In his own words

Welcome, I'm Dan. Grab a wine or favorite tea. Relax. Put your feet up. This isn't speed dating. This is a timeless love quest. CONFESSIONS: All the pictures are Photoshopped in order to make me look a little older, a little less nimble, a bit more wrinkled, MUCH more dignified in order to give these shirtless, Harley straddled young bucks a fighting chance. FAIR WARNING: I am not a match for every woman. Only the confident and gamely should apply. Yet, if you are well girded (NOT girdled), you are in for a sensation (gawd that sounds cocky). I'm 90% retired, an ENTP (Google it. I can wait as I've waited a lifetime for you already), entrepreneur, provocateur, gadfly, contrarian, sometimes dilettante/sometimes renaissance man, a dreamer AND a do-er, an adventurer, an imp, home-y but peregrinational (such a cool word), connector, communicator, friend-collector, charmed and charmer. I am sharp-as-a-tack (math is Achilles heel), fun-as-a-puppy, sweet-as-molasses, curious-as-a-cat, (AND really good with hyphens). Above alI else, I am a romantic. IN REALITY, I admit to looking my age but you'll have to hustle to keep up. I'm pure energy and youthful enthusiasm. Last April, I trekked 80 miles in the Andes with a slew of 20-somethings and except for one rocket-thighed Tasmanian she-devil, I was not embarrassed among them. GRATEFUL: I have known the "big connect" with both friends and lovers, ceaseless joy, laughter, long friendships, business success, delightful daughters, a breadth of travel and great books, listened to the wise, known the kindness of strangers and passed along. Daughters say I'm as alive and engaged at the grocery store chatting up the box boy as I am tromping around Barcelona or the Himalayas. LOVE: Midwesterners, my parents taught me love by example and were as kind, complimentary (and complementary), affectionate, good humored, caring as any lovers could be. My father, on his deathbed told my mother he still had a crush on her (how sweet is that?) My mother just remarried at 85. I was married for 20 years, regret little of it, kept the friendship. Last year, a beautiful relationship of 3 years ended due to no one's fault but circumstance. So I've known love, realize its limitations, but am eager to feed again at the trough of true love. PRIDE: I'm proud of the unique life I've lived. I sent myself to college; At 32, with a business and 2 homes, I took my wife around the world for a year. At 36, I became a green capitalist. For my daughters, I created a rite of passage called the Wisdom Walk, a mile saunter with each of my most respected friends. MUSIC/DANCE/ART: I dig the blues but am prone toward anything with a groove. Though a middle-aged white man, I can salsa (kinda) but, without humility, i am one of the great car seat dancers alive today. Beauty of art, movement, style are Keatsian. I admire it, appreciate it, relish it more than I personally possess it (read as YES, you may dress me). YOU? 1.) Have a skip in your step and a smile in your eyes 2.) Know compassion 3.) Believe in kissing til your lips hurt. NEXT STEP? My bestfriend says I'm a "prisoner of freedom," having awoken 16 months ago with happy, but distant-living daughters, a cruise controlled business, and no love at my side, so I took to the road--20 countries, 4 continents, 15 states--planes, trains and bicycles. Now back and ready for the next step with the right gal, be that more travel or settling down some (never settling for). Though I don't like the phrase "bucket list" (it implies kicking one), I'd like to see the Northern Lights, Siberia, and Berbers. I wouldn't mind growing tomatoes again either :) TRUER CONFESSIONS: While able to live anywhere, I'm currently in Claremont part-time and Hermosa beach part-time, trying to decide where to settle? What to do? Whom to love?). Suggestions? :-)

For fun

TRAVEL! This year I've trekked in the Andes (twice), sailed in Croatia (twice), lived in NYC, toured Bosnia, ate tomatoes in Sicily, snooped around Asia for 6 weeks. Also, I mtn. bike, wine taste, throw dinner parties and mentor a 15 yr. old boy.

Last read
