Hello! Hello! Thanks for stopping in!
I believe meeting is the only productive way of learning about someone. Either people want to meet, or all of the emails in the world are just fluff. So I ask anyone responding to actually be interested in meeting people (even if not me).
I have had several committed relationships, and I was true. They lasted anywhere from over one year each -- to over three years each in two cases. I have never been married. I never fell "enough" in love to feel that it would be forever.
I like people and would love to start with a new friend. Take it from there.
I enjoy continuous learning: history, technology, nature, economics, fitness, nutrition, cultures, music, museums. I love to read and discuss things. I also work out and am very interested in healthiness (such as proper foods, etc.). Jazz is my favorite music, but I also like contemporary (like 93.3 FM) and classical (esp Mozart).
Height is six (6) foot and about a half inch. 72.5 inches. Weight is 205 and dropping. My goal is to come in around 190 - 195 at end of the year. I am actually medium weight, but swim a lot, and so much of my weight is chest, shoulders, etc. Not skinny yet, but not fat by any means. I get taken for early 40s almost every one that I meet.
My preference is for dark hair and dark eyes. Race and nationality not issues.
If it clicks, I love kissing. And holding hands. I love to give back rubs. For that matter, if you do not like the hug | kiss | caress | touch stuff that men and women do together, then we will not be a good fit.
