I'm a water/beach guy. I've spent my life unconsciously moving closer to the ocean from my beginning in Ohio. My hair is actually not black, it's salt-and-pepper - but they don't give that option. I lived overseas for four years (Spain/London) and love to travel. I travel alot for work as well, but always love coming home to this paradise. I really dislike drama and people that are cruel. I'm active and a bit more spontaneous/adventurous than most my age. I ride Harley's, fly planes, swim out past the surfers, and other activities that isn't everyone's cup-of-tea - but I like the adventure and freedom.
My two favorite words are passion and serendipity. I don't know what either one means, but they are big three dollar words and I thought that would make me look smart. If you are scratching your head wondering if I'm serious about that, no offense, but maybe we're not a match.
I've always thought the picture of a perfect relationship was two people sitting at opposite ends of a couch - in their own little worlds reading totally different books, but touching toes and feeling totally connected. If we really do think alike you will get the meaning of being connected, but still independent. Not that there shouldn't be plenty of time being fully connected, mentally and physically. But people that are looking for someone to 'complete them' are not at all what I am looking for. I'm looking for the person who clicks with me and is already complete, but CHOOSES to be with another person.
I love my friends dearly, which is of primary importance to me. I love great food and drink and love to cook. Most unusual hobby - I make beer. Turns-out it's also pretty great beer. My friend (a girl) is on this site and I guess I was tired enough of not meeting/dating someone with great character in the little group I tend to hang in that I am branching-out to see what this avenue may bring. Like most of us, I have tried a dating site in the past, but only briefly for me. I don't have the patience for some of the deception - and then going through alot of e-mailing only to rarely meet anyone in person. ... but here I am again - at least for a short while.
My perfect companion ?
Passionate - not just physically - about life. Honest to a fault. Independent but loves the idea of a partnership. Classy. Loves to travel and be adventurous. Can be spontaneous. Likes (or loves) the ocean/beach. Sensual and sexual but not so insecure that she feels she has to garner the attention of every man she sees. Intelligent. Loves to touch and be connected. Lives a healthy lifestyle - first and foremost for herself. Loves good food and drink. Doesn't mind a man cooking for her. Is comfortable being told she's beautiful - whether wearing makeup or not. Is comfortable with her body and who she is. Doesn't comprehend the word 'hate'. Not superficial, but understands the value of being financially responsible. Won't tolerate cruel people - ever. Is comfortable dressed to the nines, or wearing jeans and a T. Loves animals. Loves kids (whether she has/wants any or not). Loves her friends and strives to give as much or more than she receives. In a relationship she understands the meaning of compromising without keeping score. Passionate. Yes, I know I wrote that twice.
I'm not a diva. Wherever you take me will be great.
Talk !! Actually get to look at one another in person. Get to know each another and see if there is a connect.
Where doesn't really matter to me. Someplace that is mutually comfortable, whether it's coffee, drinks, dinner, a hike, kayaking, or whatever. Doesn't matter.
I think an initial meeting is to try to understand if there is a connection in those most basic individual beliefs and needs as well as a basic physical attraction.
