ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

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

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

Oh,,, and for one woman I'll offer an Unlimited Unconditional Lifetime Guarantee (the UULG).

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 like TED videos, and programs like NOVA, Frontline, and Charlie Rose on PBS.

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 than this?

I prefer adventure (RU1?) 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've noticed that some are not able to be honest because they are emotionally disconnected. For others it just is not a priority. For me, trust is on my short list of what is most important in a relationship.

Stating the obvious, intimate sharing in/of life is a matter of communicating. It has been said that what most seek in marriage is a witness. Probably so. Anything feel lonelier than being in a relationship, and not feeling seen or heard? I've usually received high marks for noticing and listening, which comes naturally. Full self expression is more my challenge, and I am always working to earn "most improved".

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.

Sharing a similar sense of humor makes everything better. I see the humor in many things, and have been known to chuckle at curious times. To me, a woman who can laugh at herself is sexy!

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

Attraction and chemistry is exciting, and the promising beginning, but more is needed for love to grow deeper over many days and years. My prescription for our relationship: We both value our love and make it a priority, each is able to communicate what is going on inside and freely expresses appreciation and affection, each listens well and strives to understand (no narcissism here), forgiveness is quickly sought and given, ...and then there is ROMANCE, PASSION, and a ton of FUN and LAUGHTER!

Let's be friends. Let's be lovers. We could be co-conspirators; spreading some joy and creating a better place. We both know by now that it is more rewarding to give than to receive.

Wow, you made it this far?
Thanks!

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.

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.
