I am a man of contrasts (and think the most interesting people are). I welcome provocative, serious conversations over dinner coupled with some really tasteless jokes; a great revival of Eugene O'Neill followed by falling asleep together watching "Nurse Jackie." I am a romantic (known to leave love notes on the bathroom mirror in the AM); Love to smile, laugh and see my partner do the same. (If the eyes are the windows to the soul, a great laugh is kind of the side door). Have a very creative job... but looking for someone to make my life creative OUTSIDE of work... inspire me, share books, music, push me to be more adventurous. I promise to do the same! I love music... and think of it as a metaphor. I am always looking for and love those things that "make my heart sing."..(like the salty taste at the back of my lovers neck). It all begins with a smile.I've been in 2 great long term relationship and learned great lessons from it. It's about trust, honesty, sharing, "grace," being at peace...bringing out the best in one another. Very much want to share those things with someone again. Looking to meet someone between 45 and 50. (Though not set in stone). Let's be fun, silly, smart, sexy, adventurous in every way.
