My self-summary
I can live with doubt, and uncertainty and not knowing.
I think its much more interesting to live not knowing,
than to have answers which might be wrong.

I have approximate answers, and possible beliefs, and different degrees of certainty about different things, but I’m not absolutely sure of anything, and in many things I don’t know anything at all.

~ Richard Feynman, Nobel Prize in Physics

I grew up in a small town - blue collar, coal and steel, and when I was 17 I left, looking for adventure. I have always needed to stretch and explore and that little town was just not big enough.
I've lived in in a lot of places since then but New York has been my home most of the time. Its been a fun journey. I've traveled in Europe, Mexico, the Caribbean and have a second home in Florida.

I've been an entrepreneur most of my life. My consulting firm is well established with an excellent reputation, my three kids are grown and doing well. I have a fair amount of free time and a fair degree of financial freedom... the adventure continues. What will come next?

I'm a bit of a rebel, although I appear conservative. Irreverence can be a lot of fun. Its probably why I love Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart and Chris Rock. I'm pretty respectful, but I don't have a problem with jokes of any kind, even if at my own expense. Life is too short not to laugh at ourselves. Let's face it, humans are pretty funny.

I have done a fair amount of inner work. If you do that you ultimately develop some pretty good personality traits. Kindness, generosity, compassion, to name a few. You stop taking things too seriously.

I try to have fun with everything I do. It would be great to spend time with someone who is also committed to doing that.

I am interested in a committed monogomous partnership although I am open to friendship of any kind, as long as it's enjoyable and interesting. I had a good marriage that ended right on time, and some great relationships after that. I made plenty of mistakes and learned from them. Everyone I was with made me a better person.

Romance is essentially about honoring the other one, paying attention to what they enjoy and love, and creating an atmosphere that responds to that. Its not that hard when you figure this out. I am an old soul. If you know what this means and feel similarly, I would love to connect. We could have a lot of fun together.

I would love to find a partner with like minded interests. Someone nurturing, smart, and savvy, who loves good music, good food, good wine...who enjoys the spiritually sensuous nature of our world..light hearted, and easy going - who will go anywhere with me, intellectually, emotionally and otherwise.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an entrepreneur and always have been. I would probably be useless working for someone, but I hope to never find out. I like to do things in my own quirky way and it has worked out really well so far.

I volunteer in the state prisons and on a helpline for people under stress. I feel its important to offer service of some kind. Prison's are stressful places when you have been required to live there. There is nothing better than a little compassion for the ones that make mistakes. One day it might be you.

There are a couple places I like to visit every year. One is Montana, the other is Andros. Any place else is fair game. If you want to go somewhere, just ask me. There is a good chance of a yes.

I read a lot and really have fun trying to figure out what makes people tick. This makes for really fun conversation. The world is extraordinarily complex, the universe amazingly intelligent. How could you ever be bored?
I’m really good at
Spontaneous adventure, conversation, listening, making travel plans, telling stories, finding easy ways to do things (my version of lazy), fly fishing, golf, telling dumb jokes.
The first things people usually notice about me
I smile a lot and laugh to myself. I'm tall, friendly and easy going. I don't suffer fools gladly. I have a limited tolerance for small talk, and am not into long goodbyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
hmmm...Carl Hiaasen, Ken Follett, Jane Roberts, David Hawkins, Tina Fey, Paulo Coelho, Jeff Foster, Haruki Murakami, The New York Times.

Groundhog Day, Shakespeare in Love, Dances with Wolves, Rob Roy, A Christmas Carol. These are great stories that will never grow old for me. Jersey Boys, Book of Mormons - funniest play I have ever seen.

Love Stephen Colbert, Jon Stewart, Larry David, True Blood, Dexter, SNL, CNN, Homeland Security, Boardwalk Empire. I am a sap for the Voice and other talent shows.

John Coltrane, John Mayer, Maroon 5, Diana Krall, Kat Edmonson, Van Morrison, Elvis Costello, Toots Theilemans, Al Green, Annie Lennox, Jobim, Dave Mathews, David Gray, Jason Mraz, Neil Young, the list is endless. I love live music, esp. jazz.

I eat everything, but in very small quantities.
The six things I could never do without
I do not know what I did before the IPAD was invented.
a good malbec
my friends
espresso in the morning
clean hair and clean sheets
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What makes the universe work...who came up with all this stuff???
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I took a lot of hallucinogens when I was young. It had a very good impact on me. I have walked on hot coals in my bare feet. I do not recommend it.

I am not particularly private, as I cannot find a reason to hide things, but this is probably not be the best forum. It is good for people to like me a little bit before they realize what a freak I am. There is a lot to be said for transparency, especially with your partner. I think its an important quality of intimacy.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 45–56
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You are sensuous, fun loving, light hearted, know yourself pretty well, don't take this dating thing too seriously (including these profiles), understand the difference between love and being in love (there is a difference), and don't cut and run when things get challenging.
