I relish the delightful gender differences. If there's chemistry (and physics too!) then of course I am open to everything and more. But I have found that to be elusive in the 20+ years that I have been divorced (after a 16 year marriage - my boys are 35 and 33). So I have temporized, with less than nirvana like results, but I remain optimistic. I am still looking for an intimate soul mate and companion for a totally balanced relationship in every way.
I love the outdoors, kids and dogs. My credentials are geeky, but my demeanor is not; I do march to the beat of a different orchestra. I ride, three sheets to the wind, a scooter (think large Vespa - that's an oxymoron) around SF, but use a car for the bridges and tunnels. I'll even take you for a ride if we don't exceed the weight limits (go figure; my share is about 155 lbs. but I don't ride stark naked, neither would you) - you get to straddle, not side saddle. On beautiful SF days, I love walking near the ocean, especially at Chrissy Field, and then ambling into the Warming Hut.
Over the years some girls (all right, women) have even called me handsome and cute, among other such things. I am not sure whether it's because I can be very silly, or were they addressing my butt? And I do make passes at girls who wear glasses. But there's a mutual disconnect with those that are insecure and/or pretentious, and not very comfortable being themselves.
I am youthful (you should see the length of my telomeres, even in my dotage as I get long in the tooth) from a lifetime of competitive squash, tennis and other athletic endeavors, in great shape, and live alone. I love to read, envy those with a green thumb, or real aesthetic and artistic sensibilities. My eclectic taste in music (no rap, please!) shows in my 4600+ collection of the very best on my iPhone. Politically, I am green, socially liberal and fiscally conservative. If I leaned any more progressively, I'd fall over to the left. Screw the NRA, and unfettered capitalism, educate and heal, make love not war ...
You will find me to be very bright (effervescently so actually), hospitable, entertaining, amusing, fair, forgiving, charitable and gainfully employed with flexible hours. I am an earthy (salt of the earth?) man of many appetites. Does garam masala turn you on? Born Hindu, my only dietary restriction is I eschew Islamic vinegar.
My mother was right, I am special (but not for everyone).
Will share my long favorite movie list if you wish, but they include Good Will Hunting, Scent of a Woman, Walk on Water, World's Fastest Indian, Bridge on the River Kwai, Paradise Road, My Cousin Vinny, Midnight in Paris, Gandhi, Lawrence of Arabia, Harlem Nights, Tea with Mussolini, Fried Green Tomatoes, A Foreign Field, Black Book, Lives of Others, King's Speech, Goodbye Mr. Chips (original), Eye of the Needle, Deathtrap, Sleuth, Cider House Rules, Secondhand Lions ...
For silliness and side splitting hilarity, Rat Race, Peter Sellers Pink Panthers, several Jim Carey, Charlie Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy and Rowan Atkinson movies.
- You're not into convoluted thinking and analysis - I don't buy the 'Windmills of My Mind' song stuff, though the words are clever. Frugal (not cheap) is admirable, but fair is also very important.
- You are open to a new honest relationship in its many forms, beyond 'pen pals' or 'new friends', march to the beat of a different drummer, have an irreverent iconoclastic streak (or you just streak, age be damned!), coupled with a politically incorrect sense of humor, and revel in the theater of the absurd.
- If you are willing to message me instead of just 'like' me. I can't view those.
