Hi! I'm different, yeah I know everybody is, but I'm more than usually so. That I'm this old and still single should say something to you! I like to understand the whys and hows of the world, not just the whats, whens and wheres. My path in life has not gone the usual ways, but I'd still like to experience some of what I've missed, perhaps with you.
Tonight, I'm not in the mood to try and present myself as some kind of perfect man. I'm not and I am changing what I don't like about myself. There are more ways to suffer from "Peter Pan Disease" than you might think. Yes, I am STILL maturing! Some of my immaturity is due to lack of experience. For example, I love kids, but I haven't raised any, so all parental instincts or hard won knowledge are latent or yet to be learned by me.
I can be silent a long time by myself, but next chatter like a magpie with friends. Then, I have to watch out for my nearly terminal "hoof in mouth" disease - that is, I'm not good at editing my thoughts before speaking. On the other hand, I can Sparkle in conversation, if you like my slightly warped sense of humor and can enjoy a deluge of information on a wide variety of topics.
I tend to be Intense which is both a plus and a minus. It also means that I'm the type of person who would want his spouse to share essential parts of his world view. In practice that means: share my fairly conservative Catholicism, and especially my pro-life stance. I am active in that area, because people are special animals throughout life - wonderful, horrible and everything in between. I believe that anyone can be, or become a wonderful person, but that too many won't. There's no "oops" when someone dies,(s)he is gone for the rest of our lives.
Heavy going eh? Not terribly fun, or for that matter, physically active. Well, I want to change that, but it really helps to have someone else around, to share experiences, and yes, to keep things lighter. That's where you just might come in. Drop me a line if you want to see.
