My self-summary
I never wake up on the wrong side of the bed and believe being gracious to others is a desirable quality that all of us should strive for..........and it takes so little effort.

Am a creative problem solver, , adventurous, curious and physically fit. I am an affectionate and passionate man and bring a nice mix of manliness and sensitivity. 

Have often been called a man's man, which I take to be a woman's man who brings the good qualities of being a man to all of his relationships.

Particularly enjoy any activity which gets me outdoors but am just as comfortable with all of the things we do indoors.

Grew up in Montana, lived in California and of course now here. In each I am comfortable and adaptable to my environment.

I would love to be connected to a passionate woman who teaches me about her passions but who also teaches me something new about life. I am most interested in connecting with someone who would be my life's partner. This takes time, patience and perseverance by both. I am motivated to achieve that.
What I’m doing with my life
I work for a local school district managing the construction department. I encourage my team to think of ourselves as educators - we are just at a different place on the continuum from Principals and teachers. What this means is our work is just as important to the achievement of those kids whose parents have entrusted their education to us.

Beyond that, i live my life each day trying to be considered and well reasoned in my choices and actions.
I’m really good at
I am a creative problem solver and being a "man's man" I can take on and solve physical challenges really well. I am self taught in many ways and am always eager to take on a new challenge
The first things people usually notice about me
Sounds silly but how thick and full my head of hair is.........always has been, always will be
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Ok maybe I am not discerning enough, but I find there is so much in each of these categories that I like. Suffice it to say I am not super critical. But I don't eat junk food
Six things I could never do without
Ok there may be way more than six so I am going to just list a few:
Human connections
My children
Working out at the gym
sleep (although I never get enough)
Sunlight and Rain ( each has their own beautiful qualties)
Ok that's six......I could go on
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I tend to get really focused on what I'm focused on. So I guess its the thought du jour that occupies my thoughts.
On a typical Friday night I am
Thinking prospectively:

Stopping to visit her - sometimes with a bottle of wine, sometmes not - because it seems too long since I've seen her and I miss her. It's her element and where she thrives. She is excited and animated - I love being there wiith her when she is like that. Tonight I brought Cien sonetos de amor - I am going to read her the love poetry of Pablo Neruda
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am willing to admit that like all of us I have foibles and inconsistencies. I try hard to make up for them.
You should message me if
You appreciate a man who brings a good mix of positive qualities and who is open and available and you are looking for a real relationship with all of the challenges that come with getting to know someone new and developing trust (along with the excitement of the physical attraction and falling in love phase!). I guess I believe love is an an odds game, and the more people you meet the higher your odds are of finding someone you click with. But trying to find the right person by looking at compatibility on a website only goes so far. What it really takes is that spark and connection you feel when making eye contact and that first verbal exchange face-to-face.
The two of us
