My self-summary
I'm a 65 yr.old guy who is still somewhat boyish and active and love to be spontaneous. Nonetheless I love reading, art films, keeping up with the times in terms of politics, human interest events, seeing plays, going to interesting museums, listening to classical, folk and ethnic music in general, going to out-door fairs and festivals. Love to spend time in nature and getting away from the city sometimes -- flipping coins at every fork in the road and seeing where we end up in 6-8 hours? I'm somewhat depthful and would appreciate meeting someone who, like me, is patient, very thoughtful, has a real sense of fair play, who is loyal and willing to have meaningful communication so there's no possibility of taking each other for granted. Seeking a monogamous long-term (m word is OK) relationship with a woman who is good-natured and whose kindness comes from the heart.
What I’m doing with my life
I was born in 1952 AD. ...............And wouldn't mind living a looong time since I love life!! So, I keep praying that the guy up there is V--E--R--Y S--L--O--W at math!
I’m really good at
I'm a great listener. I'm very resourceful. I am a true got your back cheerleader for my friends and family when help is needed.. I'm exceedingly loyal and reliable and will go the extra mile for you when you need a favor or advice. I'm great at encouraging others when they start to falter. I'm become excited by new and interesting endeavors or traveling experiences - whether of the mind or activities in general..
The first things people usually notice about me
At a first glimpse people notice my blue eyes and smile. Then, my friendliness, enthusiasm and openness
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movie-wise: I tend towards foreign films because the plots often mimic real life and the characters are dealing with real day-to-day life situations in ways that American films often do not. Examples of such films are: Tampopo, Wings of Desire, Pay It Forward, Seven Pounds, I am Sam, Bread and Chocolate, El Norte, Swept Away, The Life of Others, Cinema Paradiso, Love and Anarchy, Left Luggage, The Round-up, Life is Beautiful, My Life as a Dog and its French equivalent- Le Grande Chemin (the Grand Highway)- and most recently three very moving films, Searching For Sugarman (an absolute must-see), The Last Quartet and an East German film called Barbara, a film not unlike the theme in Life of Others. If you've never experienced a foreign movie then read some reviews or better yet ask a friend who's seen them and ask them to include you - and, after you get over the difficulty of reading sub-titles, I know that you will find these type of movies extremely enriching! A 2/27/2017 update: thank goodness Moonlight won the best picture award!
Six things I could never do without
My sense of compassion and caring. My ability to appreciate and to soak up life. Nature and my love for animals. I love my curiosity about people and ideas and life and ways of thinking about things that I'm not quite familiar with. My friends. My sympathies for the underdog. And probably a whole bunch of other stuff that will come to me later.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Hmmm. Now what DO I think about? I know. Like the song in "Oliver" ------ "I think I'd better think it out again." OK, so while in India, why did the tourist totally avoid going to see the Taj Mahal ? Because he suffered from Agraphobia! (Now you KNOW I must be having too much time on my hands.!)
On a typical Friday night I am
I am usually strolling the streets of Paris, listening intently to flamenco music in a small bistro in Barcelona or Tossa del Mar, walking and enjoying Trevi Fountain, singing along with the other folks in an Irish pub in Cannemara or Galway, driving south on Highway 1 along the California coastline, joining a drumming circle in Kenya, playing along on the didgeree-do in Melbourne, and for relaxation, sometimes I just go out with my friends for dinner or a film, or a play or musical concert, or out folk-dancing, or else browsing at a local half-price book store, followed by late-night coffee somewhere - Portugal perhaps?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm hoping to meet someone whose kindness is heart-felt, whose sensitivity is surrounded by compassion, and who has no guile and allows herself to be available and open. I offer and promise the same and more to you.
You should message me if
If what I have written somewhat resonates with you and you're looking for a long-term/marriage partner in crime. Heart-centered people are more than welcome.
The two of us
