I'll keep this as anodyne as possible because my sense of humor comes across as somewhat biting online. I'm nice, so say hello if you feel you'd care to. No overselling here.
So, a little context...
I'm single, athletic, intelligent, look good for my age, make a nice living, and I'm funny as a mofo. I am. Just ask me. I'm a bit of a nihilist but not In a Morrissey kind of way. I think I know more than I actually do. Other times, I need things spelled out for me. In crayon. On a Big Chief tablet. My social skills can be formidable and/or charming when I have occasion to use them, but I can also turn into an INJF sorta creature and like being a homebody. I have the constitution of Keith Richards but know how to take care of myself. I'm overly sentimental, soft-hearted, and generous but don't tell anybody. I'm always, always respectful. I don't have any kids and have the ability to live freely and travel fairly often. I was married for a long time and I know what a commitment is, but right now I'm looking for a friend and then maybe a fellow traveler and explorer and maybe more. I've had a pretty solitary existence for a while now, and if that's the way it ends up, well then, c'est la vie, but obviously I'm looking for another, more intimate dimension here, and that means making someone else a part of my everything. Chemistry plays a role and I guess anything is possible, but I know what I like, want, and need, and those things, in the end, will prove to be non-negotiable, whatever they end up to be. There really is no one formula, in other words, and everyone perceives everyone else in a unique way. If you catch my eye, and I catch yours, then game on!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
It should be the first, eh? Dinner, drinks, etc. to have a conversation. Sky diving while shooting high-powered rifles can be the second date.
