ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

I never thought I'd appear in a catalog, yet this feels a lot like shopping online for a relationship, doesn't it? Maybe I should change my pictures to keep up with the changing seasons.

So, about me...

This is such an incredibly subjective topic that Match suggests we write about how our friends would describe us. Have you tried asking your friends for quotes? I did, and mine were thrilled to contribute, but after sifting through all that creativity, there wasn't much left to print. The most usable quotes I got included "charming, sophisticated, spontaneous, traditional with an edge, and indispensible" although I have two xgf's who would dispute that last one. Well, I am traditional and was raised with classic manners (I hold doors and check behind me so that they don't close on someone else) yet there's no trace of stuffy and rigid.

I'm an adventurer, big time, and love to explore to see new places and revisit favorites. Europe and the Caribbean are at the top of my list and I've brought friends with me for the past several years to share the experiences. I also enjoy surprising others as I feel it helps keep life fresh. An instant-adventure can't be topped, and that's where "spontaneous" comes in. I'm more of a "do-er" than "watch-er", more active than passive (very much a self-starter), and definitely more a communicator than a mystery, which helps avoid misunderstandings. That, coupled with a sense of humor, is indispensible in both business and personal life. Volunteering is also a part of my life as you can see in the pics.

No profile would be complete without "I'm just as comfortable in a black tie as I am in jeans. I like candlelight dinners and walks on the beach". BTW, I'm still looking for a profile that says "I hate laughing". That would be unique! Also, you probably noticed the absence of the prerequisite shirtless iPhone selfie taken in a bathroom mirror. I had to draw the line somewhere...

I've heard that it's important to make it clear that I actually am 50 (not a sixty-something posing as someone younger). Why am I 50 and have never been married? This wasn't what I expected, but my relationships have been long-term and time goes by quickly. Also, I consider my being 6'3 and 200lbs "about average", so that's what I put.

About you...

Are you spirited, expressive, and say-how-you-feel? Great! Do you believe anything can be done if you put your mind to it? Awesome! Do you raise hell for fun but can also enjoy quite moments with your co-conspirator in life? We need to meet. The last thing I need is an obedient stepford wife. If that's you, then there are plenty of guys out there, but I say what's on my mind and I respect a woman who does the same.

I believe in the saying "birds of a feather flock together" and being able to share common interests is a huge plus. Of course, we don't have to like doing all the same things for fun and I'm open to most new experiences except things like shoplifting and parachuting (I have a hard time exiting a perfectly good airplane in flight). Speaking of planes, it would also be nice if you were within a reasonable distance as earning sky miles shouldn't be a perk of us getting together for coffee.

I realize I'm burying this near the end, but it's a great test to see if anyone reads profiles vs just glances at pictures and spam-winks. Please DO NOT wink! It basically says "There's nothing in your profile that interests me enough to write about". I'd pay extra for the ability to disable winks for my account. Same goes for "Likes"...

By the way, my headline refers to my dog. He's always with me, like a shadow, but he wandered off to find a sunny spot on the floor. I thought that was poetic.
