Okay. I live happy and I know it could be better with a well matched partner. It's exciting to think about finding an ideal mate, the things to say, to see, to wonder about, to anticipate.....
I want to come into this freshly. Yep, I've answered about 400 questions, maybe I'll even go for more if that's helpful; but what's as important and perhaps more than the content of that data, is the intent that I bring, that you bring.
It's cool to be around someone who's noticeably relaxed with him-self. I figure that our book of life has perhaps half the pages turned by now and much is known; and the rest, although not yet written in there, will be governed by intent more than other previous factors. Emerson wrote (Self Reliance) : "The voyage of the best ship is a zigzag line of a hundred tacks. See the line from a sufficient distance, and it straightens itself to the average tendency. .... "
I so agree. The whole 'baggage' thing I've seen guys & gals mentioning... why approach it from a negative point of view? Why should we carry baggage ? Why not mementos to remind us of an important lesson learned, or of the courage or beauty of a special time? You get my meaning...
I find most attractive a man who is curious rather than comparing; honest and clever; having some interest or occupation, as opposed to being a couch potato. . . :)
I'm interested in our mutual well-being: good food for health, to appreciate life fully; good thoughts to feed the mind & soul; love to create some magic would sure be super !
Because I work, I need time for that during the day and to walk, read and make noise in the kitchen. If you don't already love watching Star Trek, I can convince you of its' value ...
I'm reasonable, funny, a romantic, interested in conversation, as much as quiet time. I believe that two partners operating with a common goal, with each bringing their uniqueness to the table in a constructive/loving manner can live longer, fuller, more productive lives, enriching the soil for all around them. The garden is a wonderful metaphor for life, the connectedness of each of us and to our world. Good things in, good things out. A time for cultivating, a time for harvesting. And even though there are no guarantees, we plant, we cultivate, and we expect the sun to shine, the rain to fall and what we sow to grow. And what about destiny ?
I have my own business, designing/making home decor accessories (drapes,bedding etc. - all custom work) so my schedule can be very open or totally booked depending on my current projects. While I work, I listen to books rather than read to get as much learning in as possible, always !
My town is amazing, green, and pretty much as good as it gets for the burbs. I garden on my deck, enjoy the snow/sun/rain and love waking up each day. I consider myself lucky and I know I could enjoy life even more with a good man at my side. Haven't found him yet and I do confess I haven't been looking since my last relationship (several years ago) I needed a break and have been too busy building a new life to pursue anything intimate since then.
My granddaughter set me up on this site after we had a chat one Saturday afternoon and so here I am.. guess I'm just about at that point where I'd start looking for a special someone to share this time and this beautiful life with. If you were that someone, you'd be a lucky man for sure. If I found a loving, funny and intelligent/capable man who would become a true friend, I would then be just as lucky. In the end I think that's what it's all about, to be and have a true friend. .... with benefits is a total plus !
On the light side: I'm an excellent baker (Yum!) a pretty good cook in general, anything creative, mathematical and a great problem solver.
On the more serious side I have good communication skills, good sense and will be frank as well as encouraging.
Right now I have my own business and make custom window dressings and bedding for private clients, designers and decorators... and I can't lie.... I do incredibly perfect work, if you can appreciate the fine couture and the math/designing that goes into that kind of perfection. So this allows me to work from home and enjoy more freedom so I'm loving that !
Each & every Star Trek series & movies, action movies, some drama, comedies, love martial arts movies and of course romantic comedies.
TV: Big Bang, Arrow, Elementary, Dexter, Masterchef... But I don't want to spend lots of time on Tv when I could be watching more StarTrek... !!!
Music is amazing.... dance music for dancing only; Vivaldi, Chopin, Tchaickofsky (probably misspelled) Bach etc; Amos Lee style, some Creed, Beatles, Jewel, Elvis, oldies, opera etc. Not rap, new age nor metal.
Food: I love it !! I'm Italian so.... but no meat (quit that about 18 years ago) Love fish, grilled vegetables, rice, cheese/eggs, quinoa and everything else ! Some wine, big tea drinker too.
my family, Seven
appreciation for life, interesting people, Star Trek !
If you like someone who also uses their brains/talents, and it doesn't make you want to get into a contest to prove that you're better or smarter.
If most of your initial questions aren't about sex... ( Yeah. I get that you're a guy but ...) it's putting the cart before the horse !
If you're tired of the bullshit stuff. Great. I'm not going to try to impress you with the brand name of my sneakers or sunglasses. I'm a loving, honest and bright person and I'd like to be appreciated for that.
All this said, message me if you still want to get to know me more. Let's start there.
