ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

I am looking for a playmate, a friend and companion, and I greatly prefer the company of women. "Dating-as-mating" is a bit too intense for me at the moment, too fraught and too high stakes. I'm open to a deeper relationship, but at the moment I am just looking for someone to share some adventures and hang out with when we are both inclined. Maybe we can grow together. My goal is to reduce the pressure and the expectations, to engage someone as a friend. Beyond that, we shall see, time will tell, etc. I handle my own scheduling, so if you keep odd hours, or would prefer to start with lunch, I can accommodate you. Don't be shy, I would love to hear from you! Think Prince, "Kiss." ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For me, most women are beautiful in their way, I am not making this about looks, and I don't have an ideal about body size or shape or ethnicity, or whatever - I am easy to please. In my own opinion, I'm not super good looking, but I'm okay, maybe a bit above average. Just feel like you are reasonably comparable to me, in terms of looks, and I am probably fine with you. Please travel well, and happily. Laugh with me, walk and talk with me, make love with me, DANCE with me. Feel free to sing along, I do. Be interested in outdoor activities, (biking, hiking, canoeing, etc.) and be open to new experiences. Enjoy museums and good restaurants, the performing arts. But do feel free to suggest a rock concert, or a blues show, or a dance club. I will drink with you, but I don't enjoy just sitting and drinking for lack of anything better to do. Four twenty friendly, not phobic about smokers. If you want to go clothes shopping, I would love to go along to help. I am very open to possibilities, and I want to have someone with whom I have FUN. I can be pretty serious and intense, so it is easy to get that from me if you need to go that direction sometimes. But I want to just relax and enjoy for a while, before any really heavy conversations take place. Think Del Amitri, "Roll to Me." ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- About me. My name is Roger. I am a philosopher (yes, really, used to teach Logic and Ethics as well) and make a reasonable living at it. Physically fit, emotionally mature, spiritually aware, and socially conscious. I laugh and smile easily and often; dance and sing; keep a heavy bag, drums and guitars in my living room for random engagement. I love to give massage, and I have my own massage table; also interested in Tantra. Early to bed and early to rise, books (biography, history, poetry, philosophy), music (eclectic, listening always, playing sometimes), writing, working out, exploring, and evolving. My home (12th floor apartment downtown) is clean and peaceful, spacious, not pretentious, great views (the RenCen is my night light). I am not wealthy, but I will almost always choose quality over value. I intend to live beautifully, gracefully, simply, and focus on experiences rather than material objects. Fridays I buy fresh flowers, simply because I like flowers. Reared in poverty, but I am a suit, very privileged, good hotels and restaurants, art museums, performing arts. I am an alpha male, other men generally address me as "Sir." Powerful appetites, physically, emotionally, intellectually, spiritually. I have plenty of room for growth, and I am aware of many/most of my weaknesses and limitations. I have built my life on my commitment to keep getting better and better, to the best of my abilities. Think Muddy Waters, "Manish Boy."
