This is not about the superficial. There is nothing that attracts me more than engaging in great conversation with a woman of true substance: education, experience, intellect, wit, curiosity, imagination, and confidence. My search is for someone with whom to explode in laughter, sparkle in smiles, explore the depths of human expression, and delight at the great and small.
I'm a native "Maine-ah" who brings all those classic "Down East" 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."
Life is empty 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.
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 3-5 days a week. The golf links with a cart? Sure! Oh, the game will be pathetic...but fun! Ping pong, the bowling ally, mini-golf, billiards/pool, cribbage. 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.
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 time in your life, please...say, hello! I'd love to hear from you.
