Date single man from California, United States. I believe strongly in honesty, trust and respect. I am interested in a wide variety of things and want a partner have interests in some of them also...have an interest and learning and exploring life. I feel the ability for a couple to communicate is paramount...it is important we are able to explain our thoughts to each other both for our mutual enjoyment and to avoid misunderstandings. However, as we all know, love initially grows from some indescribable set of consious and sub-consious emotions and interpretations that we have when we meet someone ....and without 'chemistry' , there is nothing.

Date a man from California, United States. Cow farmer, structural engineer, horse trainer, polo player.
My Dad was a bridge contractor and I grew up working on old steel bridges in the Appalachian mountains of eastern Kentucky and West Virginia. My mother was a a beautiful and educated woman who taught me manners. I live in a log cabin on my bluegrass farm east of Lexington, Kentucky. I also have a small home in the Santa Rosa Mountains south of Palm Desert, California. But my value system is from the coal mining towns of Appalachia.
At 69, I've worked hard, led a Spartan life, and am able to donate a modest yearly sum to charity. World hunger and global warming are causes that hold my attention more than donating to local charities and the performing arts.
I'm interested in meeting a powerful woman.
I want a woman who looks outward, and shares the same perspective of the world as mine. A woman who shares my interests and enjoys my company, and I her company.
A woman who thinks about global issues and what is of value that others haven't yet recognized; what causes to support, and the most efficient strategy to effect change.
I want a woman who is intrigued by the concept that you can actually own part of the earth and who appreciates the structural mechanics of a thoroughbred.

Meet someone special from United States. Life is good. Retirement is great. I am healthy and financially comfortable. I stay busy with volunteering at three different agencies. I enjoy helping people and giving back to the community. Living in the Sacramento area opens up all kinds of possibilities for activities. I enjoy having access to the foothills, the mountains and the coast. Love taking drives to Tahoe, the gold country and Point Reyes National Seashore, for example. We have great cultural venues such as Three Stages, Crocker Art Museum and the Mondavi Center. I have spent many enjoyable hours biking the American River trail. I enjoy country and ballroom dancing and there are many places for that. ItвЂ™s great exercise, the people are nice and itвЂ™s fun, too. There are innumerable good restaurants.
So, all in all, thereвЂ™s only one thing missing: a special lady with whom to share my life. I would love to have someone hold hands with, hug, kiss, talk to, spend time with, take out to dinner on special occasions or for no reason at all, other than because we wanted to be together. But, I donвЂ™t want to smother her or be smothered. Me time is important for both persons.
If you feel we would be a good match please email or wink.
Date people from United States. Each day is such a luscious feast of opportunity, joy and pleasure. I just want to gorge myself all the time, though,.......tend to be more methodical. I'm desiring and open to giving, receiving and sharing that greater expansion that only a close, intimate relationship brings forth. I'm looking for a lady with agility of body, mind and spirit who loves herself just the way she is and has faith in the process of change and adventure.
What can I say? .......... I trust too easily, intend to be objective yet know what I like, without judging differences anything other than different. I want to see clearly without bias or prejudice of any kind. A favorite quote is, "Education is a process of learning how to learn... and to learning there is no end." by Brand Blanshard, another is, "The more I know, the more I know I don't know". I'd rather be happy than right
Meet a soulmate from United States. Photos taken 5/15/12
Within the next 12 months, my plan is to
permanently relocate to San Diego County,
...preferably close to U.C. San Diego.
There are those who say that once people
pass a certain age (30, 40,50-- whatever)
that it is impossible to ever re-create...
a relationship that was like the kind
of relationship we created when we
were in our late teens or early twentiesвЂ”
A relationship that is close, loving, affectionate
expressive,and caring-- where we treasure
each other deeply.
Well, I'm here to testify that that kind of
relationship is exactly the kind of relationship
that I want-
And, believe that I can make happen.
But, as you know, I canвЂ™t make that happen
just by myself.
It would take the both of us.
So, if thatвЂ™s the kind of relationship that
you're also up forвЂ¦
then I invite you to keep reading:
Would you have loved to have had dinner with
your partner plus Gilda Radner and Gene Wilder?
If so, we're off to a good start.
My ideal relationship:
We're smart but we live in our heart.
We're a couple who feel most alive and
happy when we're emotionally close.
Does this mean that we want
matching ankle tattoos? Nope!
Making one another happy makes
each of us happy.
We have no use for the love of power,
but we thrive on the power of love.
In her values and behavior,
in her way of being in the worldвЂ”
My ideal mate is her own woman--
A woman who knows
SHE IS A MAN'S EQUALвЂ”
not dominating, not submissive.
Regardless of how successful she
may be in any or all of the other parts
of her life...
My ideal mate is also soft, gentle,
She is comfortable with herself.
Because our mutual trust is strong,
we're not afraid to be vulnerable with
My mate enjoys exercise and a squeaky
clean body--mine and hers.
She enjoys being, at times, irreverent,
playful, silly, affectionate, sexual.
She has a minimum daily requirement
of at least a dozen hugs and kisses.
She enjoys travel and she enjoys being home.
She may like to garden, and to camp--including
snuggling in a sleeping bag.
She enjoys conversations that span
a range of topics:
History, art, literature, philosophy, politics, music,
psychology, movies, current events, MSNBC, and
anything else of her own that she'd like to contribute.
My mate is creative, original, and, however she
chooses to express her creativity,
I'm her biggest fan...
supportive, appreciative, and admiring.
We offer each other self disclosure and feedback,
honestly, but with empathy and compassion...
Each of us has an "abundance" attitude,
which makes both of us givers, not takers.
She enjoys animals--and doesn't have to be
coaxed to scratch the dog, the cat (or me)
behind the ears.
She enjoys collaborating--Maybe that means
our cooking together, singing, or our writing
a children's book or a screen play...
Even though it's not a part of my job,
I'm professionally trained in several
different types of massage...
Even if some part of each day is
spent with each of us working on separate
we enjoy taking a a break every so often,
and doing something like dancing to Eric Clapton's
"You Look Wonderful Tonight."
The current project that I'm working on
(developing a workshop) is making me feel
who needed about two years to create
his statue of David in Florence, Italy...
And, speaking of Florence, how fun it
would be to visit that city together.
And, if we've gone that far, going to
the Greek isles, would also be fun.
I do not drink-
Not because I'm an uptight teatotaler
or a recovering alcoholic.
Alcohol simply doesn't get me high.
Instead, It just goes to the back of my neck
and hurts for the next 24 hours...
Thanks for listening.
