My self-summary
'The Invitation' by Oriah, may say it all, and better than I can say it. You can look it up.
Can appreciate the difference in people; their lifestyle, ideas and things they do.
I'm former professor and business owner looking to meet an intelligent woman. I'm athletic, very fit, and active in many sports. I've been hard working and ambitious most of my adult life. I remain optimistic under most conditions. I accept others as they are. I'm not looking to change anyone or put limits on their life. I feel that I'm very understanding and accepting of differences in others. I grew up in a blue collar town and neighborhood and therefore somewhat street smart.
My life is uncluttered, uncomplicated and I want to keep it that way. I'm quietly outgoing and upbeat. At this point in my life I don't have to sell anything, including myself.
My approach to life; No matter how much you know and how many things you're capable of doing, there is something new that you can learn from each and every person you meet.
I do read the profiles and look for the meaning behind the words.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm enjoying my life and not looking to change it much, just looking to add to it. My children are grown and I've successfully managed my career. There is so much to do that I won't start listing everything here. Let's wait until we talk to find the things we can enjoy together. I have no set agenda. Open to new ideas and adventures.
This I know; Happiness and joy comes from within. So not searching elsewhere for it. Just looking to share some of my life.
I’m really good at
: I was very good at my profession and enjoyed teaching and lecturing. Do well in many sports, instructed and coached a few. Fairly good at dancing; ballroom,latin, swing etc, but do it for enjoyment and entertainment not competition.
I can fix about anything except a broken heart.
I'm good at cooking and baking healthful and tasty foods. I'm very particular about the quality and preparation of my food.
I've also worked as a fitness trainer for 19 years, dealing with all ages, all sizes and many problems. I enjoyed helping others feel better and achieving their goals.
The first things people usually notice about me
Eyes and smile, so I've been told
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Many. Does it matter which ones?
Six things I could never do without
1.My 4 children. who are The best part of my life
2.the rest
3.doesn't
4.really
5.matter
6.that much

7. Maybe You;
I spend a lot of time thinking about
O tempera. O mores.
How fortunate I've been and how good my life has been.
How it's impossible to be bored.
Dubito ergo sum.
How people say they are open minded or nonjudgmental but every other sentence implies otherwise.
How to keep it all simple
On a typical Friday night I am
At the ballroom or club, doing salsa, latin, swing dancing etc.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I told, it wouldn't be private anymore. Would it?
You should message me if
If you want to talk
If you have any questions
If you want a dance partner.
If your looking for what's in the words of Carole King's song; "You've Got a Friend"
Not looking to be in a rush
You believe The match % and the pictures don't tell it all.
I will try to respect the parameters you've set in your profile.
Thanks for reading all of this profile.
POSTSCRIPT: Now that I've taken this trip down the 'Yellow Brick Road' I'm expecting to wake up with a bump on my head.
