My self-summary
Hello! Nice to see you stopped by--sorry I missed you. Hope you enjoy what you're about to read. Be sure to let me know if there's a grin or a giggle along the way. It's a good sign we just might 'click'.

You could say I lead a pretty healthy lifestyle with time for a workout or walk and meditation each day. Soft-spoken and quietly confident usually work best for me. It's an odd mix, but you're sure to see a touch of shyness mixed with that healthy dose of confidence.

You'll find I enjoy a variety of activities from backgammon to Euchre, from the '7th inning stretch' to NASCAR, and from Vivaldi to Wicked. Really enjoy getting outdoors for hiking, biking, or gardening. And if there's something you really enjoy doing, I'm game for that, too. Music literally moves me. You'll find me swingin', swayin', and clickin' to new age, electronica, and smooth jazz.
What I’m doing with my life
Working day to day, playing day to day, looking forward to tomorrow. Really looking forward to tomorrow! Care to join me? Plans are still in the making. Come on, let's see what fun things we can wrangle up!

--Being a gentleman—allow me to offer you my arm as we walk, open your door, tend your chair, order your meal, and help you with your coat, ma'am!

--Mowing in straight lines
--Giving the benefit of the doubt
--Creating charts in Excel
--Seeing the amusing side
--Oh, and showing it with some quick, dry wit
--Being inconspicuous

--Having a magical touch with children and dogs--seriously!

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Oh my goodness, there's always something rattling around up there.

Not a lot of time, but just . . .

--Wondering why there isn't a U.S.-only button on this site. I know it's just a border and I have a passport, but . . . Nothing against our fair Canadian friends! You're welcome to invite me up and you're certainly welcome to 'come on down'.

--Is there really something to these OKcupid algorithms? I'm hedging my bet there is. So, if we're an 80% or better, give me a shout!

--What if distance wasn't a factor in a great relationship?
On a typical Friday night I am
Winding down from the week gone by and warming up for the weekend ahead. So what should 'we' do?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Briefs over boxers. Yep, the most private thing you're going to get, for something this most public!

You don't get colored or white until later. That's private.
You should message me if
You consider yourself graceful with a 'can-do' attitude. You would say you are both earthy and sophisticated. Your friends describe you as ‘good-to-go’ with just about anything. And, you understand a balanced lifestyle—work, play, and enjoy!

You have a special talent, say music, art, photography, writing, cooking, business, or animals. Of course, you have to promise to teach me new things about your special talent. Promise?

You find delight in simple moments, simple pleasures—quaint restaurants, hidden notes, walks on the beach, a breathtaking vista, an unexpected text, a stolen kiss. You are eager to share family and friends, getaways near and far, and evenings watching the sun set over the lake.

Was there a hint of a smile as you read along? Did the thought "He has possibilities" enter your mind? Then by all means, it would be a pleasure to hear from you. A simple 'Hi' will always do.
The two of us
