I'm now single after a long term marriage and a few year monogamous relationship. Life is wonderful, my 2 kids are in their mid-20's and it's my time to shine! Most friends consider me to be a great guy, sometimes quirky, funny, demonstrative, progressive, generous and possessing a strong joie de vivre. After putting it off forever, I returned to college in my late 40's, got a bachelors degree, and a few years ago, I nailed my masters. What a thrilling ride and exceptional educational experience!
While I make friends easily and generally know within minutes if we'll click, most either totally get me or some have no idea what planet I'm from, which is just fine and exactly how I run. I don't follow the herd and often do the opposite of what other's expect.
I have friends of a wide span of age groups and spend a lot of quality time with my daughter.
I've traveled around the world and travel often for both pleasure and business. After six weeks, I have a difficult time being fully grounded and need some form of travel to take me away from responsibilities and reality.
So until I feel I can make the decision to live in London or somewhere in Europe, I work hard at my job, I live a respectable life, I help my kids, pay my taxes and consume knowledge for travel ideas, spiritual growth, expand friendships and try not to stress to much about the state of the world.
I do spend a fair amount of time going to live concerts of many genres, but I'm a rock and roller deep down and find myself at both local and distant venues often.
Whomever I am at the time, I always strive to be a gentleman unless the situation warrants otherwise.
I love to cook and friends have suggested I'm a gourmet. I enjoy eating out often and try to avoid chains, yet I do have a thing for Ruth's Chris.
The backbone of my life is music of any genre, but particularly progressive and classic rock. I can be found at Davies, The Fillmore, Fox, Mt Winery, Stern Grove or any venue presenting what turns me on. I favor small venues such as the Great American Music Hall, a dive bar; anywhere with live music. I unwillingly and begrudgingly attend shows at arenas. I've been known to follow bands across the country!
What I hope to achieve in life.
Emotional intelligence and Maslow's theory of hierarchy.
What road should I take, how can I pull it off, will I be happy, will it work, what are the risks, if not now, when?
Finding the love of my life, what will she look like, what will her personality be, will we mesh and adore each other and our extended families, will my kids adore her and will her's adore and appreciate me and mine?
I would hope a lady who enjoys the company of a gentleman, while being with a guy who can also act less than half his age, is acceptable.
My accomplice should wonder who is this dude on the other side of this virtual space, a woman whom possesses her own joie de vivre and thinks out-of-the-box about the next chapters in her life and what possibilities for experience, travel, pleasure and joy truly have to offer.
I don't get why women seeking relationships with men choose to post prominent pictures of their dogs. You and your dog is great. Just your dog? I'm not looking for a relationship with canines, I'm looking for female-humans!
Please, first and foremost, be an optimist.
