The usual mass of contradictions, smart but sometimes as dumb as a post, agile but sometimes klutzy, very easy but often stubborn, very trusting but sometimes wary, serious yet often silly, sardonic yet compassionate, cynical yet gullible, self-deprecating but proud... You get the picture: most of the usual man faults, with a few compensating virtues thrown in. Adventurous, love the sea, like to try new experiences. Have eclectic tastes, sort of renaissance man type of thing, but without the great age. Fitness is important in a potential mate because I'd like someone who basically enjoys doing the same kinds of things, whether it's a weekend getaway to Catalina, fishing or diving in exotic places, hiking the mountains or just exploring. In short I'm pretty active and you'll rarely find me just vegging around. I like to read and read at least one book a week, sometimes two. Enjoy the frisson of mutual chemistry and sensuality Have been very fortunate and blessed in my past relationships and hope that cyberspace holds someone who just "clicks" with me.What am I looking for...Well, that special someone, of course... ! I'm open minded, and while we've all got lists, I'd love to be surprised by someone who's off the beaten path, as it were. You should be reasonably active (ie walking to the car should not be a major problem). I don't mind a little overweight, and waif thin doesn't do it for me: I prefer my woman to look like very definitely like a woman. Most of all, I guess, we should be comfortable together, but able to give space when it's needed. Sense of humor, brains, sensuality are a must-have. Do have a photo, don't be offended if I don't right back if I don't think we match. Hint: girls a photo that has you wearing sunglasses, is blurry and taken from 300 yards away doesn't help!
