Well by now you've seen some of my interests, and that is a short list. I was reading someone's bio on here that said that playing together is pretty important for a relationship to take root. I enjoy playing sports with my gal, for example racquetball, badminton, frisbee, skiing mountain biking. I am a bit of a rough diamond (actually emerald, irish heritage), but people and life have been buffing pretty regularly so some good facets are taking shape.
Over the past few years I have discovered that I have the most fun dancing, and I would hope to meet a lady who already is comfortable with basic dancing, for example cha-cha. or salsa, or two-step or waltz, or some kind of partner dancing. After ten years of WestCoast Swing, this fall I am taking Salsa lessons with Alfonso Caldera, just for a change. The music is fun (wish I knew what they are singing so heartily about). I really need a dance partner, and soon!
I have a good education, a good job that I like(d). (retired this year, just got tired of it). I am a local, lived in Greater Vancouver all my life. I know lots of secret fun spots all over the place, from beaches to hikes to nightspots.
Hoping to meet a woman who takes care of herself, (bit of makeup, dash of perfume, personal style).
I like intelligence and wit. I like thinking outside the box.
By now I've had a few relationships, and although I would never profess to really understand the female mind, I am comfortable with the balanced fuller perspective that a man and a woman together can bring to solutions. Am getting bored being single (again).
Although I have done my share of travelling, not so much lately, Vegas area for motorcycling and dancing last year. R & B festivals; nothing off the continent for many years. I have visited many cities from London to Istanbul. Maybe its time for another rip. You would need to be durable for such affairs, as I sometimes go north instead of south, I am easy going if you stuff a map or GPS in my face, I take correction easily.
I am pretty laid back lately, no relationships, not dancing near enough, or for that matter getting out much. Maybe we could spur each other on to get back out there!
I like to be somewhere casual, where there is some music and maybe martini's. We might not have had a chance to talk much on the phone or email, but just the same, I think an hour or two is plenty the first time, unless we just can't stop....heaven forbid!
