It's tough to be humble while promoting myself as witty, cultured
and accomplished (lol), but that's just how it is. Among other
things, I've been told that I'm a hopeless romantic, so I'm here
seeking that one outstanding woman to help bring me to a higher
level of happiness. My character is friendly, easy going, humorous
and playful; my nature is caring, curious, empathetic, loyal and
sensitive; and my instincts are attentive, adventurous, creative,
intuitive. I'm an out-of-the-cube thinker who is passionate about
those special things I choose to pursue.
I like to focus my energy, creativity, and curiosity on new (and
old) challenges, people and experiences. I feel fortunate to have
had lots of opportunities so far for professional fulfillment,
travel, the joys of being a parent and a friend. I'm hoping for
more of the same in the next chapter of my life.
I am worldly, warm, creative, and passionate about many things,
I'm a coach and a mentor, a believer in the potential of people, an
avid reader, a lover of nature and a lifelong learner. I value
sensuality, harmony and close relationships. I have many interests
and seeking a special woman with whom to share them, a woman who
will be my best friend, trusted partner and committed lover. As a
true romantic, I believe in nurturing and cultivating the
emotional, intellectual and physical intimacy of a loving
What I’m doing with my life
Our world is dynamic and our brains need good quality information.
As learning doesn't end when our schooling does, I enjoy PBS,
Discovery, History and the Science channels along with some
mind-numbing commercial television when I'm just chilling.
I’m really good at
Helping people feel at ease, actively listening to them and their
issues, eliciting their thoughts and feelings and helping them to
untangle knots...bottom line - compromise and collaboration. My
friends say I'm loyal and committed to people and social causes
because I like participating in community based social and cultural
activities. I'm also a pretty good photographer (both freelance and
for personal interest).
The first things people usually notice about me
Women often comment about my misty blue eyes, wavy platinum hair
and sincere smile but it's usually my friendliness and personality
that grabs their interest. And in short time they discover my
intelligence, quick wit, excitement, passion and unadulterated
humbleness; fortunately, men usually don't comment
Speaking of that, I've hesitated posting a photo because my
children and their friends use this site and might wander upon my
profile and my personal thoughts. I hope you understand my privacy
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm a chronic NPR fan yet enjoy soft jazz, moody blues, classic
rock, oldies, big bands, Cajun, new wave and classics (all
preferably live), almost anything but (c)rap, country and opera. I
read newspapers and enjoy historical and political books and like
the distraction of fiction by Michael Crighton and John Grisham. No
matter the author, I love our language, especially words that are
diverse, multi-meaning and obscure, and cause the brain to explore
divergent paths of thoughts and ideas, always seeking something new
I enjoy walking along the ocean, river and parks, farmers' markets,
festivals, gardening, concerts, craft shows and flea markets. I
like a variety of movie genres, including comedies, romance, action
and thrillers but I relish the old B&W movies from the 30s-60s
featuring Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart, Clark Gable and Humphrey
Bogart, or anything directed by Alfred Hitchcock. And whenever
possible, I get to musicals and other performances around town.
The six things I could never do without
Let's see -
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...what really matters in life, appreciating what I have, enjoying
the journey and not focusing on the little issues or the
destination. Of course, my childrens' welfare is always on my
BTW, the sexiest thing in the entire world is intelligence, being
thoughtful, being honest and being generous to the less fortunate.
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't have a typical Friday night (or any day), because each is a
new day to explore, enjoy and treasure. But a good fish fry and a
couple Coronas (with lime) is always enjoyed.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a contemporary thinker with an old-fashioned mindset who's
embarrassed to admit I'm using an online dating site.
You should message me if
...you own a playful mind and are looking for new adventures (with
a little mayhem) while making some great memories. What's more,
please don't expect romance from someone who treats a date as if it
were a job interview. It may be the new norm to expedite
"qualifying" someone, but "getting acquainted" is how people really
get to know each another, and maybe fall in love...
