FYI, if you have settings that limit the distance between us to contact you and you contact me and I'm over that distance setting, I cannot respond to your emails and interest, so please have your settings adjusted so we can communicate. Several members have sent me emails and I could not respond due to their preferences. I visit the SLO area often, have relatives in the 916 and like to do some travel, so distance at first is not a big inhibitor to meeting the RIGHT guy.
I am involved in my community, enjoy the company of interesting and humorous people and I'm seeking someone flexible and intelligent with passion for life.
Any moment can be memorable so let's make some good ones!
I am a very touchy feely person with a well developed right brain left brain balance. While I can create a spreadsheet and understand the bottom line, I also have done many types of hands on healing and I am extremely empathetic as well as a mystic.
You do not smoke anything, don't need controlled substances to enjoy life and like the company of a witty, sweet, sensitive woman.
I've studied eastern philosophy and find myself in the Taoist camp of thought. I seek someone open minded and questioning, rather than dogmatic and addicted to talk radio.
If you have read "Men are from Mars and Women from Venus", then you've earned points with me. If you have not read it yet, reading this book may shed some light on your success in your next relationship with the females of this planet.My last relationship lasted 20 years with the assistance of the insights John Grey shared with me. The great thing about this book is that is is an "easy" read. You can pick it up, read a few pages, put it down, come back to it and read a few more pages although most of the people that I've known that have read the book read it cover to cover in one sitting as the information was truly eye opening and transformative.
And as far as baggage goes, we've all lived, have memories and hopefully have learned to deal with our emotions and feelings responsibly to get along in the world.
My figure hour glassed and I'm definitely all woman. I hope you are all man and enjoy the company an alive real woman.
For a first date I like to meet at a nice local restaurant and enjoy conversation, great food and the ambiance while getting to know you. There are several great places in Santa Cruz that have this feel. I won't meet you at the beach or a park and go for a walk. I want to get to know you in a public place, find out more about you as a person. I'm not in a hurry.It takes more than chemistry to progress in a relationship. For me it takes mutual respect and a feeling of care and feeling.
To progress to any stage of intimacy I would want a STD test done and hopefully, you have that kind of care for your well being as well.
