I moved here to Oroville spring 2011. Before that spent two years in the Santa Barbara area.
Before the move to southern cal lived in Tempe,AZ for over a decade and Fla. for a few years before that. Born in New England grew up on the road. That may seem like a lot of traveling but I've never been one who is tied to any one place,could be because even as a child we moved somewhat often including coast to coast.
I left home and was on my own for the most part since I was fourteen and outside of a few years here and there never lived in the same place longer than 6 months to a year at a time. Until I meet my wife and settled down around the time I turned thirty. I've traveled extensively through out the USA using whatever mode of travel was convenient,accessible and affordable at any given time.
During my travels I've stayed in hotel suites in the finest hotels ordering the best food that money can buy,but I've also slept under bridges and on beaches cold broke and hungry. I've lead a very interesting life to say the least and have meet and learned many things from many different people from all walks of life over the years. I'd like to think that passing on some of that knowledge to others through out the years has helped at least a few people to enjoy life more than if we had never meet.
At this point in time I find myself deeply missing that connection,the need to share life with a significant other.
I'm unlike anyone you've ever meet because I am truly one of a kind. I have always been one to question authority and never blindly follow anyone or anything. I'm still a hippie at heart because I truly believe in the whole love and peace,being one with nature thing and can usually find the good in any person or situation. But on the other hand I'm very Conservative and always have been because I believe in taking personal responsibility for ones actions.
All those years of hard living combined with a major accident back in the early 80's has finally taken it's toll and I now find myself forced to retire. I've always loved northern Cal and have always meet great people here which is why I'm here now.
I do walk with a cane and occasionally have those days where I don't want to walk anywhere,but I do enjoy a good hike along the river and would like to do some hiking in the nearby mountains or on the coast. I would never say something is out of the question,but going dancing is not high on my list of activities.
I am honest,loyal and am down to earth and I have no desire to play silly drama fueled games. I'm looking for the same. I can cook,clean,sew and basically take care of myself in general so I'm not looking for someone to take care of me.
What I'm hoping to find is a woman that will be my equal. Not so much complete me as I don't need to find my other half as much as find someone who is complete herself yet together we become as one in a whole different way than we are separate.If you can understand that and want the same it will be a great start.
