My roots are embedded in the East Coast.. but I spent too many years working in downtown New York City, so I transferred to San Diego to take on a new challenge. I wanted to be an active dad for my two children and the transfer allowed me to work New York hours from the West Coast. I retired (probably the wrong description) early to be with the kids...With them gone now I am snooping around for the next financial challenge.
Love to travel. But I am not a big city Four Seasons guy. I like to go to interesting places and explore.. favorite trips include a safari, the Galapagos Islands, Machu Picchu, Cuba, Asia,South America.. I have Iceland on my radar for the spring and eventually want to conquer Australia and New Zealand..
My kids are the love of my life. But I also love my friends. They are so important.. To me life is about connecting with other people. My friends would say I am easy going, friendly and have a good sense of humor..love to laugh..they also call me the instigator..I like to organize nights out, parties, and trips...
I am a pleaser, in that i get my joy in making someone happy and feel wanted...I find I have an interesting balance in liking and respecting someone who is independent,assertive,intelligent, hard working,creative verses their dependence..the first part being very important but they still must have some space left for me/us..
I am in good shape (high school weight) and go to the gym 5 days a week...I love golf, skiing,yoga and have recently taken up paddle boarding..I used to run marathons, triathlons,races and for fun...I played tennis and basketball on my college team..
I eat very healthy..my favorite appliance is my 3 hp blender that I use daily combining strange combos of food into smoothies...my plagiarized moto is "every human being is responsible for the maintenance of their own body"
To me life is about connecting...connecting with people on different levels makes it interesting...I connect best with someone who has a bubbly personality,a good sense of humor,loves to laugh, enjoys athletic and personal challenges, takes care of her body and health,someone who likes being with friends,a do-gooder, and a best friend who loves travel as well as quiet time,a cuddlier,is non judgmental,confident,intelligent,assertive and challenging....I want to connect with someone that takes happiness/love to a new level...
DISCLOSURE:I am single again after a long marrage...divorce pending
