Now that I've been on here for a bit, let me say some stuff up front so as not to waste anyone's time. ;~>
I'm not looking for quick hook-ups, bi-men, polyamory, guys looking for "cougars."
Currently, my favorite activities are diving, photography, and hiking (fourth attempt to summit Mt Shasta was in June). I think I'm a bit of an adrenaline junkie.
INFJ on Myers-Briggs scale. Locally active in a couple different non-profits, and prefer to be outdoors on the weekend. However, I lived in SF for 25 years (last 15 in the Haight) and do sorely miss all that city has to offer (museums, small venue rock shows, North Beach). So trips to the Bay area are high on my activity list too.
Love to read, and don't get enough time to do so. Sci-fi to The Economist. Activities include scuba diving, hiking, photography (digital and film). Not the golfer type.
Friendships are extremely important to me, and I include among mine some wonderful men with whom I've never slept!
I love a ribald, yet kind sense of humor in a person. Sense of ethics are also of great importance. I steer clear of people with anger management issues. Prefer to stay in the moment, and not dwell on negative possibilities.
Card-carrying member of the ACLU.
I am adventurous, curious, and intelligent.
And I have a poo-mutt I rescued in Loreto, MX in 2013.
