I'm a native "Maine-ah" who brings all those classic "DownEast" core values with him: honesty, straightforwardness, ingenuity, a dry wit, and a deep twinkle in his eye, but most of all a solid strength of character and trustworthiness that is the very essence of true "Men from Maine."
This is not about the superficial. Make no mistake...There is nothing that attracts me more than engaging in great conversation with a woman of depth and intelligence, wit, and confidence. My search is for someone with whom to explode in laughter, sparkle in smiles and delight at the great and small; and at the same time, someone to admire and to cherish at the greatest depths of our relationship.
Life is an empty journey when not shared. Together there is great joy at the theater, especially musical theater, museums...I love the beach at sunset, historic waterfronts, renewed historic districts, poking through second-hand shops, antique malls, the quiet of lakeside, the serenity of a cruise ship in the warmth of the Caribbean...Let's explore your favorite places!..deep intimacy and affection...so much more. It's all about "us" - not all about me... I haven't done it all, I don't know it all, I'm not always right, and I'll admit it when I'm wrong. Don't believe me? I hope you'll be intrigued enough to explore further, because it's absolutely true.
I love to swim. I'm in an in-door pool at least 5 days a week. The golf links with a cart? Sure! Oh, the game will be pathetic...but fun! Ping pong, the bowling ally, cribbage, You get the idea. There was a day when I was an outstanding softball pitcher and first baseman...but...today? my knees just aren't cooperating as much as I'd like. Yet, life holds so much for us both to enjoy that doesn't include hiking the Appalachian Trail.
I'm nearly two years into a complete lifestyle change that is amazing! Just look at the photos on this site. The most recent is the "profile photo" here, with the plum colored shirt. Among those photos is over 60 pounds - gone! ..... and more drops away, a little at a time, each month!
Here's all I ask...Please, be over everything that needs to be over...really over... Allowing the tragedies of the past to take away the joys of the future just seems completely wrong to me. If, you're emotionally and spiritually ready to explore a truly great relationship in your life, please, just say, hello!
I'd love to hear from you.
