I'm a strong, stable man, who is sensitive and tender, along with wild and passionate. My good fortunes include - wonderful friends and family, engaging work, an arty and interesting home and a love of life. I'm most happy when creating something beautiful or useful. I've traveled a lot (in a perfect world, you have too). Algeria to Iceland, and lived in Europe. I read the The New York times, Eckhart Tolle, Susie Bright, Car and Driver. Love John Waters. Musical tastes - Paganini to Pearl Jam. I meditate (sometimes), and know how to use power tools. I have nice hands and feet. I'd rather go for a drive or a bike ride on Sunday than watch the game. In fact, I don't even own a TELEVISION! I think unconventionally and have good "Happiness Skills." Closest friends are more likely teachers/artists than hedge fund managers. I'm a good communicator who takes responsibility for his thoughts and feelings, is non-blaming (ok, trying), is articulate and responsive, a good problem solver. In other words, a man who can manage his own energy and emotions. Smart but not stubborn (again, trying!). Cool and compelling. Good smelling. And humble.
I'd just like to add...
We don't fit neatly into category. We're full of surprises and spontaneity. Offbeat. Maybe more Paris or Joshua Tree than Cabo and Vegas. We lean to the left. Occasionally erudite ... though I've never been to Black Rock; I'd rather be at Burning Man than La Boheme. We love excess - in moderation! At our table, we set a place for love, fun, and adventure (and maybe your mother). We don't confuse passion with drama. Nature loves diversity and so do we: enjoying nature, cities, water, light, cooking, art, design, celebrating our bodies, hot springs, travel, kissing, cuddling, massage, friends and family. We savor our connectedness and are capable of the communication, commitment and openness that it requires.
I know how to open a door, my heart and my mind. I am ready to open these things forever for that special someone.
About his ideal match
The woman of substance I'd be wildly attracted to is an intelligent, fit, sexy and fun-loving person with an inventive and nimble mind, an eccentric spirit and uncommon style. You've created a happy life on your own because you know that being successful in a relationship is fundamentally about really liking yourself. Serious, yet uninhibited, with an intuitive and EXTREMELY playful spirit. You have a sexual appetite to complement mine. You're capable of far-ranging and fluid conversation. Down to earth. Less Material Girl. More Ethereal Girl. You don't need to "rock" a bikini at our age - but it'd be nice if you were "comfortable" in your bathing suit. Someone who is kind, deep and warm-hearted. You require that your partner's strength and gentleness go hand in hand. You have great taste and a wicked sense of humor. Cool if you weren't a fussy eater and liked to try new things - my apricot, chicken and peanut butter chimichanga rules! I am patiently searching for an authentic and connected, provocative and passionately sensual relationship with a uniquely beautiful woman, who is full of spunk and serious silliness, fire and fun, with a big fat zest for life.
