I am a playful, successful, dark-eyed professional; an Ohioan (originally) with solid Midwestern values. I’m even-tempered and responsible, athletic and unencumbered, with an edgy sense of humor.
I've been in San Diego since 1976 and I love it! I like to get out and about, for dinners and entertainment around town, or on road trips around SoCal, sightseeing and exploring new things (museums, etc.). Fundamentally, though, I’m a homeboy, comfortable hanging out or working at home. I own my home and live on my own, with few responsibilities. Favorite home pastimes include reading, gardening, movies, poker and other card games, board games, home brewing, and restoring classic cars. Occasionally, I visit friends in the Bay area, the East coast, or just drive over to Palm Springs for a tennis tourney or golf. In any case, I’m always happy to return home (It’s hard to beat SD, no?). I aim to expand my leisure traveling, and I would love a “partner in crime” to accompany me.
I love being outdoors. I’m healthy and fit, and a life-long athlete. I play tennis (at a fairly high level), golf (at a middling level), volleyball, ping-pong and other “fun” sports. I tend to avoid jogging, gym sessions and similar “grinder” activities (too much like work). I do, however, like to laugh till it hurts. Note: All parts are packaged as original and functioning as designed (though out of warranty).
I've spent my career in science and computers, a rewarding and satisfying profession. I could retire comfortably now, but I’m still having fun! I think I would miss the challenge (and my co-workers of 30 years, too). I’m not a workaholic, but believe in a balanced lifestyle, and I have ample time to share with someone special.
More "Favorite Things": dark (humor, eyes, chocolate), India pale ale, drop volleys, 7-iron, Groove Salad, Restoration Hardware, Mr. Natural, salmon-skin hand rolls, Trader Joe's, semi-colons, slab-side Lincolns, Transvaal daisies, full moons.
Seeking: A long-term relationship with a bright, affectionate, secure woman, trim and healthy. Someone thoughtful and responsible, but also flexible and (sometimes) spontaneous. Big extra credit for a creative imagination and a well-developed sense of the absurd. I prefer low-maintenance Tom-boys to girly-girls.
Avoiding: Drama queens, Tea-partiers, Kardashians.
