My self-summary
The Best Things in Life Aren't Things

First off...I am not 64 (in my mind)...I may have been born back in that day, but as I hope you know and know how you feel...we are not our ages...I believe we reach a certain plateau of age - outlook, interests, feelings
(mentally and emotionally) and stay there...the physical is up to you...

I believe in a good chat/email, however I am not looking for a pen pal and endless back and forth chit chat... I do believe that after reading one's profile and a few emails...two people should be able to determine if they are able to: visit on the phone-put a voice to the nice emails, meet for a coffee, app or drink...that said, l do believe the woman should decide these things, that she should feel comfortable/safe/good about this decision...

I am a happy, single man..varied and eclectic tastes, I love to cook-dinner for two or entertaining family and friends,good conversation,music, the arts- museums, galleries, theatre, movies, street fairs...golfing (badly), walks/hikes, kayaking,road trips(singing in the car on road trips), laughs...I am spontaneous and always up for new/interesting experiences and ideas..I am a Midwestern Man who posesses what I consider the best in Midwestern values and upbringing..like to know? Just ask. Born in DC, raised in Missouri/Kansas, I am a child of the sixties and still posess thoughts/feelings/ideals of that era...love,peace,happiness..if you lived in the sixties, were young,curious,open and adventurous at heart..you know what I mean..and remember: "The Best Things in Life Aren't Things"
What I’m doing with my life
I am looking for a happy,independent woman..willing to share, thoughts,feelings and desires- with some- though not necessarily all- the same interests as mine, who is willing to share hers as well. We are different,yet let us be willing to make a happy/strong relationship work..I would defend you care for you, protect you as I know, in time, you will do the same for me...actions speak for themselves...it starts as friends-as sharing equals.
I enjoy fun,interesting conversation, laughs-intellectual curiosity is important to me..I am street smart/intelligent/well read..a student of life's experience..unlike some online I do not require someone with a degree..that is limiting..we all posess intelligence beyond any measure..
I feel intellectual curiosity begets intelligence..an education does not an educated person make.
I’m really good at
I love people..helping others..I enjoy good conversation and love back and forth fun banter..I have never met a stranger and am always ready for a new adventure..I love working with my hands..DIY projects-building a deck,raised beds,turning the earth. I am very good at my chosen field..which requires leadership,thought and planning..thus I believe I have the best of both worlds in my life..
The first things people usually notice about me
Open, honest, friendly,at ease...

"A guy out there was meant to be the love of your life, your best friend, your soul mate, the one you can tell your dreams to...
He'll brush the hair out of your eyes. Send you flowers when you least expect it.
He'll call to say goodnight or just 'cause he's missing you..
He'll look you in your eyes and tell you, 'you're the most beautiful girl in the world' and for the first time in your life, you'll believe it"
- Nicholas Sparks
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love anything to do with history of any period, love biographies, historical novels and cookbooks..I love to cook, at one time owned 2 Italian restaurants and 1 Mexican restaurant..love the music of my time..I am a child of the 60s and still have that love, peace and happiness vibe..
The six things I could never do without
Faith/Family/Friends/Finances
An Imperfect Woman to Love and Be Loved Perfectly
Coffee
70% Chocolate

(ok, I overdid it)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I ever Lived to 63...
Also...

..btw...ladies, I am sure you have had this experience...I am not your ex...please do not place/lump me with them. I am me and the person I described in my profile above. I say this because that is what I have experienced...sorry for your bad experiences..but I am not that guy you knew...peace.
