Date single man from Mendocino, United States. How to start? They say that a joke is a good icebreaker. SoвЂ¦There was this penguin driving his Mercedes in the Mojave desert. (Pleez! DonвЂ™t ask me how he drives with such puny wings; this is a joke.) He sees a blue cloud of smoke billowing out from his engine compartment. Fortuitously, he coaxes the car to a dusty, little town, which miraculously has a garage. ItвЂ™s got to be 120 degrees in the shade , and while heвЂ™s waiting for the mechanic to diagnose the problem, he decides to get an ice cream cone. OH MY GOD! I canвЂ™t finish this joke here! First, I might get dinged by the Match censors. Secondly, and more importantly, I might offend your feminine sensibilities . (I guess youвЂ™ll have to email me for the punchline.)
IвЂ™ve got a close circle of friends who love me. (To know me is to love me, and I do.) Seriously, I think they value my insights, know that I will be there for them whenever they need me, like the dinners that I make, and enjoy my sense of humor.
About me: I enjoy my work and, although it is not remuneratively grand, I take pride in protecting natural treasures that will be there forever. As you know, these are tough times, and I am proud that I am weathering them. Working for myself can be stressful, particularly in this economy, and I started to meditate again, which is helping. I am a kind, generous, and loving person. I try hard to support my partner and work hard at relationships.
Some people say that a good relationship shouldnвЂ™t be hard workвЂ”something along the same lines as вЂњLove means never having to say that youвЂ™re sorry.вЂќ ItвЂ™s been my experience, however, that after the introductory rocket launch, it takes a slow burn, work and serious commitment to make love last. I wouldnвЂ™t be here if IвЂ™d succeeded at this, but I have insights as to why my relationships failed, what my contribution was to their dissolution, and what to do differently. I have been married once, and am not afraid of the вЂњMвЂќ word, but believe that living together makes a lot of sense before making that level of commitment. In the meantime, I am interested only in a monogamous, faithful relationship.
Although I was born in New York City, I spent most of my time in Vermont before coming to California in 1996. I love to visit cities, but feel at home in rural areas. Mendocino is perfect for me. I have a nice house on 5 acres of land. I canвЂ™t see my neighbors, and it is blissfully quiet here. I am a stoneвЂ™s throw from the Pacific, but far enough away to grow tomatoes (cherry, only). At the same time, IвЂ™m a 10- minute drive (no traffic) from some of the best restaurants in Northern California. Almost every weekend there is some kind of cultural event; the capstone being the Mendocino Music Festival! This doesnвЂ™t mean that I wouldnвЂ™t really enjoy getting to know your world.
About you: You enjoy the outdoors, exercise regularly, like I do. Like to go out for dinner, but also relish cooking together with me. I am an opportunivore; you are whatever works for you. As Victor Borgia said, вЂњThe shortest distance between two people is a smile.вЂќ So, you smile a lot, and when you do, it goes straight to my heart. You frequently wear a tank top, tight jeans, and a baseball cap, which drives me insane. YouвЂ™re a good traveler and when our flight is delayed, you say, вЂњHey baby, lets pull out our paperbacks, go get a beer, and go with the flow.вЂќ Most of all you have the capacity to communicate, care, and commit. You accept some of my imperfections, but have no reservations about calling me on something that you canвЂ™t accept. You have a sense of humor that matches mine. (No way could it exceed mine!) You love to touch and be touched.
Thanks for your time. I look forward to hearing from you. How else are you going to know what happened to the penguin?
