Is it just me or does this internet dating...

In his own words

Is it just me or does this internet dating thing seem a bit like shopping? This part, however, seems more like marketing. I've never been much of a marketing person, but here goes:1) I will match any other offers, 2) I provide free shipping if you are within 50 miles of Oak Park, and 3) most important, you can return me for any reason, no questions asked. Oh,,, and for one woman I can offer an Unlimited Unconditional Lifetime Guarantee (the UULG) for love and friendship. I am curious. I always have a stack of partially read books from the library. I Google diverse topics and often end up at Wikipedia. I am particularly interested in Politics, Psychology, History, Spirituality, and Holistic Medicine. I run, bike, do a few push-ups and such to keep in reasonable shape. I like to hike and any activity that brings me into nature. I love lightning, thunder, high winds, huge waves, driving rain, blizzard snow storms, the stark stiff cold of Winter, as well as amiable Spring drizzles, bright and breezy Summer days, and my favorite, the rustling, romantic Fall. What better soul food? I am philosophical but also practical. I have rehabbed houses, designed landscaping, and can fix things. On that note ladies, If a man says he'll fix something, he will. There's no need to remind him every six months about it! ¦ ) I try to be honest, by becoming more self-aware, and by saying what is true for me. Trust is on my shortest list of what is important in a relationship. Honesty is the necessary and obvious beginning. I am familiar with many shortcomings. You will not need to convince me that I am not perfect. I have invested much in personal growth. I believe easy communication about annoyances and hurts, without defensiveness and drama, keeps clear the space to appreciate what is good and admirable and beautiful in each other. Gratitude and affection can then grow. It has been said that what most seek in marriage is a witness. I think so. Anything feel lonelier than being in a relationship, and not feeling seen or heard? Charlie Rose did an interview with Chaz Ebert. She described the experience of meeting Roger as "Deep Soul Seeing." A connection like theirs is what I am seeking. On most days I feel young, nonetheless I'm old enough to be fond of Robert Browning's lines, "Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be, The last of life, for which the first was made" and John Lennon's romantic/spiritual add to, "When our time has come We will be as one God bless our love" A favorite saying: "In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you", Humor and happiness usually go together. Sharing a similar sense of humor makes everything better. With love, life has irony, comedy, absurdity, wit, cheer, and delight. Without these, the pain in this world would be overwhelming to me. I'm looking for a woman who is wired to live fully. She is open and honest. She is aware of, and expresses other feelings besides just "happy" (e.g. sad, angry, tender, excited, scared). I am attracted to spontaneous and creative women, secure enough to be vulnerable and trusting. She welcomes being held and supported. She is young at heart. In spite of hurts and disappointments. She still has gratitude, hope, imagination, tenderness, excitement and glee. Here's to getting off the shopping network. Who knows, maybe we can disappear together? p.s. Looks like I have left out enough to have characters sufficient to include a short verse by one of my favorite authors: "Here dies another day During which I have had eyes, ears, hands And the great world round me; And with tomorrow begins another. Why am I allowed two?" G. K. Chesterton Btw, Can I just ask, "When the cashier said "Strip down, facing me," How was I to know she meant my debit card?

Pets

I have Cats

I have 2 hilarious Abyssinian cats: Sailor and Jib. They scamper to meet me at the door, race to get where I'm going ahead of me, and love splashing under a running faucet. I know they think they're dogs.

Political views

Some other viewpoint

Favorite hot spots

I like relaxed settings where conversations and friendship flourish. I don't like loud entertainment and venues where the main attraction is escape. Small local, and out of the way spots are sometimes great.

College

Miami University, Oxford, OH

Favorite things

Love live music and Youtube concert videos, Favs: B. Raitt, B. Hornsby, D. Matthews, J.J. Cale, J. Hiatt, A. Lennox, E. Clapton, C. Santana, A. Krauss, D. Crosby, S. Stills, JT, T. Blanchard, B. Dylan, B. Springsteen, V. Fox, L. Zeppelin, and Fun.

For fun

For summer, I love long bike rides. I love movies. Don't miss many that are well reviewed. Not into over the top action movies, or horror flicks, but like anything else (even many that would certainly be considered "chick flicks").

Background / Values
Ethnicity: White / Caucasian Asian, Black / African descent, East Indian, Latino / Hispanic, Middle Eastern, Native American, Pacific Islander, White / Caucasian, Other
I am particularly attracted to cultures (and women) that are warm and demonstrative. I grew up in a reserved family with an abundance of German and Scottish genes expressing themselves (BY BEING UNEXPRESSIVE!).
Faith: Spiritual but not religious No preference
I experience faith as an attitude towards life. The world was meant as a place for love; and love is the best evidence for God. Anne Lamott said, "I believe when you are telling the truth, you are close to God." That sounds right to me.
Languages: English English
Education: Graduate degree No preference
I think academic degrees are less significant than being curious, paying close attention, and learning what is important in life. Both in past schooling, and my everyday thoughts, human beings are the subject I find most interesting.
