My loves are family, great friends, a wonderful woman, good food and wine. I'm regarded as funny, ethical and moral, however add to this...a little on the "nutty" (good nutty) side.
It has long been known that "Life is meant to be an adventure." I live in Baja (a few miles south of Rosarito, and just 29 miles from the San Diego border), in a most beautiful villa, in a gorgeous community called Medio Camino. My home is mere feet from the ocean, something that my two dogs are thrilled about. I do come to San Diego to see clients (semi-retired), and to shop.
Seeking an intelligent woman, low maintenance, non-controlling, is in good physical and mental health, deeply caring, loves to laugh, hold hands and, above all, is a great kisser. You have down-to-earth, genuine people as your dearest friends. Hopefully you can enjoy a man who, on a rare occasion, smokes a very good cigar (always outdoors), and uses Scope immediately thereafter.
Turn-offs: Unavailable regarding emotional intimacy; exposed tattoos; excessive drinking, cigarettes, two most often used words-"I" and "me"; knowing their doctors' and pharmacy phone numbers by heart; and...carrying past baggage to fill a Louis Vitton steamer trunk (i.e. complaining about one's exes).
First meeting over coffee, tea, cocoa or warm milk.
What I’ve learned:
I have learned quite well that there are four essential factors that the meeting of two people can fairly soon determine- laughter, communication, respect and chemistry. And it is this "foursome", meaning that so long as ALL four are present, then the chances of this being our "last rodeo" is likely.
The journey seems to be about pouring approximately 120 years of life's experiences into one cauldron, and then stepping back to pray that the ingredients are truly compatible. Not so easy, eh Grasshopper?
For many years I have been a professional speaker. While I understand that insofar as fear is concerned, most people's greatest fear, after that of dying, is public speaking. Apparently that gene never got to me as that is what comprises one of my greatest passions.
I'm good at taking out the trash, however to be most candid, organization, neatness and living without material and mental chaos is how I started a very successful information management training company.
