My self-summary
I want to meet someone and get to know them, and hopefully we will be best friends...I know what I am looking for and you should only message me if you know what you want and not afraid to express what you're looking for or need. You should not be afraid or shy of a sexy, taller mature man with longer hair. You know how to laugh with me, not at me. You want a man to date and part of your life who doesn't know everything but intelligent, educated and still wanting to learn more about life. If you're tired of dealing with all of the players, creeps, crazy and strange men out there online...contact me what do you got to lose???

The woman I am looking for is curious about the world around her. She can joke around with someone and not easily be offended. Works hard to better herself in life. She is very active and feels young at heart. She can SPELL (typos acceptable). Or can joke about her spelling. She is generally happy and she loves family and friends. The rest is all negotiable...

I am looking for a woman who is serious about dating and possible move further once we get to know each other much better. A man who knows about the ups and downs of life and just getting to know who I really am as a person...I will also want to learn more about you. I'm not looking for a booty call because I don't need OKC to help me if that's what I really wanted. I am very picky and I might be over 60 but very active and trying to loose weight that I gained in recovery from a past transplant (Jan 2015). I do love to be close, holding hands, cuddle and a good kisser is a must, no hang ups plz and this includes sexual...I do enjoy just about all outdoors activities, and will try almost anything at least once. Very adventuresome with the right person.

If I don't contact you it doesn't mean I don't want to meet you...as I said, I do find most women interesting. So let me know if something I said stirred something to at least meet in person.

Please don't be shy...especially since were not teenagers anymore...I'm not.

UPDATE: 02/07/16 I was offline for several months again...three things happened 1) Had some serious medical issues (Liver Transplant from reoccurring cancer) which I am now very much on the mend from and now in great health 2) Had a tree smash my home during the Christmas week wind storm. 3) Thought had found someone who I was interested in...and thought she was interested in me...please don't be someone you're not, I will see through it soon enough...Don't string me along and waste my time and I won't you...let's just leave it at that.

A few things you should know about me before going out on a first date – I cried like a baby several times when I watched “The Notebook” for the tenth time, I enjoy meeting the most unusual people while out and about, I think cowboy boots and black button up Levi’s could be a fashion statement, I usually judge people in the first twenty minutes after meeting them, I like to play in the snow but when I get cold I'm ready to go, wear my heart high on my sleeve some days, fish too much, work on my vehicles in the driveway, Went to Evergreen (TESC), yes I'm a 'Greener', I was raised on a ranch/farm in Oklahoma (I'm still an older rodeo cowboy in heart), I write too much in my profile because I have nothing to hide… and finally the BIG one…I wish I didn't spend so much time looking for a date/life with a simple girl who takes care of herself, smells and looks great and wants to share some quality time with a nice intelligent guy.

One quote from "Rainer Maria Rilke" best sums it up for me...
"For one human being to love another that is perhaps the most difficult of our tasks; the ultimate, the last test and proof; the work for which all other work is but preparation."

There is much more to me and its up to you if you would like to find out...did I say I am very picky with those who I choose to spend time with, I may sound selfish but I am getting older and wiser when it comes to meeting a beautiful woman who has a beautiful soul.

What I’m doing with my life
I work, I am having fun, have a home, have two small businesses and living fairly comfy at this stage of my life...I can always drive to Portland or Seattle for excitement and/or dating activities. Lived and worked in Olympia for 18 years and recently worked in Vancouver for four years and I still visit a multitude of close friends quite often. My work is in the health education field, mostly contract work for different state and tribal agencies throughout the Pacific Northwest. I continue to volunteer with a youth organization teaching some craft classes with foster care youth when I find time. I support any organization that works with kids. Our children are our future. I am a very humble person who is lucky to have such a wonderful and an even fuller life with wonderful friends and a large local native and spiritual family with a multitude of things to do over the course of the year.
I’m really good at
I make and play indigenous instruments out of local scrap pieces of Red Cedar, salvaged or recycled wood. I do record indigenous music and if you’re lucky I will entice you playing one of my many flutes.

The first things people usually notice about me
I do have very long hair and some women are very prejudice about my longer hair. The length of the hair doesn't make or break me as a man. Anyway physical attraction is part of who we are on the outside, sad that some people don't take the time to find out who we really are on the inside...FYI...I do participate in Native American Ceremonies where traditionally I am not allowed to cut my hair...Creator and my spirituality is extremely important to me. So if long hair is a deal breaker then I am not for you

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite "Day Tripper" by Fabio Moon, which I highly recommend, I can't get enough of it. It is in Comic form which is different but I really like how everything comes together...I think it is an awesome book about life and everyone can relate to many of the different chapters of life...I really love the deep meaning and can relate to many different spiritual aspects of the book. At this time I am reading "thirteen moons" by Charles Frazier, it is a book about the Cherokee. I just bought the book "Manopause: Guide to Surviving His Changing Life" by Lisa Friedman Bloch, Kathy Kirtland Silverman...it was highly recommended by a woman friend of mine...looking forward to reading it.

Movies I liked...City of Angels, Meet Joe Black, Legends of the Fall, The Matrix Trilogy, Godfather Trilogy, Lord of the Rings Trilogy...Recently I've seen most of the movies up for awards this year...

I do like to attend theater ("Phantom of the Opera" is my favorite)
I like most music, my exception is Hard Core RAP that degrades women in the lyrics, or speaks of crime and killing. I've been a Dj playing for a wide age and diverse crowd for special events and conventions for the past 25 years up and down the West Coast...but I am slowly retiring to find more time for someone special. Being from the classic rock era I love most classic rock...While growing up in Oklahoma and my family listened to country music.

Love to cook southern food, I do know how to grill and BBQ but what man doesn't or do they really know how. I catch lots of fish so I smoked and fix several fish recipes which I have found very healthy for me.
The six things I could never do without
Family
True Friends
Love for Life
Spirituality
Fishing
My old beat up 4x4 Truck (love wondering off the path)
First and foremost my recovery
I spend a lot of time thinking about
At this time in life...HAPPINESS and wondering if I will ever find a real TRUE LOVE again. Life's losses always reminds me, you better hold tightly or speak often to the ones you love the most, you never know what will happen or if this will be the last time you embrace them...tomorrow is never a given, it's a gift.

The importance of my family, especially being an example for my 3 children and now 3 grandchildren... Always thinking about my part on earth and how to make the world a better place for my grandchildren. If I am really lucky, put a smile on someone's face that is struggling with life or a lot worse off today than myself.

"To laugh often and love much... to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to give one's self...this is to have succeeded."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
On a typical Friday night I am
Hoping someone on Friday has a better idea then I do...spending time with someone special, not my dog Khassie... Did I mention I am spontaneous at times, I have an open schedule a majority of the week, so it is easy to plan time or find time to do things in a minutes notice.

I truly miss watching a movie with someone special; sitting close, holding hands, cuddle...more if applicably agreed too, what a start to a great week-end...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Here goes...I have a family nickname I am embarrassed for others to find out about.
You should message me if
You know what you want in life and not afraid to express what you need. You like what you read in my profile, as crazy as it seems. You're not afraid of a sexy, taller mature part Native American man with longer hair. You know how to laugh with me, not at me. You want a man in your life who doesn't know everything but intelligent, educated and still wanting to learn more about life.

IMPORTANT, If your older then me and not very physically active in your life or you make me feel old while were together...probably not the person for you...I'm not an old man just because I'm over 60 and a grandfather...if you ever get to know me you will find, I work hard and play even harder.
