ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

Is it just me or does this internet dating thing seem a bit like shopping? This part, however, seems more like marketing.

I've never been much of a marketing person, but here goes:1) I will match any other offers, 2) I provide free shipping if you are within 50 miles of Oak Park, and 3) most important, you can return me for any reason, no questions asked.

Oh,,, and for one woman I can offer an Unlimited Unconditional Lifetime Guarantee (the UULG) for love and friendship.

I am curious, and a life learner. I always have a stack of partially read books from the library. I Google diverse topics and often end up at Wikipedia. I am particularly interested in Public Policy, Psychology, History, and Holistic Medicine.

I run, bike, do a few push-ups and such to keep in reasonable shape. I like to hike and any activity that brings me into nature. I love lightning, thunder, high winds, huge waves, driving rain, blizzard snow storms, the stark stiff cold of Winter, as well as amiable Spring drizzles, bright and breezy Summer days, and my favorite, the rustling, romantic Fall. What better soul food?

I prefer adventure to familiarity and routine. I love spontaneity and hatching spur of the moment plans.

I am practical, have rehabbed houses, designed landscaping, and can fix most things. On that note ladies, "If a man said he'll fix it, he will. There is no need to remind him every 6 months about it!" ¦ )

I try to be honest by saying what is true for me, and by becoming more self-aware. I think some are not able to be honest because they are emotionally disconnected. For others it is too scary. For me, trust is on my short list of what is most important.

It has been said that what most seek in marriage is a witness. I think so. Anything feel lonelier than being in a relationship, and not feeling seen or heard? Charlie Rose just did an interview with Chaz Ebert, Roger Ebert's widow. She described the experience of when she met Roger as "Deep Soul Seeing." A connection like theirs is what I have always sought.

Seems ironic that when younger I easily had infatuations, mostly hormones and unconscious projections. Now, with deep, true intimacy possible (knowing self), it seems harder to find. Yet the desire remains if the heart is soft.

Humor and happiness go together. Sharing a similar sense of humor makes everything better. Experiencing love enables laughing at self.

I just saw something on the Internet which I did not know. I mention it to be helpful: Research has shown that men who are bald in the front of their heads are great thinkers. In contrast, men who are bald on the back of their heads are great lovers.

You're maybe wondering, "But what about if they're totally bald?" Well, those men... They think they are great lovers!

Me? My hair is getting thinner, almost bald, BUT ONLY IN THE BACK! Just saying...

But I digress,

I'm looking for a woman who is emotionally wired to live fully. She is open and honest. She is aware of, and expresses other feelings besides just "happy" (e.g. sad, angry, tender, excited, scared). I am attracted to a spontaneous and creative woman, secure enough to be vulnerable and trusting. She welcomes being held and supported. She is young at heart. In spite of hurts and disappointments, she still has gratitude, hope, imagination, tenderness, excitement and glee.

Btw, Can I just ask, "When the cashier said "Strip down, facing me" How was I to know she meant my debit card?"

Wow, you made it this far?
Thanks,

Pets:

Pet Essay:

I have 2 hilarious Abyssinian cats: Sailor and Jib. They scamper to meet me at the door, race to get where I'm going ahead of me, and love splashing under a running faucet. Pretty sure they think they're dogs. Far be it from me to show them a mirror.

Political views:
Liberal
Sign:

College:
Miami University, Oxford, OH
For fun:

I love movies and don't miss many that are well reviewed. Not into over the top action movies, or horror flicks, but like pretty much anything else (even many that would certainly be considered "chick flicks").

Favorite hot spots:

I like relaxed settings where conversations and friendship flourish. I am less and less attracted to loud entertainment and venues where the main appeal is escape. I tend to like local, and small out of the way spots.

Favorite things:

Love live music (esp. sm. venues) and Youtube concert videos. Favs: Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Hornsby, Dave Matthews, Annie Lennox, Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana, Alison Krauss, David Crosby, Stephen Stills, JT, Missy Higgins, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen.

Asian, Black / African descent, East Indian, Latino / Hispanic, Middle Eastern, Native American, Pacific Islander, White / Caucasian, Other

I am particularly attracted to cultures (and women) that are warm and demonstrative. Probably a reaction to growing up in a reserved family with an abundance of German and Scottish genes expressing themselves (by being unexpressive).

Faith:
Spiritual but not religious
No preference

I experience faith as an attitude towards life. The world was meant as a place for love; and love is the best evidence for God. Anne Lamott said, "I believe when you are telling the truth, you are close to God." That sounds right to me.

Languages:
English
English
Education:
Graduate degree
No preference

I think academic degrees are less significant than being curious, paying close attention, and learning what is important in life. Both in past schooling, and my everyday thoughts, human beings are the subject I find most interesting.
