About Me
Prologue

"Juntos podemos" - "Together we can." Spanish is not my native language but I just love the spirit of "Juntos podemos". I think it captures my state of mind even better than my previous headline "The best is yet to come" - I am doing well by myself but I hope it would be even better and more fulfilling with the right person. Good luck to us all. I kayak at Lake Williams in summer and fall and hike there year round, in case you wonder what "lake_williams" is. I have been to many places and yet have always wanted to come back to the lake :-).

True, there are plenty of fish in the ocean. But all I need is one, a good one. Why does anyone need more than one is beyond me? The required efforts, the logistics nightmare, the lofty and hollow justifications, and worse yet, keeping a hidden agenda from the very person who believes in you? Can happiness really be built upon deception? How does it affect one's self esteem by knowingly misleading the other person?

Why even bother entering a man-and-woman relationship if one is not ready for commitment? Of course, there are legitimate needs of companionship however it should be advertised just as such - a companionship not a relationship.

Let it be crystal clear that a relationship based on self respect, mutual trust, desire and willingness to make the future the best to come is what I am seeking here. Deep down we all know our state of mind, if you are simply looking for a companion with no intention of developing into a solid relationship then please look for someone else - my time is precious.

However, if you have a similar state of mind and long for a simple and yet fulfilling life, I would definitely love to hear from you.

Although in the end, it may turn out that we are not right for each other; nonetheless we would at least be able to take comfort in knowing that we met an honorable person and we tried our best. However if luck is upon us, then we would have someone to share our joy, sorrow, and make all the unfulfilled dreams come true. And I would treasure, more than anything else, the opportunity of being with you.

Thank you for reading and good luck with your search.


Sincerely,


John

Thank you for taking your time to stop by my world.

I have been wondering with so many good people in the world why it hasn't been easy to find the right person to be with - someone with similar outlook towards life, healthy life style, and is honest.

I am 47, single, never married, and no children.

Since I spend all my working hours in the office, I try to make it up with physical activities in my limited free time. I value healthy life style and hope you do too - I am not a health nut but it is important to invest in one's own health. I am not right for you if you are not interested in healthy living.

Nowadays I listen to opera, jazz, and classical music. Occasionally when the moments of youth surging from underneath, I would play Beatles, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, and ... I do not watch TV any more instead I read Wall Street Journal and Economist - Washington Post, NPR, and BBC in my younger days.

I would love to hear from you if you are a fair minded person, ready to be an equal partner, particularly if you "have been there and done that". It is not I have anything against younger minds or wondering souls. I do find those little things amusing nonetheless I do not wish to participate in them any more. Being a drifter myself before, I am now very happy with simple things in life and hopefully I am lucky enough to find a person who is happy with who she is and does not need/try to be someone else. Let me hear from you if what I put out appeals to you. Thank you.

John

Wish you well
There are very few songs inspire so much hope and love. Wish you well - "whatever road you choose".

The Golden Rule:

"Do onto others, as you would like done onto you."


Put differently, though not a logic equivalence, it does capture the feelings of the person on the receiving end:

"Do not do onto others what you would not have them do onto you."


We are what we do to others --- not what we wish we have done to others.
It is a great feeling to know that despite the temptation of going with the flow, we take "the less traveled path" to pursue what our hearts lead us to. And that, my friends, defines who we are. We only live once. So why not make it counts and BE who we really are. When the final curtain falls - as it certainly will, it is our lives, no one else's, isn't it?

Oh, I enjoyed the art festival at Mt. Gretna, PA last weekend. It was lots of fun I even won the drawing for a very nice painting!

First Date
Anything reasonable. Museums, parks, craft show and then lunch or dinner.
