Sober and less-than-perfect gentleman, very affectionate, seeks active, fun-loving companion for fun and discoveries of all kinds. I will know you have a good sense of humor if you laugh at my jokes. Cats are best appreciated at a distance but not deal breakers. Dogs are better, but PLEASE, no leg-humpers. If you drink, fine, but do not expect me to follow suit. Physically I am tall, formerly bearded and otherwise of average build. Other than vitamins I take no medication. I like chess, but not to excess. I am interested in self-discovery and self-improvement, physically, mentally, and spiritually. I could say that the man who is not dependable is expendable, so I am intent on keeping my word, but I'd prefer that you find that much out for yourself. I prefer Classical and World music, but my tastes are really pretty eclectic. Art, architecture, and foreign film lovers are always welcome to apply. If you are acutely psychotic, this is a negative. If you are intelligent and already know the meaning of the word "sardonic", this is a positive. A special message to you ladies out there looking for a "Long Term Relationship" if you want to love long, love strong. And act the part, talk is cheap enough to be worthless by itself. Finally, if respect is absent, compatibility has departed long ago. UPDATE, June 2011: Have decided contentment is more important than passion, shocking, isn't it? Both were missing from the last days of my marriage and longing for both got them sorta mixed up in the old noggin- still sorting things out, trying to learn from my mistakes. Prefer sincere negativity to fake positivity- without SOME discontent, there can be no improvement or progress of any kind- with that said, a little negativity can go a long way and I probably have enough for both of us some days- honesty, right? I got that feedback from a reliable source.
SPIES LIKE US:
An exercise suggested by a friend uses the acronym "spies", for Spiritual, Physical(as in physical places, activities, etc.), Intellectual, Emotional, and Sensual, to define qualities we desire in a potential partner. Put them down on paper or incorporate them into your profile if you like, if they do not attract suitable candidates they will at least help you recognize such people more easily as they come along.

Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I'd like to go for coffee or other beverage to determine with the lovely lady what our next meeting should be like. It is important to establish trust and meeting at a mutually agreed place and time is a good place to begin. After a nice leisurely conversation another meeting could be arranged.
