My self-summary
Once you get past my charm, good looks, intelligence and sense of humor, I think it is my modesty that stands out most.

Seriously, I am glad you made it here so give yourself a congratulations, and I mean that. You chose to move forward after an emotionally difficult time that you likely hope you never recall again why it even ended. We all do that. I know that instead of getting back out there, many just drop out of the game entirely after a serious relationship, finding themselves solo and unwilling to take the risk again for fear of yet another heartache. For me, I don't want to swear off living just yet because a life lived in fear of love as you already know, is a life not really lived. I think this puts us in the top 50% of the resilient in our everyday lives (ask me why!). I hope this next journey of yours, and of mine, will be the real thing after all. But I realize that every one of us are as unique as a fingerprint. No one is exactly like you or has exactly the same innumerable stories both happy and sad, about reaching a vintage from the 1950s or 60s! I am glad you decided to share your stories and your next adventure with me. If the second half of my life works out as well as the first did, I can't wait to live it.

I have been adventurous and youthful all my life. I think and act like that. I have been carded twice (seriously, not in passing) in the last two weeks. Hooray for being a redhead and avoiding the sun all my life! And yes, that means I avoid direct sunlight (vampirical I suppose!) and wear a hat when outdoors... always!

I am looking for a best friend and companion as well as soul mate. Just being honest here. I am a committed companion, not an occasional acquaintance you wish to see once every 2 weeks after you have spent all the other time with friends and family. I don't make a lot of friends, for intellectual reasons. Maybe you already get that. My partner is my companion. I have always been that way. Maybe you are the one who would like to have a friend you can really talk to and share a real life with. I am also sociable around your family and happy to visit once in while, go to celebratory dinners and such, don't get me wrong. But there has to be time for just two as well.
What I’m doing with my life
I have been an entrepreneur since 6th grade and am currently an independent product developer.
I’m really good at
I have restored hundreds of vehicles back to new or almost new condition, bought and sold tens of thousands of items I either rebuilt or designed, built and created myself including furniture, mobile homes and multi-story houses, spent 25 years as a high end designer, manufacturer and employer even longer. I currently invent animatronics and other special effects including a 10' tall fire ball shooting fully animated robot with onboard 50 caliber machine gun emulation, architect, long time moto-x and off road racer, professional top 40 DJ for years, singer, multi patented inventor, accomplished musician with multiple instruments, author, international trade show founder/organizer, masters level speaker and carry a black belt in Tae Kwon Do I received at almost 40. I really like to ride bicycles, day hike, wine taste, cook and picnic. I spent more than 20 years learning Christianity and can speak on nearly any level about theology, but no longer subscribe to organized religion for lack of factual proof of authenticity.
The first things people usually notice about me
Red hair and fearless in social settings.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books, Thin Air and Thin Air II.
Movies, One From The Heart and The Bodyguard
Music, Top 40 and Country
Tri Tip Burritos, Sizzling Asada Fajitas
Six things I could never do without
Never saw this question before! Okay,
Bar B Q Grill
Hand and Shop Tools For Projects

The Beach
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to make things work/function/look better.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing after a long week with some wine and a good film.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I would like to be able to read people better so I could stick my foot in my mouth. Less.
You should message me if
I don't get into narcoleptics, those who are uninspired, unmotivated or unimaginative.

If you bring your IQ, I will have a great time meeting with you.

I have been writing the rules for decades and am usually the person in charge when things go awry and have no problem tasking others with direction in times of confusion and chaos.

I feel any day spent without laughter is a day deducted off your life and a day spent fishing is a free day that doesn't go against your total number of sunrises.

I shrink from no challenge and I will be the conundrum of alpha male and dandy that you will find who prefers women who are the essence of female. Tom boys need not apply.

If you are looking to "hang out"/ a casual one night rendezvous or are not ready to have a deep relationship, then just move on. I am for sure not your type.

If you aren't interested in intellectual interaction and culture then we are probably not going to mix well.

If you are afraid of intimacy and closeness, we are clearly not meant to be.

If you are happiest being around a man that is confident and strong enough to be heard as well as metrosexual, then message me. If you don't know what metrosexual is, then please do a google search of it first. We are the last ones on earth interested in same sex, regardless of how we dress. No man intimidates or attracts us sexually.

If you live to be with your children and extended family every possible moment instead of being with your SO, then we're not a good fit.
The two of us
