Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A playful, easy going guy with strong hands and a gentle touch.
There's no denying my irreverent sense of humor and being an
incorrigible mischief finder ;) My demeanor reflects a laid back
personality that's easy to be around and with. Somewhat
introverted. A thinker. I arrive at decisions slowly and
methodically. Confident/independent/self sufficient and don't do
well with someone that's clingy/needy. Considerate, passionate,
spontaneous, good listener and healthy in every regard. Kindness,
compassion and generosity are important to me and strive to live
them each day. Enamored with the prospect of living a snowbird
lifestyle one day - the greater Phoenix area as a winter home (or
an acceptable alternative) and summers in the Pacific NW area. It's
important you have, or are open to, a similar aspiration. Petless
by choice allows me the flexibility to live such a lifestyle.
I have two awesome boys, 28 and 31, who are very important to me.
Their mom did a great job with them - I enjoy their company greatly
when their schedule permits, but they live elsewhere, so I come and
go as I please.
Although I am naturally curious and have quite an adventurous bent,
I also enjoy those slow, relaxing times at home with a significant
other - comfortable quiet and stillness. My home environment is
peaceful, comfortable and welcoming - I enjoy the company of good
friends and taking care of others. Been single many years now and
lead a very full life with friends, family, work and travel.
Although my life would be greatly enhanced and fulfilling with the
right woman, I'd rather stay single if it weren't a good match. The
age demographic I posted is a guide only - not cast in stone. How
can you gauge a person solely by their age?
What I miss most about being in a great relationship is the
collaboration of all things great and small. Teamwork. The ultimate
in companionship that can only be found through exclusivity.
Looking for that connection where passion and mind bending intimacy
flow easily - the kind you dream of or read in a book. I want to
ruin your lip gloss - not your mascara:) Sex is a powerful life
force and paramount when it comes to compatibility, but to be
honest, you will need to bring much more to the table than sex for
a lasting relationship. A true friend and companion that transcends
gender differences is really what I hope to find.
You'll never need to provide for me and will require that you are
financially and emotionally secure as well. Inherently
compassionate, kind and loving - a giver, as I am, believe it's
never OK to use the truth to hurt someone and that being kind is
always better than being right. Looking for a relationship built on
trust - that is self sustaining through kindness and consideration
to and for each other, as it's just a matter of time before a
relationship is challenged by illness or circumstance. It's a sad
truth that we need to grieve in order to love better. I've been
around long enough to see and experience first hand what loss means
and know for a fact that in the end, all that matters is
If this resonates with you, perhaps we should get to know one
another a little better - see if there's more than just casual
interest via cyberspace :) If you possess that same combination of
curiosity and adventure, rule bender and pusher of envelopes, we
just may be able to find enough mischief to last a lifetime
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Enjoying this incredible ride :) Love my family, my work and have
the best friends anyone could hope for. Living in the moment.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Collaborating/problem solving. Have quite an aesthetic. Make a
delicious martini and give aamaazing foot rubs! Kissing. And as you
know......it's ALL in the kiss :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
You should determine that for yourself.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Love all things and places that involve salt water. Enjoy outdoor
activities greatly but my life isn't defined by how far I can run
or how high I can climb. Weekend getaways - love Portland and the
Pearl District! I'm a foodie - love BBQ and spicy. No seafood,
thank you. Food carts - the best food I ever had was from a street
vendor in Mexicali - including the cooking school I attended in
Unbroken - it will break your heart and make you cry. Cutting For
Stone, Water For Elephants, Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Trilogy, An
Unfinished Life, anything by James Lee Burke.
Crash (can relate & empathize!), Good Will Hunting, The
Wrestler, Seven Pounds, Shawshank Redemption, the Rush Hour movies,
12 Angry Men, The Ox Bow Incident, many others. Enjoy theatre
occasionally. Not much for network TV but love to surf the indie
ROCK! I'm a product of the Bay Area 60's music scene. Still
influenced and love music from that era. Loud, fast guitar driven
bluesy rock is what I listen to most often, but also have quite a
diverse and extensive library of artists that I listen to,
depending on the occasion/mood. New age, country, blues,
alternative, grunge, classical, American Indian rock opera. Enjoy
live performances - especially in the summer. The city of Everett
does an outstanding job with their Music in the Park series. Have
noticed musical taste correlates directly with compatibility - have
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Amazed and disappointed that so many of you have selected to list
things you have or own and place the word "my" in front of them.
It's very telling.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Visiting Cuba. If my match is artistically inclined - creative,
design skills, enjoys building/remodeling. If my partner already
lives in Portland, Austin, Phoenix.......Dying to experience SXSW
in it's entirety! The music....the food :) New Mexico, Memphis,
surfing in Encinitas or Cardiff CA. I like to scratch that curious,
adventurous itch through travel and exploration of interesting
places - sometimes off the beaten path. Have you thought about
creating your own fate and dare to live your dream in paradise?
Could you live in Tuscany? In a beach house on the Sea of Cortez?
Perhaps overlooking the Pacific from Kapaa? Or overlooking the
beautiful desert vistas of Scottsdale? I very much look forward to
transitioning to the greater Phoenix area (or an acceptable
alternative) as a snowbird one day.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If not with friends, I try to find an interesting film on one of
the indie channels. And having the occasional impure thought.......

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're curious and adventurous by nature. Not reserved or too
formal. A traveler, tactile, passionate. You have a great sense of
humor :) You LOVE to be touched......If this resonates with you,
perhaps we should get to know one another a little better - see if
there's more than just casual interest via cyberspace :) If you
possess that same combination of curiosity and adventure, rule
bender and pusher of envelopes, we could probably find enough
mischief to last a lifetime :) I'd love to hear from you. Nothing
