I'll be honest with you, I'm a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to dating, so meeting someone online is completely foreign to me. But I'm finally dipping my toe in the water, so here goes.
My friends would tell you that I'm unbelievably optimistic and greet every day with a sense of adventure. Easy going, but not a pushover. Definitely outgoing, spontaneous and open minded, a rock of strength when needed, a "twinkle-light romantic, with a cool, edgy approach to fun. Both compassionate and loyal to the people i care about and passionate about the little and big things that matter.
I'm a bit of a chameleon...someone with the street smarts of a New Yorker (where i was born and bred), with the free spiritness of a Californian. I have always sat comfortably on the edge of an eclectic circle of friends -- from fans of Burning Man to the opera. I'm most definitely liberal minded and sit more among the "creatives," but on the business side of the fence...only because while i do have an affinity for photography, music, writing and anything that provides a creative outlet -- I'm much better as the wingman for those who have true talents in those fields...which is what i do for a living.
I try to live each day to its fullest, and I'm more of a "doer" than a "thinker"...altho I've been known to overthink things at times. If i had to choose between a day at a spa or ziplining in the jungle, count me in on the zipline. But i do love to relax, but only expect to see me on the beach with a nice mojito vs hanging by the pool.
I don't have a "type", but i am looking for someone who shares my passion for exploring and experiencing new things -- whether it's around the block or across an ocean. Someone who has urban smarts, but small town charm. Someone who is interested in culture, but isn't snobby about it, and who believes playing sports is more fun than watching them on TV. Someone who understands that life is too short to take friends for granted. Family is important to me...and I have two amazing sons that mean the world to me, so it's important that i meet someone who understands and accepts that time with me will sometimes be shared.
I am a romantic at heart (yes, like in the movies)...so if you like to hold hands in the movie theatre, take long walks through the park and listen to street music, make me smile with your dry wit or laugh with your sense of humor, that's a plus, Other qualities i find attractive...someone who has a quiet confidence and intelligence (no show offs plz), a sense of adventure, and a big heart.
Ok, so I've laid my cards on the table. I'm a bit out of my comfort zone throwing out the net in 4000 words or less, but hopefully, i've captured your attention and peaked your interest. By the way, I am told that I look waaay younger than my biological age, and full disclosure, i am actually five years older. ( I just updated my profile due to the high volume of men close to retirement I've attracted), and am hoping to catch the attention of someone within my generation!) People are often shocked when I tell them my age because they assume i'm in my 30's... i guess i need to tip my hat to the asian gene...so, yes, for those who care ...photos are recent. If you're interested, instead of winking...plz send me an email and let's get to know each other.
