ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

The whole self description thing I find a bit tedious. To make it more fun and interesting I like taking characters out of pop culture and finding traits they have that I have in common or aspire to. I used to be a big fan of James Bond and Conan the Barbarian when I was younger. Obvious reasons I'm sure - everyone admires sophistication, quick thinking, strength, honor etc. My favorites now are Don Draper, Tyrion Lanister and Eric Northman. They are deeply flawed but they always strive to be better people (or vampires) today than they were yesterday. And that is something I absolutely DO strive for. They are highly intelligent and resourceful, loyal and protecting to those they love but unforgiving to their enemies (not that forgiveness is necessarily a bad thing). And most importantly, they definitely know how to treat a lady. The thing I like about good vampire media (no, not Twilight) is the ultimate moral struggle they face since they need to take life to continue their own. True Blood is a silly show but I find the Northman character interesting as his maker Godrick is constantly showing up in visions as his conscience trying to guide him on the path toward peace and compassion even though his nature is monstrous by definition. And I love how Don in Mad Men has mastered the philandering nature he had with Betty and stayed faithful to Megan in the face of some strong temptations (at least so far).

Probably the next most important thing in life after a deep and strong moral character is a good sense of humor. To continue in the pop media vein I have to give Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld my highest admiration for their ability to extract humor out of the most mundane aspects of everyday life - something I find myself doing. With a partner who is on the same wavelength, there is always laughter about the most idiotic things - a fertile ground for love to grow. Well enough of the TV stuff. Believe it or not I ration myself to only a couple hours a week of the best cable. Life is too short.

If you've read this far hopefully you find me at least a little bit interesting? I'll also say I am a big believer in monogamy and am here genuinely looking for true love and romance and not any kind of casual encounters. I love to to give and receive lots of physical affection and am not the least bit shy about public displays within reason.

As to what type of person I'd like to attract, the only hard requirement is take excellent care of your health and fitness as I do. The rest is magic, magnetism and chemistry. And yes ladies the pics are recent and I look like them. I know many of you are concerned about that. Actually I probably look better now being a bit more ripped since I've been hitting the weights pretty hard and doing some brutal uphill in the local mountains.

A NOTE ON THE SUBJECT OF AGE: Like many here I chose to understate my age due to the filtering mechanisms of the site. I know some will find this offensive and assume it indicates a flaw in my integrity. Others won't care. I have had significant relationships with women ranging from 15 years younger than me to 10 years older and the most loving couple I know is 25 years apart. My personal opinion is that age is completely irrelevant to love and romance. I would never dream of asking a woman her age or if her stated age on the site was accurate.

What free time would that be? Just kidding - seriously, just the normal stuff most people like, particularly music events and live theatre. Home improvement, landscaping, remodeling, camping, road trips, photography.

Fiji, Palau, Cayman Islands, Dominica, Mammoth, Steamboat, Tahoe, Utah, Central Coast, Portland. Florida Keys, hikes and bike rides in local mountains.

Favorite things:

Mad Men (obviously). I ration my TV watching so I pick my shows carefully. Game of Thrones (huge fan, read all the books several times each), Dexter, Homeland, Tudors, True Blood (yeah I know, silly but still fun)

Last read:

Everything by Neal Stephenson. I tend to lean towards speculative, historical and otherworldly. For my entertainment reading I like to suspend disbelief.
