After many years of doing fairly well in Los Angeles, in the music business primarily, I gave it all up, and everything I owned, about 5 years ago and have been traveling the coast ever since with my two 20 yr old cats (including spending 18 months completely alone on a small horse ranch in the mountains). Am done with corporate rule and have changed my life priorities even though it has cost me everything financially. I've seen too many friends work their whole lives, acquiring lots of 'stuff', then pass on without ever really enjoying much of life's simple pleasures. ..the ones I consider important now. We're here for the briefest of moments.
I'm very liberal about everything, not at all religious, and am looking for something rather outside the box..or maybe it's what most men are looking for but don't really say...but I'm going to be honest about it. There are many losses that come with aging but what I miss most is being close to a woman in all ways ... but find most dating sites just too typical and repetitive where anyone can say anything as long as it sounds good. I could have done that but don't have the patience to weed through all the similarities and niceties...kind of like looking at a hallmark card...nice, pretty, but not very realistic.
I'm as comfortable in a five star restaurant as I am in the middle of a dense forest. Both appeal to me but I'm starting to appreciate the forest more than the restaruant. Animals and travel are probably my biggest passions. There isn't much I can offer in the way of financial stability but the woman I'm looking for doesn't make that her priority.
I'm looking for an intelligent woman who subscribes to most of the the things I've said about myself and is in touch with life and her own femininity and sexuality.
Am looking for a casual or serious, long term relationship...whichever it turns out to be. She also should ...
be kind, warm hearted, still passionate, understand animals, unconventional without trying to be, demure and outgoing, and innocent and sexual at the same time.
Most people live their lives in a state of restriction and contradiction. I'm looking for those that have learned to say yes to life and are open to discovery and who pursue their instincts and passions.
I've learned, with the help of some eastern philosophy, that once you name what you want, you lose much of the ability to reach it.
You'll ignore paths that could take you there inadvertently by not exposing yourself to things that you don't consider part of your formula.
It's simple really: Expose yourself to anything you may find pleasing because, if nothing else, it will teach you what doesn't work. And...to say you've done that in the past and it didn't work, is moot. It's a numbers game.
Life is made up of moments and experiences and in the end, the most regrettable things we think about are the things we didn't do. Happy or pleasurable moments in life are the only things of value.
Don't ignore things that may be pleasing in other ways because they don't fit a particular agenda. Agendas change as we learn ...and learning is endless.
Just a thought.
Looking forward to you.
There are always some dangers in saying yes but they don't compare with the distant regrets of saying no.
Life is a banquet and most people are starving.
Set your life on fire and seek those who fan your flames.
