My self-summary
I will realllllly need to revise and edit this, but for now..
I will start with the bracket stuff...I am looking for a real Partner, a �very few' of my likes are, Birds, Art, photography teaching it or doing it. Orchids, Nature, Eclectic surroundings and thought.

I feel I am good listener, negotiator, I am reserved, outgoing , it's things like this that make it hard for me to take myself too seriously. My humor is dry, offbeat with ( I have been told) an Ironic wit, I also like silly word plays. Talking with people I don't know is usually easy. At large social gatherings I might be a wall flower, or not... I feel in many ways I am an oxymoron. I have learned that life is full of changes ( computer management to (successful) artist / business owner). I don't live in a black & white world, there are too many shades of gray ( no not the book, there are an infinite number, even in photography). I am willing to negotiate with a partner another possible place to live. That too is part of what I am seeking...a partner that also has a willingness to negotiate not fight. Curiosity and a Sensitive and intuitive nature. I have a reasonably well developed female side, so I can go clothes shopping ,decorate, cook , Look for furniture Or talk about Drag racing ( That is,! ) as well as building stuff. Or growing orchids or raising birds ( not pets,..aviary birds AKA kitty TV !)

I feel I live in 'Catch 22', these test here are a bit difficult when I think the right answer is number5', I get a choice of a,b or c? Hmmmmm.

A bit left of center and enjoy playing the devil's advocate when more critical thinking needs to be brought into a conversation.

I have no problem with (�gentlemen� niceties') I open doors ( for men and women) walk on the outside and open car doors ( well most of the time).

I might seem a bit stiff and reserved at first but ..... that is probably just the observer. Is this safe?
Religion about ...the Golden Rule?
I will need to get back with more........for now this will have to do.

I am Curious, kind, and artistic with business sense.
What I’m doing with my life
Looking for a partner, No... really! Remodeling my house,revising my business ,raising Birds and Orchids,open to living somewhere else
I’m really good at
Business ( not including paperwork!)just about anything I have put my mind to. Artistic endeavors, Photography, Painting (birds) , Building , designing and manufaturing things. Listening and helping resolve problems. A good negotiator. A person that enjoys a win , win situation. Competitive with myself.
The first things people usually notice about me
Height, sense of humor, reasonably well dressed ( no designer stuff! There is a difference between taste and style)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I will list more later. There are a number that have been thought provoking some artistic and some just plain entertaining. One that always stands out is the "original" Planet of the Apes If you forget the 'costumes and think about what the underlying story and how and what we are doing now, it is (from my point of view) scary. Toy Story for the way they played with color and light in a digital world. 'Must love Dogs' for the problems we have with the age and the relational problems we face in a cynical world..... May be a 'chick flick' but ....... also You've Got Mail! Koyaanisqatsi,Brazil ( a semi parallel universe). Soylent green.


Music: soft Jazz, world music I like lots of different music. I am not a Music snob! .... I don't like it loud! I can still hear just fine.

Food: I don't eat red meat...Thai, Mexican, Chinese, Italian,other ethnic foods and others I haven't been introduced to.
The six things I could never do without
Hmmm... Six? Well the usual human stuff....The internet.....Ummmm I'll get back to you on this!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The world situation ! What we are doing to the planet. Ways to have less impact on the environment. How to do things differently. How greed ruins most things.. It could change! Where is my life partner...... is this the right planet? multivalent
On a typical Friday night I am
There is not necessarily a 'TYPICAL' Friday night. Too many years working for myself........ I forget .... which one is Friday?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
To clarify.. these have nothing to do with each other
I have very narrow feet!
When a doctor nearly kills you , although you show no outwards sign . You have a very different perspective on life!
You should message me if
If this makes sense, you are not abusive,Do not need to use alcohol, don't smoke and you are looking for a life partner.You also think this is scary!
