Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Friends first is my goal. Too often, a first date seems almost like
a job interview. Lots of stress. Then, we start to really relax and
realize we actually have a lot to appreciate in each other. The
second and third dates - excitement, sparks, wow - a process.
Where I live in the world doesn't matter. Whom I am sharing the
adventures with and what we are doing does. I am willing to modify
my life. Are you??? It is a two way street situation. Amazing how
many folks tend to forget this aspect. You gain by adapting to new
adventures. Otherwise, you rust out.
I have now moved from Annapolis, MD to Dunedin into a new-to-me
1972 era villa. I am wrapping up a gut rehab of this new-to-me
home. Semi-retirement is wonderful. I drive a hybrid vehicle so
getting in the car and going places is normal. My current goal is
to live in a warmer climate area and travel. Currently, I still
have a small summer use cabin near Annapolis. MD that I use as a
northern base of operations. The cabin is up for sale.
When left to do things by myself, I tend to do Celtic theme
activities. Most of Europe is a mix of Celtic heritage and gene
pool. I have three kilts and a great attitude about having an
active social life. Day time, while in Florida, is for walks,
kayaking, and biking. I want to learn how to play golf and how to
cook differently for a healthier lifestyle. Besides traveling, I
enjoy looking at urban development ideas, real estate investing,
sunbathing, swimming, socializing, reading, and either doing stuff
on the internet or watching TV (not in any order).
Life is like a big candy store (or box of chocolates). I like to
feel like I am living life fully. To paraphrase Henry David
Thoreau: "To suck the marrow out of the bones of life". I expect
and want to dance, not just watch others dance. Are you dancing or
are you watching? I don't believe in just waiting for someone to
get up to dance - I tend to instigate.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am doing my bucket list. No excuses (explanations are okay) -
only solutions are encouraged. To the bold goes the gold. Got an
event, let me know. It is always more exciting to share it with
someone. Then, it becomes OUR bucket list of things to do.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making you feel comfortable when you are with me and wanting more
of that opportunity. I am the real McCoy - a keeper.
The first things people usually notice about me

I have a wonderful smile, a twinkle in my eye, a great sense of
humor, and a well rounded intelligence.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Life is a candy store. I am still learning and open to all
posibilities. My preferences should not limit your choices. Choices
are a two way street so be prepared to be flexible and exploring
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) A water bottle to stay hydrated with; 2) a sense of the general
direction we are heading and understanding the flexibility needed
in life to tweak that course; 3) doing something that has an
opportunity to generate a smile while fulfilling a dream; 4) a
desire to share time and space; 5) a need to be affirmative by
nature and not just tolerate differences in people; and 6) to be
available for a real relationship.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What else can I do right now or fairly soon that is in my bucket
list. Not everything is an expensive event. Many bucket list items
are often simple local things. Got an event? Let me know. Intimacy
is about sharing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I am comfortable being alone but the natural extrovert in me wants
to play and share adventures. Can you come out to play?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am what I am and that is all that I am. Sometimes the most simple
explanation is what it is all about. Being honest and upfront is
about risk taking and risk management. If you understand that risk
taking is a key part of the affirmation and relationship building
process, then you get it. It is part of my love languages.
