My self-summary
World View....I hope yours is similar to mine.
I am a very complicated guy. I work for myself and have lived outside the US most of my life. I have also lived on both coasts. I am a real mixed bag in terms or religion, politics, and lifestyle. If you are a tantric life coach or a possible commentator on Fox News ...most likely not for me.....looking for common sense sanity (leaning to either side is fine) If you wouldn't feel comfortable jumping on a plane and meeting me at a foreign airport we are probably not right together. If you take hours to do your hair...we are get the idea. I don't want to be the person who introduces you to the world....I am happy "tour guiding" you through parts of the world I know, but you have to have some aspect of the world you can teach me about. I would love to meet a well travelled lady who is well versed in another culture. I also love aspects of both urban and very remote parts of the world....I am not a suburbs kind of guy.

If you have an ex-husband who is an anchor around your neck I'm sorry I can't rescue you (tried it once before... to no avail). I love art and appreciate eduction.If you NEED a man because you can't pay your bills and don't have female friends I'm not the guy. I like strong independent women. This doesn't mean I'm not picking up dinner and don't intend to means if we are both standing on our own two feet we will cover a lot more ground......

I'm no super model but I look my age, clean up well, and am pretty fit (hey, I live in a mountain town). I like women who are slim or athletic. I am a sportsman and hope you are as well....I ski or run almost everyday...this is why I work for myself.

I have a story for everything....I often feel like I'm in the movie Big Fish. The Dos Equis man has nothing on me....except that dapper look (just too young to pull that off).
What I’m doing with my life
I travel ALOT!
I’m really good at
I'm very entrepreneurial and always working on another business venture.
I combine business and pleasure however and either ski or hit the beach everyday depending on the season....
The first things people usually notice about me
"He's not from here." Funny thing is, no matter where I am they always say the same thing. I'm the opposite of a chameleon evidently...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books by John Burdett...I own 1000s of books....most unread....but less TV and more reading recently.
Shantaram....lived in Mumbai and would often spot Greg Roberts in a local coffee shop....I could literally feel what he was writing about.....
Ethnic Food...spicy
Music: ATB, Buddha Bar, Silk Road Project
Movies: Out of Africa, I Dreamed of Africa, Donnie Brasco, Blow, Patton, Shawshank Redemption, Sexy Beast, Last Samurai, Big Fish, Kingdom of Heaven, The Wire, Notting Hill, anything by Takeshi Kitano (I often see bits of myself in these movies)
My sense or humor is exemplified by Karl Pilkington in An Idiot Abroad...l
The six things I could never do without
My Son
The Beach and the mountains (I love both)
Iced sugar....spicy chai is ideal..
Asian Food...spicy
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to keep from being bored....
Where am I traveling next....
How did I end up alone....
How to keep from being bored (STILL thinking about that one as I type...haha)
On a typical Friday night I am
Looking for a new restaurant.. Ideally ethnic food. Prefer Asian of some sort ...but can be almost anything with a lot of flavor.....Grandma's pot roast doesn't cut it.... Italian food is not's a staple like bagels and cream cheese. If you are prone to going to restaurants and afraid to try new things or moan and groan about all the things you don't like I'm better to go I have for the last 20 years.... Not a huge drinker but am happy to finish the night with a double espresso....

I am big on dinner parites but haven't had one in years as haven't been with anyone who enjoyed them.

I live more like a European in the fact that I am out and about enjoying life and not at home watching Wheel of Fortune.:). Especially if I have someone to do things with......

In reality however Friday nights can be any night for me.....I don't get up and "report" to anyone in the mornings.....
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I know for sure I am one of the most interesting men most people will ever meet....I'm absolutely positive of this. I have done everything I ever dreamed of (except having lived in Zaire....except Zaire isn't even a country anymore). BUT, I am bored to tears. I guess that's why I enjoy the third world and absolutely hate a suburban lifestyle.
You should message me if
You're exciting in your own right. You don't have alot of baggage. You have at least some experience outside the US...
