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.

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.
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).
