My self-summary
I swear I do not know what is up with you gals. I have been on this site for a couple of years or so, and I am seeing many of the same gals I saw when I first signed on. Now either this site suffers from that web disease called, deception, or, many of you ladies are not really looking for what you say you are. I, for one, am such a decent catch that I should already be in the fry pan, sizzling away! I can imagine that many of the other lonesome males on this site most likely are also. I am not saying we are perfect of course, everyone has their issues, but you know, so do you. But. Again, I for one, have not even been contacted, well I take that back, there have been three emails over my time on here. Not very good results considering the time frame involved, an average of one every 6.6 months. I am guessing I could stand by the door into Fred Meyers and do better by at least one.

So, what is up ladies? Is it my age? I do have a bit of experience, I will give you that. But, you know I am most likely more active than many of you. I most certainly have that sense of adventure many of you say you are searching for. I am diverse in my interests, again a commonly asked for trait on here. I have and, most likely will continue to travel to interesting places, again... And, back to the age thing, there is no guarantee that you will be still kicking tomorrow. So, heck, I might actually out live you, regardless of your younger years! There are no guarantees in this life, you just have to seize each moment and hope for the best. So, I would hope that you would keep that in mind when perusing these profiles and not write us older gentlemen off out of hand. It has been said, and is true, “many a fine tune has been played on an old fiddle.” There is a reason why a Stradivarius is so darn expensive!

So, come on ladies, open up a bit and give us guys a chance. You know, shopping does not mean you have to buy, but if you don't shop (not talking about all you window shoppers here) you never find that one thing you are looking for. So, send out those greetings, converse, have a coffee in a public place. I would, almost, guarantee you will at least find a new friend. Loneliness is a self perpetuating disease. Help stomp it out!

Alright back to the regularly scheduled profiles.

Here we sit, our hands brushing over the keys of plastic, sending words out to what we hope are the like-minded people in our world. We long for companionship in a world that we feel has abandoned us for some reason. Oh, we have contact, of a non-personal nature, with others daily but those only add to the loneliness when we go home. We wonder why a normal person, with a life so full of things, feels so alone. Is it something we have done? I do not really know about you, but damn, I want to change this. I want to feel the warmth of a human touching my hand, kissing my lips, making me feel special.

I am physically still viable. I get out and hike, backpack, packraft, motorcycle and bicycle. I still enjoy the physical company of a woman and love to explore new dimensions. I am not physically ugly by most standards. Time is a beast and has taken its told on facial features but the body still holds on. I have the things that keep me comfortable and I want for nothing from the coffers of others. I am retired so my time is mine to spend as I choose. Hell, on paper I seem like a damn good catch, what is the issue? And you, are you a catch?

What the heck am I looking for? I am in search of a lady of substance. I wish to meet someone to explore life with, mentally and physically. I wish I could find someone who would rather spend a rainy, cold day in bed than go to work and make more money to buy more things. I need someone who finds pleasure in hiking ten miles through the Alaskan backcountry to spend a long weekend at a hidden cabin. I long for someone who is actually interested in me, her and us as a unit. I want someone I find attractive, mentally and physically. I know the physical thing, but it is necessary to long term contentment. I want to long for you when you are not present, and crave you when you are. It is perhaps wrong to ask for such things at my age, but I do anyway. I want someone who has not just given up on life and her appearance; I have not.

She will be special in today’s world of that I am sure. That is why I am putting this on the web so as to get a wide base of ladies to read this. Many will find it to demanding, others will not want anything to do with me and the others, Well they will find it just does not fit what they are looking for in their life. I am hoping though that there will be one lady, who will read this and think, I have found my man. That is all I need, one very special lady.
What I’m doing with my life
Living it the best I can, with the tools I have.
I’m really good at
I suppose that is defined by who the one judging me is. I can do many things, but am a master at none.
The first things people usually notice about me
Everyone has things they like or don't like, therefore I would think that they look at different things initially. But, if I had to make a guess, I would say that I don't look all of my 60 years I suppose. At least I get that comment most often, so I will go with that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
What we think is great today, will most likely be surpassed tomorrow by something new. So, I would have to say my favorite items has a tendency to change as time goes by and I'm exposed to the new of the world.
Six things I could never do without
A heart that beats with expectations.
The outdoors.
The Ability to dream large.
Health to carry me though to the end of my active life.
The ability to complete my dreams.
Money to meet my needs.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How man is destroying the only world he has and refuses to acknowledge it, and therefore make changes that might save it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually continuing what I do on Thursdays; each day is mine to spend as I chose so no day seems more special to me than another. Perhaps that is why I am on this site; hoping to make one day seem more special than another.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Some things should be saved for the special folks in our lives.
You should message me if
You would like to see what lies behind door four. If you are relatively fit and adventurous and think a bit outside of the box.
The two of us
