I have a number of contrasts in my life: I'm an engineer who teaches yoga. I'm a dad of two incredible grown sons who stomps in puddles to celebrate an inner child. I like to dress up for a great meal, and I love pasta on a hut trip in smelly ski clothes.
I'm big in a lot of ways - how I laugh, how I dance, how I love.
I don't really give a s**t about age, but a fit body and a sense of humor in a partner are a must. I have both. It's hard for me to list all the things I want in a partner; some profiles on here move me, and some don't, and it's not always obvious to me why, though it would be tough if you don't like to dance. I'm dedicated to being authentic, and a lack of that is a deal breaker. I'm the wrong guy if you're a strong political conservative, or evangelical about anything except the environment.
I’m a sucker for wit, repartee, spontaneity, touching, the way your face looks laughing from the core, and how stunned you are by the glory of that columbine etched in dawn light. I love to cherish my partner in word and deed, and move together on the dance floor and the hiking trail. I'd like to take you out for a great night in heels and a dress, and then wander Saturday Market in a tshirt the next day. I want to have that glorious experience of getting to *know* you, some of it while stroking your hair. Great sex is a must, and if everything else connects, it’s a given.
The fun I want to share with a partner is a wide, eclectic range:
Pretty much anything outside, and anything that moves my body. Skiing, hiking, biking (mostly road). Yoga, any style. (I teach Vinyasa). Being out in wild mountain weather, in great gear, and just digging the intensity.
Wide ranging conversations on the world, art, politics, trends and even the Chakras. Woo woo I'm not, but I celebrate spirit and I'm really open minded. I love to talk over dinner and wine, and I'd love to cook it.
Laying on my back on a grassy slope in the sun, or by a fire. Sitting by a mountain stream, feeling the breeze. Drowning in the beauty of a field of high alpine wildflowers. Celebrating that at that second, in that place, it's a perfect moment.
Dinner pretty much anywhere on Pearl St, Bands on the Bricks, wandering the Sante Fe art district, cruising Lodo, the DAM, center seats at the Buell, DeVotchKa at the Boulder Theater, Lyle Lovett at Red Rocks, a dive blues bar, a wine tasting (though I consider myself to have the palate of a horse). I can do the art flick at the Mayan or the Boedecker, or an overly simplistic blockbuster at the multiplex. Hell, even the Zoo could be fun.
Travel, as near as Moab, as far as Bali. Maybe simply the Oxford in Denver.
And I'm always willing to try something new.
