I'm a happy, humorous, healthy human. I'm in good condition physically and intellectually. Emotionally...well...I'm working on it. I've never been committed to a mental hospital! I HAVE been committed to a woman partner, however.
I've traveled--living 10+ years outside the USA. I can converse comfortably in Spanish, Portuguese...and English. I can stumble through countries where Italian, French, or German is spoken.
I'm a lifelong learner, having spent 10 years as a student in university classrooms...and I'll probably spend more. I enjoy a wide range of 'things' and activities...a good cup of coffee, a worthy pair of pliers, the convolutions of a geologic fault, the smell of Italian cypress and juniper...listening to music from Willie to Wolfgang, tasting the subtle differences between leafy greens, my morning exercises or "asanas", logically discussing ethical questions, watching a cat watch me, learning almost anything, assisting in filling in a crossword.
I'm looking for a cosmopolitan partner (who has probably been out of the USA at least two years; she may be "ethnic"), who has a keen interest in ethics, who has done some serious emotional homework, who is politically liberal, who is educated (but not necessarily intelligent), who has a pervasive sense of humor, and who might like to do crossword puzzles. She's a subtle, calm, refined, and compassionate woman.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Take a walk, then sit for a while and talk over a cup of European-style coffee.
