My self-summary
I am back from traveling somewhere. Where are you?

Please read this first before writing me. I am honest and up front about who I am. I am complex and personable and bright (not brilliant). I have answered a lot of questions to give you a sense of who I am before you contact me. If I don't fit, then skip.

While waiting for you to arrive in my life, I am living my life very fully on my own terms with very few regrets. When we are together, our life together will be on our terms - a blend. Blending is good. Simply put: there is my stuff; there is your stuff; and there will be our stuff. And, some of our stuff may already be your stuff.

Friends first and forever is one of my BIG goals. We will be doing some traditional "dating" at first but the real end goal is to get to be lasting friends and more. You MUST be available for a real relationship. If you have a lot of distractions going on or hijacking your life, you may not be ready yet to have me in your life. I know what this is like. It is discouraging when you discover someone and know you truly can't go forward (very far).

Where I live in the world doesn't matter. Whom I am sharing the adventures with and what we are doing does. I am willing to modify my life. Are you??? It is a two way street situation. Amazing how many folks tend to forget this aspect. You gain by adapting to new adventures. That is what is meant by being truly available. That is another of my BIG goals.

I now live in Dunedin (north and NW of Clearwater) in a new-to-me 1970's era villa. I did a complete gut rehab to modernize it. Another of my BIG goals is to always live in a warmer climate area during the year. For now, I continue to have a small summer time cabin near Annapolis. MD. It is up for sale. I want flexibility to spend time doing OUR stuff. That helps to make me truly available (as you should be).

When left to do things by myself, I tend to do Celtic theme activities. Most of Europe is a mix of Celtic heritage and gene pool. I have four kilts and a great attitude about having an active social life - no moss on my rolling stone. Being active within the Celtic community is another BIG goal. Hope you can enjoy this party.

Day time in Florida is a natural for walks, kayaking, biking, casual breakfast and coffee and .... In my bucket list is a desire to learn how to eat differently for a healthier lifestyle. That is a BIG goal. Right now, I am learning to enjoy a vegan style breakfast. I am slowly losing the extra pounds that I don't need - not for vanity but for health.

Besides traveling, I currently enjoy sunbathing, swimming, socializing, reading, and either doing stuff on the internet or watching TV (not in any order). In years past, I have done theater arts but today I would rather be part of the audience, be supportive, be entertained, and then go out for desserts. Life is too short to rehearse that much.

In general, I like to feel like I am living life fully. To paraphrase Henry David Thoreau: "To suck the marrow out of the bones of life". I expect and want to dance - not just watch others dance.

I would like to share many of those dances with you if you are that Mostly-Right-for-me individual (not perfect - just a great pair-up at this point in time in our lives).

Let our future history together decide if our time together was our ultimate memorable relationship. If not, then we should be able to say that we still found a great friend, created some great memories, and shared the here and now together.

What I’m doing with my life
I am doing my bucket list. No excuses (explanations are okay) - only solutions are encouraged. To the bold goes the gold. Got an event, let me know. It is always more exciting to share it with someone. Then, it becomes OUR bucket list of things to do.
I’m really good at
I am the real McCoy - a keeper. There is a fine line between being arrogant and self confident. I am real. I am genuine. That is a fairly refreshing thing to experience.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a wonderful smile, a twinkle in my eye, a great sense of humor, and a well rounded emotional intelligence. People find themselves at ease around me. I like most people and find them fascinating. They feel affirmed when around me and tell me they look forward to seeing me again.

I tend to collect "characters" that reach out and do things beyond the ordinary choices in life. They tend to step up and do more, not less. I am often one of their best cheerleaders. Isn't that what friends do? So, I am looking for real friendship as part of my long term dating direction with an end goal of sharing our lives together.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Life is a candy store. I am still learning and open to all possibilities. Choices are a two way street so be prepared to be flexible, exploring new adventures, and helping us find our blend. I expect that our adventures and memories will fill a book.
Six things I could never do without
1) A water bottle to stay hydrated with; 2) a sense of the general direction we are heading and understanding the flexibility needed in life to tweak that course; 3) doing something that has an opportunity to generate a smile while fulfilling a dream; 4) a desire to share time and space; 5) a need to be affirmative by nature and not just tolerate differences in people; and 6) to be truly available for a real relationship.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What else can I do right now or fairly soon that is in my bucket list. Not everything is an expensive event. Many bucket list items are often simple local things. Got an event? Let me know. True intimacy is about sharing on many levels - intellectual, emotional, and physical.
On a typical Friday night I am
During the Winter Season, I always have multiple choices of things to do. Off season, I still have multiple choices but I am also comfortable being at home.

The natural extrovert in me wants to play and share adventures. Can you come out to play? Could you just chose to come over and hang out or you could chose to just invite me over to hang out and share time and space together at your place? I would love to slow dance in the dim light and feel our essence sharing the moment - a lingering embrace, a deep sensual kiss - romance is not a tough thing to make happen and should not be rare.
I have been lucky to have some great friends educate me on what some of life's possibilities are like. Once you know, more is an absolute.

Life is not complicated but it is about making choices. No decision is still a decision. I should have as a motto over my front door: No regrets and no prisoners - happy participants only.

Don't be afraid to risk being happy. I don't bite (maybe nibbling a little while doing pillow talk - LOL).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am what I am and that is all that I am. Sometimes the most simple explanation is what it is all about. Being honest and upfront is about risk taking and risk management. If you understand that risk taking is a key part of the affirmation and relationship building process, then you get it. It is part of my love languages.
You should message me if
If you get it - easy peasy.
The two of us
