** ALERT: IF YOU SEND ME A "MEET ME" EMAIL, I CAN'T FIND YOU :( ** (BECAUSE I HAVE NOT UPGRADED)
MOSTIMPORTANT in my life: Partner; Family; Friends. I am VERY loyal-favorite grand uncle/uncle/brother/stepdad/best friend, and colleague. Love children-raised twin stepdaughters for ten years (13 years ago). Earthly connections enrich my soul.
I really enjoy: Dancing; the great outdoors; really listening to you; watching the eclipse while not looking at it; interesting conversations; deep, rib crushing laughter (with, not at); staring deeply into your eyes; getting back up, stronger, after being knocked down; white shoes; good food; nonfiction; glimpses of the glorious; touching you; howling at the FullWolfMoon; night moves; Grape Nuts cereal; Mutual titanium solid Trust; rock and roll music; spirits; the mysterious; behind closed doors; sterling silver with/without semi-precious gemstones; and spontaneity. So much opportunity here.
I am respectful,and know how to treat my partner. Absolutely nothing to hide, and very open minded.
Seriously, I hope ALL FIND ENRICHMENTGROWTHandPASSION.

Disclosure: I do have baggage. Not sure if I know someone who doesn't?
Some on this site don't have any. Mo' power to you.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Meet in some public place, for coffee or tea, so as not to waste your time, if there is no connection.
Walk on a beach, along the cliffs; to Downtown SantaCruz or Capitola by the Sea; dancing and a beverage?
