I think I'm smart and funny (who doesn't, right?). And I strive to maintain an upbeat and enthusiastic attitude toward life. Staying fit is important to me--part of the balance I need to be happy. Though I'm generally pleased with who I am, there's always room grow as a human. I've had two long-term relationships, so I know I have the capacity to maintain one. Being able to learn from my partner's life experiences is highly desirable.
A perfect match? Not likely. So, the ability to compromise is key. I gravitate toward men who are intelligent, health conscious, funny, passionate and compassionate. I prefer not to list rigid criteria as to who could be physically compatible with me because this can close a lot of doors to other possibilities, though appearance is not unimportant--handsome, stylish and fit would be great--but mostly because it shows that you take care of yourself.
P.S. All my pictures are current (taken April 2012). And 52 is my real age.

Just finished, "Muscle Boys: Gay Gym Culture" by Erick Alvarez. Interesting examination of gay body culture.
2) Espresso when I wake up.
3) The gym after work. I'm one of those nuts who actually enjoys working out.
4) Dark chocolate.
5) Sleep. I get grouchy if I don't get enough.
6) My work. It gives me a feeling of accomplishment and pride (and money to spend!).
