Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Friends first is my goal. A first date is 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 date, excitement, sparks, wow - a process. Third date .....
Time seems to fly when you're having fun or with someone who is
right for you.
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. If you are
really ready and able to consider life's opportunities and
adventures, then it's time to get started.
I have 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 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 Emerson: "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 -

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. If we are kindred
spirits, I will feel like a perfect fitting old shoe to you - a
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a wonderful smile and a twinkle in my eye that I am told is
wonderful to intereact with. I also have a great sense of humor and
a reasonable well rounded intelligence. I have never stopped
learning. As a retired teacher, I still like to share. Like many
men, I am a solution engineer.
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. But
choices are a two way street so be prepared to be flexible and
exploring new adventures. If you are hard set on your existing
lifestyle, then you may not be open to truly share, to be truly
available for new adventures. I will support your choices. I expect
the same back.
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 I am / we are heading and understanding the flexibility
needed in life to tweak and adjust that course; 3) doing something
that has an opportunity to generate a smile while fulfilling a
dream; and 4) a desire to share time and space with you. 5) You
need to be affirmative by nature and 6) available for a real
relationship and not just tolerate differences in people.
What are your love languages?
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 - even something mundane in a bucket list is a
form of intimacy when shared. It is easy to talk about doing
things. I like doing them - to find a way to make it happen. But,
rest assured, doing nothing but relating to each other is an
intimate activity and part of my bucket list.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either out or wondering why I am not out. I am comfortable being
alone but the natural extrovert in me wants to play. If I can't
share the opportunity with an existing friend or create a new
friend, I just as soon stay home and watch HGTV home improvement
shows or read. I am also looking to buy a new-to-me used piano or
organ for my villa.
Many Friday nights (when in Dunedin), I will be found at the
Scottish American Hall participating in a Ceilidh gathering that
includes many forms of group self entertainment including some
American Country Line Dancing and many traditional Scottish wedding
type dances. Simple low cost fun in Dunedin on a Friday night.
Other times I might be doing Contra style dancing.
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 - I do eat my spinich.
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. I am an entrepreneur. Invest your future with
