peace, justice, equality, loving all of humanity, church/state
separation, and more. Being present in each moment to live life to
I've always looked for meaningful work that also connects with my
talents and passions. I've had three distinct careers in my life so
far, and I feel a fourth one coming on in the next 3-5 years.
I’m really good at
Music/singing, writing, speaking, languages, problem-solving,
overcoming adversity, facing challenges, growing and learning every
day, parenting, helping and coaching others, supporting others,
accepting others for who they are, accepting and embracing in peace
and trust whatever life sends my way.
The first things people usually notice about me
Calm, gentle, sweet smiling guy...after noticing my prosthesis or
different gait when I walk.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Love fantasy/sci fi/adventure films; foreign and independent films;
range of fiction and non-fiction books; all fine and performing
arts; museums; concerts; theater; festivals; music clubs; range of
music - jazz, pop, classical, rock, blue, world, hip-hop, etc.;
ethnic and richly spiced foods; vegetarian food.
The six things I could never do without
I can think of only one thing I truly could not do without and a
second that, if absent, would make life a incredibly challenging.
The first is self-care time. I take time every day to meditate,
journal, contemplate and exercise, i.e., to connect with my
internal and spiritual self and take good care of my mind/body
self. Self-care time is essential for me. The second is a
connection with other people, whether family, friends, colleagues
Other than these, I a not sure there is anything I truly could not
do without. I've lived through quite a bit in my life, and I've
learned that happiness is an "inside job". Life is what I make it.
I tend to face challenges and adapt to them, be it illness, death
of loved one, loss of material things, loss of money, etc. I've
lived here in the US and in another country, raised two children as
a divorced single father, come to terms with my sexuality, healed
from childhood abuse and trauma, and more.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, spirituality, who I am and what I want to do with the rest of
my life; wanting to share life with "Mr. Right"; life goals and
projects; fun leisure activities; writing poems and a book; singing
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing at home after an intense week of work OR doing something
fun and relaxing either alone or with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a happy and healthy survivor of childhood abuse, incest and
trauma who also struggled with addictive behaviors...got the help I
needed to heal and move on with life in joy, peace and emotional
and physical health.

You are an open, honest, caring man who wants to engage in an
intimate relationship, whether friendship, dating or LTR. Open to
all and also lean toward men of color - black, Asian, Latino,
Middle Eastern, etc. Also tend to be more attracted to men younger
than I, though not exclusively.
