ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

The short version:

*Pros, at least for some (these are unaudited claims):
Articulate and imaginative
Funny and quick-witted, you?
Proficient, creative, and willing cook
Tall, lanky body type, plus 5-10 lbs since the days (185 lbs now)
Athletic, fit, and active (not 6-pack triathlete fit, but good shape); minimal couch time
Very blue eyes
Positive outlook
Social (extrovert in the technical sense: I get energy from others- I'm ENTJ)
Trained at massage

*Won’t work for some:
Not bald yet, but thinning, and getting the salt and pepper
I do look my age (thanks sun!), an honest 55 (but have a youthful physical energy)

I'm looking for matches who live or work within 30 minutes of 94306; no bridges or long commutes please, though SF or S. Marin are fine as I regularly visit my sailboat in Sausalito.

I'm grateful to have my 14 year old son 50% of the time, Friday switch: week on, then a week off; a good match is in a similar situation or accepting of mine. Daughter in college. I have a flexible work schedule, if you do that is a plus (weekday dates, woot!).

The (maybe too) long of it:
I appreciate Match, but it is a challenge: we choose from a catalog based on a few photos and a few words that may have been written by a third party. They offer a fraction of the things that a real-life meeting offers: dimensionality, the energy of voice, movement, humor, and style, that je ne sais quoi that we can sense across a crowded room. Match to me is simply a good blind-date generator, so prefer to speak or meet rather than exchange many emails.

I'm a funny, fun, and playful guy (even my ex will give me a reference) who laughs at life's frequent absurdities, and at my own. I’d like a monogamous LTR. I am seeking a highly verbal (command of English and idiom is essential), playful, funny, inquisitive, and outgoing woman, maybe a bit unconventional, with a love of food, wine, music and the outdoors, open to exploring the world and the meaning of life, and sharing her stories. I'm a romantic when it comes to quiet, candlelit dinners and conversation at home. I'm ready for travel especially on roads less-traveled (Rick Steves is an oracle), long-term travel would be great in 4 years when kids are out. I hope you, as do I, avoid being a slave to society's expectations. You are up for working on the challenge of communicating as a couple. Obviously my previous relationships didn't last forever, but I've learned from each and believe we can all become better partners if we keep trying. My ex and I are amicable co-parents. I'm financially responsible and hope you are as well.

I try to focus on being present, smiling, laughing, helping or giving every day, gratitude, and keeping positive thoughts. Spirituality is important: I seek a partner who is eager to explore the subject, but I'm not seeking agreement.

You are energetic and athletic, or at least fit, don't watch a lot of TV every night. You like some of : yoga, walking, outdoor games, bicycling (I ride over driving most days, low speed cycling is fine), water sports: swimming, kayaking, sailing. I love short camping trips with the comforts of an inflatable mattress and hot showers, as well as nice lodging and dining in natural or urban locales.

Let's not take non-urgent phone calls, emails, or texts while on a date.

I'm not compelled to remarry, but open to the possibility. I love to cook, I get the kids to eat their veggies, keep the larder stocked, don't do fast food, do laundry and keep the house, um, technically sanitary if not neat, so I don't need someone to "take care of me" or mine, but would like to share or alternate cooking when we stay in.

I am grateful for all I have; I don't need more stuff, I'm more focused on relationships. I love basketball, play 3-4x/wk and coach my son's team. I'm a board member and guide for non-profits.

I respond to all emails except wacky ones or out of my stated profile.
