I am a bright (sometimes too smart for my own good;-), well-educated man, with what I can best describe as a broad inclusive world view. While in many ways I am quite content with my life, I miss having some one to share it with. Someone who might also challenge me with new thoughts and other ideas about how to live life, and, most importantly, love. I am mostly retired and hope to do a reasonable amount of traveling and continue exploring the world. My trips abroad have always been to one place or country for a month or two...or three - I am not a whirlwind tour kind of guy. My interests are many and varied, from kayaking to burning-man. I especially enjoy the out of doors, but also films, plays…or anything interesting for that matter. I nearly "always look on the bright side of life" (to quote the end scene from 'Life of Brian" - my all-time favorite movie scene). I have one rule that has guided me through life for the last 39 years: "when in doubt, err on the side of uncertainty" or to put it another way: "when in doubt, err on the side of adventure". I would like to meet a smart, playful, friend, companion, and lover - kind of a soul-mate, to use a much over-used term.
I often think that there may be only four important criteria in searching for a partner - common morals, a similar sense of humor, a shared intelligence, and of course, that one indefinable: chemistry.
