I try to be very honest regarding my intent here, and currently, I'm not certain about a long term relationship, but I remain open minded regarding the possibility of more. In the last 6 years, all of the women I have had long term relationships with (one year or more), have been in their 30s; albeit, I am open to dating someone who is older than that. Please do not be rude in messages regarding the aforementioned. If you have legitimate questions, feel free to message me.
For those who are into MB personality tests - I'm ENFP.
I'm curious about the world we live in. So, I like exploring it. Thus far, I have been to approximately 40 countries; including a 5 month round the world back pack trip in 2013, where I visited 10 countries. This was a life changing experience. I would say that travel and volunteering my time to help others, are probably my 2 biggest passions.
I'm a "self made man" where I succeeded via my own hard work and wit; not from any inherited fortune, family connections or other privilege. I retired early when I was 50. A favorite quote (and I have many) is "Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune." I can be clownish and joking, but there is also duality in my personality, as I can be quite introspective. If you're looking for someone who is far from perfect; somewhat eclectic; a bit eccentric; has been a bad boy once upon a time; but today recognizes that "a life un-examined, is a life not much worth living" (that Socrates cat), then give me a shout. By the by, there are possible EXCEPTIONS to everything I have written here. I try to be open minded and flexible in everything I do. Consequently, putting a few paragraphs in a box doesn't define me, nor do I expect it to define you. Cheers!
A first meeting isn't a "date," but an opportunity to determine if we both want to go on a real date. Something low-key like coffee and/or a walk is always a good way to meet. A number of women have told me that they literally receive dozens of email from males. I get it that the odds are likely long that I might get lost in the shuffle. However, I think I am unique and worth it, thus I'm not part of the proverbial herd and I rarely contact anyone first (so if I add you as a favorite or do contact you, I'm intrigued/interested).
I am attracted to non-smokers and thin/athletic women. If you are conservative, close-minded, or don't think outside the box (on occasion), we probably wont click . . . Just sayin'. Please have a passport. I am 59, have wrinkles, and have no idea if I look my age. In short, you be the judge. However, I feel young and try to keep in shape. All of my photos are recent, taken in the last couple of years. Please ensure your photos are too. Lastly, I'm also hesitant about doing a long distance relationship, e.g., Colorado Springs, Boulder, etc., and need more to hold than a phone. Good luck on your search!
