My self-summary
Introduction / Housekeeping:

-I've talked a lot about how I feel and think when describing myself and my relationship goals. This may sound serious but is intended to give you, gentle reader, an accurate idea of who I am in a way that I believe is revealing and accurate. I feel that our feelings and thoughts are the best way to determine a potential relationship match - that and chemistry of course. The only downside to this approach is that you might think I'm overly serious all the time. This isn't true: I'm often silly and playful and am writing this to put the rest of my profile in context!

-I have solutions to conquer distance. Both short and long term ones. Now available to settle anywhere and winter somewhere warm every year.

I'm on this web site to see if I can find someone that has a mutual connection with me leading to my goal of a meaningful relationship. I'm not here to use this site for chatting. I see it only as a tool. If you are serious about meeting up in person after only a very few emails/phone calls then please message me. I'd love to hear from you!

I am engaging, energetic and enthusiastic about life, most of the time.
I approach life from a position of wonderment and adventure. I yearn for greater experiences that allow me to connect with people, places, feelings, and ideas. What I'm missing is the presence of a partner to share this with.

I'm driven to get to the heart/truth of the matter, to fully understand it and my part in it even when it’s painful. I find pretence and subtext tiresome. I'm energized and love it when someone is open minded and emotionally brave and I strive to continue advancing in these areas. I work at being aware of my own issues so that I can chose to let them go and be fully present. Sometimes I’m excellent at it and sometimes I need some help. Either way I'm ready to hear respectful feedback and have developed the ability to laugh at my imperfections.

I am one of the bravest people I know. Not bungie jumping brave but the kind of brave that is willing to look at how and why I resist. The kind of brave that is about making connection. All of this is based on the fact that life is short and if I'm to embrace my creative expression of self, grow, and contribute to my community then I'll need to move past these limitation.

I am an eternal seeker, looking for the deeper meaning within each moment.

I need someone who is emotionally open and willing and able to meet me. If you are emotionally guarded or defended please pass me by.

My two most favorite quotes:

I do my thing and you do your thing.
I am not in this world to live up to your expectations,
And you are not in this world to live up to mine.
You are you, and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, it's beautiful.
If not, it can't be helped.
Fritz Perls, 1969

There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why... I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?
Robert Kennedy

I am present, available, and thoughtful
What I’m doing with my life
All that matters really is:
How well did I live
How well did I love
And how well did I learn to let go.

Having a Renaissance through learning, travel, and connection.

Would like to open a retreat somewhere warm. Want to join me?

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Connection and making Contact - The meeting of our minds, bodies, and souls without judgment, limitation, artifice, resistance, and deflection.
My place in the world and what I'm doing with the rest of my life.
How little time is left and how much I want to do with it.
How I can stop thinking and just be.
On a typical Friday night I am
There is really no such thing as a typical night for me. Besides I'd rather be cuddling on the couch with you than doing what I'm doing these days!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My biggest turn on is emotional intimacy. If you can let your guard down and meet me I'll be very touched. Not as private, but I want to live somewhere warm and by the water in the winter.
You should message me if
You recognize that geographic distance is just a temporary problem to be solved, (probably by me) besides I have a ton of airline points.

You are willing and able to meet me by bringing yourself, your feelings, your concerns, your thoughts, and your self.

You have a picture posted. As a man it not easy to get interested in just the written word.

Also after an email or two I look forward to meeting you in person so sorry, no long email correspondence.

Also if you live in Europe or somewhere warm I'm definitely interested, France, the UK, Italy, Florida, California, or the Southwest are on my list as I'm now fully available now and location wise.
The two of us
