As I'm not the least bit egocentric, this is a bit difficult, so here goes my stream of consciousness. Who I am: I am confident and intelligent and have seen a great many things in my short time on this planet. I like excitement in my life whether its a person, place or thing - my mind thrives on stimulation. I grew up on a ranch in the Santa Ynez Valley, I've lived and traveled overseas, I've had several careers. I love to explore, to hike, spend time with family and friends, and I enjoy my chosen profession. I love to be outdoors, but like to visit the city as well . Why I am using the internet: I have never had a difficult time meeting and dating the opposite sex, but I think that using the internet could perhaps refine the entire process. Not to mention - the bar scene is getting a bit mundane. If you'd like to know more - then ask away - I'm an open book.
Brains and beauty are an extremely rare combination. If you have both, consider yourself very lucky. I firmly believe that in most cases looks are only skin deep. I would much rather find someone who is first and foremost a decent person and if they happen to be beautiful - well great, but that is not the most essential component in this equation. Does this sound like you ? Compassionate, Honest, Decent, Loyal, Interesting but interested in others, Intelligent, Independent, Athletic and Adventurous. Do you like to hop on a plane at the drop of a hat ? Do you mind breaking a nail or getting your hair wet ? Sleeping in a tent or sitting by a fire ? Basically, if you like to have fun and are looking for an old fashioned guy, then perhaps we'd get along. If this sounds like you, then email away - I'd love to hear from you.
