Yes I am different. No I don’t live for convention. I have more than enough for freedom. There’s enough to share with you. I’m getting better at not wanting things.
So after you’ve dated your 50- 60- and 70-year-old hunks and wonder why you’re still not happy, try me. Before you tap on my window, though, please read Dylan’s “All I really Want To do….” Lyrics. (Just Google it) Not trying to change you or re-arrange you. All I really want to do, is baby be friends with you… maybe more, if we both feel good about it.
I don’t drink or smoke tobacco, no hard drugs, take no meds. Repeat – no meds. (OK a baby aspirin and a multi-vitamin.) I don’t limp, pimp, or skimp through life. If you limp I’ll lift you. I have no preconceived ideas of ‘beauty’ except maybe one - I love plump.
Pursuit of Happiness, anyone?
I am Adventuresome, Romantic, and Geeky
I'm also quite good at giving full body massage. I once attended a certified massage school and give very good massages - especially scalp and shoulders and all those "Ah, yes, right there!" places. I'm an excellent conversationalist, having learned that the most interesting story is that from the heart of the person I'm listening to. I'm very good too around the house - being a retired engineer I can calm those sparky wires, stop that gurgly leak, quiet that squeaky hinge, freshen the kitchen by exiting the trash, wash and/or dry dish or pot. Oh and I'm also very good at intimate linguistic specialties perhaps discussed better in private!
Music has always been part of my life - I've played trumpet, the fun oompah tuba, tried the oboe for a while; and actually created a church choir. Now I prefer listening - rock is always a fun favorite but recently I have rediscovered classical music.
Food! Ah food! I do watch my food pretty carefully and just bought a bamboo steamer for my veggies, but dearly love to eat out because I am a terrible cook (burn water if I am not careful) Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese are five-star attractions for my palate.
I suppose I should include computers and the internet because the net has largely replaced school, stores and much entertainment in my life. My laptop gives me the platform to write - love to write about almost anything.
Transportation. I try to use our local TriMet buses and trains wherever I go here in Portland. It makes me so much more aware of my community, keeps me walking. (And I guess it may also serve to improve my patience in waiting! LOL)
