My self-summary
"Some day, someone will walk into your life and make you realize why it never worked out with anyone else."
(Apparently the OKStoopid algorithm says I am arrogant....simply and absolutely not so?!?!?)
"L@@King for my best friend!!! I am rather funny and appreciate intelligent witty conversation, witty fun banter, friendship and good behaviour. Love skiing (45 years), boating, travel, cooking and reading....a man who knows the value of a good woman by his side and doesn't take that for granted.

I am looking for a QUALITY relationship WITH A HAPPY FUN SMART friendship, some one I will connect with on all levels.

Long term if truly compatible. I have been truly deeply in love twice in my life.... sigh..... Once more???

Intelligence is my aphrodisiac......that would be yours, not my own ;-)

You've got a clean heart and a dirty mind. Certainly NOT intimidated by a confident woman, rather someone to be cherished... see best friend above.....

Ultimately, I'm looking for someone who is single and available for a long-term relationship. But I know it can take a while to find the right fit, and for right now I'm open to other connections as well. What I am looking for is someone to go out and play with, eat some good food, talk, and see if there’s something "there".

You: Not afraid of love. Motivated. Open. Hilarious. Health conscious. Outrageously fun. Absolutely kind. Able to enjoy the exciting roller coaster of life, and also sit/cuddle/smooch with the quiet days and nights. A friend, a lover and all around good person. You hold integrity as a core value in yourself and others. You have your life together.

[I look at Cupid on my smartphone so it might look I'm on her lots but I'm not. Computer seems to time out after a while out but not the smartphone]
