The one thing I am passionate about...
Adventure - learning - doing. I want to meet someone who can bring out the best in me and I in her. I really want a relationship with someone that is intimate emotionally, spiritually, socially, physically, and sexually. I want to meet someone who is open, fun, active, and playful, but also someone who wants to contribute to making the world a better place for all of God's children.
I typically spend my leisure time
Barefoot - indoors and outdoors. I love the sun and heat. Gardening, fixing, tending my 4 horses on 10 acres, fishing, tenting, cross-country skiing, going to movies, reading, traveling to Europe and across the USA.
The most influential person in my life has been
Playfulness: physically active, agile, and strong. I love to hike.Someone who is trustworthy, honest, reliable, and spiritual. I am looking for a friend that cares, listens, and wants to do things.
The first thing people notice about me
I think most people notice that I act much younger than my age. Most of my closest friends are 10 to 20 years younger than I am and I enjoy being with them and doing things with them more than my peers: Weird, huh?
The last book I read and enjoyed
THE DEAMON IN THE FREEZER by Richard Preston - a true novel about the threat of viruses like smallpox and ebola naturally and in biological warfare. What I most liked was the educational nature of the book based upon factual names, places, and dates.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My spiritual faith which has sustained me after my wife's death at age 55 from breast cancer.
- My children, family, and very close friends.
- My health and ability to enjoy life and travel.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I wish a lot of people would know that I'm not thinking what they think I am thinking. I'm very unassuming and nonjudgmental.
Friends Describe me as
Caring, Good listener, Physically Fit, Spiritual
A little more about me
Yes. Long fingernails really turn me off !!!! As I try to figure out what God wants me to do with the rest of my life, I would like to find a partner who would enjoy biking around Europe, doing a service project like AIDS education in Africa, touring the USA for 2-3 months of the year and spending the rest of the time with and near our grandchildren.
