Date single man from California, United States. While I would idealy become involved with a Japanese or Japanese American lady, I might settle for some one else. I enjoy the novel in life, the new and different. I have most everything I want, and most of the toys and tools. I thrive on intimacy whether it is the familiarity of a shared outlook or joke, physical or more. I attempt to make life as simple and untroubled as possible. While I flew in viet nam (helicopters), and have rock climbed a 550 foot verticle granite wall, panned for gold, saved lives and attempt to educate people in the natural world, I am not particularly driven or seduced by much. My current passion is , and I expect will always be is the ocean. I have one or two other interests, but mostly they lie in sharing the experience of living in the natural world as well as the social world.
By chacter and formal training, I am patient, thorough, sensitive, thoughtful and move slowely but steadily through the day. I have a few handicaps and I let them guide me in part. However, the difficulties are more a guide than an hinderance.
I would like my partner to have one or two passions of her own. I certainly request that she "speak her mind and truth". I was married for 17 years to a woman that did not like to reveal her deeper needs and fears. We became divorced through deceit and denial born of reactions to a life threatning disease. Fortunatly, she is still alive (after15 years and remarried) and engaged with my daughters.
I have been effectivley single, for 16 years with one or two short engagements. What I find in the women that have been interested is that they want to live a life fully but are unwilling to hold themselves to their highest wishes. Seemingly, the want someone else to do their inner work towards their peace and inner joy so they don't have too. Sooooo.... I am seeking someone responsible to their own lives. I cannot and should not attempt to do some one elses deeply personal work.
Sillyness and joy are preferred too!
