-achiever
bars. Think Moss Landing Inn when Shane Dewhite is playing. I enjoy
weekend trips to SF and extended weekends to places in N CA. This
includes setting up "mystery" weekend trips for no special reason
and I appreciate a woman who would also take initiative in these
matters. Come to think of it when I retire I won't be restricted to
I enjoy a healthy life style and good healthy meals which I enjoy
cooking, however being gourmet and fancy is not a
I hope to get back into photography and doing even more day trips
on our local back roads in Rosebud. Have you ever taken the LONG
way to the River Inn for a Sunday afternoon of sun and music? So
much to explore and I'm hoping to find someone to share all that
with. I also look forward to more international travel as I'll have
time to really get into the culture on all levels. Finding someone
to share all that and be able to laugh at the time and later at
things that don't always go "right" but add to tales to tell is my
I believe I'm VERY open in communication and NOT the "strong silent
type ". I'm a very good active listener and aware and sensitive
when a shoulder and hugs are needed. I appreciate strong yet gentle
women who are honest in relationships. I appreciate a lady who
looks good in jeans and GREAT in that little black dress. Casual
yes, frumpy no. That may indicate thinking "old ". Having been in
the beauty profession I fully realize that it's NOT all about looks
but it can "send signals". I enjoy a woman who is intelligent and
well informed . If you are jaded and "been there done that" I don't
think we could be a match. i must warn you that after I get to know
you we will share a lot of laughs and that I am a hopeless romantic
and to me that is more than just "candle light dinners and moon
light walks on the beach".!!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
kissing…..so I"m told. Beyond that I guess you'll have to find out
on your own……by candle light?

I love to read a variety books but mostly non fiction history,
historical novels, adventure , and political. The SATURDAY NYC
Times in bed Sun Morning with a cup of coffee and a cuddly lady. I
also read the Atlantic Monthly, Rolling Stone, National Geographic,
Time, a couple of car mags and Playboy……and yes I look at the
As to movies, I'm very much into the Osio indies, and good quality
movies such as Dallas Buyers Club, Nebraska, Osage County.Music my
taste runs to 1955-1985 Rock & Roll, No Disco or Heavy Metal!!
Now days more inclined to Blues and KPIG Americana

know what that involves.
