I am a creative and engaging man interested in meeting other men. Although I am definitely looking for a romantic partner, I am open to friendships and non-committed relationships. My dating philosophy is: Nothing ventured, nothing gained. I feel there is too much perfectionism in this world and I am opposed to that--in other words I accept from the beginning that you and I are flawed, imperfect people just trying to make connections. I live my life by the "golden rule"--treat others the way you expect to be treated.
I think of myself as compassionate, sincere, direct, emotional, expressive, masculine, assertive.
Turn-ons: a sharp mind, a fit body, purple and sky blue, waterfalls, canyons, Hugh Jackman, Vermeer, anything to counter global warming, animated political discussions
Turn-offs: poor hygiene, excessive cell phone use and texting, Tea Party, Philip Glass, my upstairs neighbor
