I am of medium height (though same say “tall”), slender and yet muscular. I am attracted to women who are are athletically inclined and toned. I love the outdoors and hike, bike, swim and ski as much as time allows. I would love to share those passions with that special someone. I especially like the mountains of Vermont and go their regularly to hike and enjoy the scenic beauty. When I can't exercise outdoors, I go to the gym regularly and place a lot of importance on physical fitness. I am active and would much rather be doing something outdoors than watching it be done. While I like my football and sports, I am not a couch potato! I would much rather "Stand with you on a mountain and bathe with you in the sea"!! (Savage Garden), than just sing about it! Although of slender physic, I do have a wild side that presses the limits of bathing in mountain streams, lakes and the Atlantic at all times of the year...a step below the polar bear club! and running as many mountain trails as is physically possible..at least for me! I enjoy thunder storms...running in the rain and sometimes dancing in the rain! (minus the lightning!) I love the smell of rain and its cleansing effects spiritually and physically!
I enjoy gardening and taking care of my home so that it looks nice and well kept inside and out. Gardening is therapeutic for me. There is something healing about plunging your hands into deep rich nutritious soil and planting a bulb or a seed! I especially like adorning the inside of my home in the Spring and Summer with freshly cut flowers. There is something very romantic about the giving of flowers. I will not only shower your heart with affection, but a bright morning bouquet of freshly cut flowers is one of my ways of communicating love and staying in love. (Barbra Streisand and Neil Diamond stated that sentiment well in their song "You don't Bring Me Flowers" anymore... there is a truth in the midst of that lyrical sadness) It may be easy to "fall in love," but keeping love's flames burning requires WORK so the chemistry doesn't fizzle.
I enjoy working on cars, home projects and anything that needs to be fixed I try to fix. My latest project has been restoring a classic Camaro (I'm not finished yet!). I do not have a Harley, but maybe one of these days!! If you ride, maybe I will catch on quicker!! Aside from the professional aspects of my life, I've had quite a bit of handyman experience and enjoy refurbishing homes. I do confess that I struggle with "projects" interfering with quality time with others. At times I can be very single minded and goal oriented. A fault I am working on. (However, it doesn't take much feminine charm to make me drop any tool I have in my hand!! What kind of charms do you possess? a soft voice, a kiss? more?)
I enjoy romantic movies, spending time at the beach, dinners out and wine and dancing on the patio as the evening sun goes down and beyond. I love to dance but don't do enough of it...I may not be the world's greatest dancer..but I am open to learning new steps...anyone up for learning to tango? I enjoy seafood and traveling up and down the coast exploring and tasting the wonderful New England Cuisine!....especially the coast of Maine! Anyone up for lobster or clam chowder?
I am deeply spiritual but am redefining who I am spiritually. I like to write, and theatrically express what is written. I am in the health care industry and am opening new chapters in my life both professionally and personally. (I will have to explain that transition personally.)
I am compassionate and empathetic. If it affects you, it affects me also. I am caring and deeply love people. I love to laugh and man enough to cry when tears are appropriate. I am not ashamed to feel or to express my feelings. I am intensely passionate. I feel all the colors of the rainbow and express those feelings both verbally and musically. I love to dance, but I also love to sing...especially singing bass in a quartet ensemble or singing classic love songs. Where ever I am you'll find me singing (especially in the car!) or whistling. It's hard to be blue for long when the sunshine of His love shines in your heart! I enjoy many kinds of music, Latin, soft rock, classic rock & roll, country, pop, classical etc. I like finding all the "love songs and romantic ballads" from the different genres of music and mixing them all together in a musical menagerie. Music affects time and life. Some music I can get so "lost" in, I get caught up in moments of eternity where all that matters is the message being conveyed by notes and by words. Sometimes joy, sometimes tears. I am looking for someone to get lost together in the same mystical musical menagerie. Do you like Michael Buble? Elvis? Sinatra? Selena? Savage Garden? Tchaikovsky, Ricky Martin, Willie Nelson, Amy Grant and the list could go on ad infinitum. "What comes from the heart reaches the heart!" Isn't that what life is all about? "What comes from the heart..."
May God Bless you if you made it this far!!
P.S. You must love dogs. I love animals and have two of the most wonderful dogs in the world! They are my hiking buddies! Even the little one goes into the "way back" with me...they may be a little spoiled and undisciplined...but they will love you and lick you to death! Just like their daddy!
In the Winter: meeting for coffee at a coffee shop where conversation is appropriate and allowed would be fun. Or at a quite restaurant over a simple dinner and a bottle of wine.
If the weather is warmer, walking along a beach barefoot would be memorable. However, the surroundings are secondary to the opportunity to talk and share one's life story. I want to know who you are, what you have been through, and what makes you you. If you care or dare to share, I would consider it my privilege to listen.
