I am open and honest and want the same in return. When I first learned to use a computer, they had a feature called “reveal screen” which would show all the formatting etc. behind the finished page; I thought, ”Wouldn’t it be wonderful if there was a button you could press and show the truth of a person – no games, no pretenses, no secrets?” Even more wonderful is when a person willingly opens up and reveals himself to you. A kind, honest, and fun-loving Christian man is what I hope to find. To me, there is a vast difference between being primly and intolerantly religious - which makes me shudder - and being open minded, spiritual and full of life. Intelligence, gentle humor, enthusiasm, loyalty, and compassion especially during difficult times.
There are so many things I love to do, but so much better when we're together. I love being near the water and in "charming" places, especially with interesting history and architecture like Carmel & Monterey. I love to travel, try new foods, meet new people, and learn new things. I’ve been all over Northern Europe, but look forward to also visiting France, Italy. & ....? Wherever I've lived - Seattle, Boston and the Bay Area – I like to explore the back roads and local byways.
Although I am creative and inventive I would admire and appreciate when you help fix things or even change a lightbulb. When my antique bed broke and the advice from the specialists was that it was virtually un-fixable, I got some books from the library, bought a chisel, and the end result is a good-as-new (though it's antique?) bed. I design and make clothing, costumes and jewelry, repair things around the house, do a bit of interior design. I bring bugs outdoors and have helped restore various tiny creatures back to health. I get as much of a thrill watching the ballet of hundreds of butterflies coming to visit a particular bush, then fly away after 20 minutes like the final curtain has fallen, as watching a virtuoso like Baryshnikov dance. But all these things are better with a partner, don't you think?
People usually think I am younger than I am but no, I am not interested in dating a young man. I have two wonderful sons of my own and don't need another. I am affectionate, very sensual, vivacious, fun-loving and adventurous. People usually feel welcomed and put at ease by me and often confide in me. I'm a good listener. I love to make people laugh and witty remarks and humorous stories are as natural as breathing to me. Oh, did I mention I'm also mischievous? Did you see that sparkle in my eyes? My "inner child" is alive and well. I hope you like surprises as well as I do. I am comfortable in most social situations but I also love to be at home. If you want to cook with me, I already like you.
I want to share everything with you, the good, the bad, the mundane. You will never doubt my interest in you and you will love discovering how fascinating and wonderful you are. You'll feel like your life just started over in the way you dreamed of, but didn't quite dare hope for. I will never make you jealous of other men, but other men will probably be jealous of you - us - as we live, love and laugh; but I won't even notice them except to be polite and kind.
