Hi there, here's the required info in no particular order-
I adore campfires, love good conversation. I'm a big reader, though some occasional fiction is great, I mostly prefer non-fiction (The Omnivores' Dilemma; Animal, Vegetable, Miracle; Grave Matters; Fast Food Nation; This Republic of Suffering; Generation Rx; Birth as an American rite of passage; Round-trip to deadsville; various history, cultural anthropology, and well, you get the point).
I haven't had a television for most of my life, but I'm game for an occasional tv show & like an occasional film. I believe laughing together is an invaluable part of life I would never want to do without. I like card & board games, but I'm most definitely not a "gamer".
Looking for a man who's polite, honest, happy, healthy, grown-up with well thought out opinions (which may be strong ones, but are based on accurate information and/or honorable values whenever applicable) to share & debate, looking for the same. You are not glued to any electronic device, realizing that they serve a purpose, but taking over our lives & relationships isn't it. You have a healthy libido but getting to know someone well happens first. I'm open to getting to know someone out of my area, but meeting each other in person fairly soon is important if we are close enough to do so. I have no preference for someone with or without kids.
"Hook ups", illegal drugs, and general flakiness have no part in my life, so we won't gel if that's what you're looking for.
Kindness, ambition, & intelligence are the three traits in a man which I find irresistibly attractive, and which I can match ;)
If any of this sounds like something you're interested in, say hello :)
Meet for coffee, a walk or something else relatively simple, just get to know if we're a good match for anything more.
