ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

Out of the corner of your eye, you notice that the man climbing the ladder to thatch the roof of that sensational thick-walled cottage in Redmond is not merely wearing corduroy pants, but extra-wide-wale corduroy pants...

Well now that I have your attention, I actually don't have any clothes from the J Peterman catalogue... My wardrobe consists of Carhartts, business suits, summer casual, poly pro and neoprene.

Me: Tall, dark and handsome small business owner seeking a companion for outdoor activities and other adventures. I'm outgoing, positive, handy around the house and can cook a wide variety of dinners spicing it up with ingredients from warm climates (and my garden). My children live with me every other week, I am involved in their lives and being a dad is probably the best thing I do. A few words that have been used to describe me: genuine, consistent, loyal, patient, kind and lately a "gentleman farmer" (I aspire to that one).

Though not a hardcore athlete, I stay active with a walk, hike, mountain bike, swim or ski and lately my yoga practice ... I grew up on the east coast and appreciate honest communication, I like the formality of the east coast with a first and last name introduction, a firm handshake (for men of course), eye contact and a bit of sarcastic humor. I have traveled and moved from the East to Colorado '83-'89, West to Seattle since '89, traveled throughout Asia and Europe, love weekend road trips to get outdoors or meander through local communities in search of treasures.

You: Nice, smart, feminine, funny, considerate, adventuresome, caring, centered and intelligent. You know what you want (and don't want) in a relationship. You have been married, probably have kids (the shared experience thing) and are looking for that man who is not like all the others, who has not exactly followed the crowd, but lives life with a certain ethical value that you admire. You have traveled and are grateful for all that we have here in the USA. You love the outdoors as well as off the beaten path urban (and suburban) hole's in the wall. You appreciate my interests and I appreciate yours.

If you are wondering what the definition of "Lagom", it is a Swedish word with no direct English equivalent, meaning "just the right amount" , my new years mantra for 2014. Also, I am spending most of the summer finishing my masters in sustainability at Harvard and living in Wellesley Hills, thus the bi-coastal listing.
