Sometimes the best destination is finding satisfaction with your current location.
I've been back in my hometown for 5 years after putting my life on hold to take care of my parents in FL who have now passed on. Now that I heve settled in and established some stability, I'm ready to open myself up to finding someone special to build forever with.
I am driven by my current obsessive passions of Music, Playing Acoustic Guitar, Writing Songs(I was in bands for a number of years), Photography(published) and Movies. I love the Ocean and I was a hardcore Scuba Diver and Fisherman while I lived in FL.
I give everything I have in relationships and I have certainly bled for the privilege, having made some poor choices in mates. I should say that I've probably learned more about what I don't want than what I will find that I love. This has led to a pretty solitary life aside from my relationship with my friends. Fortunately, time by myself has taught me a lot and prepared me for opening up my heart again to the right person.
I am a kid at heart and want to live life to the fullest and funnest(yes, I know that's not a real word). I'll take experiences over posessions anyday. You can't take it with you when it's over and I'd rather spend my money on a sunny day and have a blast. Nobody ever said on their death bed that they wished they had worked more. That does not mean that I lack ambition, precisely the opposite. It's just that my ambitions are not superficial or materialistic. I would give a good friend the shirt off of my back.
Live, love, laugh and learn. I could feel like the richest man in the world with nary a dime in my pocket(although highly unlikely) as long as there is love, passion, lust and adventure in my life. Now, if I could just get the love thing handled.
So, if I have piqued your interest and the thought of being immersed in a lifelong partnership where you are the most important person to someone you feel the same about appeals to you, email me.
What I'm looking for:
Ideally, I would like to find someone who would be a true partner. I have been working on starting a group travel business that will have "us" travelling 20+ weeks/year and getting paid well to do so. I will incorporate my writing and photography into an additional income stream, so we will be making money all the way through what most would call retirement. She needs to be beautiful (in my eyes) inside and out and sensual with little limitations. Also, she would need to be adventurous and willing to give all of herself as I would do the same. Let's live the crap out of this life together.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I think a nice quiet place, maybe by the water, for coffee or a drink where we can talk and get to know whether or not we want to plan a second date. Serious bonus if we want to spend more time together and extend the date. I have alot of other ideas, but this seems to make the most sense. It just conflicts a little with my romantic nature. Let's face it we're trying to make a love connection here.
