My self-summary
Prepare yourself for verbosity!

Just let your love flow like a mountain stream
And let your love grow with the smallest of dreams
and let your love show and you'll know what I mean
It's the season"

That's one of my favorite romantic songs of all time. *grin* Shame I don't have a lady with whom to slow dance to that song. Ever been making dinner in the kitchen and have the man you're seeing take you in his arms and dance to the slow song on the radio/CD? I do that, even if you have flour on your nose. Ever have a man give you a rose "just because"? I do that. Do you like to reciprocate romantic gestures? I hope so.

Being slightly-over-50 and it'd be nice to have someone whom I can date on a regular basis, and maybe come to an "understanding"? I don't care what you do, as long as you have a job of some kind and it's full time. I'm not even the jealous type if you make more than I do. Age? Chronological age doesn't matter; it's how you conduct yourself. Honesty, Integrity and Humor are three big pluses in my book.

Looks? This is a tough one, isn't it? I have no hard-and-fast rule on that. I'm not bad looking, but I'm no Tom Cruise or Mel Gibson. I'm me. Accept me as me or move on. Ditto for you. If I can't accept you as you, I'll move on myself. But for you; cute works. And inner beauty that shines through. You can be anything from slender as a willow wand to hourglass shaped figures (this will sound crude, but please don't have a butt in the next zipcode, OK?).

I ride a motorcycle, too. Actually, it's my steroid scooter, a 2005 Suzuki Burgman 650 that I enjoy riding rain or shine. No, it's not a Harley. *shrugs* It's my ride and I'm proud of it. There should be a picture posted along with this. It's no Vespa, that's for sure!

There are many things I like to do; wander Saturday Market, bookstores, libraries. Once in a great while, the museum or a gallery, but only for short periods. I can discuss most literature and yes, art. I'm not really into politics and religion is my own business as well as yours. I respect whatever your belief may be, and I expect the same. Visiting the Oregon coast, of course, gets the nod as well as just beautiful countryside.

However, I'm not an outdoor nut, gymrat, or anything other super-exercise enthusiast. Hey, if you wanna drag me along, that'd be fine, but expect indoor recreation as well. *wink* I think a lot of the reason I don't do that outdoor stuff is lack of company. I don't "do" the outdoor male-bonding thing. If I want to bond with guys, we'll go to a pub or even just sit around at home, watching vids. Going out into the wilderness, shooting a large wild animal for consumption just doesn't do it for me.

Anyhoo...I have an interesting sense of humor that varies from wacky to snarky, laced with colorful euphemisms. I also enjoy chocolate and sweets of many kinds (a weakness, I know), I can cook and do know to leave the seat down! *chuckles* Without writing a novel of me ("Magical Me" Kudos for the person who gets that reference) would take too long, but I think you get the idea. If you want to get to know this quirky, romantic, chunky guy, send me a note. I'd like to hear from you!

Live long and prosper!

I am thoughtful, quiet, and quirky
What I’m doing with my life
Whatever I want. :-) Enjoying it, mostly.
I’m really good at
A lot of different things, really. It would depend on the situation.
The first things people usually notice about me
My green eyes and that I'm a smartass.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
(a) As I'm a sci-fi/fantasy junkie right now I'm reading the various Star Trek novels that I have scattered on my shelves . However, I loved Dan Brown's DaVinci Code. I read for entertainment, mainly though I do love history stuff. Right now, my passion is pirates and their life and times.

(b) The Indiana Jones Trilogy (#4 was meh), Kingdom of Heaven, The 5th Element and the Firefly TV series, yep. Recently saw "Night at the Museum"; not a stupendously great flick, but worth the time to see. And strangely enough, I found "Stardust" to be an endearing flick.

(c) I'm hearing impaired, so vocal music is sometimes difficult for me to understand. That being said, Celtic/Celtic Rock/Folk are great, but my tastes are pretty eclectic otherwise. No [c]rap please. I also like classical rock and classical music. Not really into country and there's some metal music that makes me cringe. I'm always open to new experiences and new music, though.

(d) Want to send me home in a hurry? Cook some veggies til they're tastelessly limp. Superman has kryptonite; I have tasteless veggies. However, I do love Italian and Chinese, as well as standard steak & potatoes.
Six things I could never do without
My motorcycle, books, computer, good friends, my honor, my sense of self.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Books I'm reading, what's gone on during the day, friends, whatever pops into my mind.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging at home either playing on my computer or watching vids
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Is that I'm unusually weird. But then, I live in the Portland area.
You should message me if
You're looking for friends and don't mind a guy who marches to the beat of his own drum and can write more than "Hi, I love your profile!"
The two of us
