I am a committed father to my grown children, none of whom live with me (but several are close by). I have lived now for a total of eight years in a Spanish speaking countries, and this has been formative for me in my life. I am intelligent, and find intelligence in a woman magical... it may be the vey best aphrodisiac ever. I like way too many things to attend to properly, so have put many things on the shelf for now. I do read, like plants, outdoor sports (participating not necessarily watching), foreign travel, deep questions of life, and light happy experiences. I enjoy great conversation, movies, interesting technology, and connecting with people of all stripes. I have an attachment to water and the outdoors, and find peace there. I like the arts, antiques and hole in the wall bars with a hot R/B band or tenor sax. I can dance to just about anything that moves me, but cannot remember any steps. I feel life and people deeply, see things a little differently than most, and am grateful for this gift of life.
I am emotional to the point of crying at movies, weddings, graduations and great truths ( I will also jump the guy who gives me any trouble over this). I am still a romantic that believes in soulmates, the sparkle in a woman's eye, the miracle of nature, and the future of mankind, although I see enough to know when certain people are mucking things up. I like to write, and hope to do more than I have. I love to connect with the energy of young people, as well as the wisdom of older, wiser souls. If you are someone who is still learning and growing, eclectic and diverse, intelligent and somewhat eccentric, it would be nice to make contact. I can be friends with many kinds of women, and enjoy their interesting sides, but to really be attracted and intrigued, she should be: fit enough to show she cares, attractive, sensual, self possessed, independent, interesting and good at what she does, happy, able to be herself and enjoy even mundane moments. If there is no chemistry between us, I can remain a good friend, but still wish for the passion that ensues when you find someone that is hot to you (It has been a while, but I will hold out till the end if necessary). A women who can see and feel those things that women are magical at, who inspires poetry and angst and passion and desire. Who is centered enough to relate in a real way with someone else, and has let the tough experiences we all have had make her better, not needier. Did I mention zany, spontaneous, capable of being casual yet sophisticated, capable of relating to animals and nature, not held captive by material things so much as an incredible sunset or a magnificent moment? I always, in the end, find reality much more compelling than masquerade! I don't care if you no longer look 24, have children or not (I like children, including mine sometimes), or what you drive or do. I prefer seeing someone who smiles easily, from the heart, than a contrived and artificial person, and have enough knocks in my life to sense the latter. I would really like to meet someone who is real with them selves and others, not prone to excessive drama, and centered enough to know the difference!
I split time between here and Mexico because of my career. If that bothers you, I understand. If you do not see yourself being ok with this (or even coming with me) so be it. I do understand that this is not for everyone anyway...
I hope you actually exist, as I am impatient of crafting you in my mind. The upside of this is that I will already know you when we meet!
