I hope that by opening my "soul" to you here, you may know me well enough to make an informed decision to contact me...I hope you do, and you feel that you are the one this is written for. I am moved by the stars, waterfalls, the ocean, starry-nights, and springtime. I have realized the rarity of life on this planet and celebrate everything I see. I am not concerned with filling my bank account. I saw what hurricanes Andrew Wilma, and Katrina did to those attached to "things".(as well as the current economic crisis). I am here to help my fellow man. If you want a "driven" man then click off my profile. As those men chase their career, I will be chasing you down the beach. Yes, I am a contradiction at times (and an admitted eccentric) but it will always keep you wondering! I'm an INFP. I love to cook (25 years in the restaurant business) and have the credentials to prove it.. I make a killer chocolate linguini topped with B&J NY Super Fudge Chunk Ice Cream and shaved white chocolate...TO DIE FOR! I enjoy Hawaiiana and love to vacation in Kauai. The Mai Kai is hallowed ground to me but I am equally at home at Southport Raw Bar (God, I love that place!) I scuba dive, hike and camp love to take evening walks down Riverwalk and the beach. I'm a passionate romantic and not for the timid or shy. I write essays on philosophy and religion (Deism...BTW, I firmly believe Jesus is a myth so if you can respect that, and the fact I don't do Christian holidays, then cool...it's all about respect...(Pagan holidays are fine, Goddesses) I enjoy art movies, home theater, theater, baroque, jazz, techno, and zydeco. I speak conversational French and Spanish. I'm totaly silly at times and suffer fits of falling on my back to make snow (sand) angels. I want to fly off to Amsterdam for a weekend of coffeshops and... ;) I hate footblah, NASCRAP, and hanging out with groups of men. I have testosterone, I don't have to prove it, I'd rather be around estrogen anyday! I'm not looking for someone to fix or fix me. We have to accept who we are and celebrate our life here on Earth.
Things I like to do when I can get out...Put the top down on my Sebring and enjoy a nice ride down to the beach and string my hammock up between two palm trees and read a good book (there's room for you too!), go to the Mai Kai for happy hour, SCUBA dive, Kayak, go to the casino and use THEIR money, go to a jazz club for some live music, go to street festivals, anything you like to share with me?
As for the type of woman I am hoping to meet...
PLEASE don't look at this as definitive...I hope you can read that I'm looking for a girl that is not vanilla, a bit quirky, has a broad range of interests, is not the girl that hangs out with the guys and watches the games on TV and can recite the stats from memory; not a tomboy in a dress. I'd like to meet a woman that basks in her feminity (a girly-girl...hose-n-heels type) and loves to celebrate it and is in no way afraid of her sex/sensuality and takes passion to the edge. Someone that believes that taking the road not taken HAS made all the difference and that following trends, and everyone else...makes her a person in sheeps clothing. I'm looking for a woman who can stand alone on a beach, without a job, a car or a house and feel complete and fulfilled by who she is inside, without any external definitions or facades to hide behind. I'd love to meet the woman that holds true, On ne voit bien qu'avec le cœur. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux."One sees clearly only with the heart. Anything essential is invisible to the eyes."
You awake every day full of wonder and hope. Friends and family over your career. You think Harleys are noise pollution and abhor televised sports (except ice skating and the Olympics). You enjoy the simple things in life but endulge in the finer things on occasion. You live a life of reason and find wonder everywhere you look. You see through self-help gurus and televangelists and have faith in yourself rather than other people or things. You aren't afraid of heated political and religious debates and are stimulated by discussions of string theory one minute and the merits of Captain Kangaroo over Mr. Rogers the next. You believe in keeping even small commitments as a measure of common courtesy. You have had it with the commercialization of Christmas and celebrate the spirit in your heart and not in a store. You think piercings are ok but think tattoos are for sailors. You like mulled wine on cold nights, tropical drinks on hot days and long walks on the beach under a full moon. You are a social liberal and an economic conservative. You are not frightened by crowds or small children and don't mind New Year's at Times Square. You either scuba dive or are dying to do it. You love cats, taking showers together, exchanging back rubs, doing the Sunday Times crossword, Jeopardy over Wheel, Roquefort over American. Pinot Noir. Raw seafood. Monty Python. Hate (c)rap and hip-hop, Country Music and cowboy hats and think rodeos are cruel to animals. You have no phobias and aren't a picky eater. You lick around your ice cream cone and are touched by the songs "Alone in the World", "The Island", and "Get Here if You Can". You believe in decriminalization and think only cops and the militia need guns. Only 3% of you match this...Lucky me! No MLM/seminar addicts,cult members, or workaholics...please. Why waste time dating when you can lay it all out here. See you soon. I honor BBW godesses but do not do well in BBW relationships...I prefer petite, athletic women. Prefer...not demand. You must also not be afraid of PDA. There are too many that have no qualms about the other PDA...Public Displays of Aggression...To me, love is like sky-diving. I jump into it without yelling, "SLOW DOWN!!"
