First off I'm 44 not 49 ...entered wrong year and can't change it.
I have a lot of interests. I would describe myself as a lifelong learner. I have an insatiable curiosity for life. I'm always looking for a new challenge.
As for the type of woman that I'm attracted to. I am a big fan of a gentle and quiet spirit and I'm very attracted to intelligent outspoken women that know what they want ... and I do not think that these contradict each other rather the former compliments the latter.
I'm looking forward to some new friends and who knows maybe find that "spark"
One of my favorite quotes:
Life is too short to be anything but happy.. Kiss slowly, love deeply,forgive quickly, take chances, give everything and leave with no regrets......forget the past with the exception of what you learn from it and remember that everything happens for a reason.
