Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've lived a varied and interesting life. I've been a political
organizer, a motorcyle messenger, a country hippie, a Rotary
President, and many other things. For the last 30 years I've run my
own auto repair businesswith five employees, and plans for
expansion. I'm currently President of my housing cooperative, which
I founded aver 25 years ago.
I like to learn new things. I started studying the saxaphone in my
40's and a few years later took up singing in a choir.
I've studied kung-fu [in my youth], Tai-Chi, and have
intermittantly practiced Yoga, something I have gone back to
recently. Right now I go togo to Tai Chi twice week and take hikes
on the weekends.
Giving back to humanity has been a consistant theme through my
life. One of the joys of owning my own business is that it allows
me to fund raise for causes I want to support, from the Humane
Society to helping cure blindness in Cambodia to funding a drama
program at the local high school.
I love to travel, both in the outdoors and in foreign countries,
exposing myself to different cultures and all sorts of
environments, from the Black Rock desert to the back trails of the
Sierras, from the Angkor Temples in Cambodia to the mountains of
Peru. For the last ten years I've been on a path of personal growth
and transformation. People who've watched me grow through this say
I've changed more than anyone they know. I know its all been for
the better. though frequently painful and difficult. Tantra is but
one of the things I've studied.
One of the key things I've been learning about, and continue to
learn about, is how to be a better partner.
I am thoughtful, adventurous, romantic and caring. Most of my
partners have told me that I am the highest integrity person
they've ever known. I tell the truth.

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music. Good books. Friends. A chance to walk in nature. Contact
with a female mind and body. A good glass of wine.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Often, but not always low key as I recover from my usual full week.
Sometimes a party. A good meal, maybe a movie, maybe just staying
home and taking it easy, either with my partner, a good friend or
sometimes just by myself. If I'm in relationship,I start my evening
by changing my energy and focus from work to open-heart so I can be
fully present with my partner.
