I'm also open to straight friends with shared interests.
I'm a down to earth, humble/modest, romantic, loving, scruffy, professional type who grew up next to a farm in the Midwest who has also lived in urban areas of Texas and California before choosing to park it in Colorado. You could say I'm rugged, handy, resourceful, and good at improvising. I am an old soul. I often drive like a grandpa... Where's the fire? I am a morning person. If you're bored already, we may not work out. I love taking long walks just before sunrise when the town is quiet and the drunks are still passed out. My runner friends speak of runners' high; I have walkers' high, and I have cartilage in my joints. I appreciate the simpler things like the outdoors, fresh air, gardening, working on my old house, etc, but I also appreciate finer things like cuisine, wine, etc. I don't mind traveling (road trips included) occasionally, but burning all of that kerosene or gasoline needs to have some greater meaning or purpose than to just see things and take pictures to prove to Facebook I was there, and I'd much rather stay in a unique quirky Airbnb than a luxury resort. I love a good dark craft beer or a glass of dry wine, but the bar scene is not really my thing.
My ideal day would consist of waking early together - around 6am, making some coffee then walking around town or City Park for an hour, then run by the market just as it opens on the way home, know each other, and then cook a healthy breakfast and tea and maybe a mimosa. Then maybe we'd work in the garden, or go away on a short hike or picnic/camping day with our dog(s). Or maybe work on one of endless possible projects together around the house. Or go thrift shopping. Or maybe we'd plan our next road trip.
I am interested in finding a wickedly intelligent, wholesome, humble/modest, possibly Midwestern, responsible, clean cut, witty, romantic, down to earth, clean-cut professional, pretty boy with a cute/fresh face and good sense of humor, who is casual and comfortable and rooted, and who is not chasing after money and popularity and everybody else's goals.
Beyond that, other things that tend to light my fire are upper Midwestern/northern/Scandinavian looks, a perky butt and legs, a little shyness, innocence, purity, a homebody, frugality/thriftiness, sweet and caring, romantic, funny, faithfulness and reliability. I love a guy who likes to cook, and I love to help.
