My self-summary
High Energy

I don’t mind being the oddball, taking an unpopular viewpoint or making my own way. I’m not anti-social, just “differently social”. I love getting together with people, cooking for people, and dancing. I enjoy traveling, hiking, staying in shape and reading. I eat very well and do most of my own cooking. I am a very healthy eater. I also enjoy a certain amount of alone time or “cave time”.

One problem I keep running into is finding partners who can keep up with my energy level. I also dance Ballroom, CW, Latin, Tango 2-5 nights a week. If you don't know how and want to learn, contact me. I used to teach dancing. I was also an elementary teacher and have a lot of patience.

I like independent strong women who like men.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now, I believe it is my privilege and obligation to enjoy my life, to explore the what and whys of my gifts and to use them for my own benefit and the benefit of everyone else. I am terribly curious and since I am retired now I can indulge that curiosity however I want. I am way over-educated anyway and enjoy finding out about many things and satisfying my curiosity.

I work part time and I can work any hours I want from any location, so I am free to travel and do fun things. I maintain several websites that are about my passions.
I’m really good at
.... researching questions that I find interesting. I end up really discovering things that are important to me and also a lot of useless information. I am also a great cook and enjoy cooking for an intimate dinner for two or a large group of 150. I was a 4th grade teacher and am very good at teaching things, including dancing. It is the most fun you can have with your clothes on.
The first things people usually notice about me my size. I am tall and lean. Most people who spend time with me usually notice my intensity.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read constantly. Sometimes it is just mysteries, or biographies, sometimes it is medical or personal research. I read more than two books a week. My music tastes are varied from classical (Puccini is my favorite) to CW, classic rock, latin and especially easy listening jazz. I cook (and ferment) a wide variety of food. I am an inveterate carnivore. I rarely see movies (but would love to with the right partner) and watch just a little TV. I do try to follow the Broncos and would follow the Rockies if I had cable.
The six things I could never do without
Cooking utinsils
the internet
wonderful places to travel to
getting to know interesting people
sensuous woman in my life
dance places
coffee in the morning
Rules like this one that I can break :)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to improve myself, my world and my surroundings.
On a typical Friday night I am
Dancing at Cowboys in Colorado Springs and maybe going to the Broadmoor for more dancing with the right partner or dancing at one of the places in Denver.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not going there. It’s called private for a reason.
You should message me if
A Real Man

Knows when to hold you and when to scold you
Knows when to caress you and when to spank you
Knows when to hold you up and when to hold you down
Knows how to change a baby and a tire
Not only eats quiche, but knows how to bake it
Knows how to make himself smell good and how to work himself hard enough to smell like sweat
Doesn’t need to prove he’s a real man because he already is one on his own terms
Looks you in the eye, has a firm handshake and a ready smile
Makes sure under any circumstance that his word is his bond
Knows when to be in charge and when to defer to your wisdom, skills or intuition
Knows when to romance you and when to take what he wants or give you what you really need
Knows that moderation in all things is important to himself and everyone who surrounds him
Takes time every day to praise you and be grateful to you and all the gifts in his life
Takes time every day to pray, meditate or reflect on his life
Has real goals that he strives to reach
Knows that the greatest legacy he can leave this world is fulfill his own destiny and to help you and his children fulfill theirs

If this piece creates a “lovely gut reaction” for you (the words of a friend) perhaps we need to talk. This piece expresses how I really feel. I try to live up to what I have written.

I am tall, educated, well read, well traveled and well experienced. I love outdoor things, traveling in my RV, dancing, entertaining (I’m a gourmet cook) and have a nice circle of friends who are very accepting. I meet others well. I don’t smoke/drug/drink
