I have a wide variety of eclectic interests that I would enjoy sharing with a special woman who also has a vast collection of things she'd like to share and experience.
I am a former public speaker and writer who was involved in helping people, which I'll gladly tell you about in person. My second career is involved in quality inspection of differing instruments produced for assisting people in prolonging their lives. I have a strong commitment to caring for all people and a special interest in assisting those who are disenfranchised.
Grew up in Hillsboro and after undergrad and graduate school have lived my life in the midwest, south, and most recently in New England. Back in Hillsboro for good...all my family lives here and they are extremely important to me. I have an avid love for the arts, antiquing, all kinds of music, dancing, sports, the theatre, concerts, discovering interesting and out of the way places in Oregon and in quaint neighborhoods in the greater Portland area, and enjoy getting out in the garden. Dress professionally and look fine in a hoodie and jeans. I enjoy passionate kisses, hugs, walking on the beach, having coffee together, simulating conversations, quiet times holding hands, dinners at home or out at a favorite night spot, snuggling by the fireplace, and much, much more! No matter the neighborhood you live in, I have no problem with travel to meet you.
I am a Christian, on the liberal side in my spiritual growth. I have experienced and know the ups and downs of life and know how (and have) to deal with them emotionally, spiritually and intellectually. My ducks all fly in formation in a positive and encouraging way. My daily mantra is to meet everyone with mercy, kindness, grace, politeness, care, acceptance, love and affirmation...seeking to provide happiness to all to where there day is much better. I lean to the liberal side politically and believe in and support humanitarian causes.
I'm patient and as well, spontaneous, kind, a caregiver, straight to the point, always honest, faithful, attentive, a great listener, a gentlemen, laugh inside (more so) and out, enjoy good jokes, tell great stories. I relate to and am open to everyone I meet!
I'm looking for a special, attractive (attraction can mean many different things and qualities, and it is important both inside...what's in your heart is key...as well as outside), intelligent, fun, open-minded, accepting, witty, sensitive, and who is just simply a wonderful woman! Is that you?
I believe the best way to tell if there is going to be a connection is to meet, do something fun and enjoyable together, converse and get to know each other...then meet again in a different, agreed upon setting. So on and so forth. Sparks don't always spark, bands don't always play, and confetti doesn't always fall from the sky just over one cup of coffee...sometimes it takes two...or maybe even three!
Hope you will respond! Steve
